    Great show. I do take issue with David’s view that you can not compare radical Islam terror and radical Christian terror. I believe this to be a naive world view. President Bush prayed with a fundamentalist Christian the night before launching a bombing campaign on a Muslim country that had never attacked America. The end result of that was over 1 million dead Iraqis, most of them Muslims. That, to many, was radical Christian terror. I was in Iraq in 2004-2005 including Fallujah. I can tell David that most people there viewed the US was as Christian terrorist nation.

    So yes there is a very valid comparison between the two. I could go on but I trust I made my point.

    Please keep up the great work you do.
