Just having had the opportunity of having Muslim neighbors, I feel that there is a real communication gap- and that someone is playing "dumb". Who are these people that move in next to you with no furniture and who are these people that open their mouths to spit out vile things pertaining to the U.S?

I don't won't to hear it, I am tired from trying to explain that in the U.S. a dumpster is for garbage and not for the open ground, 911 is for everyone with a problem that needs police protection and if they can't find a Mosque or whatever to satisfy their spiritual needs then go home! I was terrified of their behavior and from the fact that they presented themselves to be "educated". What are they doing here and why do I not get the fact that they do not like anything American? I tried to befriend them because they had small children and I am a "sucker" for children- however, even though they claimed an education, where were the books or even the toys for their children? Why was he running a gas chain store and pretending to be so nice to everyone when he was the most nastiest person I have ever met face to face.

I have a lot of questions- but thanks to devine intervention, my Muslim neighbors practically disappeared from the face of the earth before I could confront them (when I felt ready). Creepy!

Now what? They are gone and I still do not have any answers. Why not keep close tabs on our so-called neighbor from the East? I am not so sure of their agendas.
