 Why People Accept Islam
As a result, every decade or two, a new wave of Westerners convert and during the same period, most of their children leave Islam.
Many who accept Islam in the prisons end up in their destructive life-styles and back in prison like their non-Muslim counterparts.
The other major problem facing convert Muslims, especially in the West, is that without a Muslim community to support their families, their children often leave Islam by the time they graduate from high school.

How the radicals who control Islam are teaching their children to kill my children.
Recently, moreover, the more relevant threats to Jews have come not from the medieval Christianity Gibson seems to favor, but from Nazism, communism, and radical Islam, against which believing Christians are staunch Jewish allies.
These days when I look at my kids sleeping in their beds, looking so innocent, I worry that across the world innocent Jewish children are being de-humanized.

 Marriage
Marriage is forbidden (haram) to a man, according to the Hanafi school, if he does not possess the means to maintain his wife and children or if he suffers from an illness, serious enough to affect his wife and progeny.
Marriage in Islam has aspects of both 'ibadah (worship) of Allah and mu'amalah (transactions between human beings).
These verses of the Noble Qur'an clearly show that in contrast to other religions like Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism etc. which consider celibacy or monasticism as a great virtue and a means of salvation, Islam considers marriage as one of the most virtuous and approved institutions.

 Women in Islam
Man in Islam is fully responsible for the maintenance of his wife, his children, and in some cases of his needy relatives, especially the females.
In the case of Islam such compassionate and dignified status was decreed, not because it reflects the environment of the seventh century, nor under the threat or pressure of women and their organizations, but rather because of its intrinsic truthfulness.
In Islam there is absolutely no difference between men and women as far as their relationship to God is concerned, as both are promised the same reward for good conduct and the same punishment for evil conduct.

 Groupe de Recherche sur l'Islam en Suisse (GRIS)
An element that is important and interesting to note is that of the 310,807 Muslims in Switzerland, only 36,481 have Swiss nationality, having been born Swiss nationals and/or converting to Islam (approximately one-half of the 36,481) or having gone through the process of naturalization to become Swiss citizens.
These parents were concerned that Islam teachings were contrary to the religious education that they wanted to provide to their children.
This decision had direct implications: from this point on, Islam was no longer only a masculine ephemeral social fact in Switzerland, but had become a reality with the presence of families.

 Beslan, Russia & Islam
While the world pretends that Islam is a non-violent religion, modern and ancient history begs to differ, screaming: “It's the religion, stupid!” The macabre act of Islamic terror in Russia is both immoral and illegal.
What could collectively be described as Russia’s Sept 11th occurred late Aug, 2004, when homicide bombers brought down two commercial airliners, then a suicide bombing targeting commuters in Moscow, followed a few days later by a bloody hostage incident at a school killing hundreds of women and children.
Its not about intolerant and undemocratic Russians trying to prevent Chechens from practicing religion or be free, …but it is about intolerant and undemocratic Chechens trying to eliminate all religions but Islam, to conquer and govern the land and enslave infidels.
