Your post shows a complete and dangerous lack of comprehension. Islam is a religion, not a terrorist group. The media classifies Muslims as "terrorists," "highjackers" and "kidnappers." So why would anyone even look at Islam? Why are so many priests and preachers going to Islam?
David Karesh was a Christian, shall we ban all Christian momentous?
When you compare all of Islam to these terrorists, you essentially say every Sunday clothed bible reading Christian is a Branch Dividian fundamentalist. The linking of such actions to Islam or the Qur’an is incorrect. Rather, such inhumane actions clearly contradict the teachings of Islam - just as the bombing at Oklahoma City by Timothy McVeigh and the killings that occurred at Abraham Mosque, Hebron - Philistine by Dr. Baruch Goldstein clearly contradict the teachings of Christianity and Judaism, respectively.
It is unreasonable to think that so many American converted to Islam without careful consideration and deep contemplation. before concluding that Islam is true. These Americans came from different classes, races and walks of life. They include scientists, professors, philosophers, journalists, doctors, nurses, teachers, artists, lawmakers, chefs, laborers, and every other sort of person imaginable.
I don't quite understand how you, Sasa14, found out that ss659 shows a complete and dangerous lack of comprehension, but can tell for sure that YOU missed a place to discuss religious and terrorist subjects. As far as I know, this is a Database Forum so, please, spread your ideas somewhere else. I'm sure Google will find political/religious forums somewhere on the net for you.
Let there be no misunderstanding of my intentions. I know Islam is not accepted to many westerns but also we have to understand that Islam becomes the fastest-growing religion in America and in the world? Although religion is no longer dominates everyday life in Western society.

Sorry for wasting your time, I hope this will be my last comment on this issue.
What is all this ? According to my knowledge this is a Database Forum , not a place to emote religious feelings. U should stop and remove such posts from the Forum. People come here for the knowledge of Oracle , not to know things which divide people.
There should be a mechanism in place so that people like sasa14 are banned from this forum.
PS : 95 % of terrorists in world are muslims .
( Kashmir , Afghanistan, Iraq , Sudan, Iran , WTC Attacks , Osama , Javed Omar - the list will never end)
While I am interested about the political and religious points brought out by this discussion, please do not start Flame wars on this forum. Except for the occational spamer, this has been a great forum for oracle info. Would everyone agree to disagree and take the flames elsewhere. I have never added anyone to my ignore list on this forum and I would really not like to start.
Thanks for listening.
