    Why, so they can shoot up a Planned Parenthood clinic?

    FYI, they aren't.

    Sweet scene, but you're seriously naive if you think that sort of display is going to stop the likes of ISIS.

    If they were a Nazi they would know better.

    But for whatever reason the left does not think ISIS to be as bad, as where I think they are worse.

    You defeat ISIS by winning hearts and minds. By undercutting the basis for recruitment.

    They're losing. Their "caliphate" has lost about a quarter of its territory in the past year. It's why they've switched tactics and become more Al Qaeda than caliphate.

    This is why they attacked Paris and forged a Syrian passport for one of the attackers to carry - of course terrorists on suicide missions always make sure to carry identification. They don't want countries taking in the refugees who should be part of their caliphate.

    60 percent of Americans say they've never met a Muslim. That has to change.

    ISIS is much, much weaker than 1930's Germany was.

    Frankly, based on the views you have posted here, YOU are no Christian.

    ISIS defeated themselves when they proclaimed their "caliphate." They are never going to be more than a petty band of robbers, en they only have success recruiting idiots in Europe because "we" give ISIS much more credit than they deserve.

    "60 percent of Americans say they've never met a Muslim."

    In an earlier thread, Sh76 got much applause here (though not from me) for saying
    that he wanted to meet Muslims (in a local mosque?) in the USA in order to discuss
    the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. I pointed out that only a small minority of Muslims are
    Palestinians, and some Palestinians are not Muslims. I suggested that Sh76 contact
    some Palestinians directly (most major universities have Palestinian student groups)
    rather than random Muslims, most of whom probably care little about Palestinians.
    But Sh76 seemed uninterested in meeting real Palestinians rather than random Muslims.

    How many readers here have ever shared a meal with any Muslim? I have.

    Did I say they were stronger?

    No, I said they were more evil.

    A friend of mine said he once shook hands with a Muslim.

    But that was years ago when he met the President.

    Outside of that I don't know of any.

    I find that amazing. I've met so many. Did you go to college?

    I agree. I felt the same with Al Qaeda. By declaring a "war" we elevated them. We should have treated it like the criminal conspiracy it was.
