Why aren't we investigating Christians?



Maybe because Christians haven't declared a holy war against non-Christians? Just a guess.

You know what I mean.
Any threat should be investigated. It does not matter if they are close to the heart, down the street or half a world away.

So the politician was grand standing, so what. Are you surprised?
At the end, Radical Islam still needs to be investigated, period.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.



Well the US was founded by Christians, every value within the Constitution is a Christian principal, so of course there are no dangerous Christians...


Now I'm not trying to bait anybody here, just a a point that the religious divide between Christians and Muslims is at it's peak even within the United States. I can't even believe they are having hearings about this sort of stuff. Way to slap Islam in the face, parade them around, make them think that there is progress, only to make them look like fools in the end.

This is a bona fide Witch Hunt in my opinion. Religion isn't the problem. It's the Zealots and crazies who lead them that are the problem. People are far too easily influenced and misguided when the alternative is burning in hell.

Such is the world we live in I guess, and it won't get any better from what I can see. At least not in my lifetime.

Where is this extremism being taught and by whom?

If you can't talk about a problem then how can you make it better?


I don't think it helps the side of peaceful Muslims to claim there are no moderates and only extremists.This cruel treatment that they receive would be useful for the terrorists, right?

No one has claimed that all Muslims are extremist.

Over and over again people tiptoe around this issue.

The fact is there are some Muslim extremists. We can choose to bury our head in the sand and be surprised every time there is a Muslim terrorist incident or we can look into it.

If 80% of those convicted of terrorism were from a particular country, don't you think we would look into it?
If 80% of those convicted of terrorism came from Detroit don't you think we would look into it?

Islam is not a threat, Islam does not need to be investigated any more than blacks, Mexicans, whatever. So how about it, why AREN'T we investigating Mexicans anyway...?


While the United States has spent almost a decade chasing down an invisible, some might even say imaginary enemy on the other side of the planet, a very real war at home has been completely ignored by our political leaders and largely left out of the mainstream media. No one seems to want to talk about the fact that the U.S. is being invaded by a very real, active, and potent enemy. Headlines like "Marijuana plants seized" downplay what is happening here at home, while headlines like "Al-Qaeda mastermind behind slaughter of U.S. troops" dominate the short attention span of the average American viewer. The truth of the matter is far more chilling than any politician or mainstream media source will ever admit.

People have claimed that all muslims are extremists. Even towards me, I was just recalling some experiences.

Of course I would look into it, but as stated a conclusion shouldn't precede the investigation.

King is already biased on the issue, that fact changes everything.

According to this data, there were more Jewish acts of terrorism within the United States than Islamic (7% vs 6%). These radical Jews committed acts of terrorism in the name of their religion. These were not terrorists who happened to be Jews; rather, they were extremist Jews who committed acts of terrorism based on their religious passions, just like Al-Qaeda and company.



What was that 80% thing again?
