Until and unless there is a split among moderate Muslims and the terrorists, there is no way that in time all muslims will be painted with the same brush. and until the good ones start speaking out more against the bad ones, not many americans are going to be trusting any arab muslim.

If indeed all they want is to be left alone ,then they need to stop all the violence until we can get our troops out of the area, but as long as they continue we will have to stay there in order to defend the good ones. no these are not freedom fighters, these are terrorists and will use terror to control the masses to either think their way or die. Not a place i would want to live in, but some of those people are so used to being told what to do and how they have to do it that they feel lost without a tribal chief, shiek,or religious leader telling them what and how to think.
