Hi , Carol !

Thanks a lot for your reply and my best regards to your husband!

> Thank you for your comments. However, my husband, a retired history professor, tells me that these people cannot be tried for treason unless they have committed an "overt" act of treason....trying to overthrow our government. What we find outrageous is not treason, although I tend to agree with you. We do not know what goes on behind closed doors and treason is difficult to prove.

I am afraid that when the powerful guys in the administration commit an 'overt' act of treason it will be too late to save the Republic. As long as they feel vulnerable they will act behind the closed doors. From what they do overtly, I can't help but conclude they care much more about what their Moslem "friends" desire than than what the American citizen thinks. It's very alarming, indeed.

Anyway, I was musing on one thing too. What might the results of an America-wide referendum "Can a US president enter a mosque after 9/11?" be like, if such a referendum were ever conducted? Would G. Bush respect people's will, if most US citizens answered : "No!" (Or even better "Stop selling this nation to the Saudis") ?

> To me, it comes very close to looking like treason when one in the government defers to the religious customs of a group of people dedicated to wiping us out and replacing our government with their ideas and views from a Muslim standpoint.

Exactly. And I would like to quote something I read on a different forum. Bush may be as usual unaware of that, but the "great' prayers he heard in the mosque and which are repeated there five times a day are exactly the same prayers which were the last thing the terrorized American passengers heard on the planes on the morning of September 11 , 2001.

For this reason I will never take off my shoes to enter any mosque and hearing the Moslem call to prayer I will always tell people to associate it with the day of the great American national tragedy. "Remember ! During the next terror attack the same prayers of "a great religion" will be prayed. I can only hope that this time also G. Bush will be among the passengers.

Best,
Ianus
