I have some muslim friends. I have to say that the general consensus on this thread is one I share. Most muslims are generally very kind people who aren't that much different than myself or others.....we just worship in a different way. Unfortunately, I feel that the good people who happen to be muslims suffer greatly from the bad PR that the islamic Jihad movement create by their deplorable actions.
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
I have many Muslim friends and I also worked for two years with a team of three, me, a devout Christian, and a devout Muslim. We had some fun conversations and got along great during work and socially outside of work.

But I concern myself with the politics.
Personally I know almost noone who is a raving lunatic.
Almost everyone I know is polite and concerning, irrespective of faith.
Yet, in general, I know many people with personal agendas that are against mine.
No it doesn't.The general consensus drafts law.
I know quite a few Muslims. Nothing wrong with them.

Anytime I meet someone who is from an Arabic land my 1st impression, sadly enough is: what if he/she's a radical? Always followed quickly by: what if he/she came here to flee the radicalism in Arabic lands?
What would you do if you were born in a backward 8th century hell like that and actually knew enough to recognize it for what it is; considering that all the while there was a land of inherent rights, individual liberty, religious freedom and private property rights on the other side of the planet that would welcome you in?
