I don't doubt that.
However, is that not just one side of the argument? I don't disbute that
there are some muslems that are absolutely pissed off with the whole
affair and would rather either the bad old days returned or, have been
the ones to bring about the uprising.
In any event that's not what happened, and now we have to live with what
now is the case. There are those out there and I'm not saying I've seen
any here, that claim leave well enough alone and such but the muslems
come to the west, study in our schools, learn our ways with reguards to
economy and various other techniques and skills, then they go home and
turn their learning against the very people that gave them a break in
the first place.
I don't entirely agree with the way this whole issue was handled but I
don't endorse sitting on our hands either.
so then, what do we do? I'm buggered if I know. If I did, I wouldn't be
sitting here writing this. I'd be running the country making the

New Guinea with reports of a tribe so primitive that they have Tide but
not new Tide with lemon-fresh Borax."
