    Can someone tell me where the Middle Ground is with the Islamists?...

    The want Conversion or Death...

    Pretty much Death to all of the Jews...

    So where do we Start with the Negotiations?...

    Half the Jews and 1/4 of all other Westerners?...

    Will that Satisfy them?...

    Any Thoughts?

    :)

    peace...

    The only thing I can say is that peaceful practicing Muslims out-number these Islamists, and so they're just like any other radical murderous group. Neo-Nazis, Skinheads, Hell's Angels, Bloods, Crips, KKK etc. etc. They're just another scum of the earth posse bent on violence.

    Really?... Those other Groups are Targeting EVERYONE in the Western Civilization, from Jewish Children on School Buses, to our World Trade Center, to Homosexuals in ANY of these Islamist Nations?...

    Sorry, but there is NO Analogy from the Islamists to ANY of the Groups you Listed.

    There's an analogy: they commit heinous acts of violence. Who(m) they commit them to is a futile argument because they're all wrong, and so to classify them all in the same group is not so absurd. A life is a life and they all take lives, and to-which degree each group hates and takes lives doesn't matter to me. I want them all annihilated. What's the point, anyways?

    Asking "why" for any group like this, is like .....boring. It's as irrelevant as walking up to a stranger and talking about something as inane as the weather. They just DO hate. It's there, to deal with, as-are the other groups. Such as life.

    Do they? And how is that working out in practice? I assume you have some facts, other than your interpretation of the Koran to back you up? I'll help you out...here's the State Department's 2008 Report on International Religious Freedom. Go and find the majority Muslim countries, and report back the number of forced conversions and deaths due to refusal to convert. If you find incidents in most Islamic states, I'll cede your point. Good luck. But I suspect you won't bother.

    Stereotyping much, are we?

    There's a billion Islamics in this world.

    My guess is most of them just want to go along to get along just like most Christians, most Jews, most Hindus and any other relgious order one can think of.

    We should nuke mecca, then begin negotiations for them to surrender and stfu. Then we should round up all the muzzyz in the western world and make them all walk back to their cat litter country.

    As has been pointed out, the OP is absurd because not all "Islamists" believe that. Not even close.

    The radicals might believe that, and that is not unique to Islam. Some Christians and Jews have equally fascistic views.

    The solution to that is not to negotiate or legitimize people who believe such things.

    Yeah, other than the acts of terror they all commit, there is absolutely no connection.

    I love how people try and pigeon hole hate.

    Our situation in the Islamic world would be much less dichotic (good vs. bad) if W. had made the right moves after 9-11.

    That would have been to not invade Iraq (and give the Islamic world a chance to play the victem) and try start building bridges to more moderate Islamic movements who condemned that action.

    He squandered our best chance to address the problem of Islamic terrorism.

    His biggest failure, IMO.

    None of the Groups you Listed have Activists who are Hunting other Humans Today because of their Skin Color or Religious Beliefs...

    And a Base of "Beleivers" who are Hard Pressed to Denounce Acts of Terror by thier Militants...

    :)

    peace...
