According to Bridgette Gabriel an international expert on Terrorism,
In 1492 Columbus' ships appeared off the coast of San Salvador. The Taino Indians greeted Columbus with unimaginable hospitality. Columbus reported to his queen: "So tractable, so peaceable, are these people, that I swear to your Majesties there is not in the world a better nation. They love their neighbors as themselves, and their discourse is ever sweet and gentle, and accompanied with a smile; and though it is true that they are naked, yet their manners are decorous and praiseworthy." Columbus soon lost sight of the generosity and kindness of the Taino people.

Libertygal, Why would you trust Bin Laden? If he is the mastermind of 911 don't you think he is just spouting retoric ?
According to Bridgette Gabriel an international expert on Terrorism, the Quran contradicts itself a lot and then explains why.. It has sayings that says if one passage contradicts another, it is the latter that Muslims should believe and it is the former that they should tell the rest of the world. She believes their religion teaches them to deceive people in this manner on purpose to cunningly bring about their agenda.
In her online video "Radical Islam’s Threat to America!" - blog.americancongressfortruth.com... , she says if you study their history you see they have killed more people around the world because they are non Muslims than any other people or country has ever done. ( also on my sig file)
She also believes that there are really no "Extreme Muslims" and that their religion teaches all Muslims that all nations must fall to Islam and according to the Quran they can use any means including killing and deception to get this done. This belief is at the core of the religion for every Muslim and they are to use deception to fool their enemies.
If there is any truth to this that makes them very dangerous and this should be studied more to determine real threats to national security.
Bridgette Gabriel comes from a Middle East country and she believes we in the West have not been taught the true history of Islam. To not at least consider her evidence is foolish.
About Fear - Fear can be a great thing. It can make you not touch the hot stove and be wary of strangers who seek to harm you.

Iraqi Tribes Turn on al Qaeda
September 22, 2006: Coalition forces in Iraq have suddenly received the manpower equivalent of three light infantry divisions. They did not suffer any repercussions in domestic politics as a result, and now have a huge edge over al-Qaeda in al-Anbar province. How did this happen? Tribal leaders in the largely Sunni province on the Syrian border got together and signed an agreement to raise a tribal force of 30,000 fighters to take on foreign fighters and terrorists.
These leaders have thrown in with the central government in Baghdad. This is a decisive blow to al Qaeda, which has been desperately trying to fight off an Iraqi government that is getting stronger by the week. Not only are the 30,000 fighters going to provide more manpower, but these tribal fighters know the province much better than American troops - or the foreign fighters fighting for al Qaeda. Also, this represents just over 80 percent of the tribes in al-Anbar province now backing the government.
