Basically the public views muslimslike they di germans and japanese in WWII. But Muslims have done a poor job in separatimg themselves from radical muslims by not condemming their acts of terrorism strongly enough. Its like the arabg league i the Libyian war. They want to stop the libyian government but still not condone killing them because they are muslim. Kind of its alright to be bad if your muslim.

Really? Care to name them specifically or just flinging anti-American hyperbole?

I think the USA is anti-radical Islam, anti-jihad, anti-Sharia. We have nothing against Muslims who've chosen to join modern civilization, not attempt to place political Islam into our judiciary, and who speak out against the violent radical factions of Islam. Infact, the US has welcomed Muslims from all over the world.

Just another troll thread.

That's what i think. I cannot say it's a fact. Hence the thread creation.

The American Nazi Party is a group who have expressed their hatred for Islam among other things.

And that's just off the top of my head.

I saw another group carrying signs in a march saying 'stop the Islamfifcation of America'

You don't know alot of muslims nor have you spoken to many muslims have you? yet you're stille making that statement.
I know alot of muslims in person and non of them are anti-america and all of them hate the radical islam. Most of them are not radical terrorists who hates the USA. And remember that those videos came from Fox News, probably the most right-wing angeled television channel in america. And USA have gone to many wars in the middle-east which have killed a hell of a lot of innocent civilian people, which of course makes people mad at the US. But not enough people to call the muslims as a whole anti-american. There are loads of christians and whites in european countries that strongly dislikes americas politic and especially their foreign-politics but that doesn't make europe anit-american.

Is america anti-muslim? not as a whole I think. but watching this video, I am grossed out by how some people treat this women like she has no human emotions:

Until then there is no comparison!!
No but IRA killed loads of people in terror attacks, not while bombing themself but they killed alot of innocent people so there have been some really ****ed up christians aswell. And there are stills terror attacks made by christians. Most terror attacks in europe are not made by muslims but by europeans and christians.

I would not say we welcomed them for the most part there is a good deal of resentment for muslims and much resistance to allowing them to build mosques. There is enormous resentment from middle class whites, just walk into your local downtown pub and ask them how they feel about muslims in general.

I think they're Americans, just like me, and have the Constitutional right to practice their religion under the 1st amendment.

And there are good reasons for that.

Well maybe all muslims shouldn't be lumped in with the radical factions any more than the other extremists.

You are just as narrow-minded as the radical muslims aren't you? I bet you've never even spoken to a muslim. If all muslims are suicide bombers and terrorists, there would be no muslims in the world, they would have all been dead. Please read my reply to your other posts. Why do you think there have been revolutions in so many muslim countries lately? Because they are tired of opression by their radical leaders and they are tired of the rest of the world looking at them as redical western world haters because of their leaders and a few crazy terrorist organizations.
