I am afraid your "idea" of the western world is uneducated and narrow. It is people like you that have created what is going on. For years, and years, and years the western logo has been "Peace in the East." There has been wars with your religion for hundreds of years, what did the western world have to do with that? Maybe you should start within your own circle of people before you blame the world for your strife.

You have no idea of how many westerners would love to have the middle-east take their oil and cram it. But no, we have to worry about the destruction it would bring to every countries stability, including the middle-easts means of supporting themselves. Thank God it's not the other way around, from what I see we would just be blown up and you would take what you want in the name of Allah.

Muslims are not the only people that are insulted by some of what goes on, but we diplomatically try to change it in the west, have laws, limitations, we don't murder, maime, and execute people to get our way. There are enough sick people EVERYWHERE in the world to deal with let alone fighting extremists.

Where would the middle-east be if they didn't have oil? NO WHERE. We have a whole country that has it's problems but we can agree, or agree not to disagree. Iraq can't even come to terms because one is worried about their share of the oil, this sect might have more than us...and we are the pig capitalists. I don't see this as a holy war, I see this as a power struggle, power and money, nothing to do with religion. Apparently we are ALL capitalists.

All I heard in the response was anger and blame and hatered, isn't that where it all begins.

Submitting....
