Rakshas: Congratulations on your fine article. However, the western mindset is so warped when it comes to India's struggle against Muslim terrorism, it always considers the fight as a simple Hindu-Muslim riots with Hindus to blame all the time. You know it very well, its always the Muslims who start terrorist activities against Hindus, but do the westerners believe it? I think not. It was with this mindset Europeans, and USA blamed Hindus and Gujrat government for the riots whereas it is well documented that these resulted due to the killing of Hindu pilgrims in a train by Muslims by setting it on fire. This fact was very well ignored by the Western nations in criticizing India for Human Rights violation of Muslims. Aah, but what about the violation of the rights of those Hindu pilgrims who were brutally murdered by Muslims? Not a peep from these countries about it. I think there is a soft spot for Muslims in western mind, may be, because they being part of the fellow Abrahimic faiths.

I think westerners should not be too encouraged by the demonstrations in Jordan against the Muslim terrorists because this is not going to change any Muslims mind about killings of Infidels or for that matter, of Muslims, since its only a collateral damage in the cause of Allah. These demonstartions were encouraged, perhaps, by the Jordanian government and will be soon forgotten. Unless and until the Imams, Mullahs, Muftis and other "religious" leaders start preaching Muslim masses in their Friday sermons all over the world against these killings, its not going to stop. One can bet this is not going to happen, since it will be against their "religion".
