    "Why is Islam singled out?"

    Well, I guess it's because our nation is at war with Islamic factions that have the avowed purpose of destroying America.

    True, that doesn't mean Islam itself is to be feared, and certainly doesn't mean all Muslims are evil. But it's a fact that Islam IS associated with terrorism, probably because several heinous acts dating back to the early 2000's have been the avowed work of Islamic terrorists.

    It pays to be careful, a lesson I hope this country has learned.

    "Why is Islam singled out?" Not all members of Islam but RADICAL Islam. A large number of OTMs (Other than Mexican) illegals by the Border Patrol caught along the Texas - Mexico border are Muslim terrorists from Afghanistan, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, etc. These countries are not even on the same continent as the United States. They came in through Mexico.
    "A jacket with patches from countries where al Qa'ida is known to operate was found in Jim Hogg County, Texas by the Border Patrol. The patches on the jacket show an Arabic military badge with one depicting an airplane flying over a building and heading towards a tower, and another showing an image of a lion's head with wings and a parachute emanating from the animal. The bottom of one patch read 'martyr,' 'way to eternal life' or 'way to immortality.'"
    See Page 28
    "Members of Hezbollah, the Lebanon-based terrorist organization, have already entered to the United States across our Southwest border." Page 29
    With the United States Border Patrol tied up baby sitting over 50,000 illegal children they find this an opportune time to sneak into our country.

    What part of 'radical Islamists terror' is difficult to understand? How can anyone even remotely manage to draw from those words that the entire Muslim religion is in play, or that other types of terrorists activities are condoned, since not specified?
    Do we conclude from the opposition, then, that they support 'radical islamist terror'?
    Or just unable to figure out what the words mean?
    This is just another variation of the 'racist' label that is falsely and meaninglessly tossed out at every opportunity in an attempt to silence criticism of...whatever such people want silenced.
    Now, it's 'Muslimism'...
    Can't fix that...

    I'm not happy with any terrorists, not even Nurse terrorists. But the groups you mentioned have not hijacked jets and killed thousands with a single strike - yet. When they do then I'm certain something will be said.

    This is rich. Nasrullah's organization, CAIR, has known terrorist ties - google them. We allow them to operate in the U.S. because of political correctness, but let's face it; If this were a Christian organization operating in the middle east, she would've already been executed. As the saying goes, not all muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are muslim.

    Satan is busy, he's trying to back us up into the crippling clutches of "APATHY" by racial protesting and persecution! Be vigilant, be sober folks, for there are "WEEDS GROWING AMONG, AND AROUND THE WHEAT"...in this country.
    Don't get caught sleeping, when you ought to be watching and discerning! All these sniffing(s), and crying(s) of foul concerning this BORDER CRISIS is facilitating Al Qaeda and Taliban TERRORRIST Cells being established in this country! I hope nobody believes me. Just wait awhile and it will all come to light. Americans will die because of it all, but ....it will come to light! Remember now, you heard it on this forum.

    That reminds me of my college days at SHSU. A Palestinian student was ahead of me in the lunch line at White Hall. He was giving the serving girl a difficult time because the cafeteria was serving sausage that day. He complained that it probably contained pork and that Muslims could not eat pork. She explained that she just worked there and had no control over the menu. He finally told her "I'll just take the steak." She started to explain that it was not steak but he demanded "Just give me the steak, woman!" So she put the pork chop on his plate. You can't please some people.
