OK, so the first major act of Islamic terror directly effecting only Americans would be what?



The US embassy takeover? Does this mean I get to blame Islamic terror on Jimmy Carter?

BTW: Brewer, I wouldn't buy into this self loathing PC crap that just calls them terrorists. Refer to them for what they are which is Muslim terrorists. Most of the media is too chicken to admist that Islam is responsible for these peoples actions and should be called on it. The supposed "Religion of peace" has done little to stop it's members from cutting people's heads off and blowing up trains, buses, and planes.

You can rest assured that if a Jew, Christian, or Buddhist were to kills innocents in the name of their faith that the outcry from their own people would be swift. All we hear from the Muslim community is excuses and rationalization

You're gonna have to be more specific than that-- was he Jewish, Christian, or Buddhist?

And, hey, what's up with putting Buddhists in this category? If they took a life wouldn't their membership status be in jeopardy?

The IRA terrorists were Catholic.

The King David terrorists were Jewish.

The 9/11 terrorists were Muslim.

The 1993 terrorists in India were Hindi.


Those terrorists had wide support for their actions among their own faith.

I'm gonna have to call "shenanigans" on this one. I think it is safe to say that I can point to dozens of abominable acts done in the name of almost any religion you care to name. I'd be REAL careful about painting all people of a particular faith with the "terrorist" brush.

If I were to pick a Catholic off the street in NYC or Chicago and ask them " Do you think it was a good idea for the IRA to kill innocent civilians?' I would guess that probably 19 out of 20 would say no. (Just a guess)

You must not know a lot of Jews if you think that most people supported the King David hotel bombing.

Now, let's say you stopped a person on the street of Riyahd and ask them if it's ok to blow up a bus in Tel Aviv full of women and children

Care to guess what their response would be?

But only one of these groups attacked the USA and are indiscriminantly killing civilians all over the world for no reason.

So right now my beef is with them since they are trying to kill me and my family.

This is the problem with this kind of Logic - The other side says exactly the same thing!

Let's have peace on earth as soon as we blow the enemy to smithereans!

Re: Shook Hands with John Edwards This noon...............

the 'religion of peace' seems to be leading the body count of late.....
the moniker of Islam should be changed to 'The religion of piece' since its adherants would like to see all non believers (infidels!) in at least two 'pieces'...

Not to mention, just like Retire@40 indicated, these people would love nothing more than to see you and your family dead. Just keep that in mind.

Every time you start to forget who these people are what they want to do I suggest you watch the video of the planes going into the towers or perhaps sit back and watch the video of Nick Berg's passing

Arabs and Muslims are two overlapping groups. Some Arabs are not Muslims, and some Muslims are not Arabs. Do you personally know anyone from Lebanon? I do. Some of the best people I've ever met, and 100% pro American (not that that's automatically an indicator of goodness). Several of them have become US citizens. They're doctors, engineers, and scientists. They have family in Lebanon right now, and are very frightened by what's going on.

A broad-brush of an entire segment of humanity as sub human -- which is what you're trying to do -- is about as ignorant as it gets. What do you want? Revive the Crusades? Nuke em? Have a nice day, buddy.

Actually, I think you're getting confused. Most of the pro-American Lebanese are not Arab, they are Maronite or Assyrian, and yes I do know some of them. You want to talk about reviving the crusades! Go read what they think of their countrymen. Do a search on Shatila and Sabra and get back to me when you're done.

You know what? I was going to answer you. But quite frankly it's not worth the trouble. Go play with your guns (and don't hurt yourself!).

Those are different people than the average person on the street of Riyadh. You're changing the subject.
