Muslims v. The Terrorists

Here's a great OpEd piece from Youssef Ibrahim, courtesy of USA TODAY.

Could it be that Muslims around the world are finally getting tired of hate groups like Hezbollah, Hamas and al Qaeda? Wouldn't that be something? If the "good Muslims" that we are always claiming not to be at war with actually stood up and told these terrorist scumbags to knock it off? Could it be that Muslim exremists are actually hurting Muslim and Arab causes the world over? Is it possible that Egypt and Saudi Arabia and Jordan and Bahrain are going to side with free and democratic people everywhere? What an amazing picture that would make. A couple of swift kicks to Russia and China, and then this could be one big blue fuzzy marble again.

As far as the rest of the world goes, Ethiopia may invade Somalia to stop Islamic militia. Well, both the U.N. and the U.S. failed, why not let Ethiopia give it a try? Here's more.

Israel continues to pound Lebanon, and many experts believe that Israel will prosecute a limited ground war within the week. Look for SecState Rice to put off a visit until sometime after that occurs. Go Israel!

Chechen rebels vow to continue efforts against Russia. Russia has also released a list of terrorist organizations. Seems that they aren't without their own troubles...

North halts inter-Korean reunions in protest of South Korea's decision to halt food shipments.

Blogs of War reports that India bans some blogs.

All in all, it was just another Tuesday. Let's hope Wednesday dawns brighter.
