    Have to give credit where it is due .... at least Osama is calling a spade a spade, even if he has his own little spin to it.

    The West IS at war with radical Islam. Wonder when the West is going to come to grips with it .....

    Agreed, but the PC police would say he's speaking as a 'radical Islamic'.

    LOL, that's what I was implying; however, I think the PC police would take issue with me as a member! :dev3:

    Openly declaring war against Islam would devestate whatever support for the war on terror is left. And PC police are on both sides of the fence.

    and I just keep wondering where these 'non-radicals' are. Oh I've read some very good ones, but I'd have to say they quickly match up with our 'secular Christian elites'. They know their religion, but are mostly lip service about it. It's the vast 'billion or so' of the faithful that scare me.

    It seems to me that most Muslims follow the imams, most of whom seem just slightly more educated than their followers.

    I kind of liken radical Islam to radical Christians who in the name of saving lives will blow up an abortion clinic and kill everyone inside. :cuckoo:

    When said Christians do something "smart" like that, mainstream Christianity is quick to disassociate itself from them. The same cannot be said for mainstream Islam, and it is "what's missing."

    The fact is, most Arabs distrust us more than they are willing to break face with their radical counterparts. There is also the fact that they radical Muslims have no problem whatsoever of murdering their own for speaking against them as quickly as they would murder one of us. Fear is a great motivator.

    All I can assume is that the "non-radicals" haven't done anything---yet.
