I spent some time in a mosque listening and learning just out of curiosity when I was younger. What was disturbing was their explanation of how Islam spread throughout the world.
I see that you speak of the muslims in Iraq fighting. Well lets look at this example. Did you know that there have been cases where American and British troops have disguised themselves as muslims and then open fire on other muslims? this was even on the BBC website, If I had the link I would of posted it....
