in response to reader comment: No Need to Worry Part 2

While I may agree with you about radical Islam, I don't think we are at the point where one can compare Islam in and of itself with Nazism. Not all Muslims are nazis or even close. You are sounding incredibly alarmist.

What may I ask do you propose to do? Round up everyone who is an Muslim and put them in a detention camp? Deport them? I mean come on.... You say that the media is corrupt and I agree with you, and I agree they should take a harder stance on radical islam, but to infer that all Muslims support terror is quite wrong and is dangerous thinking. I don't want to sound condescending but really, we are not at the point where ordinary muslims are a threat and any policies that single out ordinary muslims and punish them for simply being muslims is the day that that country no longer gets to assume the moral highground by calling itself a liberal democracy.
