    Are you kidding here? Really? you don't remember this type of thing just a few short weeks ago....

    Obama proclaims: 'We are not at war with Islam' - CNN.com
    We're not at war with Islam. Is it being truthful that bothers you guys?

    Now before you go down the wrong track here, the extremist profess being Muslim. That doesn't make the entire religion what we're fighting. Obama rightly makes the proper distinction.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    We are not at war with all of Islam. We are at war with a particular sub-division of Islam. There are people who point to their particular version of Islam as the sole motivation for fighting. People who can't understand the fact that fighting against extremist Islam isn't the same as fighting against all of Islam have problems.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    "We"? Are you a Muslim? It is Muslims who are 'mixing religion with politics' as instructed in the Koran. Look at any Muslim state and you'll see the mix for yourself.
    For example, I found it particularly disturbing when on the death of bin Laden, Obama appeared to indicate that the U.S. could do such things because we are one nation under God. I did not like that at all. And another example, it is said that George W Bush said God told him to go fight terrorists and get the Palestinians a state. While it may have been necessary to do those things, it is offensive AND DANGEROUS to bring God into the matter in such a political way.
    Use direct quotes whenever you can.

    Muslims are not the only people that do that.

    Pakistan and Israel are similar??? It must be the science. Or the Nobel Prizes. Or the democracy.

    Then quote a reliable source and we'll deal with it. Otherwise you're just blowing smoke.
