Jennifer, thank you for your comments. I don't think Muslims as Muslims are the enemy. It is the stuff that they are indoctrinated with in their madrassas and schools. There are many website which give transcripts of khutbas which are nothing but hate speeches. The pakistani and Saudi school curriculums have also been examined extensively on the web and the hate they contain is mind-boggling.

The large majority have no clue to what Islam actually teaches. They are not aware of verses like 9:111. And when they do question their ulema about it they it is passed off as misnterpretation and its being pulled out of context. But quite a few take the Koran at its word and are manipulated by their imams and politicians to blow up themselves and the unbelievers.

I think Daniel Pipes should write something about the Pakistani and Saudi school curricula and start a debate here.

regards

Plato
