Part of the misconception of us here in the West is that the "religion" of Islam is MORE to them than just a religion.
They don't just talk about it with friends around the water cooler, go to church on the weekend and participate in bake sales, community outreach programs and try to help other people.
Their whole social structure is based around it. From their politics to their day to day interaction with other people to how they will overlook traditional family bonds and trends in the name "of".
The more I learn of Islam itself, the more scared I am of the fact that here in the US, the Right of Free Assembly and the Right to Religious Freedom is an open door to these people.
Islam sees the world in two colors - those who are THEIR BRAND Islamic, and everyone else who must be wiped out.
Put 1 Shi'ite, 1 Sunni and 1 Kurd in a room together, all of which follow "Islam". I guarantee one of them will be dead in the first day, just based on the difference they have with their own versions of the same religion.
It's very scary stuff - and not from a tin foil hat, out to get little old me, kind of way. They have been killing each other for THOUSANDS of years over there for the same exact reasons.
