Reader comment on item: [Hasan Akbar and] Murder in the 101st Airborne
in response to reader comment: Muslims not the only group prone to 'terrorism'

Your naiveté on the current state of aggression by Islam is not only sad but in a twisted way -- almost humorous. Your references to the Crusades are completely irrelevant -- as you should know you cannot use presentism ( an attitude toward the past dominated by present-day attitudes and experiences) to clearly judge what happened 1000 years ago. The United States has fallen victim to the views of you and your ilk. Ahhh, according to you we are all okay -- no need to stand for or defend anything. We were forced out of Iraq -- yes we were told to leave. In the very brief amount of time that we have been gone-- more violence (against the innocent as well) has taken place than the entire time we were present. You are a female -- do you realize that by supporting Islam you indirectly support female genital mutilation and a complete denial of female rights as you know them?

Have you actually researched what happens daily in Sudan, Somalia and other Islamic States? They are emigrating to the west in droves -- I would hope that you would not be so passive as to let your daughter and her daughter be subject to Sharia Law; simply because you and millions of other westerners feel guilty about the Crusades and feel better by turning the other cheek. Trust me this goes so much deeper than the wars you mentioned that occurred in the past. This is about your way of life, your freedom, and the generations that follow us. For example: Research what is happening in Europe at this very moment. Look at the absolute violent atrocities that are occurring in Syria and Iraq. Don't just read this and get angry....really -- do your research.

Every religion -- sooner or later -- has come to terms and been able to co-exist… EXCEPT ISLAM. Now is when your love of history might serve you well. Unfortunately you and countless others will welcome wolves in sheep's clothing with open arms and ultimately you will assimilate to their laws and traditions instead of what should happen -- them coming here and rejoicing -- as well as doing everything they can to assimilate to our ways. The only action/negotiation that extreme Islam will ever understand is extreme force with extreme prejudice. While our current President negotiates with terrorist and extremist groups --Rome is burning.
