I resist the approach. But I accept that cultures wishing to become American must either conform to the existing clearly stated laws and customs or simply understand that they do not wish to be American.
However we live in an environment were much exists to complicate the matter.
Do you not see any Muslim communities that are honorable, law abiding, and 'regular' people? I could only understand the xenophobic attitude toward them if they were invaders, criminals, usurpers, or enemies of the state.
You can't possibly be stating that these people qualify simply because they subscribe to the Koran - or claim to?
ANN ARBOR, MI – Proclaiming that times of crisis do not justify departure from the Constitution, Federal District Court Judge Lawrence P. Zatkoff allowed the lawsuit against Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and the Federal Reserve Board challenging the AIG bailout to proceed. The lawsuit was filed last December by the Thomas More Law Center, a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and attorney David Yerushalmi, an expert in security transactions and Shariah-compliant financing.
The lawsuit, which was filed in December of last year in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, is a constitutional challenge to that portion of the “Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008” (EESA) that appropriated $40 billion in taxpayer money to fund and financially support the federal government’s majority ownership interest in AIG, which engages in Shariah-based Islamic religious activities that are anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-Jewish.
An important element of Shariah-compliant financing is a form of obligatory charitable contribution called zakat, which is a religious tax for assisting those that "struggle [jihad] for Allah." The amount of this tax is between 2.5% and 20%, depending upon the source of the wealth. The zakat religious tax is used to financially support Islamic "charities," some of which have ties to terrorist organizations that are hostile to the United States and all other "infidels," which includes Christians and Jews.
America is going cap in hand to Middle East oil exporters. What government officials are not telling you is this: Islamic money comes with strings attached. Yes, sharia law “stipulates that money must not be used for a purpose incompatible with Islam” (Financial Times, April 26, 2007; emphasis mine). America will increasingly have to comply with sharia law, and what that entails isn’t pretty.
Even Boeing, the U.S. military contractor and largest aerospace company in the United States, announced October 31 that it had entered into talks with Gulf banks to obtain sharia-compliant funding.
Yesterday, the U.S. government announced it was giving aig another $40 billion loan. Taxpayers already own 80 percent of this company, but what taxpayers may not know is that aig is the mother company of aig Takaful Enaya, a sharia-compliant insurance company.
American taxpayers already obey sharia law.
Understanding Shariah law is integral to understanding the dangers of Shariah-compliant finance. Shariah law is Islamic law dating back to the 7th century and is today the law of the land in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Sudan and the law under which the Taliban operates. Recent polls reveal that only 10-15% of Muslims worldwide want to live under this all-encompassing system of Islamic jurisprudence that covers all aspects of a Muslims life including religious, social, political, and military obligations. However, with a current population of 1.5 billion Muslims, this translates to a huge pool of Jihadist recruits and supporters - a base of approximately 150 - 225 million Muslims.
He did kill an officer. Canines are considered officers just as humans are, and afforded the same rights by law as officers. Killing a canine officer carries the same penalties as a human officer.

Just because some idiot goes around waving an Islamic flag, screaming DOWN WITH AMERICA, does not mean that person represents the religion of Islam.

I am, however, saying, that they no more represent the religion of Islam than Stalin represents modern day Atheists.

It's interesting to see this thread now. Over the weekend I heard a translation of a Muslim preacher's "sermon", and he was telling his people that to worship Allah there must be bloodshed. "You cannot truely worship Allah without bloodshed".
I thought this was a rather disturbing message, personally. To hear this type thing come from the mouth of someone who is supposed to be a religious leader is rather disconcerting, at least in my mind.
So many things are happening with this political/religious group it's difficult to know what to think anymore.

And the point that most of on this thread are trying to convey to you is that your are incorrect in your analysis of Islam and should leave it to the professionals. Your opinion is as valuable as atheists are to Stalin. Please join the minority of apologists (Jimmy Carter) who will be dangerous to the well being of our great nation.
Have a nice day Mr Snarf.
