The KKK were Christian freaks trying to rule the world for whites and God and they were eventually so stigmatized they are now a joke. A bad joke but a joke non-the-less.
This will eventually happen to the extremists of islam.
You see, Islam is not the enemy. Religion in general is not the enemy. (Being a spiritual anarchist i am shocked that I actually said that)
Extremism is the enemy. Most Muslims don't want to strap on bombs and blow up the infidels. Only the extremists want that.
Just as the extremist KKK Christians were eventually sent off to the fringe lunatic area, the extremist Muslims will eventually be sent there as well.
In todays society extremist christainity is a joke. Extemist Islam will eventually become the same.
We just have a tough road to get there.
Just my thoughts,

I think it is important that you keep in mind that the current war, nor do I believe any future outbreaks of war, are against Islam, but rather against the ideals and actions of radical Islam. The fundamental beliefs of the two religons are vastly different and are too lengthy to be explained in detail here. However to fully understand what this war is about, it is important to understand the beliefs of those who oppose you. I suggest this article: Islam
Especially 2.1: The Six Articles or Pillars of Islam and 2.2: The tenets of Islam.
