in response to reader comment: What is the solution then?

" You are not fair in your assesment. Remember, it is America and the West who are supporting and nourishing these dictators. We can not do any thing until America and the West join us in bringing down the dictators and spreading democracy in the Muslim World."

"Remember, it is America and the West who are supporting and nourishing these dictators."

I believe with every fiber of my being that your dictators have been nourished and supported by the religion that has formed them. Islamist dictators exist not because of the West but in spite of the West.

"We can not do any thing until America and the West join us in bringing down the dictators and spreading democracy in the Muslim World."

What on earth do you mean "join us"! The United States of America has, most recently, brought down your dictators in Afghanistan and Iraq ... we have brought down significant numbers of Osama bin Ladin's worshippers and workers ... all the time with crazy Middle Eastern Muslim chauvinists wreaking havoc and murder upon those who help in the endeavor you only can whine about. Explain yourself honestly: Just who is the "us" you propose we join?!

Keep in mind Muhammad, that America was a colony of England before we achieved independence and became the USA. The UN didn't come in with a magic wand and fairy dust and 'give us' independence; we fought for and claimed the independence that was ours - my forefathers died in the American Revolution so that I could be free and I and billions of other free people will fight with all it takes to protect our freedom. Don't -- for even a minute don't -- forget that.

My assesment is not only fair - it's honest. The problem is with Islam. When Islam violently projects it's problems onto others - expect to have them returned to you in kind.
