I'm sorry Heff, but you are mistaken. Just as all the politicians are mistaken.
Islam is a snake that enters a rabbit's den to keep warm in the winter. The snake takes advantage of the friendly rabbit's warm home until spring when it's warm outside. Then it eats the rabbit.
You say you want to cut through the crap??
Well here you go; the truth about Islam:

It's not just Islam that's radicalized.
In Ireland, religious radicals fight against British oppression in the name of factions of Christianity.
In South Africa, Nelson Mandela bombed people in malls before he went to prison. In all the press regarding his incarceration and subsequent political rock star treatment, people forget that while he was a political prisoner, he was also extremely violent before he went to prison. He was head of the ANC, a group that terrorised people all over South Africa.
All over Africa, gangs of Government sponsored thugs often use religion as the basis for their wars.
In Israel, Israeli Jews attack Palestinians and perform horrific acts against their own people in the name of religious liberty.
Many, many religions have been used to justify some of the most horrific acts in human history, It's not just Islam that's the scourge - it's RELIGION.
About the only religions that can claim to be truly peaceful are Rastafarianism and Buddhism.

They are not fighting for freedom.
They are fighting to impose their theocratic religious system on all the rest of the world.
If you think they are fighting for freedom, you are deluded. Or do you want to be liberated into becoming a good little Muslim?

Agreed. And it's really bothersome to hear those blaming the peaceful Muslims for all of this. They are blamed because they aren't "stopping it" - when it has nothing to do with them.

So I ask you again. If we are at war with extreme Islam, then why do Mecca and Medina still stand? Why do we still ally ourselves and sell arms to Saudi Arabia? The answer is quite clear to me. We are not at war with radical Islam at all. Nor is it at war with us. We're just seeing the pawns moving in a much bigger game and ignoring the real power pieces on the chessboard.

Islamofascists hate us and want to kill us. If Medina and Mecca were full of our enemies we would take them out. We are trying very hard to attack the bad guys and leave the good, or at least neutral, guys alone.
why would any rational person shoot up a cartoon factory? We're not dealing with rational people.
sects of Islam interpret and teach that their koran dictates the murder of 'enemies of islam', as defined by their imams. as an added bonus they get a free pass into paradise if they die in such attacks.
doesn't help that so much of that part of the world is empty and underdeveloped with few career or recreation opportunities for young adults.
an empty and unappealing material existence can be made tantalizing with some religious mysticism, especially when indoctrinated into kids starting at a young age.
please don't buy into this concept of hidden powers orchestrating a false war on ______ (fill in blank) to keep the peasants occupied. this is real-world serious stuff.
