I agree with you entirely. The Europeans won't do anything while they're being made dhimmis, and your own country will deal with itself (rightly so), but not the rest of the world's problem with Islamic terrorism and Islamis ideology in general.

And by the way, Kamekish, I visited India a lot while I lived/worked in Pakistan - often just to get away from those nutters. I love India, your people, and the culture there. What a relief from Pakistan India was for me. Especially Goa and Agra, and even New Delhi. Mostly though, just Amritsar across the border (from Lahore) to be around sane people for 24-48 hours.(The Golden Temple is impressive.) Nice.

Having lived and worked in Pakistan, Kuwait, and Egypt, plus having to spend time in Bahrain and Qatar and Dubai, one learns a lot about Islamic culture and ideology. Thank God I had the freedom to reject it, though for so many of my Muslim friends, they do not have that freedom and are stuck for life in a mentality they instinctively know is harmful. They are the non-religious folks who have to act religious around family and in public. The religious Muslims who follow Islam to the T are the dangerous ones.

At any rate, I'm on vacation in the states now and it's like Heaven being around good, sane people. Then off to South America where I'll be around peaceful Christians. So nice to have the Islamic world in my rearview mirror.
