Yes, Octavio, how big of you that you're so inclusive and tolerant and "no conservative" (as if conservatives aren't these things). The world IS interesting because of different cultures, indeed. But I'm sure you realize there is a very sizable element out there called Islamists that don't see things your way or mine or the way of any "tolerant" and inclusive person; they want you to live only one way and think only their way or they want you dead, and they are willing to die for Allah to see that that happens. They are bent on Islamicizing the entire planet for Allah, and that means destroying Western culture and laws and our diversity of thought. If you don't believe that, you're simply asleep and need to wake up or you're a fool.

And if you do know this to be true than you must understand that for our survival - if you think Western culture is worth saving - we must resist this large element element of Islam. Be tolerant and inclusive all you want - and good for you - but when it comes to people who are actively planning, recruiting, brainwashing, training and executing orders to destroy us, being "tolerant" as akin to cutting our own throats.
