Smaluemelmisy : For the same reasons we don't Pray to Zeus or Jupiter or Odin.... It is the 21st century. Myths are for weak minds that can't grasp Scientific Fact and trying to Control or Govern uneducated people through fear in the name of some Imaginary Omnipotent Being is just plain wrong.

cvdfmehk : I am Colombian and I will tell you why:

1. Europeans are very nationalistic and they like to conserve their cultures and their traditions. Most do not like it when foreigners go over there to impose their way of life and mostly if it is a religious one. Europe is secular and religion is always a controversial point over ther.

2. Islam has proven to the rest of the world that it is uncompatible to Western values, like democracy, human rights and secularism.

3. There is no Muslim country to can call: a free peaceful country. Even Turkey is not to be called free or peaceful.
