in thread A religous one

anyway the fact that most of the terrorism you hear of is islamic, that there is virtualy no single place where there is no turmoil anywhere where muslims mix with anyone else (be it christians, hindus, jews or others), surely does mean something."

Ah yes, let's all forget terrorism before 2001. ETA, IRA, McVeigh anyone? The fact that you hear most about Islamic terrorism, is due to the insane media coverage this whole War on Terror[sic]. Israel surely ain't Islamic, yet they could be branded terrorists... oh no! They're the good guys stopping it! How stupid of me. The US is colonizing a country, oh no! Wrong again, they're the good guys, liberating it. It's only about what point of view you'd like to see.

We do handle (or at least try to) our fanatics. You can't say the same thing about them. (The "We" in the previous sentence doesn't mean christians, since that would not include me. It means the western civilization.)

Ah yes, the good, brave, peace loving western "civilization" ... known for colonies and extreme battlefields. Heck, two world wars started in this so called western civilization! And if Bush continues, the third will be started (albeit on from a different continent this time).
