Dear friend,

I completely share your views. All Muslims follow terrorism - some do it actively, the rest passively. The former are called "extremists", the latter euphemistically "moderates". The difference is cosmetic, so to speak.

> Allowing people whose only true allegience is to Islam to serve in sensitive government or military roles is tantamount to suicide.

In France c. 20% in the army are Muslims. That was most probably the reason why they didn't dare use the army during the recent French intifada.
