Maybe it's just me, but if it's so oppresive, wouldn't you think they would collectively at least TRY to shake off the yoke of terror? Is it better to live as a subjugated coward or die as someone truly professing Allah's will?

As far as Westboro and A-Q being the same, sans murders.....what do you bet the odds are at least ONE member of Westboro houses guns...and as crazy as they are, as despicable as some of their actions are, you never heard of one of them going on a shooting spree.....now isn't that an interesting thought for comparison? A-Q has unlimited access to guns and obviously the will to kill.....Westboro does not.
Could this is why we are NOT intervening in Syria. When radical muslims aren't fighting other muslims they seem to actively target the Israel and the West. Is it in our own best interest to not bring muslim vs muslim violence to an end?
I understand why a single voice would not stand up against terrorsts. I don't understand how terrorists have such open access to RPGs, assault weapons, etc, etc, etc, but the terrorist hating governments don't.
The difference now is in the way the masses react - and much of that is for the reasons you have already given. If Westboro was armed to the teeth and the masses weren't I doubt we'd have the same show of opposition.
This goes back to one of my original "ignorant" questions. Westboro engages in annoying and offensive behavior because they have rights and protections under our Constitution. Once they overstep those rights and protections our authorities will come down on them immediately.
"Outside of Afghanistan", what allows radical muslims to engage in terrorism? Have active are muslim governments in opposing, pursuing and prosecuting terrorists?
- muslims vastly outnumber terrorists
- terrorists oppress muslims
- muslims and their governments lack the will or ability to stand up to terrorists ?
I'd sure like that last line to make sense.
