There are court actions and ongoing debates that Muslims should not wear school uniforms and that has been dragged out and Muslim teachers being covered head to toe posing difficulty in teaching methods.
Then the Muslim police woman who would not shake the hand of the policeman who recruited her as a form of offence if she did according to her beliefs.
Then there are the bacon phobic scares and the alcohol cleaning fluids in hospitals that some won't use because of their beliefs regardless of safety of others.
Headstones without crosses, no crosses in hospitals and schools and prayers because it might offend the Muslim and yet people are willing to accept the defeat for minor things.
Churches being turned into Mosques
double standard intolerance on the behalf of the demanders.
you would have found out what Islamic ideology was about through the collective rejection of Democracy anyway.
Iran's democratically elected government of Mosadeq was toppled in a coup carried out by the CIA in 1953, transforming Iran into a US clent under the country's pro-western conservative monarch, Mohammad Raza shah Pahlavi.The United states quickly complemented this development with the conclusion of bilateral and multilateral economic and military pact with Turkey and Pakistan.
Constitutional monarchy can be said to be at least partly embraced in some countries that are generally considered more democratic. Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, and Bahrain are examples of this category.
Lebanon traditionally enjoyed a confessional democratic system. Indeed, Lebanon had prided itself on its democratic environment which sought to maintain a semblance of equity within its diverse population, and claims were made that within the country 'democracy and freedom are indispensable ingredient for a stable political system'. The Lebanese constitution that was written in 1926 was based on the French constitution and it secured equality and freedom among all its citizens. A large number of political parties, with very different ideologies, are active in Lebanon, but most of them form political alliances with other groups of similar interests. Even though certain high profile positions in the government and the seats in the parliament are reserved to specified sects, very strong competition between different party and independent candidates is expected in the elections.
it is not the method of salvation in the Modern world anymore through everyday repeating.

One of the biggest questions is, What percentage of Muslim support terrorism, or sympathize enough with terrorists not to take a stand to try and end terrorist activities.
Those who ignore and aid the crimes of others, when they benefit from those crimes, are equally guilty of committing those crimes.
The actions of the Western nations are consistently exaggerated by those who apologize and thereby support terrorists.
Muslim aggression and imperialism are easy to observe, being that they are carried out on numerous fronts.
There are far too many people claiming that the actions of these murderous terrorists are justified, and not nearly enough speaking out against these unjustified actions.
We need more Muslim moderates speaking out and taking a stand against Muslims extremist.
It is time that those of us who recognize the deteriorating situation start to speak out more and more
to counter the apologists in our midst who seem bent on placing all blame on the western powers in order to refuse to act before things get far worse.
Failure to act now, only means that the situation will worsen, and eventually the response will be far worse than it needs to be.

...and pretty much wherever Islam is "taken seriously:"
"O ye who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who
are near to you, and let them find harshness in you,
and know that Allah is with those who keep their duty"
Qur'an, Sura 9:123
You can trace many if not all the major problems in the Middle East to Western meddling, including radical Islam. Thanks to the West, Wahabism took over Saudi Arabia and all moderate belief systems were forced to take a back seat.
NEW YORK (CNN) -- The founder of an upstate New York TV station aimed at countering Muslim stereotypes has been arrested on suspicion of killing his wife, who was beheaded, authorities said.
Muzzammil Hassan, who founded Bridges TV in November 2004 to counter anti-Islam stereotypes, surrendered to police Thursday. Hassan touted the network as the "first-ever full-time home for American Muslims," according to a press release. "Every day on television we are barraged by stories of a 'Muslim extremist, militant, terrorist, or insurgent,'" Hassan said in the 2004 release. "But the stories that are missing are the countless stories of Muslim tolerance, progress, diversity, service and excellence that Bridges TV hopes to tell."
SOME Muslims are undermining the battle to rid Britain’s hospitals of killer infections by refusing to wash their hands when visiting sick relatives.
Dispensers containing anti-bacterial gel have been placed outside wards at hospitals all over Britain in a bid to get rid of superbugs like MRSA and PVL.
It prevents people bringing in more infections. But some Muslims refuse to use the hand cleansers on religious grounds because they contain alcohol.
MUSLIM supermarket checkout staff who refuse to sell alcohol are being allowed to opt out of handling customers’ bottles and cans of drink.
Islamic workers at Sainsbury’s who object to alcohol on religious grounds are told to raise their hands when encountering any drink at their till so that a colleague can temporarily take their place or scan items for them.
At least 57 other people were wounded in the attack, carried out by a bomber on a motorcycle. Meanwhile, the US military says it is to reduce troop numbers in the country by 12,000 in the next six months. The level of violence in Iraq has declined since 2007, but it remains a feature of daily life for many Iraqis. At least 12 people died two days ago when a car bomb exploded at a cattle market in Babil province. There are still almost daily violent incidents in Baghdad.

These attacks aren't being carried out by U.S. soldiers, they are attacks carried out by the radical elements of Islam, who do not want peace. These attacks serve no purpose but to stir up trouble, prevent peace, prevent the people of Iraq from living decent lives. This clearly shows that these radicals care nothing for peace, or for anyone, including their fellow Muslims. They only care about one thing, pushing their agenda of a world controlled by their fanatic religious beliefs.
2 See how your enemies are astir,
how your foes rear their heads.
3 With cunning they conspire against your people;
they plot against those you cherish.
4 "Come," they say, "let us destroy them as a nation,
that the name of Israel be remembered no more."
5 With one mind they plot together;
they form an alliance against you-
6 the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites,
of Moab and the Hagrites,
7 Gebal, [a] Ammon and Amalek,
Philistia, with the people of Tyre.
8 Even Assyria has joined them
to lend strength to the descendants of Lot.
