      intolerance in what aspects? if their god is the ultimate creator who own
      all things, why should they be tolerant to mere creatures who dare to
      disrespect their creator? (of course, almost anything short of proclaiming
      islam can be construed as disrespectful).

      This is worthy of reply but I am short time for it now. Suffice it to say
      that there are some true statments here and some mischaracterizations. Islam
      was born in conflict and was spread in its heyday but conquest which was
      held
      to be divinely ordained. That is very much at the core of the religion.
      Islam
      is intolerant in the way most western montheistic religions are exclusivist
      and intolerant, however Islam when it was ascendant in the middle ages was
      more tolerant than Christianity though it is a good deal less tolerant than
      Christianity now. Judaism in its formative years was extremely intolerant
      though after 2000 years of exile they have learned the value of tolerance.
      More as I get the time. -- SWM
