The Problem Demonstrated

I was saying the other day that there is a problem with the religion of Islam.  This was just demonstrated by the gruesome murders of 2 American soldiers.

As horrific as this act undoubtedly was, Americans have to accept casualties like this if we believe in this war, just as we will have to search our consciences when our troops kill bystanders and civilians.

But it’s not the naked acts of violence themselves but the value system behind them that is the fundamental problem.  A quote from the article:

“We announce the good news to our Islamic nation that we executed God’s will and slaughtered the two crusader animals we had in captivity…”

The problem isn’t that the killers believe this tripe, although they evidently do – it’s that the silent majority of Muslims in the region condone it.
