I do wonder why it took this carnage of Palestinians to get their attention. Most of al Queda's victims have been Muslim all along.
Too bad this won't amount to much more than noise. It would be refreshing to see Islam take out its own trash for once.
The first thing that came to my mind however is once again the double standard applied by the left. They become incensed when ALL Muslims are stereotyped as extremists/terrorists; yet, anytime ONE nutjob Christian opens his mouth, the left represents that person as reflective of ALL Christians.
For some reason, that "logic" escapes me.

Additionally, of course, Bin Laden etal refer to our presence in the Middle East as a "crusade"; that historic reference being fresh in Islamic thinking as if it were yesterday. In the West history has changed so much in the last 600 years that the Crusades are all but forgotten. To the Arabs it is an open festering sore.
Israel is the strawman that the West is all too happy to buy into. Some go along, saying the US has supported, ignoring the general condemnation of the West in accordance with the Muslims.
HOPEFULLY, the newer generations will become more interested in having a happy family and life, than being bent on destruction and revenge. I think as more and more middle easterners become sucessful in the US, the message goes back home, and the more desirous the kids will be of an affluent life. Then maybe they will come to the conclusion, in great enough numbers, to realize its in their best interest to just leave Israel alone.
