I honestly did not read the review of "Traitor", because the opening line from the reviewer stopped me cold - he said "As a devout and convinced Muslim, who hates Islamic extremism for the twisted and sick ideology it is, I thought ”Traitor” would be one movie I’d enjoy watching."

Wow. I skipped down and read the comments. Two commenters stood out. Opus was right on when he wondered why the mainstream Muslims, if they are in fact peace-loving don't "vocally stand up against the fanatics". The silence, he said, is deafening. I have wondered since 9/11 where the moral outrage from all those peace-loving Muslims is.

Another point well made came from someone named Whiskey (OK, I don't like what that connotes), who wondered whether it was even possible for someone to be both Muslim and American. The two are so ideologically opposed that it's impossible for them to coexist.

President Obama's best line yesterday was the one where he said that "To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist."

While I would welcome and open-handed response from the Islamic world, I doubt it will ever happen. They can't unclench the fist and remain congruent with their ideology.
