You may be right. Maybe I'm just a simple person who is not as sophisticated as you are. Perhaps I'm so thick I am incapable of reading through the
lines and unraveling the big conspiracy.
Because all I can do is read what radical jihadists say they believe and why, listen to what they say they want to do and then judge their
motivations, intent etc...by their actions.
You imply that I'm brain washed b/c I assert that radical islamics see the world divided between them and kafirs (non belivers). Moreover, that they
wish to do us harm.
I've provided ample documentation for my views, as evidenced by previous posts and the inclussion of links (including the following).
Now, are all of these radical islamic clerics on the US payroll as part of the big conspiracy? Or perhaps they don't mean what they say....or perhaps
they've been taken out of context. I don't have perfect knowledge, I can only judge based on my powers of deduction, reason and observation.
Perhaps you should expose yourself to more information before you make statements about how simple the rest of us are and can respond based on the
body of evidence I've provided that counters your big conspiracy view.
Please take the time to refute the validity of my underlying statements and assumptions based on their merits. While you're at it, perhaps you'd
like to refute the comments of some of the radical jihadists and clerics (links provided below) that support my world view. Perhaps you're
sophisticated enough to realize what they "really mean" and can spell it out for the rest of us.

Contemporary Islamist Ideology Authorizing Genocidal Murder
Islamism, also called "radical Islam" or "fundamentalist Islam," sets Jihad - holy war against infidels – as the single most important religious
duty of Islam. It differs from mainstream Islam in its understanding of th obligation of Jihad and of how it should be carried out.
Mainstream Islam restricts the religious duty of Jihad in various ways. First, according to mainstream Islam, not all infidels are to be fought
against or killed. Infidels who live under Muslim rule as dhimmi, that is, who have accepted the protection of Islam and the conditions imposed upon
them by Islamic law, are not to be killed. Further, most mainstream Muslim jurists maintain that even when Jihad is being fought, some infidels within
the enemy camp, such as women, children, the elderly, and the disabled, should be spared. According to most Muslim jurists, certain types of arms or
methods of warfare must not be used – for example, poisoned arrows and poisoning the enemy's wells – which could be construed as a basis for
prohibiting chemical and biological warfare.
Second, in mainstream Islam, Jihad is usually construed as the collective duty of the Muslim community as a whole (fard kifaya ), rather than as an
individual duty. That is, the Muslim ruler determines when and how to engage in it or to desist from it. It is not an individual religious duty, such
as prayer or fasting, to be discharged by every Muslim (fard 'ayn). Only when the infidels invade the lands of Islam does Jihad become an individual
Contemporary Islamism, however, holds that Islam is now under attack, and therefore Jihad is now a war of defense, and as such has become not only a
collective duty but an individual duty without restrictions or limitations. That is, to the Islamists, Jihad is a total, all-encompassing duty to be
carried out by all Muslims – men and women, young and old. All infidels, without exception, are to be fought and annihilated, and no weapons or types
of warfare are barred. Furthermore, according to them, current Muslim rulers allied with the West are considered apostates and infidels.
One major ideological influence in Islamist thought was Sayyid Qutb. Qutb, an Egyptian, was the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood movement. He was
convicted of treason for plotting to assassinate Egyptian president Gamal Abd Al-Nasser and was executed in 1966. He wrote extensively on a wide range
of Islamic issues. According to Qutb, "There are two parties in all the world: the Party of Allah and the Party of Satan – the Party of Allah which
stands under the banner of Allah and bears his insignia, and the Party of Satan, which includes every community, group, race, and individual that does
not stand under the banner of Allah." 
This article will examine contemporary Islamist sources advocating this approach to non-Muslims.
