Isn't This Interesting?

What do the terrorists want?-Commentary-The Washington Times, America's Newspaper: "Osama bin Laden, in 1998, issued the following 'fatwa,' or religious edict: 'The killing of Americans and their civilian and military allies is a religious duty for each and every Muslim to be carried out in whichever country they are until Al Aqsa mosque has been liberated from their grasp and until their armies have left Muslim lands [emphasis added].'
So, Islamic fascists demand that 'infidels' leave 'Muslim lands.' But define 'Muslim lands.' Arabs, after all, dominated Europe from the eighth-century AD until 1492 AD, occupying lands as far west as Spain and modern France.
'One day the black flag of Islam will be flying over Downing Street,' said Anjem Choudray, a spokesman for Al-Muhajiroun ('the immigrants'), described by the Jerusalem Post's Ori Golan as a radical Islamic organization based in Britain. In calling for jihad, Mr. Choudray says, 'Lands will not be liberated by individuals, but by an army. Eventually there'll have to be a Muslim army. It's just a matter of time before it happens.'
Wall Street Journal reporters Ian Johnson and John Carreyrou recently noted that Muslim extremists define Arab lands to include Europe. 'Fatwas,' they write, 'are traditionally only valid in the Islamic world, so [Ayatollah] Khomeini's [1989] fatwa implied something profound: Europe was part of the Islamic world [emphasis added]. It was a revolutionary change that now is accepted by many Islamic theologians and thinkers.' Europe was part of the Islamic world?"

What this indicates is that our Saudi base and other straw men are not exactly what are at issue here as the left would have us believe. This says that in order to appease radical Islam, we must reinquish Europe to them as well as take all Anglos out of Muslim countries. No different than great wars of the past, the radicals we fight today are fighting to build an empire, it would seem. If that is so, then the idea of trying to better "understand" or attempt to appease them is futile and silly.
