  •  You completely misrepresented his post. (4.00)
    He didn't 'deny' fundamentalist Muslims at all.  He simply stated that the majority of Muslims around the world are not fundamentalists, or militant.  You chose to twist his words around in a way that would make Sean Hannity proud.

    "I don't really care how many there are because there are too many."

    Yes, yes.  I'm sure Bush felt the same way when he ordered a dozen missiles to be fired into a small house in Pakistan, one filled with (in his mind) 'too many' terrorists.  That the house turned out to contain 5 women, 3 children, and a few more men, none of them terrorists, didn't matter to Bush.  

    Attitudes like yours are why we're fighting wars on nouns.

    •  What in the world are you talking about? (none)
      You are making more than enough rhetorical twists of your own to win the very same Hannity prize. Where did I write in this short exchange that the majority of Muslims were militant? I wrote that a certain amount are.

      As for the second part, you really need to relax. I don't support Bush's policies, and never have. Acts of agression against innocent civilians is disgusting no matter who is perpertrating them.

      Militant fundamentalists, however, are a threat to innocent US civilians, and there are far too many of them.

      •  Fundamentalists are a threat to... (none)
        more people than "innocent US civilans".  

        It's not just about us.

        •  Unfortunately, (none)
          the Muslim fundamentalists felt the need to pull off 9/11. All bets are off on who I should or would feel more sympathetic for.

          Especially when it comes to these Muslim fundamentalists suicide attacks on people of their own faith, such as the Iraqis attempting to join their police force, or the many civilian gatherings they've targetted.

          There is a difference... the desire of the Muslim fundamentalists is death and destruction in preservation of their religion.

          The Bush fundamentalist apparently wants to transform the middle east into a "democracy. I find it stupid, but at least he hasn't started bombing people in his own country.

          That is a significant difference.

          •  Do not equate Muslim fundamentalists... (none)
            with Muslims.

            Muslim fundamentalists aren't trying to preserve Islam.  They are trying to preserve a perversion of it - one that enables them to rule those around them.

            No different from our domestic fundamentalists.  You know - the ones who bomb abortion clinics.  Or...do those not count as attacks on people of their own faith?

            •  Do you have a tally of the amount (none)
              of abortion clinic bombings which have occured recently? Have any of them killed 60-100 people at a time?

              Don't be a terrorist sympathizer, the comparisons will not be flattering.
