Muslims and non-Muslims who live in nations where Islam is not the law of the land talk a lot about how Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance.

    Well, it seems that you are being soft. Here’s a story of Muslim aggression from a country whereIslam is a tiny minority (Finland):

    In summary: at the funeral of Muslim-turned-Christian, his Muslim family attacked the funeral party at the graveside, ripped the cross off the coffin and proceeded to conduct a Muslim funeral. The Finnish media have been totally silent on this story…
