The Screamers of Peace

Reader comment on item: British Opinion Surveys from an Islamist Hell

Submitted by Arlinda DeAngelis (United States), Jul 25, 2005 at 20:04

"We are the religion of the peace," they scream after every bombing. The left shouts "Not every Muslim wants to kill us." Not every Muslim does but every killer with a bomb is a Muslim with support from a Muslim enclave and money to carry out their attacks from Muslim clerics. Are we to derive comfort from the screams or the the behavior of Muslim communities.

I sure as heck don't.

I work directly across the street from the Islamic Society of America on the posh upper East Side of Manhattan. Every Friday this so called legitimate organization has an eating fest on the street. Carts of food and camaraderie among the men. Nothing for the women who are separated and must stand aside in their berkas isolated and unfed.

While all of this is going on, I watch from the office balcony on the fourth floor directly across the streets as thousands of handbags and watches and shoes being carted out of the Society in 6 ft bags stuffed with the items which are then loaded on trucks to be sold by illegal street vendors on every other corner in Manhattan. Cash and no taxes is what fuels this entrepreneurial venture. Now why would a legitimate society be engaged in illegal street sales of goods? More important, why is it permitted. I called the Mayor's office, the police department and the Justice Department and the Islamic Society is still at it every prayer day Friday. What do you think they're doing with their ill gotten gains? Ya think the society is building centers of learning, hospitals and bona fide institutions to help their adherents prosper and understand democracy to become good citizens in their new found homes ?

Their website claims to be a legitimate organization albeit helping people through illegal activities. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired of watching this religion of peace scamming and lying and killing people. I wouldn't believe one official and non-official word of what they say even if they're tongues came notarized. THEY KILL PEOPLE.

Dr. Pipes said months and months ago that England's laws on terrorism in the homeland were lax and non-existent, Just like in the US before September 11th. He was right. As long as we coddle the terrorists, as long as we put civil rights before personal and national security, we put a weapon in the hands of every terrorist and there are so many of them.

Does anyone here think we can stop them after we've armed them?
