    MG, That is certainly a twisted description of Islam. Not very close to this reality. Perhaps you have studied alternate realities. In fact, the Muslims in Iberia lived very peaceably with the native Spaniard for more than a hundred years. They brought a golden age of learning and art to Iberia. It was only when Ferdinand became a "Christian Jihadist" very similar to your description of the Muslims that the Iberian Muslims were slaughtered and ejected from the peninsula. Incidently, Ferdinand did the same thing to the Jews and any Christians that disagreed with his view of Christianity. The primary tenet of his Christianity was that he was the POPE and his power was absolute. Any disagreement with that was heresy. There are some (not many) sick Jihadists in the same ideological school as Ferdinand but I don't believe that it is unique to a particular faith. Most people that believe that have some bigotry issues to work out. You might take a little time for introspection.
