    So, now that you can't get me to agree with you, you resort to the Ignorance accusation. Well, I guess if you can't come up with a reasonable response, it makes you feel better to assume you are the expert and I am the lowly ignorant one. What ever floats your boat.

That is simply not the truth.
    What does India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan have to do with the ME? So where were all those Allegedly tolerant Muslims standing in front of all the US Embassies. Telling their fellow practicioners that they shouldnt be hurting anyone. Destroying Property that is not theirs? Where were the Sunni Clerics in the ME? Where were the Religious leaders in the other countries that Rioted. Are you still going to say that it wa just Fringe Groups

    You are aware they did not just Protest Embassies. But that of Overseas US Schools and Buisnesses, plus most of Military Installations......Right?

    Again what was the Reason Israel, England and Germany were being Rioted for? Since they did not have anything to do with the Film and US Citizen.

    Where are all the broadcasts and of all these other Muslims from all over the World outfront condemning what the Sunni Clerics in Egypt Started? Why are they not telling those Religious leaders to step fown. That they have no sway over others anymore? Where is all this preaching of tolerance and accepting us and others? How many Muslims leaders did you say were telling all Muslim to not follow these charlatans. hat these Religious Leaders cannnot be acceptd by Islam?

    My advice? Think about what you are saying. I mean step outside of your anger induced irrationality-bubble and really THINK about it. Not too late to retract.
    You and Hairytic make it sound as though we're using a single, isolated incident to lambaste an entire group when in reality it has been a roughly daily occurrence for decades spread throughout the world. It's hard to pick up a newspaper with an international section, like The New York Times, and not see stories of suicide bombers, embassy attacks, etc. involving Muslims. The only non-Muslims I have ever really seen in stories like that are drug cartels - which, I assume you also defend.

    At some point political correctness has to give way to the reality that Muslims (and the drug cartels) are clearly not behaving like everyone else. That doesn't mean all Muslims (and drug cartel members) are terrorists, murderers, etc. but enough of them are and it is accepted to make it a reasonable characteristic of the group.

    It isn't a radical Islamic movement moving into western culture. It's regular moderate Muslims moving to western cultures, and fitting in just fine, for the most part, but this is causing many in western cultures to fail to criticize extremist violence, in fear that we may be seen as intolerant to our new immigrants, whom we don't want to offend. Since western culture is pretty much infused with Christianity as a dominant religion, and we feel comfortable with it, we don't mind calling out Christian nuts over their extreme behavior, whenever and wherever it occurs, but we don't treat Muslims the same. We try to be understanding and tolerant, where no tolerance is called for.

    Terrorist behavior is not widespread, common, or accepted among Christians though.

    It is among Muslims.

    No I am saying we dont have to specialize or divide them down. We just need the message to stand that they are not going to force us to change our Laws due to their own failure in undersanding theirs.

    I have to disagree. That preacher in Fl who burned Korans didn't seem to mind offending Muslims. There are plenty of radical Christian groups working over time to offend Muslims. When radical Muslims act out, there are a lot of Americans willing to lump all Muslims together and claim Islam is a violent religion. I see it all the time. There have been attacks on US mosques by radical Christians. I don't see that your point is a valid one.

    I watch a lot of news programs and I have seen a lot of Muslims come out on these programs condeming the actions of these radicals. If you refuse to see the moderate Muslims standing up against the radical ones, that is your fault.

    What about Europe? What about Central and Southa America? Uhm.....what about Right here in the US? India holds the Most Population of Muslims. Canada has a Muslim Migration.

    In the US alone more and more Muslim Communties are being built up. So what do we call Muslims who wont acknoledge our Law?
