So half of the terrorists were Arabs, not Chechen Seperatists. Gee, who knew?
Terrorism = Muslims
They recognize no innocents, none of them should be recognized as such. There is no such thing as a good Muslim. They are an evil death cult that should be erased from the earth.

"Terrorism = Muslims" I don't really agree with you on this. Having lived in the Middle East for a good portion of my life, I had the good fortune to meet a number of Muslims that were just as interested in seeing the terrorism of their so called "brothers" halted post haste. A sad truth in today's world is that most of the active terrorism is carried out by those raised in a Muslim culture. This is backfiring. The goals of the terrorists to see the world purged of the non-Islamic heathens and infidels are being torn to shreds every time they declare their faith beside the burning remains of their victims. Obviously this is an image familiar to all of us, one that has been burned into our memories. The backlash this is having on the less warlike followers of the Islamic faith is staggering. Not only do they suffer physical, emotional and mental abuse but the residual hatred of anyone even suspected of being Muslim has caused many to become pariahs. What's worse is the fact that those of Arab descent have been targetted by this hatred, regardless of their faith. "Islam" and "Arab" have become synonomous in the minds of many people. "They recognize no innocents, none of them should be recognized as such. There is no such thing as a good Muslim. They are an evil death cult that should be erased from the earth." This is the exact sort of nonsense that has driven so many of the terrorists to attack us all across the world. They buy into party lines that sound so similar to this, and as a result they work themselves into a zealous frenzy and end up taking the lives of those who had never even considered that they may be enemies. The leaders of terrorist organizations say very similar things about us, and look what it has led them to do. By no means am I a pacifist. I am anything but. I hate the very idea of pacifism, because it represents an unwillingness to take action when action is required. I am incredibly supportive of the idea of removing filth like terrorists from the Earth in a permanent manner. The only way to ensure our safety and survival is to destroy those who would destroy us. I do not, however, support the spread of fallacies such as the ones I am responding to now. If you take nothing else away from my rant, at least take away the idea that maybe not all Muslims are terrorists. If you at least stop and consider the possibility for five minutes, then I've accomplished a lot more than I ever expected to.
