Double-dealing singlemindedness

Reader comment on item: Teach Arabic or Recruit Extremists?

As you know, Dr. Pipes, Muslims are a special group... That is not to say we should ignore them. On the contrary, we should be very wary of them and their "ideals."

One thing that must be remembered: "Muslim speak with forked tongue," and they make no pretense about it. They will say whatever suits their purpose, and if a lie is deemed necessary, they will lie.

First and foremost, however, Islam dominates ALL Muslims. This is why I have said or implied repeatedly that there are no moderate Muslims. Some may be more extremist than others, but their sole duty in life is to Islam. Their country, family members, personal relationships, employment all take a back seat.

Madrassas in the US and elsewhere should never have been allowed to open in the first place, but now that they are a fait accompli, they need to be closely monitored.

Outwardly, they will claim good intentions, but at some time in the future, when our defenses are down or we are lulled into a state of apathy, they will begin to behave as originally intended.

A madrassa is really not much different to a mosque, and as there are at least 1,600 across the country, why is yet another one needed? Everyone by now should know the Muslim agenda. It's working, it's growing, and it's on schedule! So why are we allowing yet another viper into our nest?
