Who cares and what is the difference?

Reader comment on item: Islam and Islamism: Faith and Ideology
in response to reader comment: IS the problem Arabs or Islamists?

Submitted by sara (United States), Jun 29, 2012 at 21:28

Who cares if Arabs are fit or unfit to govern themselves? Who cares if they were socialist or secular once? What is the relevance? All that we should be concerned with is keeping them contained and the damage to a minimum as much as is possible. Does that sound bad? No, it is being realistic to acknowledge that they are proselytizers and advocates of Sharia law and Islamic cultural practices that conflict drastically with western cultural codes and behavior.

And really, how do you define the difference between Jihadists and Islamists? Islamists are one hundred percent behind every Jihadist and agree condone and even aid their acts. They all share the same beliefs, so how exactly are you distinguishing again?

You did not reply to my other questions, and your answers are relevant to mine.
