I believe later on in my article I did qualify my assertions, I probably should not have put a blanket coverage on all muslims, or made my article sound like we should not have a dialogue of some kind with them, I have a family who is muslim who lives on my street close to me, and we are friendly to them and share with them, not in a preachy kind of way, the wife of this neighbor does ask questions which opens the door to the gospel, I realize these people grew up knowing nothing else, and if we ever intend to reach them, we can not be rude or hostile toward them, I suppose I left the word "Radical" out of my article, they are taught that Christians are their enemies from a child in most or all muslim nations,

I look at the carnage across the globe today and who is the biggest contributor to most or all of it ? Muslims. Israel gets the blame for over aggression in the area, but exercises her soverign right as a nation to defend her citizens and borders, so if I sounded like I was anti-anybody, I am man enough to apologize.
