We have spent many lives and years trying to bring freedom to parts of the Middle East without most of us not fully understanding that the terrorist fanatics believe they are doing the will of a "fanatic" God. It doesn't matter if he/she is a terrorist or a traditional Muslim. As has often been written and demonstrated, a traditional Muslim can end up DOING the will of a fanatic, fundamentalist, terrorist God.
I have always opined that the problem is not with the Muslim people as an ethnic group, but with their fanatic God. They need to be liberated from this God. He is their biggest enemy and Muslims have been lied to for almost a century and a half. (As quoted by a terrorist named Yousef, his current name and supposedly worked for both sides, who is now in our custody).
The wars we have been fighting recently are ideological wars. Using a largely mistaken interpretation of history, fanatical war lords and terrorists will never live peacefully with peace seeking people. We must be aware in our country, as they are in Europe, perhaps coming too late, that fundamentalists of any ilk, are not likely to be peace loving neighbors unless they have control.
Complete control and that is what we had all better be worried about. It should be no secret that the reason we have had so few terrorist acts in the U.S. since 9/11, is not only because of our increased security, but because our enemies are winning without committing overt acts of violence.
They have an ideology that is probably going to prove they can wait us out. Since they are all going to sit at Allah's right hand with a bevy of Virgins, (what happens to the women who are not virgins, or just women, is not mentioned by these fundamentalists) they can leave this terrestrial domain believing that their offspring, of which there are many, will complete the crusade in which they are now involved.
