I know Muslims ... they are neighbors and friends.

I live in West Philadelphia which has a lot of Muslims, and I will assure you that the vast majority are good, polite, law abiding people. In fact the majority of the criminals we have to deal with here in West Philly aren't Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Sikh, or Muslim ... but raised in Christian homes.
HELOOOO!!

9/11, San Bernadino, ISIS, Taliban, Al-Qaeda, Orlando, beheadings, raping European women. Last check they have something in common.

Now...back to sleep for you liberals.

This country was formed by immigrants, every single one of our ancestors faced the same sort of hate. They didn't necessarily "assimilate" as others claim Muslims arriving here must do. No they very much maintained their ethnic identity. These posters totally ignore places like "Little Italy", the pocket neighborhoods in all cities with high concentrations of Germans, Irish, etc as if they did not exist and that is plain ignorance. One walk through Astoria, Queens and you would think you were in Greece. Where these immigrants chastised for not assimilating? Yep, they sure were. The prejudice they felt was overwhelming. It was wrong then and it's wrong now.

Now I already know the response, Greeks never shot up a night club. But again the vast majority of Muslims have NOT shot up a night club. So **** already about using the rare example to make a statement about an entire group of people.

Sorry dave - although most everyone's family at one time immigrated - they did assimilate and were happy to do so. The majority have maintained their ethnic identity but are Americans first. It is not prejudice to protect yourself and country from extremists who wish to do you harm. There are bad whites, bad blacks, bad Asians, ect.. but the bad Muslims are the ones dominating the airwaves around the world now and fear is a natural reaction of people - doesn't make them bigoted or prejudice.

I can see that point, I really can. Again I have said several times that our borders MUST be protected and the bad Muslims must be exposed and dealt with. But that does not mean the Muslim who we have worked with for 30 years and has opened up a convenience store should be treated the same as the terrorists and that is exactly what some are preaching.

But again the point remains there have been too many post to count here saying every Muslim must give up their Islamic beliefs if they want to be here, again with the assumption that every Muslim takes the same views that the extremists do and that is simply not true. Do you not agree with that last part?

Very shocking.
Here are some examples of the sheer insanity and American hatred liberals have.

Blacks support Hillary Clinton, yet she wants illegal invaders to flood the southern border. The illegals are taking jobs away fro lower class blacks. Same with legal Latinos in voting for her.

Women are voting for her, yet she went after the women who alleged rape against Bill. The muslims also hate women who stand up.

Gays are voting for her, yet she wants to bring in 10 million muslim refugees, who hate gays.

She, like a good Bolshevik, wants to disarm the public so only terrorists and criminals will be armed making us sitting ducks

How many times do you excuse makers have to be called out?

Here is what the ORIGINAL from the OP said:

Quote:
KMVT has confirmed that a reported sexual assault that possibly occurred near the Fawnbrook Apartments is being investigated by the Twin Falls Police Department. The incident allegedly occurred on June 2.

Twin Falls County Prosecutor Grant Loebs has confirmed the investigation to Idaho’s First News, but he says there will be no charges filed in the case until the police investigation is complete.
Please point out where it says "gang rape", "Syrian refugees", or "knife point". Please, show where that paragraph says any of that.

AGAIN, from YOUR linked article, greywar:

Quote:
An incident did occur, Loebs said, and two juveniles have been charged after authorities obtained video shot on a cellphone...

...According to those officials, three boys were involved, ages 7, 10 and 14, and the alleged victim was a 5-year-old girl. The boys are from Sudan and Iraq; none are Syrian. They are being held at a juvenile detention facility. Officials suspect the boys have been in the Uniteds States fewer than two years, but their refugee status wasn’t immediately clear to the police chief.
Liberals came charging in here, mouth foaming, screaming "FALSE, FALSE, FALSE" that anyone said anything about Syrian refugees. The OP did not say a thing about Syrian refugees...just so the anti-Americans are clear - since someone so vehemently called the OP and anyone else who discussed the story or disgust with Muslims or refugees as "xenophobes"...which is just another "racist card" that gets flung about.

No one here is "scared" of any person or culture. "Total disgust" of a culture is not "fear". Someone hacks up snot and spits it out on the sidewalk...you find that disgusting...do you fear it, too? No, you don't. Put your race card away and step off of that moral high ground that you have no right to be on, liberals.

Liberals are engaging in the Samson model: they hate America and the West so they are bringing the whole temple down with unlimited immigration.

How they can also claim to be pro woman and pro gay is beyond me. In Islamic countries women can be married off as soon as they have a period and if they refuse they are stoned to death. Gay people are murdered every day in Muslim countries. Now Liberal politicians in Europe are telling their women to dress more modest and not walk alone because it will provoke Muslim men to attack. You can't make this stuff up.

It goes much further than just a simple "Republicans don't care if terrorists get guns". If you enjoy flinging your Constitutional Rights in to the garbage, then it's no wonder you have no problem with the bill the way it was written...something that the media does NOT talk about....the WAY IT WAS WRITTEN:

https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-...ouse-bill/1076

Quote:
Shown Here:
Introduced in House (02/25/2015)

Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2015

Amends the federal criminal code to grant the Attorney General the authority to deny the transfer of firearms or the issuance of a federal firearms and explosives license to any individual if the Attorney General: (1) determines that such individual has been engaged in or has provided material support or resources for terrorist activities, and (2) has a reasonable belief that such individual may use a firearm or explosive in connection with terrorism. Allows any individual whose firearm or explosives license application has been denied to bring legal action challenging the denial.

Prohibits the sale or distribution of firearms or explosives to any individual whom the Attorney General has determined to be engaged in terrorist activities.

Permits the Attorney General to withhold information in firearms and explosives license denial revocation suits if the Attorney General determines that the disclosure of such information would likely compromise national security.

Authorizes the Attorney General to revoke firearms and explosives licenses and permits held by individuals determined to be engaged in terrorism.
Guilty until proven innocent. That's what liberals want? All in the name of "safety"?

"Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

What's the opposite of Liberty, Dave?

Spare me the "Guilty Until Proven Innocent" lecture as you condemn millions of perfectly innocent Muslim Americans.
