Nevertheless though, I do know peacefull Muslims. Maybe they are not "good Muslims" as in fundamentalist Muslims but they are peacefull and Americanized.
Sorry , peacefull = peaceful and for all other spelling errors etc..
As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness.
At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs [Europe, Australia, USA and Japan]. Six percent of US prison inmates are Muslim. Like any other minority, they wont integrate, but work to build their own separate community.
It's how it works! Once they hit the 4% - 5% mark, they begin to push -- hard.
From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.
They will push for the introduction of halaal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves (along with threats for failure to comply).
At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world, but to establish Sharia law over the entire world. When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. (Paris car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats.
After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning (India, Mindanao, Philippines and Israel). At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare [Indonesia].
From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya (infidel tax). (Sudan, Kosovo, Lebanon and Egypt).
After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide [Sudan, Western Papua (New Guinea), Biafra, Turkey and North Nigeria].
100% will usher in the peace of "Dar-es-Salaam" - House of Peace - as in Saudi Arabia, Libya and Yemen.

Humans are humans and people may not be born with full-blown personalities, but they are born with temperaments. Some from birth, are just more easy-going and quiet. And others, scream their way into the world and are still screaming the day they leave it. And Muslims are no different from every other human that walks the earth in this aspect of naturally "peaceful" personalities verses naturally "aggressive" personalities .
However, Islam itself, unlike most other religions, was not founded by a pacifist(passive, easy-going & quiet), it was founded by a warrior (a screamer). Give a person who is by nature "passive, easy-going & quiet" a screamer religion, and he may not go crazy -- he may be "a peaceful Muslim". But give to "a screamer" a screamer religion and you've got a big problem!
