Muslims; anywhere

Reader comment on item: [Hasan Akbar and] Murder in the 101st Airborne

It never ceases to amaze me how naive our government is. We Americans believe in religious tolerance. We offer this tolerance to a religion that clearly has no tolerance of any religion other than its own. Islam "allows" the option of converting to Islam or dying. Some of us are luckier; we are allowed the existence of Dhimmitude. We are fighting an enemy and yet it seems our leaders have not the slightest inkling as to who these people are or what their core beliefs are.

Many know that throughout Arab/Muslim history Muslims have continuously fought amongst each other. Yet, when an outside force has conflict with any Muslim country they ALL band together as one.

When a Mullah puts forth a law proclaiming that all Muslims must behave in a particular manner (ie. kill the infidel, the Zionist, the American, etc.) it is not directed to specifically named persons but rather to ALL muslims in ALL countries. These laws are to be obeyed; it is a core belief of their religion. Therefore, to me, it's not surprising at all that Muslims who are in our country would commit acts such as those commited by Hasan Karim Akbar. No one "enjoys" profiling but when we are at war with a particular religion (and yes, I do believe it's the religion we are at war with) then all people who fit that profile need to be investigated; closely.
