It's Really All Just One War, Not Three.

Reader comment on item: Sheikh Obama and His Two Wars

Submitted by orange yonason (United States), Dec 10, 2009 at 16:20

We are at war with Islam, not radical Islam.

All the conflicts can be traced to a single "root cause," the belligerence of Islam. (14,500 attacks worldwide since 9/11, as of the time of my posting).

Those Muslims who are peaceful are so either by one constraint or another (lack of means, primarily, I believe), or because they are personally not as bad as their "radical" clerics want them to be. For the latter I have much respect, because by behaving well in spite of the poisonous ideology they are immersed in, they show themselves to be genuinely good people.

But the problem is that as long as the good among them continue to adhere to the spiritual dead end that is Islam, we often cannot tell the difference between the two groups, and, sadly it seems, neither can they. The "moderates" among them, by continuing to adhere to Islam (thorough no fault of their own, mostly out of ignorance), perpetuate the illusion that their is such a beast as "peaceful" Islam.

Aside from that, I agree with Dr. Pipes' criticism of Sheikh HUSSEIN Obama, especially since even Imam Bush responded correctly to certain aspects of the threat, despite his ignorance of it's roots.
