Asking Muslims about their real motives is like asking Jon Lovins (the pathological liar on SNL) . . . their God (Allah) REQUIRES that they deceive the infidel in support of jihad. It is pointless to even ask.

I watched a video once on this exact topic, and they interviewed various Imam's (the Islamic version of a priest) from the middle east. Each one said that murder is not right for a true Muslim, and that these terrorists and their supporters only shame the religion and give it a bad name. The people who give the funeral for the terrorists probably claim to be Muslim, but if they support that cause then they are not.

It is not all about JIHAD JIHAD JIHAD like people say, its not like that at all.

I tend to feel that a few extremists have hijacked the Islamic religion in order to make their actions appear to be based on legitimate religious principles. All religions have extremists including Christians who believe it is ok to kill doctors who perform abortions or bomb gay nightclubs. It's always the extremists who get all of the attention of course because their actions are so violent that it becomes a major news event. That makes it easy to forget about the overwhelming mainstream of any religion who have no desire to hurt anyone and are able to live in peace with others in society.

I repeat the Jon Lovins comment above. There are two forms of jihad (one is personal and one is in war for the defense of Islam). The personal one is touted by the deceivers who would like to hide the fact that as long as Israel exists jihad is in war or defense mode. This makes all those who support Israel or who are non-Muslim . . . NOT innocents who must be deceived and are legitimate targets in jihad. As I said . . . ALL Muslims get CREDIT with Allah for the actions of jihadis . . . whether or not they express support for them. Make no mistake . . . Allah is supposed to dominate the world according to Islam.
