I've got some answers:
1) President Bush, rathering than telling the truth about what motivates Islam's violence against non-Muslims, tries to equate Islam with Judaism and Christianity;The first step to healing is admitting there's a problem. Neither can you defeat an enemy you do not recognize.
2) Most of the Western press is so anti-American that any attack against the U.S. (especially with that right-wing fanatic Bush in office) is probably deserved;
3) "My enemy's enemy is my friend;" and
4) Political-correctness is so powerful that most people are afraid to tell the truth about Islam for fear of being called "Islamophobe" or some other name.
