It is impossible to ban Islam, but you could accomplish 90% of it

Reader comment on item: Ban Islam?

Submitted by Charles Martel (United States), Aug 29, 2007 at 10:55

The West could have stopped Moslem immigration and visas after 9/11 and the Moslem "charity" / recruitment infrastructure disassembled through RICO statutes (which are kind of "guilt-by-association" U.S. laws that were created to deal with the "legitimate" activities of organized crime.)

Instead of sucking up to them, their organizations could have been banned, their assets seized, and all overt money transfers in and out of the US seized. This would not be banning the religion, but every expression of it that incited to violence could have been handled as a security problem in a national emergency context.

Had we had a competent President on 9/11, a lot of good could have been done immediately, and it might even had emboldened the Europeans to stand up to their Moslem invasion. The bloody opportunity was squandered, and now thousands more innocents will have to die before we get a bite at that apple again.

I wonder if our "friends" the Saudis were defecating in their robes that day, and even the idiot in the White House (whom I voted for) could have said "enough is enough -- we're friends internationally but this is MY home turf like Saudi is your home turf and you stay out just as we stay out of your sand-covered outhouse."

And I say "I wonder if " because they may have already known they owned him.

I guess we'll never get the truth about that.
