If you're Jewish or christian or any other religion that's just too bad. the way of the UNITED STATES now is give in to radical Islam and tohell with the consequences...."

I do not understand how call to prayer is "radical" Islam? It is one the basic practices of Islam -- pure and simple. If we have to solve the problem that affects us all we have to first identify the problem. Calling it "radical" Islam or "extremist" Islam or "those who have hijacked the religion of Islam" is hardly the way to solve the problem.

It seems that not only the US but the enitre world has surrendered to Islam -- not radical or extremist Islam -- without even putting up a fight.
