I've seen more innocent heads sawed off with dull knives by 6th century barbarians than I could have dreamed of in my worst nightmare.
And did you see the other Muslims heading of to Iraq to kill those terrorists?

And Ive heard just about squat from your "peaceful people who largely agree with (me)".
Have you listened? There aren't many Albanians, but I've heard them. (Of course I'm married to them... I've heard them over, and over, and over ;) )

So listen, let me introduce you to some of my Muslim friends.

Listen: Albania has been a steadfast supporter of U.S. policy in Iraq, and one of only four nations to contribute troops to the combat phase of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Listen:Only in the USA itself, in Albania, and in UN administered Kosovo do citizens feel the world is a safer place since the recent military action (48%, 64% and 59% respectively).

Listen: For instance our traditional ally, Albania, is sending a contingency of 70 troops. Poland is anteing 200 troops and Romania, not to be outdone by a bunch of Poles, is raising the 200 by 78 more.

Listen: Albanian Prime Minister Fatos Nano stated that Albania was considering increasing its military contingent in Iraq, in view of Spain's decision to pull its 1,300 troops out of the country. Albania's troops are serving in Mosul in northern Iraq, under U.S. command.

Listen:Albania, a predominantly Muslim country, was one of the most vocal backers of the U.S.-led war in Iraq.

Seventy Albanian soldiers, here training at Zallherr military base, will be postwar peacekeepers. "We are proud to stand side-by-side with our allies in the fight to end the reign of terror in Baghdad," Prime Minister Fatos Nano said.

Albania has done their part, and done it when they didn't have to. They stepped up to the plate, and I'm tired of seeing people rail against all Muslims when Albania is there proving them wrong. I don't really blame people for never having heard of Albania, but how about a pat on the back for Albania... that's all I'm asking. They stuck their neck out for us.

I pray you are right. And, I hope the Albanians are not an aberation in the muslim world, but the terror around the world and the accompanying silence of your "moderate" muslims yields me frail hope.
