>>Truly we have to stop calling a chicken a chicken just because it clucks.<<

Yes, a chicken is a chicken but you don't kill that chicken by destroying the farm because you will not only kill the chicken but the cattle, sheep, horses, etc...

It is intolerant to blame a farm (religion) for a few bad chicken. It is not Islam doing the bad things. There are some bad Muslims and those who are acting as criminals and commiting acts of terrorism should be brought to justice. Not Islam.

We have to fight against the enemy without creating more enemies. That is how we win the war on terror. We don't win it by losing the hearts and minds of all Muslims. You lose the hearts and minds of Muslims by attacking Islam. I know you can see that right??? We have to gain the hearts and minds and support of the Muslims in order to irradicate the terrorist who are using Islam as their tool for their agenda.
