Not just someone of a different political persuasion.
This, from Daily Kos, the best-known lefty website:
"All in all, converting to Islam would be a small price to pay for an end to the killing and maiming of our sons and daughters, not to mention the billions of dollars we could put to better use than fighting this perpetual war."

These people aren't misguided, they're not just harmless fools and they're not merely lethally uninformed. They're the enemy within our societies, actively working to destroy our way of life.
Surrender is the first option for these people, not something unthinkable or at least a last resort. Sure, they dress it up as compromise or cultural sensitivity or commonsense, but what they're talking about is abject surrender, no less.
And they'll happily drag the rest of us down that road with them, given half a chance.
