    Why? The holy Islamic site is not much more than a meteorite in a box. Do you object to destroying meteorites?

    Do you see getting their attention as barbaric?
    Correction: I see bombing Mecca as barbaric, AND anyone who supports bombing or nuking Mecca as barbaric.

    I think you like being "controversial"

    Now tell me why. Tell me why destroying a piece of rock in a box is a big deal other than as a means to get the attention of a very large number of barbaric people.

    Do you agree or disagree that the destruction of the holy site in Mecca would focus attention?

    Would it be alright if someone were to destroy the holy sites of Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc?

    If you mean focus attention on you... yes.

    Turning the entire world against you is what it would do.

    There is no war with Islam. There is no war at all, really. There are a few criminals who don't like the west, but they're really no different from the violent gangs we have in our inner cities.
