in response to reader comment: 12 Muslims going after cartoonist's daughter

That makes sense. I guess when they have a large enough percentage in our Western world, then they can make an attack against that world in which they chose to live, a place where they have had all the opportunities possible handed to them. Something they were unable to achieve in their beloved homeland.

In an earlier posting, a Muslim went on and on about all the education in their family and it was impressive. The list included all kinds of family members with all kinds of degrees and great careers. The posting was meant to show that we weren't arguing with some dumb Muslim who rides a camel, but it made me think where did you get all those opportunities? The West. It makes me wonder if it's just the extremists that are endangering civilized people. There's a young man facing nine counts of murder and probably a charge of terrorism for running his SUV into a crowd of fellow college students the other day that seems to prove my point. He was educated, going to college in the U.S., on the dean's list, but I believe his downfall was he's Iranian. Something that no matter how much education you have, you're still grounded in a very violent mindset that seems to me is stemming from the Q'uran. I know that will make people mad, but that just seems to be the common thread.
