Think (but perhaps no) Progress: Peter King - Muslim leaders aren't doing enough to combat terrorism - Video
Perhaps the answer is that it is an Islam problem ~ and that the majority of Muslims who were brought to Islam by force ~ are simply stuck with a bad deal ~ and in the wider Islamic world ~ can't leave. So even if they did not like something about Islam they could not leave it. The majority are forced to be Muslim ~ and for those who might disagree, with some of Islam's tenets are forced to defend the indefensibly [or make up a story, in which we as westerners want to believe].
What we are seeing today with the rise in Islamic Jihadism is a phenomena that existed at the beginning of Islam ~ it is how Islam was spread.
Let's hear what Islam's holy books have to say about the Prophet and so about Islam.
Muhammad sent Khalid Ibn al-Walid to the tribe of the children of Haritha and told him: "Call them to accept Islam before you fight with them. If they respond, accept that from them, but if they refuse, fight them." Khalid told them: "Accept Islam and spare your life." They entered Islam by force. He brought them to Muhammad. Muhammad said to them: "Had you not accepted Islam I would have cast your heads under your feet"
The embarrassing thing about the defense of Islam is that much of it is without fact.
