I'm Still Angry!!!!!!

And just a little puzzled.

Cal Thomas's latest article is one of a genre Bryant (the previous poster at this site) used to call "Muslim Menace" articles. Basically it covers how we should be afraid of Muslims because of the Terrorists. Fair enough although a little overdone. Certainly caution is never a bad thing. But it ends with this troubling paragraph.
There will be no detente, entente or peace treaty between the forces of darkness and those of light. As much as Western politicians may wish to avoid the true root cause of this war, they do so at the peril of their citizens. This is a religious war. The terrorists understand it as such. Too many in the secular and wimpishly religious West do not.
What does Mr. Thomas mean by this being a religious war? That doesn't sound very positive to me :-(

I'm not sure how you win a religious war. Should we adopt the tactics of annihilation our enemies are utilizing? I hope not. I think it's important to remember that the Muslims or the Arabs are not our enemies. Our enemies are terrorists; those who choose to use terror. Most Muslims are not terrorists. Let's try to keep that in mind.
