Hi Sara....it's very nice to hear from someone as sensible as you. This way of thinking, if it reigns, will be the beginning of the alliance of the civilizations.

I'm sure most of your people think as same as you but sadly those who are extreme are in charge. You're right, extremists are always going to exist but the trick is not to allow them to gain power.

Here, in the Middle-East, we made the mistake of letting these extremists grow out of proportion but that is primarily due to our lack in military power, money and most important of all EDUCATION.

Education and Knowledge are the most powerful weapons against extremism, as it prevents it from spreading Therefore, I urge you not to make the same mistake that we did and give extremists power, especially to the most powerful nation in the world. So vote Obama…hehe.Take care

Submitting....
