  •  You fail to undersatnd the Islamist (6+ / 0-)

    They are manipulated.  Read the history of the Muslim Brotherhood which in it's modern form was founded in the late 1920's.  They want to create a modern caliphate though jihad.  

    This all started long before the Bushes were born - cheap clothes - cheap oil (not sure where you buy you gas) - and not sure what juicy steak has to do with it - maybe you meant some nice Canadian Bacon.

    The blame all their ills on the Jews and us Western is a good explanation:

    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
    So if you understand Islamic extremism, you understand that they are to be treated like Nazi's or any other extreme group - you can't negotiate with them - you fight them - you protect yourself from them and then you try to influence minds and behavior.

    The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only legitimate object of good government. - Thomas Jefferson
