      using my knowledge of history and FACTS, and  then pulling that together to come to a logical conclusion is an excuse?  

      Your analysis left out half the information.  That should worry you if you're going to make a good argument.  Jewish settlers and Buddhist terrorists are not as bad as Muslim terrorists and if Muslims are oppressed they must act like Gandhi, while everyone else gets a pass for violence?

      If that's apologizing, I'll take that over your frantic theatrics any day.

      I am not so overtaken by fear of the unknown that the only way I can alleviate it is by frothing at the mouth in condemnation of everything.  That's what right wingers do.  Right wingers think if they conquer every Muslim country and put their people under the bayonet, then they can have their "security."  Too bad it doesn't exist.

      Humans will be cruel to other humans for the foreseeable future, so there is nothing to necessarily fear.  The only way to combat it is to UNDERSTAND it, and you're not going to do that by conveniently leaving out context and contradictions.  Your argument is invalid and useless for anyone that wants to deal with reality the way it is.
