    Now what do you know of Islam that Muslims don't even know? Does this "knowledge" include your own ignorant, bigoted perspective of Islam?
    Shoosh!! Don't ask, don't tell. It's sekrit!!

    To get a handle on everything that's going down, you need to go back further than 2 decades. Aggressive interventionist policy on the part of the West in the affairs of ME countries has been going on for much much longer than 20 years.

    Silly, silly man. None of that matters, because it didn't affect US!

    Ok, lets see....and going to be extremely polite with my *words*

    What constitutes *radical* Islam? Is it the desire to declare jihad on unbelievers? To eliminate Israel? To destroy the US? To spread Islam around the world?

    Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
    With the cross of Jesus going on before.
    Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
    Forward into battle see His banners go!


    I'm just saying . . . .

    What consititutes a "radical" Christian?

    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.

    I don't have to know a great deal about Islam to know they are committing outrageous killings all over the world, just as I didn't need to study Fascism, Nazism, or the belief system of the KKK to get an understanding of how evil people can be. What i do know is that they have great ambitions and will commit any atrocities, against other Muslims as well, in order to achieve those ambitions. It is more like a backward seventh century cult than any serious religion that hopes to better the human condition, or offer insights into the deeper questions of life.

    You said this.

    "The question is flawed in that you are both at the same time. Asking 'first' implies that one comes before the other".
    Would you give up your claimed Islamic religion before you gave up your American citizenship?

    If you would like to test that hypothesis, pick an Evangelical church at random and try to preach about how right it is to murder a bunch of elementary schoolers in the name of stopping *insert name*.

    You can time how long it takes for them to drag you out of the pulpit and hand you over to the police.

    Then why bother mentioning it?

    Do you expect people to debate this point?

    Have you always had this flair for pointing out the bleeding obvious?
