15. But I think militant fundamentalist Islam is a direct result of the US
policy in the Mideast. Putting troops in there and supporting dictators that opress the people.

I think fundamentalist Islam is worst then fundamentalist Christianity. I think that 90% of the people who sympathize with it if they REALLY had to live under it would want a change, look at Afghanistan they were glad to be rid of the Tailabon. The Iranians are starting to grow tired of it.

If we just pulled out of the region completely we could still buy oil from them.

I kind of trace the whole rise of the thing to Iran when we put the Shah in there and then they took the hostages. Even the PLO back then was more political and less Islamic radicals. I know a guy from Lebanon who moved here in the 70's and he said that now that the anti Israeli groups are so Islamic that almost all the Christians he knew have moved out. Arab Christains, cause they are tormented by the Islamic people.
