I am replying to the above author by the number. To look at the question please look above.

1. Muslims are people like you and I.

2. Fighting people that have not done anything is the blunt way of not protecting ourselves and future children. What happens if they win? Also there is no threat to us if they have multiple wives and produce Dozens of children. Go back over 50 to 100 years and our family size was much bigger, as big as the Muslims you are criticizing. Finally Muslims are clean and wish to be clean. The only reason that they would be dirty is the lack of plumbing and fresh water. This depends on the attention a functioning government to deliver these services.

The Muslims will quickly get it together as the western nations have. They are not guilty of the systematic slauter of millions during the 1st and 2nd world war by Christians. We need to eliminate the criminal extremists in their midst and help them evolve to stable governments with rich non violent societies. The sooner our leaders come to their senses the better. Also they as most Americans, Jews, etc. are circumcised at birth. Also the practice of circumcising women is limited to certain societies in Africa.

This brand of hatred promoted by you is as dangerous as what the Muslims are saying. Rising up and going to war with the Muslim religion and societies is wrong. I do not want to condone any of your relatives to their death in a war that does not have to happen. What happens if your son dies prematurely in a war that is promoted by you?
