Islam is a VERY backward religion, that MUST keep it's masses not only
in subjugation, but ignorant and maintain a feudal state that is always
at war, looking to take over the spoils of all other societies. It is by
nature destructive and not constructive. The Q'oran is based on distortions
of the Bible, lies, paganism, racism, hate, contradictions, and ignorance,
with a good dose of stupidity thrown in for good measure. -Fred A. Miller
