don't have any stereotypes so this clip doesn't do anything for me. I have enjoyed and thought highly of Muslims I have known as I have Mormons, Jews, Roman Catholics, Baptists, and any others. maybe even some nonbelievers.

had some good Muslim friends and given what is going on in the middle east; they are either dead, they went underground/played the game to survive, or they fooled a gullible American. Any of which is possible.

They were my friends and we shared a lot. I really liked them and don't think for a minute they are/were terrorists but religious extremist in the region have their boot on the neck of ordinary people who follow the same religion.

I think of my friends often as news reports the latest and I wish them well.

Seems to be a thing these days.

"I'm not a.... but... " or:

" I am a.... but I don't... "(implied)

No, not really. The reality is that these people are outliers. The real tiny minority in Islam isn't 'terrorists' and their supporters. The real minority is 'moderates' like these kids. Send them to any Islamic country and they'd be punished, maybe even executed, for the way they live here.

The video is all touchy, feely, college freshman 'Look at me... I'm open minded' but it doesn't reflect the stark reality.

While there is some truth to what you say, I think you ought not paint all Muslim countries (you said, "any Islamic country) the same. Apparently you have never been to Malaysia or Indonesia.

Where people are put to death for using and distrubuting drugs.

Kinda goes against the anti cop anti law and order genre.

Yes, I am well aware of "Dada means death".

But that's not the topic of the video.
