318. I never claimed that these magic symbols 'proselytize'.
What they are, is just that - magic symbols. It is exactly the same as painting a cross on your crusader shield. It doesn't really 'do' anything any more than the murmured 'Allah akbar' does anything before the suicide bomber blows himself up - it is the gun or bomb that does the work.

But it DOES confirm in the minds of the enemy that it is a religious war, that it is an attack not just on their selves and their homes, but on their very way of life.

"Yet, one of our muscle-bound boys standing and breathing and looking good making coverts of the local women..."

You are quite right - that is a sick and bizarre thought and I don't understand it. I don't know what the fuck you think you mean, and have no idea how it pertains to your claim that Muslims are really Christians at heart - just a little different, like Mormons.

Your lack on knowledge and understanding is astounding.
