So now you want the power to pass judgment on anyone in the entire world that you, sitting down there in Podunk, Arkansas, or where ever you may be at the moment, don't happen to approve of. Tell that man in Tehran to hold it just a moment while the Prophet passes judgment on what he just said. You there, the Mulim lady in Jakarta, you can't believe that because the Prophet says that he can interpret that as Muslim resistance! You there, yes, the Afghani with the gun, yes, I know you call yourself a freedom fighter but the Prophet says you are a terrorist, so off you go to the secret prison.
My, my, aren't you a piece of work? You pass judgment on everyone in the whole world, telling them who can hold what belief! Please sir, may I go to Mass in the morning? The priest is a liberal. Is that all right?
You think the whole world is your game of Mother May I? You are completely mad.
You have totally misunderstood my point. All what I have done was to use both ' muslim resitance ' and ' terrorism ' side by side because one man's 'muslim resistance ' is another man's ' terrorist'. To accuse me of being judgemental is not correct. I am a realist and dispassionate analyst.

Do you mean to say that religious affiliation of a candidate doesn't affect his electability?....
We do not have any doubt about the strong muslim roots of the president what we don't know for sure is the date of his conversion to christianity.
I mean that if you say he can only be elected if he is a Christian then that is a religious test for public office and is against the constitution. Whatever conversion he may have had is irrelevant and none of your business if he doesn't want to talk about it.

Having Baptist or Muslim roots is completely irrelevant.

You are not an idealist. You are simply ignorant of the American way. You want to quibble about some religious test for public office and argue about his relatives. So what? I see no point in your rant.

Indeed, I am not an idealist. Your problem is that you can not differentiate between " religion is irrelevant and religion should be irrelevant. " You have to realise that Obama was afraid to use his middle name until he got to Cairo.

So now you can see into people's minds like George Bush? That's nutty. You are just one of those cranks who tries hard to see whatever Obama does as a justification for your preconceptions. You don't seem to have anything to say at all.

I don't have any preconceptions about Obama. You mistook me for another person.

You are correct on the second point. As long as we fail to engage the Muslims on a global front we will continue loosing. This Christmas attack is living proof of that.

This is what happens when we elect a Muslim to direct our War against the Muslims.

This is just the beginning. Fort Hood and now this are only warnings of thing to come. "

Are you still hiding under the covers from these phantoms of the night? Many Muslims are American citizens and have full rights. The USA has diplomatic relations with nearly all Muslim nations. The war against Islam doesn't exist. You are running from shadows.
I see you are still in denial even after I posted the names of over 4,000 innocent unarmed American citizens who have been killed by the Muslims fighting THEIR WAR against us.

I just have one question for you.

How many MORE innocent unarmed American citizens have to die in this war before we have your permission to fight back?

What do you mean by " as long as we fail to engage the Muslims on a global front we will continue loosing " ?
It is very simple. The Muslims have training camps spread out around the world even here in America. As long as we continue on our present course of action of isolated fighting the Muslims are free to continue recruiting and training their members.

That means that they are able to continue tossing more and more people into the battle as they remain able to hit us at will and anywhere they so choose. The Fort Hood attack was just a warning and a small glimpse into what they are capable of. At the present time the Muslims have the capabilities of hitting us from within our own borders as well as kill American citizens overseas.

It is for this reason that we have got to change our strategy and start looking at this as a global war and stop the insanity of Afghanistan and Iraq. The Muslims want us to stay bogged down in both Iraq and in Afghanistan that way we are unable to hit them where it will do the most good.

Our borders are still wide open and most immigrants entering this country disappear shortly after crossing our borders. They enter our country on visitor's visas, worker's Visas and on student Visas and then they slip into the Muslim community only to reemerge as terrorists. They are crossing our border with Mexico and Canada. Some were born here and have joined terrorist groups right here in America.

Ft. Hood and the Christmas attacks are only warning of things to come.

While it is true that not all terrorists are Muslims ALL Muslims ARE potential terrorists.

I paged back a bit and didn't see any list of over four thousand names.

Are you seriously claiming to be waiting for my permission for anything? You have got to be joking.

I am unaware of any "Muslim war against US" to which you allude.
