This scares more people than you know. It is not just about the west or America. I wish someone would realize that. There are many other lives at stake. It is not just your "civilization" as everyone here has put it, but it is mine too. And placing me in the same light as terrorists based on my beliefs (or what YOU regard as being my beliefs) is a slap on the face.

These terrorists have nothing to do with MY beliefs, and they are also a threat to me. Do you not think that there aren't any mothers or fathers in the middle east mourning and scolding their children when they are brainwashed into believing that they have the right to take other peoples rights based on something that they have the nerve to call a religion when it is in fact an ideology? They speak nothing of Islam. And their kind of Islam speaks nothing to me, and a lot of other people I know of.
