"When it is repeated often by people in the West (and many people in this forum) that the problem is not radical Islam, but Islam itself then the average Muslim is bound to feel that the war is against him/her too."

Bader, who declared the war? We respond to acts of terror and you claim that you are being mistreated. It's too much.
When President Bush said: 'with us or against us', he was referring to governments that had supported terrorist operations, in one way or another. They had a chance to stop what they were doing. If you consider that a war against ordinary Muslims, then that says something disturbing about ordinary Muslims. It says you condone wanton killing of people who are doing you no harm without warning and without giving them a chance to defend themselves. Unlike those in the World Trade Center, the people of Iraq had ample warning. If you can't see the difference between war and murder then there is no hope for you. If ordinary Muslims admire Osama bin Laden, shield him from apprehension by authorities, vote for terrorists, donate to "charities" that finance terrorist acts then how do rational people NOT believe that ordinary Muslims share the same goals?

YOU have to decide which side you're on. That's all the president said.

This fatwa came out more than a year BEFORE 9/11.
The title of the article: All Religions Other than Islam are Heresy.
It states that all religions other than Islam are heresy and that churches are not allowed in Saudi Arabia.
'There shall not be two religions together in the Arabian Peninsula'
Just imagine what would happen if a Jewish authority said mosques were not allowed in the land of the Jews and of Jesus Christ.

This is just part of what your imams preach.

"Thus the 'ulama agreed that it is forbidden to build heretical houses of worship - such as Christian churches - in a Muslim country, and that it is forbidden for there to be two directions of prayer coexisting in a Muslim country, and that there should be no symbol of unbelief, neither churches nor anything else. They agreed that it is obligatory to destroy any church or other heretical house of worship that was built after [the advent of] Islam, and it is forbidden to oppose the ruler in the matter of its destruction, and he must be obeyed.

"The 'ulama agreed that building heretical houses of worship, such as churches, in the Arabian Peninsula is the most weighty of sins and the worst of crimes, because there are reliable and explicit sayings of the Prophet [hadith] that prohibit the existence of two religions in the Arabian peninsula [i.e. another religion in addition to Islam], among them the Prophet's words that were related by [Imam] Malik and others and were recorded in the Sahihayn [the two most authoritative collections of hadith for Sunni Muslims compiled by Al-Bukhari and by Muslim]: 'There shall not be two religions together in the Arabian Peninsula.'
