This thread actually made me give some serious introspection as to my general awareness. And the answer to myself was really, "Well no, generally I'm pretty oblivious, truth be told".

People are talking about it. People like you.
And its not the first time in American history.

Its a very American trait to have isolationist tendencies, think that history and geography are not important topics, and then all of the sudden when America realizes its not immune to the global issues, hysteria results.

Whether it was the strong anti-German sentiments during and after World War I,
Japanese internment on the west coast in World War II, or Mcarthyism during the Cold War.

Being vigilant and patriotic are good things,

but spend some time reading and learning about what Islam is about, learn the history of the middle east, the Ottoman Empire, how the Arabs were promised indepedence for their helping the British defeat the Ottoman Turks, and the region was carved up into Mandates, (the countries known as Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan, and Israel) were arbitrary lines in the sand drawn not understanding the culture, etc.

The past is the key to the present. And if you simply don't have time because you have better things to do, that's fine, but should you really have strong views of an issue then, if you're not willing to do the research?

I don't think this thread has anything to do with Chicago.

As to the person making a speech, I think the First Amendment has something to say about it.

If I disagreed with the person I don't think I would be demonstrating in front of or boycotting the venue which rented space to him or her.

What an....animated post.

That YouTube video is pretty offensive. This meeting is a group whos goal is to combine and bring together all the Islamic countries/groups of the world. The YouTube video makes it out like this is a conference for killing children and murdering the West.

It's a religious group, there are religions all over the world. Just because an Islamic group is meeting in a mostly non-islamic country doesn't mean we need to throw on our white hoods and burn things to the ground.

I think we'd all be a LOT better off if religion could be a PERSONAL thing, and our society and civilization could finally work together on human and tangible issues, and not just faith.

THe great thing about America is the freedom to practice religion, which is what those folks are doing. I HIGHLY doubt that its a meeting of radicals.
