its the same idealism that lead the jews to believe that 'things were different this time' before world war 2, until they were shown different, and that led them to join the communists until stalin decided that the rootless cosmopolitans must be 'uprooted'. sarid is the biggest idealist, living in a bubble with a bunch of left wing idealists. lets just be honest - islam is a religion that has not had a reformation, that predominates in countries that have never had revolutions. the world lives in two different eras, and the imams who define this islam live in an era of stark black and white, us and them, crusaders and mujahideen, infidels and believers. we can believe all we want that it is not true, right until the time that the biggest nuclear suicide bomb goes off under our noses, or we can grow a pair of cerebral hemispheres and protect ourselves until the islamic world reaches the 21st century.
