there is nothing that should be a higher priority in dealing with.
Until muslims can rein in their black sheep, no muslims should be allowed entrance to any civilized nation, especially nations with international airports.

The Middle Eastern religious fanatics are very dangerous.
We can arrest them or kill them, but we'll never convert them.
It is not so much the 'Radical Islam" that is the problem but the stupidity and arrogance of its low-level spiritual leaders. Add this onto a very odd way of "being polite" and other social mechanisms and you get a culture that is ripe for fundamentalist fanatics with bombs sewn into their Qu'rans.
Here in the Arab world people are taught to be blindly religious and to never openly criticize or question anyone of their faith or someone in charge. This makes many of the Clerics and Imams virtual kings of all they can speak to.
This allows for some of the worst things imaginable to happen.
Anywhere else common sense and courtesy would win out over these religious leaders amazingly arrogant demands. Here in the Arab world however they enjoy a relative immunity from both justice as well as common sense.Source(s): Muslims are not allowed to have pictures of the Prophet Mohammad so instead they have pictures of these spiritual leaders.... which in anyone else's eyes are Religious 'ICONS '. In many ways, the religious culture here is stifling and backwards and exploits the common person on the street so the barely educated cleric can live very high on the hog. Some of us believe that these religious leaders chose the path not for religious reasons but for economical ones. Than again, Billy Graham was no better I guess. America was plagued by the same type of Tele-Evangelist out to get another cadillac at the expense of his TV audience.....

Just as dangerous as radical Christianity. The Koran and the Bible are actually very similar.
The God of the Bible repeatedly commands his followers to kidnap, enslave, torture, rape, abort, and kill people. Most Christians don't know that because they haven't READ the ENTIRE Bible themselves. See Ezekiel 9:6, Isaiah 13:16, Deuteronomy 13:15, Leviticus 20:9, Exodus 32:27, Deuteronomy 21:10-12, Joshua 7:15, and Hosea 13:16 for a few of hundreds of examples of God-approved atrocities.
It may be that Muslims obey Allah's written commands more often than Christians obey God's, but ask yourself this - WHO is more dangerous: a person who follows a holy text exactly as it is written, or a person who acts on his own whims, and claims that his god is leading him?

As dangerous as any other fanatic group that is willing to kill those different from themselves. P.S. I happen to think your hair is cool!
