I think that’s going to be next on my reading list.

My sister was in the Air Force at the time when GW went after Saddam. While he was getting shredded for going after him because it would be perceived as making the US look weak cause he had to finish up what his father didn’t do, a friend of hers who was more familiar with muslim culture said that they wouldn’t see it that way.

In muslim culture, that kind of behavior is EXPECTED. If someone offends your family, you are expected to take revenge, even if it’s another generation. So in muslim eyes, he actually EARNED respect, because he was doing what they thought should be done, protecting family honor.

No, not the same god at all.
