    To Muslims, Judaism and Christianity, because they predated Islam, are kind of grandfathered in as far as being acceptable religions go. In fact the Koran speaks of Jewish land. What we need to do is bring out those points, while eschewing the points of views popularized by the radical crazies among them. The fact is, the outlandish always get the publicity. It's not news that nothing happened or that, for another day, people behaved themselves. The miscreants always look for a way to legitimize what they do so they latch onto and justify their miscreant ways by relying on and citing the more violent and radically interpreted passages in their bible. This does not have to be. It's time to accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, latch on to the affirmative, don't mess with Mr. In-between.
