There is no such thing as a "Neutral" citizen

Reader comment on item: The Snipers: Crazy or Jihadis?
in response to reader comment: Patriotism vs. "Neutrality"

Submitted by Charles Martel (United States), Oct 29, 2002 at 14:09

No, you cannot be a "neutral" citizen. If you are a citizen of the US and your country calls you, you must answer the call.

And the fact that you bring Israel into this, without any recognition that there are two sides to the issue, clearly demonstrates that you are not able to be "neutral."

If there were an Islamic uprising in the US, particularly to Islamicize America, would you be neutral then, or would you rise up to support and defend the Constitution against the Islamists?

Thank you for pointing out how neutrality does not exist.
