    Yes thank God were getting away from Israel the only democracy in the region. The only place people of any faith can worship without being beheaded. Try going anywhere in Palestine and say that you've converted to Buddhism and see how long you live.

    In a USA Today interview in 1997, Islamic radicals in Egypt expressed their views: “They cite figures on the divorce rate in the United States. They point to crime and drug use. They talk about America’s preoccupation with sex. ‘You will never find these things where true Islam exists,’ argues Ziad Ali, 34. ‘Islam is the only answer, not Christianity, not Judaism, not Buddha. Without it, America is going to hell.’ He points to a young Muslim woman . . . who is fully clothed from head to toe and even wearing gloves. . . . . ‘That is how a woman must dress, not the way they dress in America, in Britain,’ Ali says. ‘In America, your women dress like harlots. They have no dignity. We want to change that here in Egypt so our harlots don’t go to hell.’”
    For Daniel Pipes, scholar and founder of the Middle East Forum (MEF), it boils down to one simple reason: Islamists hate America because “they believe Muslims should be in charge” and they, simply, “are not.”
    The resentment, according to scholar, while most “acute” for fundamentalists is actually widespread even among Arab seculars.
    Also Arab nationalism has “quickly morphed into an Islamist thing.”
    “It’s the same hatred.”
    “When something goes wrong it’s always – even when it comes to a secular Arab mentality – an Israel-U.S. ‘conspiracy.’”
    Ibrahim, a Coptic Christian whose parents immigrated to the U.S. from Egypt, also explained that while not every secular Muslim in the Middle East will rise up in violence, they consider themselves above all to be Arab nationalists, thus will collectively turn a blind eye to the carnage being leveled by their more radical counterparts.

    Not sure of your point.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    The group originated as Jama'at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad in 1999, which pledged allegiance to al-Qaeda in 2004. The group participated in the Iraqi insurgency, which had followed the March 2003 invasion of Iraq. In January 2006, it joined other Sunni insurgent groups to form the Mujahideen Shura Council, which in October 2006 proclaimed the formation of the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI).

    ISIS took over a significant portion of Iraq when Obama lost the peace.

    Why in the hell did you even quote me, if your going to ignore the data in it to perpetuate your failed conservative lies. There has been no peace, and no stability in Iraq since March of 2003. And as documented, the Islamic State was formed in Iraq during the middle of the decides second term, 2006. You just failed colossally.

    Americans stationed over seas have generally been increasingly well protected since the 1970s, if I understand it correctly. Of course, instead of only having two local police officers in front of the resident's door, you can add two or three marines and harden various parts of the house. And, as I said, you can stop the target's jogging.

    Ah, victim shaming I see.

    No, see Obama said Iraq was peaceful and stable, and ISIS was the JV team.

    He lost the peace for votes, and now we have ISIS attacks in the US.
