1) I agree that there are Muslim groups that have misinterpreted the Qur'anic text. These are called converts. Once it is more fully explained for them, the sleeper cell awakens.
2) I'm an American... I'll have whatever damn opinion I want.
Thanks. This line made my day!

That line of crap about the Koran being misinterpreted is only going to work for so long.
Many of us are learning for ourselves just what those "Satanic verses"-- which aptly applies to the entire work, and not just those to which Salmon Rushdie referred in the book that got a hit put out on him by a "holy" man--actaully do say.
When one sees for themselves that the Koran is an extremely repetitive, rambling work that grows increasingly encouraging of violence and lust as it goes on--(and with even a cursory knowledge gains a greater firsthand knowledge of what the Koran actually says than the vast majority of Muslims in the world---the gig is up for the apologists.
An accurate definition of an "Islamic Scholar" is someone who has dedicated his life to going to whatever lenghts necessary in creating rationalizations and twisted logic to try and make sense of the life of Muhammad and pretend he was a "prophet" of the God of Abraham and the Bible and the Koran is the only accurate revelation from that selfsame God.
Bringing themselves into the spotlight might work for a while with the politically correct who give in to the squeakiest wheel, as the homosexual community has proved over the past decade. But it's going to eventually be their downfall, when enough people take the trouble to look behind the curtain and learn for themselves that the Wizard is just a big WizzHead.
