    That's exactly right, and what I meant. This is what the muslims are doing, fighting the oppression tried on them, ofcourse in a very aggressive style, not that they began in this style, but has only grown into this style, a style adopted from the enemy.

    >The only thing is that their violence is usually a little less extreme than Muslim fundamentalists use and therefore it is less in the news.
    Don't you get news about that is happening in and around Israel, a land controlled by "Man of Peace" , a Christian?

    In 1122 Christian crusaders swept over Jerusalem and slaughtered men, women and children, 'until their horses were knee deep in blood. We then went to the church to thank the Lord for his mercy.'

    In 777 , Charlemagne, a devout Christian, after conquering the Saxon rebels, gave them a choice between baptism and execution. When they refused to convert, he had 4500 of them beheaded in one morning.

    In the fourth century, Emporor Constantine, the first Roman Emperor to become a Christian, had over 3000 Christians executed because their interpretation of the Bible did not agree with his. That is more than the number of Christians who died at the hands of the Romans during the well known 1st century "Christians to the lions" persecutions.
    Search for more and you'll get plenty more.

    I would think that a true fundementalist of any religion would be governed by the doctrines of the religion. In every religion I am aware of, one of the tenets is not to kill.

    The "19 devout islamic fundamenalist" did not do what they did just for fun or with an attitude "let's have a death ride", they had a cause, a remorse.
    Anyway, "3,021" is not a big number I guess when compared to the following numbers:
    * 1.5 million people in Iraq, over half of them children under five, have died as a direct result of the US led UN sanctions
    * More than 2,000 people have died in Palestine due to Israel's atrocity supported by the US
    * There are more, don't have time to list them all
