In my view, this only proves that MOST Muslims, even those considered "moderate", have similar twisted views of their world around them. Of course;
that addoring crowd of 5000 are a tiny minority!!
While we may not agree with it, we're talking about people's religious beliefs. That is a very touchy subject. Views like that are what starts
wars.. nevermind tick off those Muslims who are *not* of that ilk.
The West's views are twisted, Islam's views are twisted... Everyone is twisted to their own personal ends.
To automatically denounce them because our views are twisted in another direction is just as wrong, and in fact is no different
than the 'bad
guys' we're trying to 'fix' or 'root out'.

I agree that we all need to set aside our personal sentiments and learn. I do not see any other way of reaching any sort of compromise with *anyone*
without first learning their language/way of thinking -- in this case, their religion.
If we do not *understand* the problem as best as we can, then we have no chance of change.
