Islam; the truth is inescapable

Recently ISIS released a video, which contained the quote,  "Every Muslim who is well aware of the history of Islam, knows that the holy war against infidels is an integral part of Islam, and those who read history would know." Regardless of the source, this truth is still inescapable.

Islam is a very compartmentalized religion. The vast majority of Muslims, like most people in the world simply want to live a peaceful life and raise a family; this being accomplished through the five Pillars of Islam. Another part is Islam comes with it's own criminal justice system that is pretty much inconsistent with any sovereign country not ruled by Sharia law (the vast majority of Muslims support Sharia law over other criminal justice systems regardless of the country where they live). Then there is the jihadist; the holy warriors that police the world for those that defame the Prophet Mohamed and/or Allah and promote the forced spread of radical Islam. "If the person who defames him (the Prophet Mohamed) is a non-Muslim living under a treaty with the Muslim state, then this is a violation of the treaty and he must be executed." While the peaceful Muslim does not necessarily condone the jihadist (some 25% when polled actually do) most are of the belief, that while they disagree with the violence of radical jihadists, one should not criticize their religion in front of unbelievers (and make no mistake, radical jihadism has always been a recognized part of Islam). I also find it remarkable if not naive when the left asked what the West has done/ is doing to anger, when the answer is the very existence of the West and it's promotion Democracy, individual rights, liberty and a liberal education; all of which are viewed as a direct assault against Islam.
