Islam, once a bright spot for culture has been bastardizeed into a dirty, evil religion. In its current form it promotes hatred toward other religions, it puts down women, and allows terrorism.
Here is a case where the culture of the region is so backwards you wonder if they ever will be able to take a spot at the adult table of life.

ABU QASH, West Bank - Rofayda Qaoud - raped by her brothers and impregnated - refused to commit suicide, her mother recalls, even after she bought the unwed teenager a razor with which to slit her wrists. So Amira Abu Hanhan Qaoud says she did what she believes any good Palestinian parent would: restored her family's "honor" through murder.
Armed with a plastic bag, razor and wooden stick, Qaoud entered her sleeping daughter's room last Jan. 27. "Tonight you die, Rofayda," she told the girl, before wrapping the bag tightly around her head. Next, Qaoud sliced Rofayda's wrists, ignoring her muffled pleas of "No, mother, no!" After her daughter went limp, Qaoud struck her in the head with the stick.
Qaoud's confessed crime, for which she must appear before a three-judge panel on Dec. 3, is one repeated almost weekly among Palestinians living in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Israel. Female virtue and virginity define a family's reputation in Arab cultures, so it's women who are punished if that reputation is perceived as sullied.
Look into the face of evil.
After reading this, do you honestly believe that Islam is still a great, loving, happy religion?
Do you really think so? People who right now protest America's involvement in trying to make their lives better are making it harder for these people to get ahead and taken seriously. They are enablers of this sort of evil bastardization of Islam.
Where are they when Sadaam starves orphans to death and cuts out
tongues of people who disagree with him? Where are they when this sort of family "justice" happens?
