'you guys hate us' - I do not hate you, but we live in troubled times, and it is difficult to speak wisely when there is so much fear and uncertainty.

I too am angry about many things happening in the world today, but if we all go on being angry with each other then eventually only the sword will answer.

And that is what the fundamentalists want - chaos, misery and bloodshed, out of which they think their new order will arise. They will use any methods to achieve this, and any issue can be twisted to be used in their plans. Now it is cartoons, later it may be female circumcision, they will not care just as long as they are stirring the pot !

You say that you are not like them, and I do not doubt you, because really they are the ones who hate you, just as they hate anyone who does not share their narrow and bloodthirsty views.
