    If Allah is real wouldn't he stop the destruction of Islamic holy sites? But Allah is not real. The sites will be destroyed creating facts on the ground.

    Plus I really like the idea of destroying meteorites.
    That's more than silly.

    That really doesn't seem to be the case.

    At least, no serious research indicates such.

    I have already answered this. It will focus you and it will focus the Islamofascists.

    If we whack them hard every time they fart in polite company pretty soon they will stop farting in polite company.

    Yes, and like OWO said above, we need REALISTIC solutions to the problems we face. Going balls to the wall just because you're scared of an Islamic takeover is NOT an intelligent move IMO.

    I think if the authorities in those countries were smart they would use those films as terrorist bait.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    You lack imagination. There is no shame in it.

    Islam is a political-religious movement intended to dominate all other cultures. They need a time out. Destroying their religious centers will show everyone on both sides that they are not ten feet tall and their god is a fable.

    You are aware that they blow up each other and mosques (while people are inside them) quite often, right? I don't think that is any kind of solution whatsoever.

    I'm sorry, but that idea is comparable to the imagination of a 5-year-old . . . okay maybe a 12-year-old boy.

    Were you expecting more than I have already stated? Was I not clear enough. I make every effort to write at an eighth grade level. What do you need clarified?

    LOL. It is right. One of my heros, R. Feynman once decided to prepare a freshman physics class on a particular problem area. He finally gave up saying we did not sufficiently understand the problem so we could not simplify it.

    If you're author cannot state his thesis in one paragraph he is not worth a serious read.
