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

Submitted by Raymond Low (United States), Mar 26, 2003 at 16:59

First, I wanted to say I enjoyed Daniel Pipes lecture last Friday at Temple Emanu-El in San Francisco.

As an Asian immigrant, I can swear that I love this country and this country alone. So is my allegiance--to America alone. I hate to say this but I'm starting to feel weary and highly suspicious of Muslims, American citizens, immigrants or visitors. Living in San Francisco, my feelings are anathema and prosecutable as a hate crime but I can't help but feel this way. After all, I am an intelligent person and am able to observe a pattern of "hate-america" violence among Muslims with the socialist/liberals of SF/Berkeley coming in at possible close second.

I wish the government would recognize this as a problem and quit playing PC games especially when American lives are at risk. I hope this is just public relations showcase while they are doing some serious work of scrutinizing such Muslims in sensitive areas of government and military defense.

Lastly, this is not a racist attitude. I want so much to be able to trust Muslims but their incessant whining of racism and not condemning acts of violence is leaving me really suspicious and angry.
