There's a lot of bullshit going around about Islam and muslims. Let's clear it up a little.
1. Burka/ Violence towards women
Wearing the burka is only mandatoey in Iran and Saudi Arabia, 5% of all muslims.
In fact there are more islamic countries that have banned the burka.
The burka is not ment to be mandatory by the Koran, it's merely a commodity.
Four of the five most populated muslim countries have female heads of state(Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Turkey).
2. Islam ≠ Arabia
Only 20% of the muslim population lives in the middle east/north africa; the largest part is located in middle-/east asia.
3. Islam and the willingness to violence
Here's a code Muhammad himself established for his warriors:
- No women, no children, no innocent (priests, etc.)
- no wilful murder of animals
- no wilful burning of trees, forests or fruit trees
- no destroying of water wells
Muslim conquests displayed a tolerance of religions that one failed to find in christian conquests. (see: Moors in spain - the crusades)
4. Muslims are backwards/defy technology
Technologies and great achievements from muslim countries: algebra, philosophy, architecture, medicine, art.
Western countries that were conquered by muslim forces were endowed with schools and libraries.
That's about all I can tell you. I'm not a muslim, for the record.

Some more advice!
1. Don't mix alcohol and cannabis, or, at least, smoke first an drink later.
2. Use birchbark to make fire. It burns even when it's wet.
3. If you're at a private bank, change your bank account to a more environment friendly bank. Have a look for alternatives.
