in response to reader comment: It will take longer than most think it will.

Dear Barbara, if you have read any of my posts, you will readily know that I am not exactly soft on Islamists or those who perpetrate acts of terrorism in the name of Islam and that I am not a supporter of political correctness.

I was merely pointing out to Amir that it is entirely appropriate that we question what tenets of Islam give rise to the extremism that we see manifested in the Islamic world at the present time. Saying "maybe it is Islam itself" is not meant to insult; it is a legitimate question.
