Phoenix, I would like to go on record here and state emphatically that extreme Islam is not a problem in Morocco. Morocco is a great nation, with
friendly, pious people.
When I speak of militant Islam, we've all seen exactly where these guys originate, where they exist, and what they teach.
So Phoenix, when I speak of Islam, I speak of the threat of militant Islam, that is far more reaching that the more civilized people of Morocco.
My personal apologies to you if you took offense to my generalizations.
No offence taken!
Your right extremist militant islam is a threat to the entire world including muslims. How much of a threat is up to debate.
Some people seem to forget about the civilized muslims, and I think that's a shame. These extremists make life harder for all of us.
Thanks for your post, I respect your views, some I disagree with, but thanks for this post!

By the way if anyone tries using a satellite to recieve arabic channels, it can be pretty cool to see the other side to arab etc countries. Watch
arabic drama, music, comedies, quiz shows etc. It really helps show another side to reality, which is healthy.
Also there are some Islam channels you can find. For example Islam channel is pretty cool. Lot's of talk shows and muslims phoning in talking about
their opinions on subjects etc. It's really helps to hear about real muslims views etc.
For example couple of days ago I was watching a show with muslims phoning in about their opinion on nationalism. A few mentioned how they think
nationalism can be wrong if they get too serious, and it's not good to seperate yourself from others for example, not good to be too proud and
arrogant etc. It's pretty nice to hear peoples opinions. Some of course I don't agree with, because everyone has individual opinions. That's why
they debate on the show.
Here's a sample of the channel.
Outlandish(music group) is on the show for charity for kids around the world. You can see an example of nice muslims here haha(they do exist )
talking about how nice it is to live in a good country and how unlucky some people are, that's what the charity is about.
