Resolved Question: Is it possible to reason
2/09 Syrian Arab News Agency: Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Erdagon said it this way: "Islam means peace, and it cannot tolerate terrorism. We reject all attempts to link Islam with terrorism.”
But how does that dogma relate to the reality of events like this:
5/11/12 AKI adnkronos.com: Thousands of ethnic [Muslim] Albanians on Friday protested in the capital Skopje and several other cities over the jailing of five of their co-nationals in connection of killing of five [Christian] Macedonians last April. Demonstrators carried banners “Muslims are not terrorists”, “Pristina, Tirana – ethnic Albania” and glorifying the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), which fought for Kosovo independence from Serbia. Demonstrators smashed windows on the government building in Skopje, but there were no other major incidents. Protests were also held in other Albanian-populated cities like Tetovo, Debar, Kicevo, Struga and Gostivar. Macedonian police have said April killings of four Macedonian youths and a middle aged man, while fishing on a lake near Skopje, were carried out by a “terrorist group of radical Islamists”.
Ethnic Albanians make about 25 per cent of Macedonia’s two million population. They rebelled in 2001, demanding more rights in regional autonomy, but the dispute was resolved through international mediation with most Albanian demands met. Demonstrators on Friday carried banners demanding unification with Albania and Kosovo in a single “ethnic Albanian state”.
Google search “civil wars in the world” then research each individual civil war and you will find one common combatant in 90% of them: Muslim extremists. Muslim extremists are involved in civil wars in China, Russia, Bosnia, Cyprus, Macedonia, Israel, Mali, Pakistan, India, Indonesia-Ambon & Halmarhera, Côte d'Ivoire, Kashmir, Kosovo, Albania, Kurdistan, Kirghizia, Nigeria, Philippines, Somalia, Turkey, Chechnya, Sudan, Yemen, Thailand, Uganda, Azerbaijan and East Timor.
And "Islam is a religion of peace"?

Resolved Question: Questions about Skopje,
I have been to the Republic of Macedonia a few times, but I have never really been to Skopje. I've only seen Tetovo, Struga, Ohrid, and my hometown of Debar. I am really interested in exploring Skopje this year. I have a few questions:
1. As a 23 year old Albanian, should I have anything to worry about the tension between Albanians and Slavs in Skopje? I don't have any hate towards Slavs and I won't be doing things to try and offend them, but should I still be worried?
2. What are some must-see places that I should see there? (parks, museums, rivers, bridges, etc. etc.)
3. What are some good cafes, bars, and nightclubs? Is there a section of Skopje that has cool hangout spots?
4. I speak very little Macedonian, but am fluent in Albanian and English. Will I have a hard time getting around Skopje? (I will be with a relative that speaks Macedonian, but just in case since I know that 60% of Skopje is slavs.)
5. Anything else that you would like to tell me about Skopje?
