I fail to see success in all of your points. I don't blame ALL Muslims. Syrians, for the most part, are just people who have never experienced our
way of life. I don't blame them. They are forced into a life of the very least of everything, except propaganda against the West.
I blame those who promote, recruit, train, and sacrifice the lives of young people who are searching for their own truth. By your logic, most radical
Muslims are men, therefore, do we hate all men too? Please...
I am lucky in my placement in this incarnation. Chosen or by happenstance, I am born in the land of the free and home of the brave. I travel freely,
and without armed escort, to any state in the USA that I wish. I am free to practice ANY religion I wish. I don't live in filth with little food, no
utilities, etc. I luckily and thankfully have all the comforts of life I wish to utilize. How do I blame others for wanting my station in life? I
don't at all.
My first instinct is to render aid and assistance to anyone who needs help. My heart is full of saddness for those who were lost or injured in the
horror of the Paris attack. Am I helping in any way? You bet. Do I want to take in Syrian refugees as my neighbor? They are people first, Syrians
second. I admit that, while I don't fear people, I would be naturally cautious and would take the time to know their intentions. I keep the knowledge
that they are displaced humans at the forefront...until they prove to be part of those human savages.
Look, if it were you and members of your loved ones, might you feel differently?
If we hate, they win. If we turn the innocent away, their propaganda begins to ring true. If we fail to help when and how we can, who have we
