Sorry but it's the truth. Why does everyone jump to defend such an obviously violent religion?

If it's the truth why don't you answer the question I posed to you earlier? Why did you ignore my post? The only thing that is obvious is that you know little of history.
If Islam is so violent and bent on destruction of all non-Muslims, why did they tolerate living side by side with Jews and Christians for centuries?
Why, when Islam captured Jerusalem in 637, did the Muslims not massacre every single inhabitant, like the Crusaders did 360 years later? Why did they spare Jewish and Christian holy places?
I think you know the answer but then if you say it you will have to acknowledge that your quotes are taken out of context.

This has to be the most ignorant thread of the year sadly what scares me even more is people actually think way. Secondly ATS lets this thread side in the main sections, for real if this thread was titled "Are all Jewish people tight with there money, or just some ?" how long till the thread was moved to BTS or a low traffic section ?.
Shame on you ATS

The clanism of specific population groups isn't actually "muslims" over here, your simply guilty of another generalization, the plague of western thinking.
Turks and Moroccans do NOT get along, both are Muslim and only when there is a controversy related to Islam, you'll see both groups protesting , but don't mistake, they don't protest together.
Same goes for forming regional density's. In Belgium, we have cities where there's a lot of Turks and cities where there's a lot of Moroccans, but rarely both. And when there are both, like in Brussels, the area's with the 2 don't mix and are often at opposite sides of town.
Brussels also has the notorious "Matumbo" area, which is specifically Congolese, you won't find any other African nationalities in that specific area, because they simply don't get along. Neither will you easily find Hutu and Tutsi Congolese mixed in the same street, they've been in tribal wars in Congo for ages and the fear they have for each other still runs very deep.
Here's something a Hutu friend of mine told me once:
Only for to the White man is black black.
Just like most whites call all squint eyed yellow looking people Chinese and all black people African and all sand brown people Arabs or muslims.
And the weird part about this is that, people blame the media entirely for this, while, if you just look at the information and reporting on Iraq, you'll see its filled with information about the different factions at play there.
People bitch about the education system, media, government, ... being to blame and manipulating us.
Well, don't point fingers before looking at yourself deep and hard first.
Only when you allow them to manipulate you, they can do so.
And why shouldn't they? We make it so easy for them by having more interest in how messed up Britney Spears is at the very moment or how many times Paris Hilton has shown skin today, then to pay some attention to what the frick is going on in the world.
CHANGE STARTS WITH US
I agree with a lot of what you said. There is a lot of fighting among different muslim sects, has been so for many centuries. That is why Saddam was a good ruler for Iraq; he kept a semblance of peace in the land. It required one-mean-sumbitch to keep those people civil.

I have always overall liked middle easterners. Most muslims (from the middle east) have decent moral values and if they have immigrated to the u.s. they are educated, well mannered people. They instill values in their children, they don't live off of welfare, they do not raise their children to be thugs. They are good people.
(Note once again I am specifically referring to Muslims from the Middle East here).
