Auburnjunky - With all due respect, that's BS. I went back and re-read all your posts to me. At no point do you say anything like you respect my point of view. In fact, by the content of your posts and the point you`re making, it`s pretty clear you DON`T respect my point - which is that it`s stupid to lump all Muslims together in the same "terrorist" pigeonhole based on the actions of a crazy few. That you go and add on with the "socialist" tag pretty much underlines that. Typical behavior for a wingnut, but it`s to be expected.
And you may care about your fellow countrymen, as long as they`re of your tribe. American Muslims? It`s pretty obvious you don`t care much for them at all. And of course you`ve NEVER said anything bad about people who live in NYC, right?
You want to try to justify your bigotry. I don`t accept that. So, yeah, I don`t think you have anything reasonable to add. And no, I don`t respect you either. At least we can agree on that

@CrakrJak: True. But you may have noticed we don't live in Iran, or under Islamic law. We live in a free society, where freedom of religion is valued. ALL religions (or none, if that`s what floats your boat).
I have noticed, however, that people like you and auburnjunky seem to be just hunky-dory if we started institutionalizing your prejudice against Muslims. Which would bring us a lot closer to the kind of behavior you find so offensive in others.
