    Interesting—thanks

    A very important literary concept that needs to be ‘promoted’ in our Society is Earth Participation, and Global Sustainability. http://www.global-sustainability.org/ We very much need to redirect attention to Earth as pioneer and technology as advocate. We need to get our angry earthlings 😉 visualizing an economy of civilians not land owners. Not going to get into all this here but maybe someone is in tune with this thinking …?

    Has anyone done a study on the correlation between muslim immigration in the U.S. and the rise of threat?

    Counter with a campaign threatening anyone joining ISIS. Halt all travel to the Middle East, and quarantine all travelers from the Middle East for at least one month without access to cellphones or the Internet. Infiltrate all Mosques within the United States with spies and listening devices. Do something. We invent the most sophisticated weapons and military tools in the world. Use them. Impeach Obama.

    We tried most of that already. Turned up a lot of garbage, false arrests and a crapload of entrapment charges. Do you really think the surveillance and harasssment of American Muslims ended after GWB?

    If some idiot wants to go to Syria and get themselves killed by US drones and Jordanian airstrikes, so be it. Better to get them over there than here. Kill them here requires due process or at least nobody recording it on their cellphones. To wiupe them out in Syria or Iraq it takes the occasional errant
    clusterbomb. Nobody on this side of the Atlantic will care..

    You want to put the kibosh on Islamicist terrorism here, then don’t do what the Europeans do by treating all Muslims like garbage. Continue our policy of naturalization and religious freedoms. Remember the freedoms our nation cherishes and don’t crap on them for the sake of panic. That NEVER worked.

  • There is no threat from American Muslims. We have nothing to fear.

    The threat is coming from religion itself and the cultures which insist on indoctrinating it.

    Religion is an incredibly dangerous public nuisance; like guns, gambling, smoking and drinking.
    Like those things, you have your right to it – but religion should also come with warning labels and age restrictions.

    Been there, done that. Had little to nothing to show for it except a lot of bad arrests, entrapment and well supported lawsuits against law enforcement. Do you really think the surveillance programs ended when GWB left office?

    If people want to go to Syria and Iraq to get themselves killed in some jihad, so be it. Let them leave. Better there than here. Its much easier to get rid of them over there. To get rid of them here, you need law enforcement and due process. Over there its just cluster bombs, drone strikes and artillery.

    You want to do something, then avoid doing what European nations do. Not intentionally antagonize/radicalize the Muslim population Keep up things that work like naturalization, freedom of religion, and rule of law. We don’t have to crap on our freedoms to preserve them.

    American Muslims are a pretty sedate bunch. Most come here fleeing stuff like ISIS and the like.

    So 9/11, the previous 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, the Fort Hood shootings and the Boston Marathon (all done by Muslim perpetrators) never happened?
