If you really believe that Americans would sit back and let this country become a muslim territory you must be over 55 years old. This is the thinking I was talking about. Nonsense, he is'nt muslim and why should it matter if he was. God and state are separate, plus this would have to be agreed upon as law by congress.

I personally know many muslims and there are different kinds of muslims, not all want world domination sir and the ones who do are hiding in caves. Now what you should be more concerned with is the way the government is handling the economy and gas prices.

Sir I do have a concept because I am muslim, people like you need to get facts and not believe everything you hear. Everyones indifferent about something they don't understand, but instead of trying to understand we just bash it because it's different so it's wrong. It's not your fault and more than you think that way also, too bad people in 2008/2009 are still so closed minded, but like I said this generation will soon be over and then maybe we can finally make this world a better place
