Lana you're right, the Islamic fanatics are a minority even in countries like Iran, but it's the heavily armed minority that controls the good majority and if the good Muslims don't stop the fanatics (that should be the real jihad) then the Islamic world will find it's self in greater conflict with the west. Silence gives consent.

The west doesn't want a fight but if a Muslim does something that is irrevocably evil then the west might become frightened enough to use it's overwhelming power to destroy Islam, know your enemy, America is big and stupid but…….if you hurt America or Europe really bad, the response will be merciless, good true Muslims must do all they can to keep their violent minority under control or the good will be seen as facilitators and all will be punished at the same time.
