One nation? I dont think Muslims are allowed to live as one and equal nation with non Muslims, just look at Saudi Arabia Christianity is against the law like any other religion..
Most American Muslims seem to be quite happy living in one nation, equal under the law, in the U.S.
That's because overall, they are in a minority there, when they increase in numbers then they start to enforce their rules..one example is London..http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2519519/Muslim-Patrol-jailed-harassing-couple-holding-hands-men-drinking-bid-enforce-Sharia-law-East-London.html
The article indicates that the "Muslim Patrol" was inspired by an extremist, not your run-of-the-mill British imam.

The article is wrong. The major Islamic organizations in the UK and in the US are run by the Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan al-Muslimoon) organization.

Britain's Islamic Republic (2010)
Terrorists Among Us: Jihad in America (1994)

Things like this
happen in Islamic schools.
Any sources from print journals?

Christians should follow Christ.

And how exactly do we do this?
Love God and love your neighbor.

Why Muslims is the only community that try to enforce their religion on people??
Christians haven't done similarly?
Although you surprise me by defending Muslims more than Christians..
Both Muslims and Christians are human, full of imperfections and grand plans. No one is perfect.
If you will, you can become all flame.

Muslims countries are the most Christian persecuting, killings and oppressions are frequent occurances, 9 out of 10 most Christian persecuting countries in the world are Muslim countries and you think this is OK? http://m.christianpost.com/news/report-9-out-of-10-top-christian-persecution-countries-due-to-islamic-extremism--112255/
Which case/example/policy of persecution do you think is the worse?

Court cases. Print journals handling Islam, in this PC culture? Naw.
Not everything I type or have typed in the past is reflective of the teaching of the Orthodox Church, or may not reflect my contemporary views on a subject. (4/6/2015)

Glory to Jesus Christ!

You probably live somewhere where there are not many Muslims, where I live there is a lot and increasing and I can see things are changing around here...I would not like to see more Mosques than there are Churches, would you..

Depends upon the mosque...and the church. I wouldn't mind more Ismaili mosques; I'd prefer that over independent fundamental Baptist.

There is a few, the main one i'd Say Saudi were no Churches are allowed to be built or cross is allowed to be worn and where Christians can get arrested even when worshiping in the privacy of their home..
