    if we stop our violence, the violence against us will stop rather frightening. Because it won't. It's a lovely thought, but the world just isn't as rational as some would like to believe. And where will that leave the people who believe it, once it doesn't come true? In the neocon camp, I suspect.

    And if I were Muslim, I suspect I'd take offense at the suggestion that these evil shitholes are good-Muslims-pushed-to-the-brink-by-misguided-imperialistic-policies, like any Muslim might turn into a ravening butcher if angered. Most of 'em, y'know, wouldn't.

    Evil shitholes will find some grudge--any grudge, justified or not--to excuse their brutality in their own deluded minds. I feel bad for Muslims, because for various historical/political/theological reasons, a certain type of deluded fuckhead wants to exploit Islam to excuse their personal perversions.

    God knows (ha!) that other types of dangerous fuckheads seem drawn to Judaism and Christianity, but the Muslim world's getting saddled with the worst at the moment.
