    I think we've hit a turning point. Weird that a Pope caused it, though he didn't mean to.

    I didn't have to get past the first line:

    "Al-Qaida in Iraq warned Pope Benedict XVI on Monday that its war against Christianity and the West will go on until Islam takes over the world,...."

    What part of this is it the ostriches don't understand?

    It's very hard to understand anything from that angle

    We're capable of wiping this scourge from the face of the Earth. Yet we sit and twiddle our thumbs and tie our soldiers hands behind their backs.

    If becomming a highly-civilized, intellectual society is what it's taken rob us of our ability to recognize a threat and our will to survive, you can have it.

    I think the new report is right... the leaders calling for those actions, the hate spreading power hungry people that know no other way, I don't think they understand more than the visible and obvious diffrences between their religion and ours. This remark is typical: "they have a cross, they drink wine. They are different, - see?" That is about the depth their own theological knowledge reach.

    I will try not to help those forces by further stressing the differences between us. Instead I will support and welcome moderate muslims in their strive to keep some dignity when their whole belief system is undermined by their "fellows".
