in response to reader comment: Islam and Nazism

To maintain that Nazism was not a Western phenomenon is ludicrous. Germany was a Christian country with a virulent history of Christian anti-semitism. Hitler considered himself a Christian, as did all of the Third Reich. But, fighting for good or for the bad--take your pick--the West can also boast Franco, Mussolini, Stalin, Vichy, Roosevelt, and Truman, all of whom were slaughtering millions of people while the Arabs peaceably watched a Western world gone mad. I suspect that Westerners have slaughtered tens of millions more humans then Arabs ever have in World History. Not that anyone's keeping count, are they?

And they call Westerners more civilized. Jeez, people, get over yourselves and start living in the REAL world.
