"Not all Muslims"

Okay. Accepted happily without argument or reservation.

But how about: Not all Westerners. Not all Westerners are Islamophobes. Just as the violent Islamists are a tiny minority so too are the violent Islamophobes among Western nations. Most Westerners are content to go about their lives not bothering anyone and no more deserve to have war waged upon them than do the innocent Muslims of the Middle East.

Can we stop with the lectures and assignments of guilt already? If you preach it you should at least have the courtesy to practice it.
