Which side are you on?

Can you be neutral in the so-called war on terror?
Tonight we'll be exploring the arguments for and against the proposition that the time is coming when everyone will have to decide which side they're on.
A majority of the British public opposed the Iraq war and Tony Blair's position on the war in Lebanon, yet the vast majority also abhor Islamic terrorism in the UK. Are those positions compatible? Bush and Blair seem to think not.
But what of the other argument, that these events can't be lumped together, that problems with the Islamic world could be resolved by a change in foreign policy, and the West's current approach is only making matters worse?
What do you think?
