    I am very curious to know what your definition of "evil" is. It may well be that "Islamic law is not a great evil..." as you state; however, there is very great evil perpetrated daily in it's name by some very, very evil people. That is, unless you consider murdering Muslims, as well as others, in variety of creative, albeit inefficient, ways to be righteous and in accordance with Islamic law. I would look for "Islamiphobia" to continue to increase with each senseless bombing, mortar or rocket attack, beheading and shooting committed in the name of Allah. In almost every corner of the planet some shamefully violent and repugnant act is committed routinely in the name of one form of Islam or another. There can be no lasting "peace" anywhere that the Islamic world meets the non-Islamic world. The values, traditions and the culture of the two worlds are just too very different to make accommodations for the other. (I know that I have a real hard time with concept of "laying down and dying" just because some bunch of idiotic Koran-thumping zealots don't think I have the right to share the planet with them.)
