When a business magazine, such as Investors.com, takes a look at mosques as armouries and sees them for what they are, what do we make of our governments who look at mosques as armouries and see nothing but buildings made with voting blocs?At what point does the average person say it's too much lying from our elected representatives? We still have the right to toss them out of office. But what do we do when our own won't do the needed thing? What if our own vote for dhimmis and fascists? Business people are looking at the world of Islam now and they are seeing what so many of us have known for years: that Islam is a violent poligion, a political religion bent on conquest and the violent impostion of slavery and death upon the world at large. Our governors still don't get it. Many of our voting fellow-citizens don't get it. And here we are in democracies where our majority fellows will determine our lives-- or our deaths.

From CBS News: Iraq Terror Chief Killed In Airstrike.
Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the most-wanted terrorist in Iraq with a $25 million bounty on his head, was killed when U.S. warplanes dropped 500-pound bombs on his isolated safehouse northeast of Baghdad, coalition officials said Thursday.
U.S. military spokesman Maj. Gen. William Caldwell showed a picture Abu Musab al-Zarqawi with his eyes closed and spots of blood behind him after he was killed by an air strike. Caldwell also showed a video of the attack in which he said F-16 fighter jets dropped two 500 pound bombs on the site. ...
His fighters led a wave of kidnappings of foreigners, killing at least a dozen, including Arab diplomats and three Americans. Al-Zarqawi is believed to have wielded the knife in the beheadings of two of the Americans, Nicholas Berg and Eugene Armstrong, and earned himself the title of "the slaughtering sheik" among his supporters.
From FoxNews: Zarqawi Was Mastermind Behind Iraq's Bloodiest Attacks.
The string of kidnappings of Westerners by his followers terrorized foreign workers in Iraq, forcing them to limit movements and take up costly security precautions.
Among the other hostage slayings claimed by Al Qaeda in Iraq were American Jack Hensley, British engineer Kenneth Bigley, Kim Sun-il of South Korea and Shosei Koda of Japan, whose decapitated body was found dumped and wrapped in an American flag.
