no I don't feel slammed at all. I think our debate would be much more heated if I was debating some guy claiming we need to kill all muslims or something like that, because as I have said and believed for a while the reason the middle east is the way it is is because they are victims of oppression and poverty. they also have weak governements. there are many americans who would kill em all if they had the chance, and they are no different from terrorists. the differecnes in the people aren't so much the religion they chose as it is their surrounding community they had while growing up. A muslim who grew up in a free nation with a good education and without poverty is likely to be Liberal. I have met two people from the middle east. One was an atheist and the other was a hindu. They both told me what things were like where they came from. They by no means speak for the entire middle east. But one thing is for sure. There are many problems over there.
