in response to reader comment: islam has no place in the USA

Islam is against all we stand for? What exactly does the United States stand for? ... Yes, I love the United States. I always have and always will. You have very negative implications of what muslims and illegal mexicans are. Why can't islam exist in the United States? According to you, it is contradictory, yet without proof, you proceed to believe that it is true.

I hope you are not using September 11 as an excuse that Islamic values clash with American values because the 19 men on those planes were different. Since when the heck do 19 men speak for millions and millions of people. That is a false association which makes you ignorant.

That would be the same thing that is going on in Europe with many countries disliking the U.S. because of what Bush does. He is our president. If he does something, the people really are powerless at that point to stop it. No matter if the people are for it or against it, if the president has an agenda and wants to follow it, he will. The American people are powerless to stop it. The only thing would be that he becomes less popular (big surprise) but legally, he is within every right to do so.

Muslims are not the cause of September 11. It was those extreme maniacs who misrepresent faith in order to acheive their own agenda. It is very sad that you have fallen victim to ignorance and in fact stupidity. Perhaps you should carefully understand the full situation before you go on to radically state those remarks. Remember, you are an extremist because you don't look at the facts, you make them up to fit your condition to prove your ignorance correct. That is the same case with the other extremists on September 11. Though you both are not the same, you can share similar characteristics and some may even look at you in the same light.
