So how about this......how about they give a reason to NOT look over there with suspicion??? How about no more Fort Hood shootings or Time Square attacks or underwear bombings or Christmas tree lighting bombings or flying planes into buildings or Fort Dix attacks or blowing up Naval ships or shooting unarmed soldiers at recruiting stations.....

If we can get Muslims to tone that down a little, THEN maybe you even have right to ask that question!!

I for one, am sick and tired of being made out to be the BAD GUY or the ISLAMAPHOBE! Hey help us not to be "PHOBIC", huh??

Police your own kitchen, guys!!!

Hey.....when you have a string of attacks where some nut blows up a crowd while yelling "Jesus is Lord", then come and see me!!

Until then there is no comparison!!

Some Muslims are anti American but that's like saying a number of Vietnamese are. It all depends on history and how American has come into contact with them. The Palestinians in that video have obviously been affected. It would be like the Afghans celebrating something that happened to Russia for there attempted invasion.

Them people in the second video should just be sentanced for the threats they are making. They are the people who give Muslims a bad name.

That video was just a sampling! You and I know it. The whole Muslim world views us as the Great Satan and Israel as Satan Jr.

I'm curious as to why you can make an observation like that so easily, yet start a thread like this one. Do you realize that you answered your own question?
