Dear Bruce, You can level, destroy, burn, kill, and wipe whatever you want, but you can not change how an entire society think and live. You are right, if mosques are being used for combat missions, then it is no longer a mosque and becomes a regular building and losses its identity as a mosque. It is people that makes a mosque and not the other way around. You may want to learn about real Islam and study Imam Ali, who many of the muslims do not want his teachings to be in existance. May Hashim guide you into the right pathway.
