I am an American, and as such I am constantly exposed to the American style of media. In our nation, the major news networks have been corrupted by
large corporations and politicians. This allows those in power to lead the people astray, far from the principles set forth in the Constitution. This
is the mass of people you hold contention with. Now realize that these people are not making a concrete decision to kill innocents when they voted for
George W. Bush. Many did it based on religious, traditional, or party reasons.
Whatever the reason, you must understand that these people are not "bad". They have been co-opted by radical leaders. Getting to my posts title,
this relates directly to Islam. In the Middle East, there are corrupt leaders who mislead only for personal gain. They recruit people to give their
lives up in order to hurt innocent civilians, all in the name of the greater good. I have no hatred for the Muslims I see on TV yelling "death to
America", for I know that they have been mislead just like my own people.
When people realize that the fight is not between nations we will begin to make progress. The fight is between the righteous and just, and those who
are wicked and would use their power for evil.
