56 or so MILLION people died in WW2. Nazi's and the Japanese almost took over the ENTIRE world.

You have whined about far less than even 1/2 million, about which what ENDED the slaughtering. Great job.

When the argument is a question " Are the people bad because of one apple ?" - EVERYONE already knows the answer. I wonder WHY people play a game asking that question. I really do. I gues they assume everyone but themselves are a complete idiot, a bigot, a racist, and probably a two toothed throwback.

I think this much is very clear. Wherever we in the west see Islam, we see war, death, and takeover of nations. Purging of the indigenous, a barbaric legal system, raging murdering by the masses in the streets, stonings, hangings, and limbs chopped off by the ruling governments as "just punishments".

I really must say, if the answer is "they're all not bad" , the BELIEVERS in that idea as a stance, need to MOVE THERE, and prove they can avoid the bad apples, to the rest of us. Tell ya what, not many residence addresses will be changing anytime soon. No, indeed, very, very few will. The few that have the GUTS, and make no mistake it would require an IMMENSE amount of guts, and they will truly live in fear, 24/7/365, and it won't be "fear of Bush and his neocon regime" yelled from a march in western streets, or held up as a sign in a lib rally. Just TRY that crap "over there" against "Bush's equivalent" - and your scars from the days in jail and the lashes will never leave you.

No Anne, they aren't all bad people, but I find it absolutely hilarious to think you'll be taking the chance to actually find out.
