"But it still doesn't change the fact that the roots of the current conflict lie in our treatment of Muslims"

WOW, that statement gave me no choice but to reply to you on this. This kind of mentality has to be corrected as is the problem with a lot of Westerners who sympathize with muslims and almost condone terrorism as their right to defend themselves.

First, let me say you are very fortunate to be born a christian in a christian country, i think you take that for granted. You have the right faith and are allowed to freely practice it. Secondly, let me englighten you on the treatment of christians and non-muslims in Muslim countries and then tell me if you still feel that the way Chrisitians or specfically filipino christians treatment of muslims has anything to do with why they commit terrorism in the name of allah.

The Koran on fighting infedels(jews and christians)

"The unbelievers among the People of the Book [Christians and Jews], and the pagans, resent that any blessing should have been sent down to you from your Lord" (2:105).

"[We] shall let them live awhile, and then shall drag them to the scourge of the Fire. Evil shall be their fate" (2:126).

"The unbelievers are like beasts which, call out to them as one may, can hear nothing but a shout and a cry. Deaf, dumb, and blind, they understand nothing" (2:172).

"Slay them wherever you find them. Drive them out of the places from which they drove you. Idolatry is worse than carnage. . . . [I]f they attack you put them to the sword. Thus shall the unbelievers be rewarded: but if they desist, God is forgiving and merciful. Fight against them until idolatry is no more and God's religion reigns supreme. But if they desist, fight none except the evil-doers"(2:190–93).

"Fighting is obligatory for you, much as you dislike it. But you may hate a thing although it is good for you, and love a thing although it is bad for you. God knows, but you know not" (2:216).

"They will not cease to fight against you until they force you to renounce your faith—if they are able. But whoever of you recants and dies an unbeliever, his works shall come to nothing in this world and in the world to come. Such men shall be the tenants of Hell, wherein they shall abide forever. Those that have embraced the Faith, and those that have fled their land and fought for the cause of God, may hope for God's mercy" (2:217–18).

Let's look at how Muslims treat the minority Christians and Jews in Muslim countries that practice the Koran and see if we are the problem>>>>

...Thousands of rioters burned 15 churches in Maiduguri [Nigeria] in a three-hour rampage before troops and police reinforcements restored order, Nigerian police spokesman Haz Iwendi said. Iwendi said security forces arrested dozens of people in the city about 1,000 miles northeast of the capital, Lagos.

Chima Ezeoke, a Christian Maiduguri resident, said protesters attacked and looted shops owned by minority Christians, most of them with origins in the country's south.

"Most of the dead were Christians beaten to death on the streets by the rioters," Ezeoke said. Witnesses said three children and a priest were among those killed...

Believe me, the list goes on and on and on and on of minority chrisitians whom already have no rights being slaughtered by muslims in their own countries of origin. In Egypt for example, the Coptic Orthodox church existed there 600 years before Islam existed!!! Please dont ever think that any form of mistreatment against a muslim has anything to do with terrorism, Jihad is a duty in their religion the so called "fanatics" are just the ones whom are actually being good muslims and doing their duty as muslims. For any more questions feel free to ask your brother in christ > Morous
