Well, Shakey, I know plenty of Muslims who are totally opposed to the fanatical Musilim extremism and violence you are drawing attention to, and they say so. Every Muslim I know is opposed to it. But who do the news media pay attention to? Fifty thousand reasonable people who don't want ot hurt anyone...or one fanatic who does?
If you examine my posts you'll see that I support the average muslim it's the lunatics I despise.
But, yes there's always a but, Islam itself is not above critiscm, nothing is, and the fact that I object to parts of it does not make me an islamophobe, see
this and tell me I'm wrong.
And yep Joan's all right
