Default A special place for terrorists to go live

I keep seeing (and hearing) remarks that we should kill all of those Islamist terrorist groups - just wipe 'em out. While part of me agrees, the other part says "and that makes us different from them just ...how?"

I've been thinking about this a lot. We can do better.

They need their own land, a special place where they can live like they want to. Where it's OK to kill anyone who disagrees, who doesn't believe exactly the same, and who wants to live away from western influences, western education and such.

OK - that's probably do-able.
The only rule is - you check in, you don't get to come back. (kind of like a huge roach motel!)

Only - they can LIVE there. Kill anyone for revenge or insult, real or imagined. They'd pretty much take care of each other! (one way or another)

Oh yeah - the other part. They'd have to leave all western stuff behind. Not only technology like computers and cell phones, cars, airplanes, etc, no! Clothes woven in industrial factories, tools made with western technology (everything this side of a sharp rock) bic lighters, bic pens, most medicines, SOAP, any food harvested with western machinery, plastic anything - combs, shoe soles, etc.

So that leaves them a few camels, goats and chickens, stone tools and some wild plants, wearing animal skins and rubbing two sticks together for a fire (sticks which they have to break by hand or with a stone axe!) Live it up, guys! You can go back to the land in the most basic way!

And we'll all be happy.

And the place should be the bottom of the ocean.
