Well, that's true. However, I have often wondered what morality originally derived from. Some people claim that people have a natural proclivity to be moral, I don't necessarily think that is empirically true.

But my approach is to let the fanatics play it out amongst themselves.
While they fight their childish and highly immature wars I am to do my best in acknowledging foreign belief-systems in my private sphere.

You know, the more I think about it, it's almost an "unholy war" at this point, and heres why. Although many of the western peoples involved have religions, alot of them dont, and alot them dont practice the religion much or think much of it, or hold it close to them. So one could say it is a war between the Radical Muslims and the NON-BELIEVERS.. hahaha .. but what sucks is, us Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, and Pagans all get lumped into the same "enemy" column as the non-believers.
So really it is Radical Islam versus ALL if you really get down to it..
