Cajun247, my post just sailed over your head like the ISS.

If a group represents a significant percentage of a population, you cannot call them extremists; they may be a minority, but they're a mainstream minority. Extremists, on the other hand, are by definition part of an extremely small minority.

Radical Islamists are a significant portion of all Muslims, so therefore, by definition they are NOT extremists; they are part of the mainstream.

Neither are they such a small minority that they can be called "extremists."

If that be the case then groups like the Tea Party can be labeled as "extremists" not because of their platform, but because of their numbers. Difference between extremist and not to me pertains to what is, and how they will push their agenda. With this in mind Tea Partiers are not extremists neither are most Muslims not living in the Mediterranean or Middle East.

They are the majority in EGYPT and the Mediterranean countries and Indonesia. They are NOT the majority in Turkey, Kosovo, and Azerbaijan. They are NOT the majority for the entire demographic globally speaking.

Neither are they such a small minority that they can be called "extremists."

The difference between so-called moderate Muslims and extremists is that the latter actually believe that bull$#!+.

Damn - I just realized how much of a soft spot I have for islamic women. I really do empathize with their struggle and my heart goes out to those who are standing up for what our women take for granted. Hopefully, if successful, sufficient time will not elapse to transform the virtues of that struggle into an attitude of entitlement on behalf of their descendants.

Christians are trying to protect the lives of unborn human beings

That's one way of looking at it. But when you consider the fact that there is a vocal faction of them pushing abstinence-only education and bans/limits on birth control they really are using the state to infringe on women`s autonomy. It`s like they never really heard of the Ceauscescu regime.
