Bill Storey, you wrote: "Those communists were bad, but our Muslims are worse. The latter might not work openly for the clear dictates of the Koran - Shari'a law, theocracy, etc. - but they will not lift a finger to prevent such dictates from happening. Tthey may pretend to be good citizens, but do so only because they have no real power. Yet they smile and wink at terrorism, a fact that makes these "moderates" the enemies of all real Americans."

Ain't that the truth!!! Great post, Bill. However, I think there are no "moderate" Muslims!!! The so called "moderates" are silent partners with the more vocal radicals - the real Muslims.

You continue with with another true statement:

"Islam is the most intolerant religion or philosophy on earth. Democracy calls for freedom of religion; Islam calls for the suppression of everything except Islam."

When will our leaders and experts understand this???

"The only way Muslims can become Americans is to stop being Muslims. They can be anything else, secularists, Christians, Hindus, Shintoists, Confucians, Buddhists, agnostics, even Jews, but they cannot be Muslims and be Americans. Because of that, America should end immigration of all people from Muslim countries, and do so immediately."

Right on!!!
