> So tell me Ianus? Why do you personally hate Islam?

"Personally" ? It is quite an impersonal feeling, phonetics.

> Did they do something personally to you?

Again "personally" ? They are un-persons to me...

> What was the Islamics name?

Allah, Muhammad , the Quran ...

This is prejudice... and this is what will not solve anything...

> fighting terror with more brute force does nothing but increase the terror.

Wrong! It is the right and most rational means to minimize terror... It is like fighting bandits. Don't use force and you'll see how banditry will "decrease"....

Why not instead educate yourself and see why bandit's become bandits? why not see what can be done to change their ways, that of banditry? But before you do that, try and see if they really are bandits...

> I mean Hiroshima and Nagasaki was a long time ago,

Not so long ago to my mind!

> I'm sure everyone has forgotten.

Not the Japanese, not anyone interested in history.

> Especially the children and their parents who are still having to bare the brunt of post nuclear radioactivity.

How much does Saudi Arabia pay in charities to them ? They prefer to support those great terrorists' families that "are still having to bear the brunt of post suicide-bombing ecstasy".

This is whats called sarcasm. And I KNOW FIRST HAND that the japanese have never forgotten, nor have their brothers and sisters who were convicted and "jailed" in camps for being Japanese Americans. Seeing as you are the great historian and thinker (according to you only) perhaps you could suggest that to your government. It'd be like another world war was going on. That would most probably be the only thing that could satisfy you, blood, blood, hate, hate... That's all that you know and speak of... This forum might be a place to discuss these problems and find solutions, but it has a very narrow mind when it comes to solutions and a wider vocabulary when it comes to threats and offense. Even the suggestion of COMMUNICATION and UNDERSTANDING and NOT BEING PREJUDICE are all brushed off and retaliated in the most disgraceful way, and you call Muslims heathens? And you are civilized? I guess civilization IS a wheel, going round and round, and before you know it you're on the bottom and not the top. So there will I leave you Ianae. A sad case indeed.
