If I am full of Western media, what are you full of? Obviously Islamic media which is not reliable and not truthful. I've watched Islamic media and it's laughable.

The Crusades were a complex issue but they were originally caused by Muslims trying to control Christian Holy Lands. It appears Muslims have never gotten over that defeat. President Bush has not proclaimed a new Crusades. He has proclaimed a war on Islamic terrorism which is wreaking havoc all over the world, and most countries agree with and support him.

I know that Islam hasn't evolved because I see it in action. In fact, it is going backward. It keeps people 1,000 years behind in their thinking. It advocates the murder of innocent people and the oppression and mutilation of women, among other things.

Israelis have a right to a homeland and there is plenty of room for Palestinians to move eastward. They are just being greedy and showing their hatred for Jews by refusing to do so. The only problem with Palestinians moving eastward is that no other country wants them close either, including Islamic countries.

If Europeans had colonized your countries, they would still be there. But they aren't. They have their own beautiful countries and they don't want yours.

I am not a terrroist just because I support what Americans and others are doing to bring peace to the world. I support the Jewish state but that does not make me a terrorist either. Israelis are my fellow human beings and they have a right to live. If you don't believe that, then you must believe that your Allah made a mistake in creating them.

Any religion that tells people to kill others is not a religion but a political weapon. You may not want democracy but perhaps you haven't lived under the rule of the Taliban. People who have, especially females, are very happy that someone is fighting for their freedom. The conditions in Afghanistan are a result of adherence to Islamic law which is what creates the ignorance and the local traditions to which you refer.

The war is NOT about oil. Americans are currently buying oil from Arabs so why would they kill people for it when they already have access to it?

Islam is not a religion of peace. If it was, its followers would denounce terrorists who are using Islam as a weapon to murder innocent people. 911 was the result of Muslim terrorists adhering to the most horrific parts of Islam which state that Muslims must kill infidels. If Islam was a religion of peace, Muslims would show that they care about Humanity and about the way terrorists are using their religion. But they don't.

We in the West don't care if the Muslim masses are boiling. They have used ancient Islamic teachings to arouse aggression in each other. They refuse to forget the past which cannot be changed and for which none of us alive today are responsible. They refuse to see reason and to live in the 21st Century along with everyone else in the world. Their lack of education and savagery have caused the civilized world to see them as a threat to every living thing on Earth. If Muslims continue being inhumane, they will be dealt with decisively. It continues to be the responsibility of the most developed nations to keep peace in the world and currently the biggest threat to the Earth and everything on it is Muslim terrorism.

Americans will never elect a President who has even the slightest whisper of a connection to Islam. If by some chance they did, he wouldn't last very long. Americans have a habit of assassinating Presidents that they don't like - and believe me, they wouldn't like a Muslim President.
