    You do realize that there is a middle ground between those two options, don't you?
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Yes, it's called indifference, which is unacceptable.

    You are not serious right?

    Do Americans 'love' or 'hate' every country in the world? Put them in those two categories?

    I don't know about you but i enjoyed a day off work and lazed around during those protests.

    The Muslims speak the language, know the customs, can blend in and infiltrate. That's an advantage the West doesn't have.
    But we do not have the weapons, technology or will power.

    The same reason why Christians everywhere don't work together to destroy Christian extremism. Most don't care to do anything because it doesn't directly affect them.

    How would you feel if someone told you they were indifferent to murder? Or racism?

    Christians defeat Christian extremism all the time. Do Christians tolerate the KKK just because they're fellow Christians? Did Timothy McVeigh get a free pass because he was a Christian? No!

    Do Pakistani's tolerate Taliban? No they fight them constantly. Did the Iraqi people allow Al-Qaeda to gain control of the regions after Saddam's fall? No they fought them off and still do.

    Despite what you want to believe. Muslims fight Muslims all the time and there is no wide acceptance of radicals in the Muslim community. The great majority of Muslims are normal people that just want to live peaceful and prosperous lives.

    Your idea that if radicals exist the moderates must either actively annihilate them or be labeled supporters of radicalism is ludicrous.
