All we have to do is tell the rest of the world's Muslims (and everyone else) 1. that how we treat them, or anyone else, won't be based on what they believe but on how they act on the basis of that belief, 2. that they can practice their Islam to their heart's contentment as long as they don't attack us, 3. that the best way they can keep themselves safe (from us) is to disavow the actions of bin Ladin and associates and to help us help them shuffle off these mortal coils and 4. if they do choose to attack us for religious or other reasons, we will be crawling down their throats strictly from a practical standpoint.
This attitude will take as long to impose on Muslims as it will to make peasants order their lives by the clock, especially since they will always find reasons for doubting our resolve. Lord, look at our intellectuals!

Yes, but in the case of the clock, the better they got, the more everyone wanted to use them.
