    I've been thinking about this lately...a few years ago I would be very protective of muslims,but right now I think they are people who keep demanding and demanding while always complaining that they are the targets of the west and the poor innocent victims.

    Sure there are millions of muslims in western countries around the world and many of them can coexist peacefully with people of other religions and cultures...but I'm starting to think that this part of islam is tiny.

    Let's take a moment and think...more than half the conflicts in the world today involve muslims.Let's see in which parts of the world:

    Bosnia,we had the civil war between Bosnian Muslims,Croats and Bosnian Serbs.

    Cyprus,Greek Orthodox Christians and Turkish Muslims

    Kosovo,Kosovar Albanians vs Serbs

    Lebanon,the big civil war and various battles between muslims and others since at least the 70s

    Palestine-Israel,

    Chechnya and Dagestan...muslim terrorism and guerrila war

    Iraq,sectarian war

    Egypt,Muslims vs Copts

    Sudan,Muslims vs Christians

    Nagorno-Karabakh,Armenians vs Azerbaijanis

    Afghanistan,

    Pakistan,

    India,

    Kashmir,

    Indonesia,

    Turkey.

    And lots of tension in countries with muslim populations like France,Germany,Great Britain,Greece,Serbia(Sandzak and Kosovo region),USA,Spain,Italy...


    So what's your opinion?
