it's not islam that is scary , it is what comes with the religion. no country has escaped their wrath. if you disagree with them, do something as simple as print a cartoon, arrest one of their leaders etc., extreme violence will follow. i don't hate someone for their religious beliefs but i do hate what islam does to every country that the religion grows in. it is how some of the believers interpret the teachings that make islam a frightening thing. show me a country where islam has grown and i will show you some kind of terrorist attack. followers claim it's the perfect religion but if that's so , how can the koran be interpreted in so many drastically different ways?
