"for one reason is that many top government officals are muslims."
What top officials? Ted Kennedy? Hillarious Clinton? Islam's stated goal is to conquer all other nations by any means neccessary. Period. If these government officials are not loyal to the U.S. of A. then they need to be interned or deported.
"you have to remember muslims have been in this country just as long as anyone"
Indeed, according to the revised history being taught by the liberal post-modern marxist teachers, this country was founded by muslims. George 'Mohamed' Washington was the first president and the constitution was originally based on Sharai law and not Judaeo-Christian truths, which is why liberal left-wing whacko judges are trying to re-define the constitution today. We got it all wrong for all these years. Why, even the west was won by muslims; Wyatt Ahmed Earp, Wild Bill Jihad Hitchcock, Davey Arafat Crocket, (the saying was "Allah Akbar" and not "remember the Alamo"), and Daniel Hamas Boone were some of the heroes of the wild west.
Just because muslims have been in 'this country' just as long as anyone does not mean that they have the right to destroy it from within. Last time I checked, the U.S. of A. was not a union shop, so seniority rules do not apply to those who are there the longest.
"plus do you know how many people you are talking there is three out of five percentage per person in america being islam is the second largest religion in america and fastest growing."
Muslims are still, by far, a tiny minority compared to christianity in the U.S. of A. True, there are still a lot of them, all the more reason to intern them or deport them rather than spend all that money profiling and survailing them. You support my argument by stating there are a large number of muslims in the U.S. of A. The logistics of watching them are enormous and one mistake could cost many lives. You have to balance the number of muslims living in the U.S. of A. with how many people could actually be killed by any number of those muslims residing in the states. What if one of them strikes out at the local bar and decides to cash in his chips and get the 72 virgins? What if he detonates a nuclear bomb in a major city? Aren't the lives of those millions of innocent U.S. citizens worth the temporary detainment/deportment of a few muslims? Many Japanese were interned during WW2 so we know it could be done and it works great.
"i understand your concern but not likely"
I have to agree with you here. It's going to take something far worse than 9-11 to get the majority of people on side with interning or deporting muslims. There are too many Michael Moores out there who hate the U.S.A., christianity, and the Judaeo-Christian principles on which America was founded.
Americans will have to decide how much risk they are willing to tolerate in order not to offend the muslim minority. I just hope there isn't another 9-11 to shock them into making the correct decision.
