What scares me is that the Islamists are REALLY pushing for a religeous war.
They do not seeem to understand that IF they get their wish, and IF they get a "Crusade", it will likely result in Islam being wiped off the face of the planet save for a very few very small communities.
If it happens, a bunch of people on BOTH sides who do not need it will be slaughtered, because we really cannot afford to spend time sorting them out.
The Moderate Muslims had better get a clue fast and bring their errant "brothers" to heel!
I consider Wahabism to be a nihilistic death-cult and it may bring down the whole thing.

You did hear why there are no Arabs on Star Trek, didn't you?
It takes place in the future, and we haven't played cowboys and Arabs yet.
It striked me as much like those (thankfully few and isolated) blacks who try to provoke a race war in America.
Don't they realize what would happen to their side if they succeded in getting the war they want?
