<<Sooner or later they will wake up to the fact that the only people who can defeat radical Islam are moderate Muslims, and those moderate Muslims - upon whom you'd like to wage an infantile campaign of counterproductive ridicule - are indispensable allies in this conflict.>>--ziege

Are you a "moderate Muslim" ziege? If not, where do they lurk? It seems they have had ample time to step up, speak out, and recognize Israel. I was in D.C. the night Jimmy Carter came out with Begin and Sadat, all smiles, handshakes all around. We thought it was all resolved then and there.

I'm all for "moderate Muslims" helping quell the violence, ziege. But like any other public figure in the modern world, they'll have to have humility and be willing to take the negative--indeed, even the cheap shots and ridicule that will inevitably come their way--and not expect anything in return for it. Nothing. We don't change. We don't get more like them. We don't accomodate them. Period. Maybe we can do business with them--oil, obviously we will continue--and the DPW ports deal. But--noooooo--the liberals are against it--not safe, they say.

Where do you stand on the DPW deal, ziege?

/s/ S.T.
