    Islamic militants, radicals, extremists, al-Qaida, fundamentalists, the Muslim Brotherhood, jihadists, or whatever is the PC term for today are actually "good" Muslims, not bad ones. The "radicals" haven't corrupted Islam, hijacked their religion, nor interpreted it incorrectly, and therefore they aren't radicals or extremists!

    Islam isn't a peaceful religion; it is a declaration of war against all mankind. While "bad" Muslims can be moderate, peaceful or "not-Muslim-enough", these people have NO influence because even their “holy” (cough-cough) Koran tells "good" Muslims to KILL them!!

    I wish that our news organizations would answer that question instead of giving us the same 'ole terms like "radical" and "extremists" when all the evidence points that they are actually being "good" muslims...not BAD ones!!

    WAKE UP!!!

    I get what youre saying Infidel, but if being a good ANYTHING means blowing others up, torturing,maiming and inflicting other horrors on people, I think that set of tenets outweighs any good that could be gleaned from its original intent. I dont believe ANY God would want ANY of us to murder in His name . There are those that would corrupt the word of ANY holy book by misguided interpretation .
