    Thats why, Islam needs a reformation and extremist interpretations of ancient holy writ need to be marginalized to the fringes as they are in most other societies. That would be a big step forward without requiring the slaughter of 1.2/1.7 billion people.

    You could try to wipe us out. But I already know you'll fail.

    Don't tell me what Islam needs, you aren't a Muslim. As far as I'm concerned you have no say in whatever future Islam has. It will be decided by Muslims alone.

    If the Muslim faith is capable of a reformation it must come from inside the faith, see *Martin Luther*... anything from outside, would be seen as interference, and basically worthless. So based upon the probability.....I don't see them (you guys) doing it.

    You need to do it, now!

    Just remember...Islam is "the problem" - they made it so. They are the ones claiming to act in its name.

    You are not part of Islam therefore have no say as to what is necessary to my religion.

    You do realize that at some point the rest of the world will lose patients with Islam as it is today?... and yes, it is possible to kill 1.7 billion people with the weapons available today...... look at what Stalin accomplished with just bullets on his own people.

    How long would a person put up with their neighbor shooting up the neighborhood every time he gets mad or feels slighted?

    How long do you expect the rest of the world to put up with the temper tantrums we see every week?

    What happens if one of the crazies detonates a nuke on US soil? Do you think we would just shine it on, or would we end the threat forever?

    These are the serious questions the moderate Muslims had better be asking themselves before something happens to make the question moot, and they damned well better do something to reign in the extremists…. Soon.

    And yes.... there is room for all religions on this planet, as long as they don't try to exterminate the rest of us.

    Your correct and I won't. What I will say is respect and tolerance is a two way street. There has been cases of Bible burning in Pakistan in 2008 (if memory serves me correcty). You show respect for my beliefs I will do the same for yours.

    As long as Muslims kill muslims I guess you are right. When they go outside of that and kill others, that seems to change things.

    But as you suggest, I do not see Islam trying to reign in the fringe groups. Perhaps it is because as Tony Blair says they are more prevelant than many want to believe.
