Skyfloating's intent is only apparent upon reading the entire thread from the beginning. I'm actually quite impressed at how it has been skillfully
manipulated from the start. If you can come out of this thread without rethinking this issue it would be quite damning. Reading this forces at least
me to carefully consider all sides. Perhaps this is Skyfloating's intent?
I've held to the idea that there are no innocents in this conflict. To ascribe guilt to one side is about as disingenuous as a person can be. For
instance to blame everything on the Jews and nothing on the radical element of the Muslim Faith is to bury your head in the sand.
Skyfloating simply stated that "Fanatical Muslims" are incompatible with the concept of a democratic society who's government is separate from all
religions and who's laws are based on basic human rights. The ideal many of us see as the best future for the world as a whole. That is hardly an
indictment of the entire Muslim Faith. It is the same as saying that Zionists are incompatible with peace in the Middle East. It is simply a fact.
We are all prisoners of our personal biases. A Muslim raised living under Sharia Law in Afghanistan for instance may see corporal punishment of their
Wife for learning to read as reasonable while a Muslim raised in the US may see his Wife's right to learn to read as a basic human right. Skyfloating
was very careful to limit his theory to only the Fanatics in the Muslim Faith.
What I find most interesting about this thread is the way it exposes those who are running on pure emotion without the brain engaged. At no point does
the OP attack moderate Muslims but it is assumed by some that they were attacked.
