it is called racial profiling. it is a legitimate tool, among others, to identify those who may need a closer look. as i flew out of england a couple of years ago, several Muslim looking men were pulled aside in the waiting area and interviewed by security. they, too, had gone through the screening process.
There are just as many Christian whackos as there are Muslims, perhaps more.
really, give me a few examples of Christians preaching that Jews should be wiped off the face of the earth, America is evil and should be destroyed....and Christians who are acting on that teaching. yes, there are individuals who are nut cases and do bad things, but it is not a tenet of Christianity to go about blowing things up and killing those who do not convert. it is a tenet of Islam. there are those Muslims who disagree with these teachings, but if you look at Muslims around the world, they are the minority. it is only in this country that the moderate Muslims might be a majority. Islam has been a violent religion since it's inception. historical, peace is only extended to those who convert or are enslaved.
i feel the same way about Christian as i do about Buddhists. when Christians are blowing things up, i'll worry about them.
we do have moderate Muslims in this country and they deserve our support. in return, we deserve their voice. if they want to be Americans, they need to stand up and be counted.
forgot to ask....if you don't watch TV, by what means did you form your opinion of Fox News?
