Islam is is inherently a religion of violence. The Qur'an tells Muslims to kill and go to war to fight for Islam: Surah 2:191; 2:193; 3:118; 4:75-76; 5:33; 8:12; 8:65; 8:65; 9:5; 9:29; 9:73, 9:123; 33:60-62

Statistically, as their population increases in any country, so does violence. 1% to 2% of a population they are peaceful. 5%, heavy proselytizing to gain converts. 5+%, Push for halal food, pressure businesses to comply. 10%, increased lawlessness to ensure their demands. 20%, rioting, sporadic killings, burning of Christian Churches and Jewish Synagogues. 40%, Chronic terror attacks. 60%, persecution of non-Muslims, sporadic ethnic cleansing, Sharia Law, tax upon infidels. 80%, Daily intimidation, violence, state run ethnic cleansing, genocide with aim of 100% Islamic nation.

So, we need to be wary of Muslims who take the Quran seriously. It is from their holy book that the motivation to attack non-Muslims is derived.
