Since I just posted about the Christian bomber, I figure it's time I offended the other side - I'm equal opportunity Now on a serious note - I have been unapologetic on these boards about the importance of controlling our immigration not for ethnic or other reasons, but certainly for cultural reasons. For example, I'm deeply skeptical about anyone who does not believe 100% in our values - and I'm talking anybody, not just Muslims. And I would demand absolute loyalty and a pledge to obey our laws of all immigrants - or your citizenship will be immediately revoked and you will be deported. I try to be absolutely consistent. I demand that we do not interfere in other countries - but I also demand that nobody interfere in our country - we get to have absolute control of our immigration with emphasis on our culture and fitting in with our system. Here's a sobering story, with some sobering statitistics. Let us make it plain that not all Muslims are questionable, any more than any other group (this is not really a Muslim issue as such). They should be treated 100% equal. Food for thought: http://www.eontarionow.com/international/2007/05/22/some-american-muslims-view-suicide-attaks-as-ok/ "Some American Muslims View Suicide Attaks as Ok Washington - The non-partisan Pew Research Center has a highly revealing new survey on Americas Muslims. It was done utilizing over 55,000 interviews to obtain a national sample of 1,050 Muslims living in the United States. Interviews were conducted in English, Arabic, Farsi and Urdu and the resulting study also draws on Pews survey research among Muslims around the world. For starters, the Pew report reveals that contrary to CAIR and the MPACs outlandish estimates of 7 million Muslims in America, the actual numbers are more like 2.35 million, based on data from this survey and the available Census Bureau data on immigrants `nativity and nationality. Heres the good news - Muslims in America are mainly mainstream and middle class, as compared to Western Europe: Heres the bad news. While Muslim Americans reject Islamic extremism and consider themselves Americans first and Muslims second by larger percentages than European Muslims, those statistics looked at through the telescope are nothing to celebrate and indeed, cause for concern among both non-Muslims and moderate Muslims. For instance, if only 47% of Americas Muslims feel they owe their first allegiance to the Muslim umma as opposed to America, that is still almost half around a million Muslims if Pews figures are to be believed. And only 43% say that Muslims should assimilate with mainstream America and adopt American customs. Moreover, the overall trend is away from the present mainstream, as the survey reveals that younger Muslims are much more likely than older Muslims to support Islamic extremism and say that homicide bombings and other terrorist attacks can be justified in `defense of Islam. Around 15% of Muslims 30 and under support terrorist attacks on civilians to `defend Islam, as opposed to around 8% of American Muslims overall and 60% of Muslims 30 and under think of themselves as Muslims first and Americans second. Only a relatively few American Muslim Americans believe the U.S.-led war on terror is about combating Islamic extremism, and only 40% of American Muslims say that al Qaeda and Arabs were responsible for the 9/11 attacks. Whats more, the percentage rises significantly with Muslims 30 and younger."
