    The presenter posed the question, if the suicide bomber in Sweden succeeded only in blowing himself up, will he still get the 72 virgins in Heaven. The replies were alarming with one aggrieved woman demanding to know why he mentioned Islam. Apparently the bomber was not a real Muslim. Ahh good, you might think but when pressed she said a real Muslim male would go to Afghanistan and fight shoulder to shoulder with his brothers in Afghanistan. What does does this tell you about confusion/Koran and Radical Islam? Another man said it was all a matter of, "Intent" but couldn't explain further. There was a general feeling that the presenter was having a laugh at Islam's expense. Not to make light of the fact that America and the UK in particular have killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqi Civilians based on a lie, why aren't Muslims enraged at the Millions who have been murdered in countries such as Sri lanka, Somalia, Sudan, Algeria, Pakistan, Iraq, Iran, East Timor, Indonesia, Yemen , Burma etc...but will demand death for anyone printing a Cartoon of the Prophet Mohamed. Something fundamental is wrong because the argument that it's all the West's fault does little to answer the question, Why are Muslims killing themselves and as many innocent Women and Children as they can? And then they go to Heaven?
