Just a thought without being too apologetic about it: Over 1/3 of all the Muslims in the world (about 635,000,000) live in Indonesia, Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh. If Islam is such a terrible religion, as it’s all-too-commonly percieved to be today, then how come these countries aren’t hotbeds of seething Islamic violence like Afghanistan, etc.?
Could it be that all these Muslims are quite rich and organized, and they assign various terrorist roles to certain members, then ship them off to Afghanistan and Iran, etc.? Of course, how terrible for those left behind in Indonesia and such, because they’re consigned to a life of peace and normality which goes against their religion…but this is the fate they have to suffer.
Or could it be that the problem isn’t the religion itself, but the radical idiots and the goverments in certain countries? Just a thought. (Source: Islam by Country in Wikipedia)
