    I sincerely hope this is just a brilliant piece of satire but coming from daily kos, I fear that it is serious. Of course I don't believe converting to Islam is the mainstream platform of the Democratic party, but the "peace at all cost" appeasement philosophy of the left-wing is certainly scary to say the least.

    Does this mean everyone will get a free copy of the Koran?

    OK, all joking aside. USMC what you posted if it is reality is among the most dumb ideas I have ever heard. If history is any example to go on, I seem to recall several wars between two muslim countries.

    The thing is, short of a nuclear detonation in DC, terrorism is not a threat the America. Any annoyance for sure. But a more likely way to lessen the threat of muslim terrorists attacking the us and killing innocents is to be more neutral when it comes to Israel. That would be the biggest thing.

    If I were President, before the end of my term, I would set up a true soverign Palestine. Then I would have the UN undertake an arms embargo on Israel and all of its neighbors. Then I would ensure by force of the American military that any aggressive acts would be swiftly punished.
    But thats just me.

    You're not at all disturbed by people in your camp advocating such levels of appeasement?

    This is real progressive thinking. And I'm pretty sure that the converting to Muslim thing is a joke, and if its not then don't associate the author with 'my camp' please.

    If the US is a bit more neutral with Israel, and stops acting as the country that is spreading (or forcing) wonderful democratic freedom on the middle east, you might find you dont get so much hate mail from that side of the world.

    Granted I have never had the opportunity to sit down face to face with someone from the middle east(I live in the middle of nowhere, normal American minorities dont really come here. Mostly native, then white, then a few asians)
    But I have had the chance to discuss ME politics with several online. I dont claim to be an expert. But it is interesting to note that every single one of them said distrust and hard feelings from the US stem from our blind and stubborn support of Israel.

    None of them said we should wipe them off the face of the earth or anything like that. It was a matter of being objective when it comes to Israel-neighbors.

    When the Muslims misbehave call them out. When the Israelis misbehave, call them out on it. Plain and simple.

    Great idea, unfortunately the US only believes in one side of that equation. I'm not being anti semitic, but thanks to Israeli lobbying groups, chief among them AIPAC, our Mideast foreign policy consists mainly of the Israel can do no wrong approach.

    Berreal has made me very aware of the AIPAC. Once again an example of politicians who are bought and sold with little regard to the overall well being of thier constituents.
