  There is some wisdom in your flower power.  To weaken terrorism encourage dialogue with the moderate factions of Islam which stand apart from terror.  Work on the soil of peace.  Don't just give more and more reason for hate to flourish.
While encouraging those who are of the peaceful persuasion in Islam we should begin to see some signs that they are getting the point & standing up & being counted.  They should know that their silence encourages people to paint all Islam with a broad brush of irreconcilability - just as even those who are predisposed to be open and tolerant begin to wonder about whether Islam is a true religion of peace.  Al Queda needs no "reason to hate" - they spread it with a vengeance. Be aware of the following posted on Newt Gingrich's website as one of Bin Laden's fatwas:

Consider the religious fatwa titled

The way to make evil stronger is to fight it. 
That's silly!  You must be thinking of a fairy-tale of one of those creatures that you cut off a head & two more grow back on (Medusa ?).
Nope, no fairy tale here ... just pragmatic reality.  The invasion of Iraq has made terriorism stonger.  I predict that the Israeli attacks on Hezbohla will, over time,  increase the terror in the region.  There is some wisdom in your flower power.  To weaken terrorism encourage dialogue with the moderate factions of Islam which stand apart from terror.  Work on the soil of peace.  Don't just give more and more reason for hate to flourish.

It is sad that this generation has no heroes so they have lost what it means to be one.
You might read the story of St. George & the Dragon (Sorry about the Christian stuff)

... & while you are wondering if you agree with it, ponder what the Middle East would be if there were no oil there or what it would become again if oil were made irrelevant to our modern energy future.  Simultaneously while isolating evil for our own survival we must ensure that we have the time to develop alternatives to oil as an energy source.

Good point .
