David Petraeus: Be Nice To Muslims, Or They Might Blow Us Up

 Islamist killers Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik butchered 16 people and wounded 24 others in San Bernardino, California.

Retard Alert
If only we worked to understand them 
they would not try to kill us.

(Editor  -  Just because some clown puts on a general's uniform does not earn him one ounce of respect from me. As CIA director Petraeus shipped arms to Islamists terrorists in Syria helping al-Qaeda, al Nusra and ISIS level that nation. Now he lectures us to temper our language on Islam even though Christians, Hindus, Jews and Buddhists are being persecuted in Muslim nations all over the world.)

(Daily Caller)  -  In an op-ed for The Washington Post published Friday, former CIA Director David Petraeus said increasing anti-Muslim rhetoric in the United States threatens to drive more “moderate” Muslims to terrorism.
For Petraeus, the rapid increase of ugly rhetoric against Muslims and Islam threatens to engulf even “moderate” Muslims. This is exactly what terror groups like al-Qaida and the Islamic State want, as it supports their vision of the world as one divided between the forces of Islam and the forces of the decadent, satanic west. These groups then seize on a sort of “clash of civilizations” rhetoric to drive recruitment and push moderate Muslims into their ranks.

Muslims in the West are apparently so at risk of joining up with al-Qaida, that Petraeus thinks we need to police our own speech, as not to offend them and face the potential consequence of a growing, violent fifth column taking shape in the West.
“Rather than making our country safer, they will compound the already grave terrorist danger to our citizens,” Petraeus wrote. “As ideas, they are toxic and, indeed, non-biodegradable — a kind of poison that, once released into our body politic, is not easily expunged."
“Setting aside moral considerations, those who flirt with hate speech against Muslims should realize they are playing directly into the hands of al-Qaeda and the Islamic State,” Petraeus added. “The terrorists’ explicit hope has been to try to provoke a clash of civilizations — telling Muslims that the United States is at war with them and their religion.”
