Since you are persuaded that Islam itself, the entire religion,
is out to get you, you must be pretty fearful indeed. Actually,
nothing could be further from the truth. The vast majority of
Islamic people are not crazed fundamentalist theocrats and
certainly not terrorists. So why slam 1.2 billion people or so
as if they are all out to get you? Why do this to yourself or
to them?

Perhaps some of those people who might want to kill you want to
because they are persuade that "you" or rather the US in general
wants to kill or seriously harm them and theirs.

OK. I'll shut up on this.
