Thats right, lets lock them up.

After all, one of them committed what could be seen as a terrorist attack yesterday. Perhaps we should deport them to Guantanamo, or another country entirely. Its the only way to keep our courthouses safe! We can strip search all of them coming into a courthouse, but you never know what they might have hidden on them.




Of course I'm not serious, but it seems to be how many people seem to over react to situations like this when its a Muslim going nuts and killing people.

Yeah, their reason may be different, but psychotics are psychotic, there is nothing we can do about it. We can either ban everyone from doing everything, or live in the world we have, making small improvements that don't infringe on anyones civil liberties.

On the surface, you would be right. What you are forgetting is that - quite unlike your run of the mill psychotics who tend to be 'loners' - radical islam is an organization that some could say has infiltrated the 'regular' mosques. At anyrate, they are there and they are allowed to spew their hatred and dangerous rhetoric as was found out in England. The 'regular non pyschotic' muslims looked the other way as that was going on. Also, there was a book written prior to 911 called 'American Jihad' where a reporter went undercover and infiltrated American mosques and repeatedly heard the call for jihad.

Do some serious math on people killed by muslims and people killed by 66 year old men then give us your opinion.

I thought we were only going to profile the old men for health care rationing?

Not just locking them up!

Where is their family? Let's get them too. What kind of car does he drive? Let's shut them down. What religion is he? Let's persecute them. What is his favorite color? Let's ban it.

True...but you ignore the facts. Fundamentalist Islamic suicide bombers aren't 'psychotics'...they're doing exactly what they SHOULD be doing, according to the demands of their particular interpretation of their religion. They're doing what OTHER members would LIKE to do, if they only had enough single-minded resolve. They're loved and admired as 'heroes' to huge segments of the population in their homelands. Often, they're called 'martyrs'. So admired are they that some parents encourage their sons to follow in the footsteps of these people. Psychotics? Hardly...not by the standards of their society.

If hundreds of Americans thronged the streets, chanting, shouting, and 'singing the praises' of 66-year old men who blew themselves, and all those near them, into eternity; and if these admirers 'closed ranks' to defend their 66-year old 'heroes' and protected them from prosecution, threatening "death to any police officer who arrests my hero"....then yes, as you say, we probably would....and should...take a VERY hard look at 66-year old men..maybe even look at 64 or 65-year olds as the next 'potential' bombers.

But this is NOT the case, and therefore your suggestion is ludicrous, (albeit entertaining).

And by the way, we don't "Lock 'em all up" in the case of Muslims, either. We take notice of them.(we take notice of EVERYONE these days), and if certain Muslims exhibit certain 'red flags', we may take a second look. We don't 'Lock up' anyone, other than a rag-tag few, after much deliberation.

And there are about 1.2 billion Muslims in the world. The portion of lunatic 66-year-olds per regular 66 year-olds is actually similar to the portion of Jihadists per regular Muslims.
