Okay, The Ghost has got to talk about it. He heard another story about Muslims killing more innocent folks and the news guy called them Radicals like he's been trained to do. The news guy is also trained to say Islamo-fascists but that's a mouth full so The Ghost understands. This time it was Pakistan, and their king or whatever he's supposed to be is fighting them. The Ghost yawned, cause this kind of stuff just ain't news anymore.
Then he got pissed off. Then he started thinking more, it usually happens to him in that order anyway.
When will the radicals be called just regular true believers in Islam? Are you a radical as long as you're not part of the majority? Yeah okay whatever, most Muslims are peace loving folks who just want to work and raise their kids blah blah blah. The Ghost thinks a pretty big chunk of the earth's Muslims don't mind at all when a lady straps a bomb belt on and blows up a police station or a restaurant or a school. If it's in Jerusalem jack it up to 80%. Take your hand away from your mouth cuz you believe it too.
Well let's say The Ghost is wrong, and only 10% of Muslims support these terrorists. The Ghost isn't a big math guy, but that means about 100,000,000 Muslims. Are you a radical if you've got that many fans?
According to Serviam! (06/21/07 A Threat From Within) The Ghost is a radical because he don't think abortion is ok but three fourths of Catholics do. But since The Church teaches that abortion is wrong, The Ghost calls himself a true believer in The Faith and if he has to be a Radical too that's OK with him.
Well, that's the rub for Muslims, ain't it? Do all those peaceful child rearing Muslims out there reject the Radicals, the way The Ghost would if some crazed Christo-fascist bombed a mosque? Do they speak out? If 900,000,000 of them thought this stuff was wrong, you'd think they could get 4 or 5 to come on TV and say so.
