Don't get me started on the Crusades. The Crusades were a Christian
Jihad. What your suggesting would evaporate any moral high-ground for
the Western countries. There would be no difference between the Western
countries and Iran. You can't attack from a moral high-ground by
standing in the gutter.
Terrorism is as valid a tool of political change as war is. Extremism
is the problem on both sides of this issue. One can't fight extremism
by becoming extremist.

If this were the case, the first thing that would happen is that a
(white-looking) terrorist would board an airplane wearing an American
military uniform. These people are crazy, not dumb.
