Why should we live in fear?

Reader comment on item: The Danger Within: Militant Islam in America [and Its Dreams of Domination]

Submitted by James (United Kingdom), Nov 15, 2004 at 15:43

I do not think it is fair that we tarnish all Muslims with the same brush BUT the extremists are becoming more militant and aggressive. i think it is time that there was a global summit to discuss these matters. it is obvious that militant Muslims are a more pro-active agressive group and this attitude is a dangerous one, especially in a western world that is becoming more tolerant toward all races and religions. Desperate times call for desperate measures; militant Muslims hate us simply because it is written that they should. That to me is a ultra-conservative and ultimately destructive way of thinking.

I am not afraid of much but the rise of Islamism is becoming a real worry to me. i just hope that people realise they are tearing the world in two rather than uniting it under their false ideals.
