Dress like one? Exactly where are the rules about how an American should dress? American Orthodox priests wear cassocks (look like dresses) American mechanics wear dark tear resistant clothing, American lifeguards wear swimming suits, American soldiers wear uniforms, etc. There is no definition of "American Dress". Personal freedoms are important in the U.S. that includes how they dress.

Correct, but it can have a negative effect upon potential customers therefor the store has the right to request its removal. If customers think your store is in with muslims during a time of war they may chose to shop elsewhere. Under normal circumstances if radical muslim terrorists had not attacked this country, it would be different, but it is not different and the average American should look suspiciously at muslims. You never know if they are collecting intelligence for future operations here in the states which is a stated goal of al queda.
According to news stories she didn't have contact with customers she worked in the stock room mostly after business hours. The rest of your post is just paranoia.

You live in fantasy land if you think that radical muslims are not actively targeting places in the United States. Did you not hear any of what was found on bin ladens computers? al queda is actively looking for soft targets here in the United States. We all have a responsibility to be aware, and since everyone of the attackers on 9-11 was a muslim it is fair to look suspiciously at them. It is sheep like you who allow our country to be attacked when you fail to acknowledge the goals of our enemies, radical muslims are real and they want to destroy our way of life.
And where is your proof she's a terrorist? Where is your proof she is a radical Muslim? Until you have some your argument is still just paranoia.

Wiping out the opposition is what you do in a war. Radical muslims declared Jihad against the United States. Jihad is a declaration of war so therefore we are at war with radical muslims. The problem with the non radical muslims is that they do not condem the attacks of the radical musims. If regular muslims want to be accepted they must be willing to condone the attacks of radical muslims and to turn in radical muslims who preach violence and hatred at their local mosques.
So, that means we can kill U.S. Citizens of the Muslim faith? How about Muslims in France? Germany? Canada? All because they "do not condem the attacks of the radical musims".

Maybe we should make them take a pledge. Something to profess their allegiance to the United States of America.

We are fighting terrorists. They would be terrorists if they were Muslim, Catholic, Protestant, whatever. And people of any faith should report any knowledge of any violent activity.

But if we have to report any anti-government hatred, we're going to have to end these Topix boards. Because there is more hatred on these boards than at a KKK rally.

Again, this is all to eliminate Christian religious competition.

The Democrats (Teddy Kennedy) pushed through the 1965 Immigration because he felt there were too many White Christians and now we are seeing the Somali and Muslim infestation as a result. These people bring their cultural darkness to the light of America.

America and Christianity are the light of the world.

Islam is the darkness of the world.

The more Muslims spread, the more they build their perverse mosques, the darker the world grows.

You are absolutely right!
The Muslims have one goal...to change the world , every country, to Muslim faith. We are the infidels. In our own country, they are pushing for Sharia law, to over ride our own laws in the courts.
If you read about what is happening to France, England, Belgium, countries all around the world, they are pushing their beliefs beyond belief. Read about Michigan. read about how in our own country, to have Sharia Law on the ballot, in a few states already.
Read about how many mosques are going up at an alarming rate.
They multiply at a faster rate than our own citizens and in time, they will be the majority, and we'll all be wearing burkas and towels on our heads.
Research and you will find the truth!

Very interesting!

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a bloc of 57 Muslim countries, is pressuring Western countries into making it an international crime to criticize Islam or Mohammed all on the name of "religious tolerance."

The Dutch parliament has approved a motion to revoke a law that makes it a crime to insult God.

Free speech activists say the move represents a significant victory at a time when Muslim groups are stepping up pressure on European governments to make it a crime to criticize of Islam or the prophet Mohammed.

Article 147 of the Dutch Penal Code was drafted in the 1930s and had not been used for half a century; leading legislators said there was no longer a need for it. The decision to abolish the law follows national elections in September 2012, in which two liberal parties (the People's Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD) and the Labour Party (PvdA) emerged victorious

I agree.

These sort of concessions to Muslims only makes them more violent, like the bombing in Boston, massacre at Fort Hood and beheading the soldier in Britain.

I don't see any of this getting any better with weak and clueless Obama in the White House, our petulant man child president.

Privately owned companies have the right to enforce a dress code for all employees. Refute that if you can and cite a reference.
