-Bing/Google search “civil wars in the world” and determine where they are being fought; then research each civil war and determine who is fighting in them. The results are startling: 90% of them involve one combatant-religion -- Islam. Muslims extremists fight in civil wars against Hindus, Sikhs, Jews, Shamans, Copts, Buddhists, Zoroastrians, Christiana, animists and Confucians and all other non-Muslim entities. They fight in China, Russia, Bosnia, Cyprus, Macedonia, Israel, Pakistan, India, Indonesia-Ambon & Halmarhera, Côte d'Ivoire, Kashmir, Algeria, Mauritania, Morocco, Tunisia, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kosovo, Bosnia, Kurdistan, Kirghizia, Nigeria, Philippines, Somalia, Turkey, Chechnya, Sudan, Yemen, Thailand, Uganda, Azerbaijan, Mali, Chad, Libya, Bangladesh and East Timor.

When I went to school, Islam was "the faith or the sword" and "death to the infidels."

Which is the question to which you want an answer? I will address the first one: The internet isn't about Islam. The internet is a way for people who live on this planet to communicate with each other. So it's not a tool for OR against. Why do some people (you, in this case) seem to think everything is directed to be all about their particular beliefs or disbeliefs? And before you start saying I'm 'abusing' you verbally. Most of us (me, in this case) couldn't care less about the Islam religion, one way or another. I don' t feel prejudiced. I've lived abroad and had Islamic friends--and they are fine. I've had all kinds of friends and they're all fine. Some people are good, some bad. No big deal. But, in my opinion, to think the internet exists for Islam is arrogant on your part.

When you see how the UN protects the inhumane practices of Muslim nations, you start to see how little they actually care about women. They are a sham.

I might point out that in the late 1400s, most of Europe was in the dark ages, while Spain flourished because of the Muslims.
Then Ferdinand & Isabella kicked them and the Jews out (murdered the ones that didn't leave or convert) and Spain proceeded on its slow decline to irrelevance.
Be thankful that you've been born to prosperity instead of spending your energy trashing the less fortunate!
Thank capitalism, because it certainly isn't because of religion.
