It's really the actions of the few mis-understanders of islam who murder and destroy in jihad in the name of their god that cause the demonization of this peaceful religion. It's those few imams, who just don't understand the clearly peaceful teaching and peaceful example of the prophet who modeled a most peaceful way of living as explained in the koran and the hadith. Oh, those poor mis-understanders of islam, they just seems to cause so many problems.

The top issue on everyone's mind this month at the Islamic Center of Long Island was this: What could be done to stop planned congressional hearings on alleged hidden radicalism among American Muslims and mosques?

If the Muslims in the US will not police their radicals, then the government will. Honor killings might be legal in their home country, but not here. Forced marriages might be legal in their home country, but not here. If they want to live under Sharia Law they can go to their home country, but not here.

Muslims demonize themselves with uncivilized behavior and then try to hide behind civil rights language, They reject Martin Luther King's concepts of intergration and equality and embrace instead the Black Power (Al Queda; Hezbollah) concepts of segregation and domination. Also, unlike King, they do not discredit violence as an agent of change. These concepts, self segregation, domination and violence, are the reasons they are rejected by civilized cultures. Muslims never give others the "freedoms" and "rights" they demand for themselves.

America needs to follow a model like they do in Israel. You profile those that may be terrorists.
If the shoe fits, so be it.
There is so much information from place of birth, passports, countries visited, watch lists and names that can flag potential terrorists.
Wanding Grandma and nearly strip searching her is not what the TSA needs to be doing.
However the islamists cry that their civil liberties are violated when they get searched.

I agree, but I believe that some of the programs pushed by the Homeland Security are a test to see how submissive the populace is at this time.

Muslims are extremely religious period. You must be extremely religious in all your doings or you are not Muslim. Therefore, it is wise to "HEAR" what this man has to say.

Those who are raised Muslim understand the long game. The long game is for them to "convert the world" according to Allah. They do this by pretense and profiting. For a Christian based society like the U.S. it is not understood that it is OK to lie, cheat, and steal in the name of Allah, to profit financially, to acquire status by profession, etc...

They regard the "LAND" or Real Estate as one way of marking their turf...I know them well as my neighbors. They are Doctors, Pharmacists, Computer engineers. Their goal is to own real estate in as many places in the world as possible. They are very good at it. We educated them on the tax payer's back...We welcomed them to our neighborhoods, but their
RELIGION dictates how they perceive the world, and Christians. Because of the openess of our society and ease of education for foreigners...My neighbors really do regard themselves as on a mission for Allah....to become the one world religion and to those who are not, you can die.

You speak of the "long game" very wisely but many Americans don't quite understand the "long game". Most think that islam is just another religion and they [just worship] their gods in thier own way and pray differently. What they DON't understand is the very nature of sharia law and its ramifications on the way we conduct our daily affairs here in the USA and the fact that they want to impose sharia law on this nation. This would change our whole system of law and order and effectively destroy our great nation thus the conversion of its infidels....or their death....

Sharia law, Christian law, it is all a way to impose religious beliefs on those of us who wish to be free from these prosthelytizers.

You believe what you want and let me believe what I want. Stop imposing laws on me based on your religious beliefs.

You ask who is imposing their religious beliefs on me? Christians are; why can't I purchase a bottle of liquor on Sunday morning? I am old enough to remember true Blue Laws when only food stores were allowed to be open at any time on Sundays.

All recognized religions are imposing their beliefs on me: my taxes are higher because they are exempt; and why are my tax dollars going towards Faith-Based Initiatives?

I have no idea what your religious beliefs are. As I said-they are your own.

Finally, "those of us" are "those of us who wish to be free from these prosthelytizers."-cut and pasted from my previous post. It wasn't a long post. You should have been able to discern that from the post.

But I am not living under Sharia Law, I am being forced to live under Christian Law.

In my country the constitution and bill of rights IS the law of the land. It is the obligation of the citizens of my country to uphold the law. Specifically which laws would you like to repeal in my country that you say "satisfy the bible thumpers"? The first 10 commandments out of the 40 or 50 that were originally written??? Just wondering.
