A course for U.S. military officers has been teaching that America's enemy is Islam in general, not just terrorists. The Pentagon suspended the course last month after a student complained, and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey said the Joint Forces Staff College was reviewing how curricula are designed. Here are some excerpts of statements from the course:

_ "They hate everything you stand for and will never coexist with you, unless you submit."

_ "Islam as it currently defines itself is an ideology rather than solely a religion with the normally associated protections we afford such beliefs."

_ "It is therefore time for the United States to make our true intentions clear. This barbaric ideology will no longer be tolerated. Islam must change or we will facilitate its self-destruction."

_ "The United States has come to accept that radical `true Islam' is both a political and military enemy to free people throughout the world."

_ Possible outcomes of an anti-Islam campaign: "Saudi Arabia threatened with starvation, Mecca and Medina destroyed, Islam reduced to cult status."
