But this is a vanishingly small percentage of all Muslims. Snake-man was speaking of the entire religion.

No, I was referring to the radical ones.

My sisters father is Islamic. He actually moved here from Jordan. I did see much of their religion that seemed to odd to me. The only thing I hold aginst most Islamic males is their view of women.

Fascinating article, followed by rather... interesting dialogue (albeit digital dialogue).

Personally, I do not wish to blame any religion for the actions of a few. I have several friends who are Muslim - even my favourite teacher at school, before he left, was Muslim (and even respectful to everyone too) - and I respect their religion and hope to learn all I can about it, so that I know what I can and cannot say, so that I do not risk offending them. This is not because of the minority groups that have caused millions of deaths, or destroyed the WTC on my dad's birthday; it is because I value these people as friends and don't want to hurt their feelings or lose their respect by being ignorant. I'd rather be well-informed about a friend's religion - be it from books, internet or their mouth - than be ignorant and hating towards any religion.

Anyway, it is impossible to generalize about one billion people without generalizing about humanity as a whole.

Just saying, ya know?
