Muslims/islamists out

Reader comment on item: Islamists, Get Out

Submitted by Dan (United States), Sep 2, 2005 at 10:52

As has been pointed out in other posts, a central tenet/tactic of muslims is deception. So, I take at face value those who are "good" muslims who unequivocally state that islam is at war w the west and judge them not only by their words but by actions. On the other hand, there are "law abiding" muslims who live in western lands and who espouse comity w their host country. Nonetheless, I find it difficult to ignore the potential Trojan Horse effect these folks may represent. ... I make no such distinction between the "good" muslims and other muslims for the reason stated above. The "good" muslims may simply be the most obvious part of the disease that is islam, the rest may be in hibernation awaiting the right conditions to stab us in the back. I realize that this paints a lot of folks w a broad brush but I find it hard to think of the rest of muslims in western lands in other terms given the above. And since I believe we're in a long term existential battle, I believe caution in dealing w those muslims who have infiltrated this country is the most appropriate approach. Indeed, I believe asking them to leave would be ideal since an oath of allegience from a muslim worthless.
