Islam in fact supports class divides while stressing justice and equal rights for every body. But according to Islam you have to accept your circumstances and struggle for the survival.
It's outrageous to claim that Islam supports class divides. Class divides, especially those that exist in Indian Sub-continent, are hereditary and oppressive, and not based on merit. Class divide in Pakistan is derived from caste system that was prevalent in the pre-islamic past of Pakistan.

Class divide in terms of social-economic and not Indian caste system, where you have social and economic restrictions based upon birth.  In other words, Islam would not support the “Robin Hood” rob from the rich to give to poor, as there is nothing wrong with being rich.

But the class divide in Pakistan is akin to caste system practiced in India.
Fyi...

Taliban and any groups that resemble them are a black stain on all Muslims.

Ends do not justify the means.

Islam does not mean cruel, backwards or murderous.

Might does not make right.

What would say about the adversaries?

And where were the Muslims when their homeland got bombed and countless got killed by Bush under what rules? And Now BHO is no different....A related article below!

Ends do not justify the means.

Will you justify means like drone attacks and carpet bombing by the combined forces of the western world? IT has been seven years a longest America war and there is no end in sight.....We will see when the end comes LOL

Islam does not mean cruel, backwards or murderous.

This is a meaningless statement ...The universal rules... once war is imposed on ... have all options under the circumstances to survive and fight back...

Might does not make right.

Who has the might here? Need elaboration!

Signreader- Obama was all about change but if the violence in Iraq doesn't stop, will he continue the pullout of troups?

candid - Islam does have a "caste system"- different treatment for different groups of people, Muslim, Christian, Jew, pagan, atheist, etc.
 
No death penalty for killing a non-Muslim is not equal treatment.
 
With the taliban there are 2 classes- men and women
No school for women and complete covering.  Is there complete covering for men? No school for men?

I agree completely with "Ends do not justify the means".  I am so glad Obama condemned the torture of prisoners.
