    If you ever go to the National Zoo, Mei Xiang will jump over the fence and kick your ass for that.

    that'S enough for me. ;)

    but yes, you are probably right, just wanted oman to present some proof to his claims. Now we can discuss the reasons. And as others have already stated, the numbers are the biggest. Percentage-wise more Muslims live in Western Europe than in the USA. On the other hand you can argue, that this SHOULDN'T be a reason....


    and I agree. :(

    good article, but i don't quite agree with the following:
    the lack of honest debate is actually more because of intimedation from extremists, which brings us back to the luck element mentioned a bit earlier in the article. quite a few people who openenly critisised islam where murdered or otherwise intimedated. it is much easier to have an honest open debate when the majority of muslims are well educated in the first place...

    I would have simply cited the murder of Vincent Van Gogh by that Arab kid in Paris.

    So if the president -- the type of president you'd like to have dinner with -- tells you not to hate muslims, you won't. But if he doesn't talk about it, then you hate muslims. That doesn't sound like we're a "good people". It sounds like our default position is religious hatred.

    Might want to check the batteries in your sarcasm meter, Matt. ;)






    It wasn't in Paris, either.

    In case you didn't get the memo, the 'default position' predated the 9/11 attacks and the quagmire in Iraq.
