Your analogy then makes every single American complicit in the murder of one million unborn children every year, as those who do oppose the genocide, are ineffectually and unable to stop it.

That is true.

If you hide from the truth, it can't find you. I found the pictures, letters, and press releases on Muslims around the world gathering in support of America in the aftermath of 9/11, you did not because you failed to look for them.

Why would you have to go looking for the truth if it weren't hiding?

My point is exactly the opposite, my point being that because a portion of the German people pursued "absolute genocide", it did not mean that ALL German people pursues absolute genocide, anymore than all Muslims seek to murder non-Muslims.

No one said all German people pursued genocide, but they did ignore it.

If the Koran causes terrorism, then how does one explain the 1960s, when militant Islamic violence barely existed?

Funding.

That "elsewhere" takes you directly to the House of Saud, and the rise of Wahabbism.

So the new militancy if the fault of a guy that died before the turn of the last century?

Funny that you should offer up communism, a war that we won without having to frontally engage an enemy, but was defeated by the power of ideas. Same situation here.

Only in the sense that the consequence of those ideas was formation of a tangible military machine that could not be overcome.

papertyger is a perfect name for you.

"A boy named Sue" was already taken.

It isn't, it's out there for those not hiding from it to see; it's you hiding, not the truth.

Then where is Islam's the tangible military machine?

Christ died at the cross two eons ago, Christianity continues to grow.

"Funding."

Amazing, the leading scholars throughout the world missed that...

There is very little funding required to spread extremism, if funding was a requirement, the Bolsheviks would have never dethroned the Czar.
