Reader comment on item: [Beslan Atrocity:] They're Terrorists - Not Activists

Submitted by Joanne Cottone (United States), Oct 13, 2004 at 08:38

Militant Muslim terrorists all over the world like to claim that they have good reasons to blow things up, kill civilians, behead people, stone people, and etc because of the actions of everyone else in the world. They emigrate to Christian based countries and demand that their way be accomodated no matter what.

They are waging jihad everywhere and calling on all Muslim males to fight for their cause and the muslim males all over and doing it. They claim that every thing they do is in accordance to the Koran. They complain about the occupation of Israel, or America or Russia and everyone else, but they don't seem to think that when they take over a country that they are wrong. ..

They demand special consideration when they do something that is against the laws, claiming it is their culture and their religion. They demand public funding for religious schools for their children. They make allegations of discrimination when a country decides that they don't want to take a risk by allowing people that may be dangerous into their country for student visas, tourist visas or work visas. They complain about racial profiling when countries take security measures. They use the Freedom of Religion law to get away with preaching hatred. They file lawsuits against anyone who they claim has "offended Islam" even if it is just a cartoon...

After 9-11 I heard over and over the rumours that the U.S. did it, or the the Jews were warned to stay at home, or even that the U.S. has no proof that Muslims were involved at all. The one thing that they all did say publicly is that "this isn't Islam, these people weren't true Muslims, Islam means peace"; then they always capped it off with "but it's because of America's policy towards the middle east." That sounds like they are condoning it to me.

I also notice how the so-called leaders of American Muslim groups like to point out Tim McVeigh as an argument that not all terrorists are Muslim. ..

The Islamists are overtaking Chechnya, Kashmir, Bosnia and Nigeria with force and violence. They openly hate the U.S. but they still demand to be allowed to come here. They are allowed to open mosques paid for by the Saudis. And our country is allowing this to go on. The American citizens are so scared to be called racists that they accommodate all of their demands. The ACLU files claims on their behalf; interestingly, I doubt that the ACLU would mount such claims on behalf of any other religious group.

They have the right to appeal deportations even when there is evidence that they are terrorist supporters. This is all insane to me. I can't stand it. I don't want this country to be worried about offending immigrants so bad that they allow us to be put at risk.
