    Why does the word "radical" when applied to "Muslim" not appear in your post? The original article pointed out that the problem lies with "radical" Muslims, not Muslims in general.

    Every time someone conflates "radical" with "Muslim" it deepens the divisions between ordinary (ie non-radical) Muslims and everyone else. We should be uniting against the radicals, not splitting our allies from us.

    Not all muslims do those things, witness the large number of Muslim American citizens in this nation. Since it is indisputable fact that not all Muslims do the things you describe. In fact, it is indisuputably a vast minority of the Muslim world population who commits acts of terrorist violence, by the rules of logic, something else must motivate the individuals who commit these acts. Or are we going to say that because some American terrorists have been Christian all Christians are definitely terrorist. Just using your own logic here.

    no, you're twisting the argument to fit your agenda.
    I didnt say all Muslims. Are you making excuses for the radical ones just because of offenses by people of other religions?
    Thats mighty bigoted of you.

    Yep, all around the world, millions of Muslims are just strapping on explosives and blowing things up. Why just last Friday at the local mosque there was a bombfest. It was great. Everyone rocked up and took their bomb belts out of their cars and wandered into the forecourt of the mosque, then they left their bomb belts outside with a minder and went into prayers. When they came out they strapped the belts on and wandered off just blowing themselves up at random in various areas of town. Heck if this keeps up pretty soon we'll have to convert the mosque into a bingo parlour.

    sarcasm noted. Here in Albany, NY, out of maybe 70 Muslims, nearly 35 were arrested for plotting an attack. Blueprints for nuke devices were found in their apartment. Do you think they were just pulling a prank?

    Not sarcasm, just satirising your gross generalisation. There's a difference.

    I wasn't aware of the 35 Muslims arrested for plotting an attack in Albany. But I'd be interested to read about it if you have a link.

    what you call gross generalization is what others would call astute observations.

    anyway, here is one part of the story- http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,128088,00.html

    That's two people... not 35. And I do believe there are more than 70 muslims in Albany, NY. I think more than that probably work for the state legislature in one capacity or another, no?
