Point well taken.

I can only try to imagine what the situation in the UK is like with regard to the Muslim commuity. If it's anything like what we in the USA have up in NYC/New Jersey or in southern Michigan, you guys have got a pretty tough fight ahead of you.

I have nothing but contempt for fellow Muslims who run like sheep around the latest conspiracy theories spewed by their mosque imams, organizational leaders and members of the liberal/leftist political organizations and their champions in the Mainstream Media who seem to see George W. Bush as Public Enemy No. 1. Believe me when I tell you that I've gotten into countless arguments with my fellow Muslims, including family members, with regard to the specifics of the War on Terror. It doesn't help...although I have come closer to changing the minds of just a few. Most people just don't like to "think outside the box". As a result, I don't see myself as part of the "Muslim community" here, even though I see myself as a seriously religious Muslim who is concerned about the future of Islam and Islamic Civilization which seems to be on the road to a slow, collective moral and intellectual suicide. It's a sad situation.

Nonetheless, we're still in the middle of a war and it needs to be fought like one. No quarter can be given to the enemy. If every Muslim needs to be screened to ensure that he/she is loyal to the home country of his/her choice where he/she immigrated to, then so be it. And if anyone starts to demonstrate against such measures, just ignore them. Demonstrations are a waste of time. Where were they when Mostapha Akkad, a famous Hollywood figure known for his movie on Muhammad (The Message), was blown up in Amman last year? Why didn't they demonstrate against his murderers?

Do what needs to be done to defeat the enemies of civilized society.

Submitting....
