You really should post some of the crazy things muslims have been saying in this country say before 1970. When Islam in this country developed into a force or a platform it was a black activist platform racist and vindictive.
Don't be dumb. Islam was not Black Activisit...Black Activist was often Islam....KKK Christian...Does not make Christians KKK.
You understand the difference? Honesty should supercede idealogy or rhetoric. You don't do yourself favors by pretending to be ignorant to make a point.

I regret to inform the religious, who have chosen to not get along with one another, that the non-religious have come to a consensus in regards to this and will be opening the FEMA Camps forthwith to beginning housing and exterminating you all.

My dad was born to a hardcore super Christian, gun toting, homophobic KKK family in Indiana.
Given his time in the military, extensive knowledge, and love of learning new cultures, he thinks Christianity is more fantastical than real. He likes Islam much more because it hasn't been miscued by the masses over thousands of years.
He's still a gun toting homophone but some things you just can't change I guess.
Might I suggest another thread for you to read?
It's this one here: www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread611427/pg1
I hope it clarifies a few misconceptions you see on the news.
Remember who the news is working for.

To the haters, I realize you don't care about anything I say, but I'll just say one thing, don't let your hate grow so much that it blinds you and destroys your values and self. All I can really say is good luck, I hope for peace not confrontation, not terror, not fear. That's all ... I hope me saying "I'm Muslim" did not make you immediately close your eyes, plug your ears and seal your heart to anything I have to say.
Anyway, whether some of you are trolling or not, whether you are looking for a certain response, nor not, I can't free you from what response you want, or the hate you feel, all I can do, is wish you luck on getting past it in the future.
First in Europe and now in the United States, Muslim groups have petitioned to establish enclaves in which they can uphold and enforce greater compliance to Islamic law. While the U.S. Constitution enshrines the right to religious freedom and the prohibition against a state religion, when it comes to the rights of religious enclaves to impose communal rules, the dividing line is more nebulous. Can U.S. enclaves, homeowner associations, and other groups enforce Islamic law?
Such questions are no longer theoretical. While Muslim organizations first established enclaves in Europe, the trend is now crossing the Atlantic. Some Islamics community leaders in the United States are challenging the principles of assimilation and equality once central to the civil rights movement, seeking instead to live according to a separate but equal philosophy. The Gwynnoaks Muslim Residential Development group, for example, has established an informal enclave in Baltimore because, according to John Yahya Cason, director of the Islamic Education and Community Development Initiative, a Baltimore-based Muslim advocacy group, "there was no community in the U.S. that showed the totality of the essential components of Muslim social, economic, and political structure."
How Muslims reconcile Islamic polity within the confines of Western liberal democracy is an unresolved issue. This process will take years to evolve and is likely to convulse in further violent episodes. Presently, many Muslims reject wholesale the notion of a dominant secular law and instead seek the imposition of a pan-Islamist state under the guidance of Shari‘a. These Islamists view secular modernity and the democratic practices of radical egalitarianism, individual rights, and free exercise of religion as a direct and substantial threat to their belief system, and they are intent on employing violence against the West for the foreseeable future. The remainder and majority of the Muslim world must reject nihilism and engage in widespread debate regarding Islam's role within the world community.
The local planning commission in Little Rock, Arkansas, might proceed with the proposed Muslim enclave, but the Arkansas courts and its legislature should not abdicate its responsibilities to ensure that Western liberal rights and protections remain supreme. The government should monitor both the rhetoric and behavior of these communities. As the Supreme Court stated in Cantwell: the freedom to believe is absolute, but the freedom to act, in the nature of things, cannot be, especially as to the safety and preservation of the American democracy.

You know my friend, those foxnews references are really getting just as old as calling people racist when you don't want to hear what they have to say.
Please don't assume I watch foxnews because I don't, I'm more exposed to cnn when it comes to network news but I mainly rely on the internet.
If you're going to correct me then at least please provide some sources.
Better yet, let's make it official.
Given the Muslim population in the world, what ratio or percentage do you think have actually spoken out condemning the actions of the extreme fundamentalist Muslim?
You are allowed to Google and Snope and FactCheck, if you wish.
