Militant Muslims and their apologists causing fear

Reader comment on item: The FBI Fumbles [on Gamal Abdel-Hafiz]

Submitted by Diana Nielsen (United States), Apr 1, 2003 at 21:22

Mohammad Siddiqui says the "FBI is creating fear"? I'd say the behavior of that Muslim and others like him are the ones causing the fear---fear that we can't trust Muslims because of their religious beliefs (and yet, we are the intolerant ones if we don't cater to their beliefs) and fear that if we don't trust them, we'll be heavily criticized and sued.

I'd take my chances with the latter option. The facts that we even have to make decisions like this and that the Islamists' apologists put us in this position exemplify the intrinsic problem. It is the Islamists and their supporters who are making this into a religious war. If it is going to happen, it might as well be now when we have a chance of winning.

How clever their mantra: they can kill and terrorize us, and if we move to protect ourselves or others, it is we who are the "evil ones"
