Definitely agree with you Geoff, but also agree it's not an ideal world either. So Geoff, Randy, Michelle and Pat are now to be classified as stupid. I also suggested in an earlier post that Cat Stevens (folk singer) could be a very good spokesman for peace between east and West if he wanted to. The very fact that there HAS been so few Muslims that have stood up and said that the Taliban is in the wrong according to their belliefs is rather ominous to me. My basic instinct is that they look too much towards their leaders to speak out and whatever is said, they take it as being the "Right" thing. Sadly too much of the very same thing goes for most of the non Muslim faiths too. Politics and fear of offending the masses seems to riddle the chuches of all faiths. Maybe because the Muslims don't have the right to free speech and any consequences to speaking out is feared, is the cause of their silence in the Middle East.
