Using the KKK's intolerance toward anyone except Christian whites as an example of a westerners perspective of Islam is unfair and insulting. I don't care how anyone chooses to worship, or who. In this country they have a right to worship as they please. But they don't have the right to change our constitution or system of justice to conform to their foreign religion. This country was founded by Christians and Jews in order to provide freedom for all to practice the religion of their choice but NOT TO CHANGE THE SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT THAT GUARANTEES THAT FREEDOM.
Like i have said Before, Modern Christians and Jews Deviated from there origins. They have accepted modern laws and civilization. The Islamic world for the most part have not Turkey is heading down a modernist road so far. This does not mean that many Muslims in this country have not modernized i know many Muslims that do not accept Shariah and do not use violent passages to justify murder in the quran. Just how you do not see a Jew killing someone for working on the sabbath. Many Muslim youth in this country are modernizing.
