    The world would be a whole lot better off if people would just stop pretending they see nothing but peace-loving Muslims everywhere they look. Anybody who thinks this isn't a holy war of some kind is deluding themselves. Tancredo was right.

    Wow, such honesty is refreshing! Notice he thinks women are a valuable thing. Pretty much sums up islam's view of women: valuable things to possess.

    And this raises a huge difference between islam and Judaism (and likely Christianity). Jews have a holy day called Yom Kippur where you have to fast from sunset to sunset. The "laws" require you to go without any sort food or water so the question arises: what about sick people? The Jewish stance is that you will "live" by these laws, not "die" by them which I always thought was a pretty cool way of looking at things. If following a "law" will cause your death, you do not have to follow it. I suspect that most Christian denominations have a similar philosophy. If islam has such little respect for the muslim's individual life, how can we expect muslims to have any respect for the lives of others?

    Horhay,
    Have to agree. There seems to be some ratcheting up from the radicals and mostly calls for 'ending prejudice' and disclaimers for bombings in the guest countries where the imams are located, from the moderates.

    This past weekend there were popular Muslim demonstrations, to condemn the terror, mostly in Asia, but in a few spots in Europe and Egypt too, but few seemed to show up.
