Mulla, thanks for your thoughtful and accurate comments. I honestly believe that people like Chris, and the Westerners and free thinking peoples we see today out in the streets not just protesting Israel, but supporting Hamas, are the kind of people that need to be educated on Islam and the jihad we are seeing worldwide.

Islamists will never change with dialogue or negotiation. They will only use us as they always have to further the implimentation of their own world view. So called "moderate" Muslims too are really unreachable because of the deeply engrained concept of the ummah and supporting it no matter what.

Thankfully most Muslims don´t actively support terror and a worldwide caliphate, but neither will they ever try stop or even speak out against it. All out war is coming, whether Obama or Brown or Olmert or India or Pakistan or the Taliban or whoever or wherever the flames we see now turn into the brushfire - it´s coming whether in five years or twenty years. Islam has made that unavoidable for anyone who is determined to live free in a democracy with free speech and free will and choice.

People and nations will have to choose sides, as black and white as that is. It´ll be Islam against the rest of us. My fear is that there are too many people in Europe and even many in North America that think like Chris and the loons we see here supporting Hamas. For us it will take a WWII type effort of single-mided purpose and support of our nations. Division and non-support will be our death warrant.

You will see none of this in the Islamic world, which will as a whole infuse the war with religious furvor and like enraged maniacs flood the battlefields to fight and fully support anything and everything for the ummah, while we here in the West may nuance things like Chris does, and like so many of our peace-at-any-cost and the we-can-talk-our-way-out-of-this-war people will do, divide us, which will greatly aid the enemy. I think most Euros will succumb to Islam, and hopefully there aren´t too many people like Chris in North America, Australia, New Zealand, Far Asia, and others who´ll have to carry the fight for democracy and freedom to survive in the world. Fatalistic view of things, I know, but I´m a realist, and the writing is all over the walls. And I care deeply about the world my grandchildren and future Americans will live in.
