yes, well, if you had read MY comments in context miss 'jennifer' you would know that i was not commenting on the views or integrity of Daniel pipes but on the writings of a particular Geno M. called "War Has Been Declared". perhaps you should read this article to more fully understand and appreciate my point of view. that is that Geno M.'s musings are totally out of line and completely based on fear of the unknown, and yes, i emphasize UNKNOWN.

Also to clarify, i was specifically referring to terrorist acts targeted at Americans, and the fact that the so called "War on Terror" is responsible for more civilian casualties than its opposer. probably another thing you would have picked up if you had read my comments in context.
as for your statistics, about 'peaceful religion of allah'.. well once again i stress CONTEXT!!! these may have been conducted by muslims, but almost all of them were POLITICALLY, not religiously, motivated!!!

and if we really get into it, how many deaths are caused each year by atheists? these come out of their beliefs because to them a human life is not important, so, do we deport all atheists? and lets not forget hitler, a self-professed christian responsible for the death of over 6 million jews and many more deaths of other ethnicities and casualties!!! now we may say, hitler's views were not christian or they were misgiven or cultish, but do we say the same about fundamental Islams? no, we lump the cultists with the nominals and the firm believers whose only jihad is to live the best and most moral life they can (and yes, that is the real meaning of the greatest Muslim Jihad) all together and call it 'Islamism'... are you getting my point here? the point is not an argument, and refering to statistics and bashing balls to see whose intellectual capacity and debating skill supersede, but i am trying to point out here, that before we make ignorant abusive and insulting statements about any people group, we should actually check whether we actually know anything about what we are saying!!!
