Response to commenter Robert Smith

Reader comment on item: Radical Islam's Hypocrisy

Robert Smith said:

"Homeland Security and all of our citizens need to be aware how CAIR and other islamist groups are using the freedom of our country against us with immunity."

While I agree that CAIR seeks to undermine US National Security, I disagree with your suggestions to alleviate the problem. During the last 4 years it has been proven that the US is tolerant towards those Americans who are hostile to our Country's interests. The Bush Administration has become a beacon of tolerance against increasingly militant accusers.

So let's forgive CAIR for its hostility and criticize them strictly on the issues. They must admit the fact that Islamists are committing hideous crimes in the name of their religion. CAIR's denial of the severity of this situation is a crime.

Anger is an emotion that terrorists cherish the most. As our critics fume with hatred for us, we can only disarm them with compassion. Our military can defend us, you can be sure of that. Its up to our people to win on the homefront.
