Difference between Japanese and fundamentalist Muslim immigrants

Reader comment on item: Why the Japanese Internment Still Matters

Submitted by Barbara Hoshiko (United States), Jan 9, 2005 at 16:20

The Japanese immigrants came to this country to settle, to work, to take advantage of the privileges here, and to become part of the American melting pot. They and their offspring have become outstanding United States citizens, loyal to the Constitution. The Japanese internment is as ridiculous and unconstitutional as it always has been.

The fundamentalist Muslims, on the other hand, are here to take advantage of the privileges found here, but they do not want to become part of America as it is. They do not believe in our Constitution. They want to destroy the Constitution and instead have the Qu'ran be the Supreme Law of the Land. They may hide this goal, but, if they believe the Qu'ran, then this is their mission.

Thus, because the fundamentalist Muslims' ideal is to overthrow the Constitution and replace it with the Qu'ran, Islam is not simply another religion. It is a religion which seeks political overthrow of the government. That is treason.
