Reader comment on item: Why the Japanese Internment Still Matters

Submitted by Diana Whitt (United States), Jan 5, 2005 at 00:26

I am completely in favor of religious profiling, and even removing Muslims from America if it will prevent another tragedy.

An appropriate analogy would be rape. If, god forbid, I'm ever raped, and my attacker is a 6'8" red headed Caucasian male with identifiable tattoos, why would the police question Korean males, males under 6'8", women(!), or anyone without tattoos? That would be a complete waste of manpower and money, while the rapist remains free to repeat his actions.

Might remind us all that every one of the hijackers, and others who have attempted to damage our planes, is muslim. And of those, the majority were Saudis.

A basic tenet of the koran is that infidels (all non-muslims) must be given the chance to convert to islam, or executed. Now that sounds to me like hatred, not peace and love. No amount of propaganda from muslim organizations can change what the fundamentalist interpretation of the koran preaches-and it preaches death to all the rest of the world. No amount of religious freedom is worth one more hijacked plane or one more incinerated, unidentifiable body.

WWII was ended by turning several Japanese cities into steaming craters. I'm not averse to seeing this "war" end in the same fashion.
