The Independent Florida Alligator: News - Demonstrators gather to protest Islam on Sept. 11

A news piece I found while browsing. I have been thinking about the war of ideas between Islam & the West for sometime and wonder if developments such as these are helpful in any way.

With the wide reach of media nowadays (I am sitting in India - a country with the second largest Muslim population in the world - reading about some small towners in Florida protesting against the religion of Islam - 'Islam is of the Devil' - they are saying) I wonder how Muslims in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and American allies Saudi Arabia will react to this, considering the fact that the US government is on a mission to 'woo' Islamic nations and prove that it is not at war with Islam.

The bigger question is how will American Muslims react to this? The number of American Muslims is significant - estimated to be 7 million (President Obama's Cairo speech) (The Pew Research Centre however in a 2007 survey estimated it to be 2.7 million instead)

Also, is America a secular democracy or a Christian nation?

Or how about how the Christians in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and other Islamic nations feel about it who are being persecuted and killed for not being Muslim?

hey this is raheel and i would like to tell you something, the thing is non muslim state are not willing to give the right of the muslims and they know very well that if they come from their own problems then there is no place for us. so that is why they create the propaganda to degrade the pakistan and the muslims too.
