Your guest is t he "jesus " of today.Abosolutily no need religion for any goodness of this planet.His observations regarding Islam is accurate. I grew up in Bangladesh in a Muslim family.Where people take a great deal of pride of Bin laden.Where you can get killed just to say any word against Islam.
