    Would radical Muslims leave the U.S. alone if....

    I've heard people say that radical Muslims are only angry at us because our soldiers are in the Middle East disrupting their countries.

    Do you believe if we completely left all Muslim countries, the radical Muslims would make peace with the U.S. and not plan to terrorize us anymore (e.g. 9/11/2001)?

    No, I don't think they would make peace with the US if we left the region. They us the US occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan as an excuse to hate America. If we leave they will find another excuse or focus more on other insane rhetoric. The conflict lies within them, and it must be resolved within them.

    There'd definitely be a lesser propensity on the part of such individuals to commit violent acts, but I don't think the hardcore fundamentalists would leave us completely alone.

    I think the hardcore fundamentalists would have less support, but I don't think they would ever leave us alone.

    Nothing has worked with radical christians yet, so I don't know what would work with radical muslims.

    Do you think they dislike us because we support Israel?

    That's because there are no radical Christian theocracies that are bent on destroying another nation...

    Are you asking if we just packed up and left would radical Muslims immediately leave us alone? No, there would still be the issue of our support of Israel which is a very hot button issue for many Muslims. Now if you include pulling all support for Israel and becomign neutral inthe conflict, that's a different question.

    I'd still there would not be an immediate end to the anti-US rhetoric and feelings. Many radicals have been brainwashed by incessent propaganda and rhetoric to hate the US and our culture. And that won't go away overnight. And think there will always be a small sect of radicals in Islam who view Western society as decadent and evil and worthy of destruction. But those extremists would have a MUCH harder time bringing in new recruits if the general population didn't already have real political issues with US intervention and involvement in the region.

    As someone else in this thread pointed out, there was no conflict between Islam and the U.S. prior to us becoming heavily involved in the politics of the region.

    They cannot compare since no radical Christian group that I know of is advocating killing thousands of people and saying they want to take over the government.

    Did you miss the terrorists arrested in Michigan who planned to kill cops and bomb their funerals? Guess what, they where a radical christian group. That is only one example. Christians and muslims are nothing but two religions with very similar beliefs and the same drawing of radicals.
