I asked this in religious debate-but not getting many responces- so here it is with a different title!
So, I took a shower and came out and the 700 Club is on (news is over I guess) and Pat says
"You know, Lee(?) the shocking thing is, our government no longer refers to a war on terror they are prohibited from identifying the source of the terror . They cannot any longer point to the fact that they're Muslims. They are the ones that are doing it and is (or it's) part of Islamic faith to wage jihad and jihad is not just a -a struggle in the soul, jihad is open killing of your enemies and we as the United States are considered enemies of Islam and we need to identify the enemies. In world war II, we didn't have any choice but to say the nazis were our enemies so we fought the nazis and we beat them But how can we beat an enemy if the government refuses to identify the ones who are doing the shooting and the fighting"
the blue words are the ones he put more emphasis on... and I wondered why a "friend" of mine on FB who is super religious would post so much hateful stuff about Muslims and Islam... *shakes head

We aren't fighting Muslims, we are fighting Al Qeda and the Taliban

The enemy could be anyone. I would not identify the enemy as Muslims, no broad brush here. A 12 year old boy, the son of religious parents and 1 of 7 children, was arrested for killing his parents and wounding 2 of his sibs. Since he is just one of many tweens/teens who have committed such acts, are we willing to label all kids in that age group "the enemy"? 6 years ago, I might have-LOL
