Just read this commentary on Al Jazeera. Actually speaks to the heart of the differences on both side. I've quoted the last paragraph.

The future of mankind depends partly upon a sincere understanding between America and the Islamic world. I hope our religious, intellectual and political leaders will recognise the magnitude of this issue and act upon the maxim: Better late than never.

It does seem that both christian and muslim extremists play a part in the struggle we're seeing. So how to we countermand this? In my opinion by the mainstream on both sides has to speak and act with a louder voice and actions.

Yeah, if those damn Christian extremists don't stop blowing themselves up and hijacking planes, we'll never see peace in our lifetime.

Yeah, man, just the other day I saw one of those Christian extremists walk into a Jewish marketplace and start shooting people.

American Muslims and Christians aren't the problem. Pat Robertson and Muhammed Ali aren't blowing $#it up...

It's fascinating how other cultures truly view things from a fundamentally different prism of reality. The America that this guy describes is unrecognizable to me, because he's viewing it from his own perspective.
