Al, I agree with your comments. First, you must understand that, for the most part, here you are preaching to the choir. Most of us on this forum are well aware of the duplicity, of the indoctrination of hatred that goes on in arab schools and mosques. We are aware of the realities of the situation, that Muslims have a tendency to believe that land is all important (because they are of a tribal mentality that exists until this day) and that if a land was possessed by Muslims for even a day at any point in time, that land is forever Muslim, Come to think of it, they also believe that all humans are born Muslim and those who are not today have turned away from Islam and are therefore apostates. That is similar grandiose thinking. Any religion that preaches that it is the best religion and all others are false or corrupt is pretty clearly not looking to make peace and friends. They are looking to dominate and glorify their Allah and that their communities and societies encourage this and celebrate it, puts us westerners in a pretty tough position.
