Dear Michael S,

Like Electricity, Racism did not exist at the time of Jesus. It is a pseudo-scientific theory about human population differences which emerged in the 19th century in Europe, before we even had 20th century knowledge scientific knowledge of Genetics and DNA. And it was used to do harm to the Other, in the Realm of Morality.

I want to remind you that American Christians and American Jews generally believe in the First Amendment, which effectively keeps our Religion Private, whereby we practices in our respective Churches or Synagogues on Sunday or Saturday.

So the Evil of Racism is in fact given to to to reject in the Parable of the Good Samaritan. From this it follows that we do have obligations towards Muslims as Human Beings.

We also know that Muslims aren't a Race as far as Evil Racists are concerned. But the Left mostly does include our revolution against Muslim Violent Terror as Racism. Where does all this begin? I think that it begins with the Pogroms, the Holocaust, and finally the Nonacceptance by the Muslim World of Israel in 1947 when the UN recognizes Israel as a Nation State and member of the UN.

Opposition to Islam isn't Racism. But opposition against Israel is the the Racism known by the 19th century term of Antisemitism.

So, the issues of "Flooding" of our country with these Others isn't based on the Immoral Racist theories of the Right, or the Left. The issue is defending our country, under our Constitution, against the onslaught of those Peoples who we know consider their Koran the final correct Word, while our Old Testament (the Torah or rather more precisely the Tanakh) and your New Testament are alleged to be Mistaken; you and I are alleged to be People of the The Book(s).

What is weird about The Left is that it has pretended that it is concerned with the welfare of the Samaritan more than the Christians and Jews are since the days that Marx and Trotsky were active. These Leftists have mostly been ex-Christians and ex-Jews. Nasser of Egypt was probably the most influential, or most powerful, ex-Muslims in this secular Realm of Political Science thought. But the Heads of Iraq, Libya, and Syria (Father and Sun) have all been ex-Muslim but quasi-Socialists. In Iraq and Syria, it was the Baath Party which ruled. And so we know see the complete failure of the Left in the Muslim Arab world.
