If you haven't figured it out by now, I am a very devout Muslim. I'm a little unorthodox though, since I've actually studied the Quran unlike most.
Ok, this is CRITICAL to this discussion continuing; if you fail to make this distinction, I will not bother talking to a wall.
The Islam you follow does not demand world domination; Is Islam destined to rule the world? That's what the Islamists believe. I know to you the
idea is anathema, and false, but unfortunately for you, you are only one person, you don't represent the group of people called "Islamists" who
follow the writings of Hassan Al Bannah, and especially Sayed Qutb, and is generally represented by the Muslim Brotherhood.
You speak as if this group doesn't exist, as if we should have nothing to fear about this, although they express their wishes after establishing a
caliphate, to expand the caliphate; whether this is done through expansionist wars, or proselytization is hard to say; but one would be compelled,
given the aberrant phenomena of Islamic suicide bombings, that a Caliphate would extremely belligerent to non-Muslim states.
