"Empathy" goes only so far. Someone has to stand up for what is right. I'll be that person.

Every religion has it's fanatics, alan. I think there are also many moderate Muslims who cringe at the bellicose rantings of the extremist elements of their own faith, too. But yes it's sad to see persons in monk's robes talking like this. All we can do is to assure others, if asked, that this does not represent the Path we are undertaking.

kind regards,
