Its a very small minority of fanatics that are considered a threat


Oh,thanks for changes your strategic position from a whole country to a small minority.

The actual fact wont go with your verses.

Yesterday a drone killed several Pakistani civilian.

Why they nakedly pursue to support ISRAEL.(I respect all geniouse including jews).

Is it another attempt to put Israelis in a new trouble when they advance a step toward Egypt to solve the regional problem.

I strongly belive the last NAM unity couldnot be tolerated by US.Its become a threat to their war machine.

I don't see a problem with the ad in the picture;  Jihad is not Islam and Islam is NOT Jihad!

This is about extremism; if someone posted an ad in 17th century Spain titled "defeat the Inquisition" it would be the same thing.

Pretty much spot on - except that said ad willbe read by people with just an average IQ or educati ...

You are the biggest offender of this.

As soon as anyone talks about muslim extremism, you take it as an attack against the muslim population and totally deny the existence of extremist.

...average IQ or education level who will not be able to distinguish between jihadists and Muslims as such.

We have seen way too many incidents in the last ten years or so of such generalisations. I think an ad like this doesn't belong in a public train or bus. If at all, it could be run in a philosophical magazine.


Actually we are wrong about the commonly accepted meaning of the word, Jihad,which the vast majority of Americans know as “Holy War”, has BOTHviolent AND non-violent meanings.  A “philosophical magazine” might suggest using “Jihad bil Saif” instead.

More Americans know the difference between Islam and Jihad (“Holy War”) as they have been directly and indirectly affected by it for decades.  At the same time there over 2000 mosques in America.  Polls indicate the vast majority (about 91%) of Americans agree that Muslims should be involved in US politics and a 98% think Muslims should be involved in US institutions.  Drawing a conclusion about the “average IQ or education level” of Americans based on anti-mosque protests in New York or California popping up in the news networks is naïve and condescending.
