My humble opinion

Reader comment on item: Islamism 2.0
in response to reader comment: Do you realize you repeated the same phrase without addressing the inverse?

I really enjoyed this discussion. May I be so bold as to add my half cent?

As an idealist I would say that we need to eliminate all muslims and islam. Draconian? Yes. The alternative is to eliminate me (which islam intends to do) and for which I will not stand.

The realist in me states that we should all become muslims and live in peace with the rest of the world. If the cost of fighting islam is greater than the cost of becoming muslim would we not be expressing our sanity by forming islamic societies in the west? Then, why do we continue to spend billions fighting terrorists (islam)?

If the cost of fighting islam is less than the cost of becoming muslim, then would it not be realistic to destroy islam for otherwise if we do not we revert to the 'fight islam costs more than becoming muslim'?

Or am I just insane? (I know I shouldn't worry because Obama care will help me with this!!!)
