You want problems Brazil? Then let Islam come in! I am from a Muslim country - Algeria - and it is an awful, hateful religion. Pick any page in the Coran, and see for yourself! Don't believe all these people that say Oslam is peaceful, etc. Read a couple of pages for yourself and see. Most people are Muslims as a result of invasion - like Algeria, or because they were born into it - no choice and apostasy can get you killed. Stay away from this death cult!

Man I really don't think you understand Islam, it is all about peace. You should read it in a English version to actually comprehend what Islam talks about. Btw, it's called a Quran not a coran..
