    There is no "clash of civilizations" between Christianity and Islam. Those wars belong to the middle ages. There is a clash between decent people who simply want to live in peace, and fanatics who want to run the world.
    It is a clash of civilization, just between ideas of nationalism, these issues did not exist until after colonization. The colonial powers created most of the issues we have today.

    Re: Can Muslims ever condemn ISIS enough?

    Islamic terrorism grows from within Muslim communities, as such it's only natural that the most effective solution to it would not be an external solution but an internal one. Therefore only when Muslim communities in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Yemen, Lebanon, etc. would give a real fight to eradicate the radical elements within these communities will the problem have a chance of going away. As long as radical Imams are preaching for the causes and beliefs of ISIS, al-Qaeda or any other terror organization and are influencing the minds of the young, there are gonna be more recruits waiting to join in to the terror organizations' ranks.

    Unfortunately the problem ain't going anywhere in the near future, and it's only going to become bigger and bigger.

    However much any Muslim does so, it will never be enough. Nobody has a right to demand such condemnation. Can Catholics ever condemn Hitler enough?

    Until other Muslims finally say "Enough" and put aside tribal loyalties and refuse to harbor terrorists.

    Condemning is so easy but action speaks louder than words. Take action like what Jordan did.

    Jordan took action as a state because ISIS threatens it.
    If ISIS was another anti-Western-only terror organization, would Jordan even bother condemning it?
    From 2.5 months ago:
    Jordanian parliament honors Jerusalem terrorists - Israel News, Ynetnews
    Guess not.

    And really Jordan is not the only one to be blamed for doing that, how many nations, Muslim and non-Muslim, bother condemning terrorism that doesn't place their citizens as their targets?

    It isn't merely tribal loyalties, it is much bigger than that.
    How many Muslims are promoting radical opinions in the name of Islam?
    The willingness to see Shariah law as the formal law of the state - is it not radical?
    The willingness to see homosexuals executed or converts from Islam executed - are these not the opinions of a radical?
    So communities where such views are in the majority - are they not infested by radicalism? And if they are - isn't the most comfortable zone for a terror organization to grow in; a radicals-infested zone? So sure the majority of them aren't terrorists, they will probably never be terrorists, too - but as long as the majority or even just a very large portion of the people are supportive of radical world views it makes it very easy for the terrorists to operate and recruit.

    We should have bombed them to Hell as soon as it was clear Al Qaeda received Saudi funding.
