yeah, yeah... I could spend this entire thread discounting what you say, but then, that would go way off topic. Suffice it to say, you are wrong
Now about the original topic:
As the countries that harbour extremists become more developed and in control, this extremist version of Islam will undoubtedly become eradicated.
However, it is unlikely that Islam will ever become an "invisible" religion (ie. nothing but a Quran in the back pocket and some weird jewellery
around the neck). You will always see some women in hijabs, men with large beards, public congregations of prayer every friday, the yearly pilgrimage
to Makkah, etc (Of course, this is all assuming that nothing gets changed in the religion anytime soon).
The reason for this is, that unlike (what I know of) Christianity, Islam is very big on the unity of the muslims, and muslims as an entire population
as well as muslims as individual persons.
