Why does it matter?

I dont freak out over how many muslims there are here. Let them come in large numbers if they want. Most muslims are peaceful and law abiding citizens.

Exactly!

Islam is a widely misunderstood and maligned religion. In the U.S. media there is a lot of attention put on the minority of fundamentalists who are totally out of line with the mainstream Islamic faith.

It's akin to saying the Westboro Baptist Church speaks for all Christians. Totally untrue.

True Muslims are some of the most peaceful people you'll ever meet.
Muslims who are in politics use their religion and tweak it to try to take over the world.. It's brainwashing everybody. Innocent Muslims are the last thing we need to worry about.

I don't understand how muslims are going to take over the USA.

We would need to have 1000% growth in the muslim population, tens of millions of people, to even reach around 1/5 of the total population.

Not to mention just because people might be Muslim doesn't mean in any way that they're against the rest of the population. 99.99% of them are here for the same reasons we all are. We're in this together as a country.

Muslims are definetly the most misunderstood group in the US. And discrimination against them seems almost acceptable to me. If I hear a comment about how all the muslims are awful and I try to say something about it, many if not most people will tell me I am wrong and that I am a hippee optimist.

And by the way, as Indians become assimilated into the US, there kids will stop following their respective famililies religion just as much as the rest of the population in America. I personally know many Indians, whether the have parents that are Hindus or Sikhs, that are not or will not follow the religion of the family.

By that same logic, we should be concerned about Christian terrorists because of the the Oklahoma City bombing...don't forget about that one.
