    I wonder how people feel about the recent human rights violations in Egypt, a moderate Islamic society or so I am told.

    How about sharia patrols in London that are potentially responsible for harming an American student from Florida?

    Crime. Not war.

    Not all war is shots fired. Sometimes it can be a Cold War, or a culture war.

    Sure. But it's not an explicit requirement of their faith, as it is for Islam.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Is the West at war with Islam?[W:118]The topic of the OP is :Is the West at war with Islam?

    That has nothing to do with the KKK, Robert Byrd or Ronald Reagan or anything dealing with those subjects.

    Though the thread seems to be back on topic, please let us resist the temptation to pick up those discussion again, and stick to the topic of the thread. Thread bans are possible if not.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Thanks...and which is why I used the terminolgy (I GUESS with the exception of) in the original post...

    He was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, with outrage ensuing over Black's former membership with the Ku Klux Klan. Black served on the court for 34 years, known for his ardent support of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. (I guess with the exception of black America) (emphasis added- USV)
    He died on September 25, 1971.

    Something akin to this London cab driver?

    A devout Arab Muslim entered a cab in London. He curtly asked the cabbie to turn off the radio because as decreed by his religious teaching, he must not listen to music because in the time of the prophet there was no music, especially Western music which is the music of the infidel.

    The cab driver politely switched off the radio, stopped the cab and opened the door.
    The Arab Muslim asked him, "What are you doing? "

    The cabbie answered, "In the time of the prophet there were no taxis, so piss off and wait for a camel!"
