absolutely right, Jason, and lest some Muslim think that i should be burned at the stake for my writings here, too, i am not criticizing Islam or Mohammed or anything else like that.

i am criticizing what has come to be called Islamofascism today: the beliefs, actions and people who have taken some of the most beautiful prose and poetry in the world and twisted it into the rhetoric of hatred and have killed thousands, if not tens or hundreds of thousands in the name of that twisted thought.

as a VERY old friend of mine once put it,

"If, right here and now, I could convince you completely that God exists......... OR that God doesn't exist............ and, out of that convincing, you were to suddenly change the way you behave... the way you live your life..................... you really should take a hard look at how you're living your life NOW."

i believe that very strongly.

Submitting....
