Reader comment on item: Anti-Muslim Racism?

Submitted by Sidda (United States), Nov 24, 2005 at 09:54

Sultan - lt is not Bush who makes me think that the extremist Muslims want to kill us and establish the caliphate all throught the Middle East and over to Indonesia. It is THEIR OWN WORDS AND ACTIONS. They tell us everyday through their letters, writings, and videotaped messages what their goal is. Bin Laden wrote an open letter to the United States in 1998 in which he declared war on every American MAN, WOMAN, AND CHILD; where he declared that in this jihad it was permissible to kill civilians. This was way before 9/11, Afghanistan, or Iraq. In fact, it was after we had saved Muslims in Kuwait from Saddam, and Muslims in Bosnia from genocide from Serbia (where Clinton, without UN approval and with the Europeans still wringing their hands over what to do took action). Were you against that "foreign policy" also?

We have NEVER in history had an enemy who told us so clearly and in no uncertain terms what they wanted to do to us and how they wanted to do it. Omar Bakri over in London states that they will use our democracy to destroy our democracy. I don't need to listen to any of our elected officials or terrorism experts to learn this. All I have to do is read what they say in their own words, and then look for the justification they give as written in the Qu'ran. Yes, it's all there. Yes, most Muslims are not looking to kill me and mine. But, if even 10% of the worldwide Muslim population are extremists, or at least sympathize with extremist ideology and offer support, that's millions of people.

And if you really think that anyone in our own government, either Democrat or Republican, would intentionally murder thousands of it's own civilians, you really are in tin foil hat land and there is not much to reason with. And this is coming from a life long Democrat.
