"When, because of 3,000 Americans who died on 9/11, 30,000 innocent Iraqis (who had nothing to do with 9/11) died under a US occupation, then the average Muslim will see this as a war against Islam."

Of those, how many Iraqis were killed by muslims?

"When average Palestinians in the occupied territories are treated as if they are terrorists, and when Muslim women have to give birth on Israeli checkpoints, and when ghettos are created as a result of the wall that the zionists are building, then yes, average Muslim Palestinians will perceive that they are not being differentiated with those who carry out terrorist attacks. And as a result of this perception the average Muslim Palestinian will vote for Hamas. "

Which came first, the suicide bomber or the wall?

"When redneck nazi thugs and sexual perverts and deviants in Abu Graib torture and abuse innocent Iraqis (innocent because no Iraqi in US controlled jail in Iraq has been given any form of legal trial), then the average Muslim will see this as a war against Islam."

When arab/muslim thugs and barbaric murderers hack off heads of innocent peace workers and civilians rebuilding Iraq without trial in insurgent controlled areas of Iraq, then the average westerner will see barbaric muslims who are not being policed by their own.

"When US foreign policy supports dictators and autocrats who repress their Muslim populations then the average Muslim will see this as a war against Islam."

When Islamic leaders support terrorist organisations and openly praise murderers who are doing it in the name of their God. The average westerner will see this as a war against every non-muslim.

You see. We could go on. For every point there is a counter point.
