There are plenty of very civilized Islamic people. The problem of fanaticism is more linked to the Arabic culture, the "honor" killings, female genital mutilation, and obsession with offending Mohamed (i.e. symbolic of offending the tribal patriarch...) is part of thier cultural heritage. I don't think it's racist to say that this culture has some ugly features. But they have some nice features too, like the well known Arabic hospitality, and of course the food is good, and more healthy than European diet. Anyway, Jewish culture is not perfect either, although more "civilized" due to our 2000 year contact with Western world.
