    Muslim mentality is barbaric and archaic, no place on this planet for this mentality.

    There is a fundamentalist, extreme and militant contingency for all expressions of monotheism... Judaism.... Christianity... Muslim.... The idea of a supreme single omni-being (omnipotent, omni-loving, omniscient, omni-present, etc.) fuels this since it pits one absolute ideology against another, conflicting truth claims of one monotheism/god against another, etc. But Muslim monotheism does seem to be the most militant and violent in the modern era.... One must not forget about the violence of the Crusades in medieval times when Christians inflicted great violence upon the Muslims, literally cutting off and counting the noses of the number of Muslims killed.... Or, in turn before, the great violence perpetrated by the Jews against Christians.... All of these at one time or another thought they were doing their god (shaped in the image of their understanding) a great service by inflicting evil upon others different than themselves....
