For you it's a widespread practice, isn't it? On that basis, one could conclude the biggest danger to atheist is other atheist, considering that's how Madelyn Murray O'Hare died.

Just think of the opportunity to show Islam as it was during a journey to Mecca. Talk about the man who didn't like the way his food tasted and began to beat his wife. As you passed through one town you stopped in at the local Mosque to hear a lesson about how the Zionist were murderers and how all infidels were monkeys and apes, a real soul stirring experience. Passing through another village you saw women beaten in the street by the glorified forces of Islam under Taliban. At the edge of the village you sat down to view a soccer game but then realized they were kicking a head around the field from someone who had been kidnapped and beheaded for the glory of Islam. Leaving that area and coming closer to Mecca, you hoped you'd see better of Islam and you heard the sounds of a wedding, so you turned aside to go up the hill where the sounds were and there in a platia an open area, you saw men, some even in their 30's, taking part in a mass wedding. You were filled with pride at this joyous occasion till you realized the brides were very short and on inquiry learned all of the were under age 13, some as young as age 9. Finally, being fully disgusted as you'd traveled the trail of Islam you decide instead to go to Egypt, supposedly more cosmopolitan and free. There you visit a Coptic Christian area, only to see weeping and learn that the community was mourning the killing of some citizens by Islamic citizens. You ask about the police and discover there is little they will do about it, mostly sweep it under the rug. Realizing Islam's true nature you decide to leave it's area and that means the quickest route is to flee into Africa, but only to discover caravans of slaves being brought north in the Sudan, and to see paganist and Christians mutilated by the Islamic slavers. Finally, unable to deny yourself any longer, you declare yourself free of Islam, you reject it's Prophet, and you determine if you ever take a Hajj, it will only be to destroy such a system of oppression and hate.
a problem with your thinking?
By all Muslims OR Extremist Muslims?
And others are/were to be killed by
all Whites OR White Aryan Race?
Every group has it's nutbars.
If I painted everyone with the same brush I'd be arguing/debating with my brother-in-law......He's an American but I have no reason to argue/debate with him.
Let the little Muslim kids here learn that their faith does not expect them to grow up and kill people that don't believe as they do. In those countries you speak of there are parents that dress their kids up in little suicide outfits. This is a hatred passed down from parent to child, not one written anywhere in the Quran...that I know of. I have tried to find references in the Quran where these acts are called for but I haven't had any luck.
Some parents are no more qualified to teach their children religion than they are math or science. Some of them don't know any better either, they are just telling their children what their own parents told them.
Those girls should learn of the twisted interpretation some parents have of the Muslim faith.
Given 2 alternatives which do you choose?
1. Do nothing and let hand-me-down hatred persist in the Muslim community in perpetuity.
2. Do something and make and effort to educate the young so that someday the tide of hatred may diminish.
I think it's pretty much guaranteed that doing nothing will not gain any ground at all. While there are no guarantees that doing something will or will not make a difference it still seems the better option to me.
