Dear Mohamed Alyzghori: I am sorry for your worry and fear and I do not advocate violence. Hence, you now understand our worry and fear we have had and are currently experiencing since and before 9/11. Retaliation: I think our war is with the terrorists and we now have terrorists abundant on U.S. soil due to our government's sheer stupidity and personal greed. Half of our safety depends on reporting, and the mosques you speak of are as responsible to report as are individual U.S. citizens. All of our borders should have been closed to ALL immigrants after 9/11 and probably before that. There was no reason to risk the safety of U.S. citizens and the government failed then and has continued to fail to secure our borders, which continues to put us at greater and greater risk of attack.

The most common baby name in the UK last year was Mohammed ... don't think it can't happen here ... not with the progressive beaurocrats and immigration judges in charge. Somalians should never been allowed into america as "refugees" ... They are refugees because they created the problem in their own country. Every community Somalians have been settled have problems with drugs, gangs and crime where little existed before.
I also loved the somalian boy was a student at Oregon State Univ ... who do you think was paying his tuition? and I bet much of his surriculum as Islamic studies... damn progressives...

calling someone else ignorant considering your simple English skills would be very funny if it wasn't so scary. Try taking an English class moron.

Huge flaw in your "logic" ... such atrocities are not done in the name of their "God" or religion ... only the muslims do that. How good can a religion be, if you have to threaten death if the person dares leave it, and convert to another religion? The islamic religion itself is to blame ... no other major religion sends its members out to kill, simply because they are non-believers.

<quoted text>So when the CATHOLIC CHURCH hides and transfers MOLESTERS and PREDITORS are they doing it to protect themselves and the IMAGE of the PERFECT CHURCH who claims that they are GOD'S represenitive on EARTH or do they just like to hide criminals. I guess you have never heard of the CRUSADES weren't they out to kill muslims for not being true belivers.So who's logic is flawed. Let's not forget Pres BUSH called the WAR in IRAQ a CRUSADE

I see your a un-employed comedian,just pointing out that the Muslims aren't the only violent religion.So if torching a place of worship is okay then it's free game on all of them when they committ crimes of VIOLENCE,RAPE,and MOLESTATION

I don't remember any of that. It was long before any of us here were born. While these events were certainly tragic, I think it's important to assess the threat in the here and now. Even the most radical elements of the Christian religion are not carrying out any any of the violent acts we are now seeing from radical Islam.

Why stop with going back a few hundred years? Let's castigate all mayans for their human sacrifices ... in fact, we could probably find human cruelty and barbarism throughout all history ... even atheists who made Gods of nature .. like the sun and wind or just themselves. Or we could be sensible ... and keep the discussion in the present time and realm.

So, now they fear retaliation. Doesn't the PC victim tactic work any more? I thought all they had to do was play on our sympathy and raise the religious freedom card when asked about their terrorism incubator sites. HOPE is in the air.

President BUSH was in office from 2001-2008, so when the CATHOLIC CHURCH talks about its long standing traditions we can ignore them,How about the IRA in IRELAND is that to far back in history for you.how about the Priest in Texas who molested kids and attemted to hire a hit-man just last week,so lets talk about the present,21.000 sex pictures of young boys on priests computer in SPAIN.so you want to talk about the present bring it on

"We have made it quite clear the FBI will not tolerate any kind of retribution or attack on the Muslim community," said Arthur Balizan, special agent in charge of the FBI in Oregon.

Really!!! and how are you going to stop this? The non-Muslim community feels threatened by the extreme end of the Muslim religion. Until the tolerant side of the Muslim religion either public joins in the battle against its extremist end or distance itself from it the non-Muslim community is going to view all Muslims with suspecion.
