"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Two Way Street

The BBC quotes an anonymous pamphlet, that appears to have been distributed to justify the London bombings:
"The United Kingdom is an ally of the United States, and hence is part and parcel of the worst front of aggression the Muslims are facing in the present time. They are even worse than Pharaoh in his war against Moses."

"Every British citizen who voted for the members of Parliament who supported the war in Iraq should be regarded as an attacker or at least an assistant."
Just suppose that the west adopted the same thinking... "any Muslim who does not turn over these jihadis should be regarded as a terrorist or at least an assistant".

I don't suppose that will actually happen, but it would likely be very unpleasant for the terrorists. It would mean we could send their parents to Guantanamo for a few years even after the man himself had died. It would mean that western soldiers could kill a terrorist's entire family in retaliation. It would mean Holy War on a scale that would send the entire world back to the stone age, and result in the likely end of Islam thru attrition and nuclear fire.

Control your passions guys - they either fade shortly, or they control you if you permit it. THINK before you speak or write. Maybe try actually reading the Quran - all of it. Allah instructed Mohammed, Pbuh, that we: Jews, Christians and Muslims, should reason together and try to understand our differences. NOT that we should kill each other. It's our and your individual behavior that will determine heaven or hell, not what is done by national leaders.
