I find myself in disbelief when I hear Muslims like "RIRI" respond in shock or surprise over the caution with which we Americans approach a Muslim in our country. Either they follow their religion's tenets superficially or they conduct a ruse when they discuss these matters online.

A student of the Koran and the Sura and Hadith can not possibly think that Islam is inherently a peaceful religion. Indeed, many Mulims embrace jihad, and as Daniel Pipes has stated countless times, it is the Muslim who abides by our rules and utilizes "legal" means to effect a change to a worldwide caliphate, that provides the greatest danger to our Nation. President Bush thinks that Islam is peaceful and he is dead wrong: either his advisors are ill-informed, or he is so concerned with seeming prejudiced or biased, that he intentionally misleads the public to avoid Muslim outrage and civil violence. Mohammed wasa prophet that believed in utilizing violence and murder to attain his ends. He murdered 800 Jewish decapitants of the Banu Qurayza tribe on the Arabian peninsula in one night! He episodically killed non-Mulims resistant to dhimmitude. His followers acted in barbarous ways for many hundreds of years to present...all inspired by his writings and his barbarous ways. His followers over the centuries populated North Africa, and gave rise to the Barbary states...Morocco, Algiers, Tripoli...which George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson, in conjunction with Congress, paid routine ransom to release captured and enslaved American merchants.

Finally, John Adams with a supportive Congress spent One million dollars on the USS Constitution, a major "ship of the line" which with other war ships, and our first Marines, rightfully killed thousands of Muslim pirates who were demanding dhimmitude of the seized Americans. Adams and Washington decided to build a navy with a million, rather than pay the shieks a million dollars which they demanded. Our Marines made us proud, and are actively destroying these barbarians to this day.

Any Muslim who disagrees with this disagrees with FACT and that usually does not result in a successful debate. Islam and JudeoChristian ethics are like OIL and WATER. Our country is based on JudeoChristian ethics. Obama is Islamically trained. He studied Islam during the formative preteen years. He admitted to his Muslim faith twice in a Freudian slip with George Sephanopoulos. We must do everything we can to frustrate his candidacy for president, to in turn frustrate the world's Muslims who wrongheadedly think the USA is wrong in its approach to Israel and the middle east. I would advise RiRi to read the Koran and Sura and Hadith...Mohammed's biographical literature and the Koran's foundational documents...to get a clearer view of the danger associated with orthodox Islam.

And remember, anyone who does not perceive my concerns as rightly grave is either honestly ignorant (not an insult) or is perpetrating a ruse...something that CAIR does routinely. In summary, we are enganged in a war between the civilizations. This is indeed a holy war and we must proudly accept the title of Crusader! Saint Bernard de Clervaux initiated the Knights Templar, who met with mixed success over the centuries against these barbarians...I could go on with a history lesson, but this is not the place for such a lesson.

Suffice it to say that surprise and genuine dismay by ill-informed "peaceful" Muslims is sad but we Americans just have to get used to it and desensitize ourselves. Our Republic is far more important to preserve than the friendships/acquaintanceships of a few confused Muslims. My harshness has its base in my desire to see our Republic survive, just as the Founding Fathers desired. Islam is an inflexible religion and way of life. If someone seems to be a flexible Muslim, it is because they broke the back of pure Islam. and likely do not understand what is expected of them.
