I cannot believe people cannot understand why there are so many negative comments against Muslims! How about these?

9/11 attacks - that's obvious.
Everyday day we see in the news how innocent people-Muslims and non-Muslims are gunned down or bombed in marketplaces and mosques.
We're always hearing about "jihad." Why don't they declare jihad against diseases that cause misery against people and animals?

Look at all democracy has created, whether in America, Europe, or Asia. Automobiles, cell phones, computers, medical vaccines and techniques, etc. In recent memory what have the Muslims created to help mankind? You can thank them for planned attacks or attacks that have happened, long lines in airports due to security measures that have been adopted because of Muslim terrorists.

Just as Muslim customs should be respected in the Middle East, why don't they respect the customs and traditions of lands they live in? Instead they want to use sharia law and not assimilate with the host nation's people. Yes, there are Muslims that do, but many do not. Those that don't want the host country to change to the Muslim way. That's not right.

Muslims tend to destroy instead of create. Look at the daily headlines of hate and violence. Are Christians and Jews perfect? Nobody is. But Christians and Jews have created products and methods to help mankind and animals. Christians and Jews have made life easier and more productive through inventions.

Yes, Christian and Jewish theology have their roots in Biblical days. And the Muslims in the 6th century or so. The Christians and Jews have respected their religions and bettered themselves and mankind in a positive way at the same time. The Muslims have not bettered mankind with inventions in recent memory, yet they use technology and medicines, etc. created by others. Yet the Muslims still want jihad.

By the way - I will always love and respect Anwar Sadat. He's one of my heroes because he wanted peace with Israel. Any person that wants peace with their enemy - no matter what their race, religion, or nationality, should be loved and respected by all. And the Muslims killed him for it.

The Muslims have lost trust and respect around the world thanks to their violence and hatred that we see on a daily basis in the news. Yes there are good Muslims who want peace. Sadly they are lumped together with the radicals. How many Muslims have denounced worldwide attacks? How many have danced in the streets?

Don’t give us this crap about being a racist or bigot. The racists and bigots are the Muslims. I understand Muslims in Saudi Arabia, for example, will not allow churches to be built. Who is intolerant? Democracy and religious freedom dies when Islam rules. Those are perhaps the biggest reasons we are against Islam. We want religious and other freedoms in America. Look at history. Look at what’s happened in Europe. For example go on the web to “Topix Denmark,”“Topix New York,”“Topix Islam,” or “Topix Australia.” These sites will open your eyes, as they have mine. Get educated. We’re only responding to their many negative actions. Why the negativity towards Muslims? DUH! Respect is a two-way street.

We live in a world of a-holes-mainly the people who post on this forum. Once again, we jump on the we hare muslims bandwagon. We are comdemming an entire religion for the actions of a few. Most muslims are not proud of 9/11, they see any loss of life as tragic, and since 99 percent of you muslim haters have no idea what their relion is all about. It's easier to jump on the wagon than to get off you butt and do a little research before you comdemn.It's been almost 10 freakin years and you babies are still crying, and the damn
site still doesn't have a building built on it, Why?
Because of all the mamby-pamby babies out there, who think they have a right to say what gets built and where and what kind of memorial THEY want, etc.
WHAT A LOAD OF HORSE****!!! Here's the deal, you put the damn towers back up only taller. The memorial is the the fact we rebuilt the dam things in defiance of what they did,but it's too late for that now the terrorist have won,we blew it.They got what they wanted-everyone is afraid of the muslims- Congratulations America-for being the biggest pussies on the planet...

Sadat was no "man of peace." He only decided to be nice to the Israelis because for years he and his predecessor, Nasir, had been getting money for their anti-Israel wars as well as technology for hydroelectric power and other from the Soviets. He knew the Soviets were going to "call in their marker," so he decided to make nice with the Israelis and the US.

The fact that those bastards even want a mosque near Ground Zero, it's a slap in the face. These f*cking muslims need to go. I'm sick and tired of all the political correct bullsh*t, and tip toeing our country does.
Quite honestly, we shouldn't care. We have oil reserves and there's oil in Alaska. Nuke the goddamned Middle East and be done with it. If not, those scumbags will eventually spark WWIII.
This makes me mad too. We have had OUR churches robbed for crying out loud. But THEY get a police escort for their services. This pandering has to stop.

Why is it that 70% of the population cant stop a Muslim Mosque from being built at ground zero, but one Atheist can get crosses removed from a soldier's grave?

The ACLU has an annual budget 0f 45 million; its staff is stated a in addition to 60 full time attorneys with 1,000 volunteer attorneys. This is a legal war machine and Christianity is in its crosshairs. The ACLU has been against America from the beginning. The objective of the ACLU is to use the judiciary, rather than the electorate, to implement its agenda. ACLU---- ANTI-CHRISTIAN LITIGATION UNION.
