On the pope

Link:"In Iraq, the main Sunni party warned the pope's comments could lead to violence between Muslims and Christians. The pope "should not be lured into returning to the Crusades," the Sunni Iraqi Islamic Party said in a statement."

The muslim leaders constantly speak in veiled threats. They use our own political correctness against us, while preaching hate and intolerance. Could lead to violence!?!? From whom would the violence come and to whom would it be directed.

From the same article, "Two churches in the West Bank were hit by firebombs Saturday, and a group claiming responsibility said it was protesting Benedict's words."

If you have been following Dilbert's posts on the middle east (here and here), I think you will understand how serious this problem is and also how fruitless it is to engage religious fanatics.

Do you welcome the coming war or are you afraid?

Why is no one saying why we went on crusades. Could it be to fight off the muslim hordes who invaded all away across North Africa to Spain and coverting Christians and other s to Islam By conquest( convert or die).

political correctness is my guess.

Honestly, i don't care who started the cursades and arguing over that point or over who performed the most inhuman acts back then just gives them an advantage in the arguement.

All i care about is the here and now, I want to know what stops us from pointing out that there are some groups of people in the muslim world who are evil and should be killed. My guess would be political correctness, agian.
