I am sure that there are many Muslims who aren't militant and are no threat to anyone in the way that they practice their religion. I have no doubt there are many who practice the religion peacefully and allow their families to live as they wish without harm, but this is not true of all Muslims. And yes there have been quite a few "honor killings" in the United States. I think it is seen as politically incorrect to report much on these.
I do find as I have studied the religion after 9/11 and read much of the Koran for myself, as well as listened to explanations of passages by Muslims, that there are some troubling things about the religion and the way it is often practiced. They have a clear way of dealing with conflicting passages of the Koran. Whatever is said the latest in the Prophet's writings takes precedence. So often we are shown passages to prove they are "x, y or z" and yet that passage is later nullified in their view by the Prophet contradicting or basically nullifying it.
Islam, taken from the Koran, is as much a system for governing and for expanding the region of governing as it is a religion. The Koran is quite militant.
Non-Muslims are not of the same worth to them as Muslims. Muslims who convert to another religion are even worse and often put to death, even currently under the laws in many Muslim countries. Muslims are, for instance, allowed to lie, even expected to lie, to non Muslims in furtherance of their religion. They are even allowed by the Koran to live a lie to avoid suspicion, as did the terrorists of 9/11, to further their religion, to appear to be non threatening.
Non Muslims are counted as "less than" under sharia law, the law of the Koran. To kill a non Muslim is not of the same weight as to kill a Muslim. A non Muslims testimony is of less weight than that of a Muslim, half I think though I don't remember the exact percentage.
I could go on, but I just wanted to say, having put effort into understanding Islam after 9/11, not wanting to pre-judge or misunderstand anyone, what I have found troubles me.
I don't find the Muslims as presented here to be anything I would fear. Probably these people are living life peacefully and don't wish us harm, as I'm sure is true of many Muslims in our country. I know though that what we see and what and how they truly believe MAY be two different things. I also know about political correctness, editing, etc so I take it all with a grain of salt.
