    if you believe the West is equal with followers of al Qaeda. I believe the West (and, for that matter, most of the rest of the world) is on a far higher level than al Qaeda. If every member of al Qaeda dropped dead today, it would be a cause for celebration.

    •  That level of thinking is not much different (0+ / 0-)

      Many around the would celebrate if every member of the GOP and right-wing in the US dropped dead.

      You are missing the point entirely however. To think that al Qeada are subhuman is precisely the wrong lesson to learn from extremists. And exactly how things like genocide can occur.

      There is nothing inherently "higher" about democratic, educated, industrial, or "Christian" nation. As genocide has occurred at the hands of such nations as well. It isn't so much an issue of equvlancy as it is recognition the capacity for such things is present in most people if the circumstances are present.
