Corrupted and degraded, who corrupted people to take such degrading actions as flying an aeroplane into a building? If action is taken which turns a person around from being part of such actions to being part of preventing them I am all for it.
How can we lead by example when we live in a world that see's such as a weakness?
We have people on both sides who think their way is their Gods way, one crowd is relying on humanity to prevail and the other is using the threat of their might to keeps everyone in line.
If we do not want to live by the Law of Islam and others want to make us what do we do? Who has an answer?
We have extremes on both sides, Bush gets slammed for using the word Crusade, but others can keep using the word Jihad, where is the difference? The difference I see is that Jihad can have many connotations, including the right to spread Islam through the use of violence, that is kill off everyone who does not accept Islam or corrupt or degrade them into Islam. Taleban is the example of how people are tortured into following the law of Islam, women are degraded into denying their education and corrupted men/followers uphold such laws.
We have those on the Christian side just as bad, and one sure thing is, those who are meek Christian or Muslim, who rely on goodness to prevail will be the ones who sit back and watch the extremists ruin what we have.
People are willingly following security checks at airports etc, they have given up part of their freedom, worry free travel etc etc, why? some nut took it into his head the notion to put fear into peoples lives because they do not follow his way of life. No way do I feel sorry for those guys, they brought it on themselves. I feel sorry for their innocent victims and the degredation some of them may go through.
