For those defenders of extreme Islam ask yourself this: Why are Muslims killing so many Muslims? Irag, brother against brother. Afghanistan Muslim against Muslim, the Sudan Muslim killing Muslims and christians when they take a break from killing fellow Muslims. Give me ONE example of Christians killing Muslims on mass, you can't because it isn't happening. Nice try trying to deflect this issue as being a Christian versus Islam issue but the fact is world wide Extreme Islam is raging a holy war against it's own followers. It is the Christians that go into these backward countries and provide food, medicine, aide, doctors, while Muslims kill Muslims in the name of Allah Christians clean up the blood that drips off their unholy vile hands.
Today we are a civilized society? Really?
Just look at all the anti-Muslim BS posted on this website. Religious intolerance is hardly civilized.
Look at the war crimes our leaders have committed in Iraq. The west's war crimes in the middle east far exceed the crimes committed on 9/11, in terms of loss of life and damage to infrastructure.
Iraq is a far more dangerous place than it was before it was "liberated".
Recently Lancet released a second survey to determine how much deadlier Iraq has become.

Using fear and misinformation to manipulate the general population into supporting an unprovoked war which has resulted in an estimated 655,000 deaths (2.5% of the population) is hardly civilized.
Also, the death and destruction in Iraq has been increasing steadily ever since the invasion.
So don't preach that we are superior in some way, because we aren't.
