I suspect that any improvement of the Muslim image in the US will not be via CAIR.

Islamophobia

I love on liberals turn rational and normal disgust with something into some kind of disease. Today, anyone who isn't a brain-dead liberal is labled with some kind of phobia.

This is mind-boggling.
The Koran instructs hatred of all things not Muslim.
Muslims have hated the rest of the world for centuries. Now they have declared holy war on the rest of the world and are terrorizing it and....
The world is HATING THEM BACK and they can't take it?
How stupid do you have to be to expect LOVE and THANKS for hatred and terrorism??

Jesus loves you. Allah wants you dead.

It's too late now... we warned them, stop the violence or there will be a backlash on staggering proportions, and they took our patience and goodwill to be weakness. Now it's our turn, and Islam will be destroyed.

Who the hell is Linda Heard, and why is she employed with "Arab News?"

You can tell she's a Westerners by her use of the suffix "phobia" to describe us intolerant types.

"..Islamophobia is alive and well in the US.."

mmm, yep, Americans shouldn't have have attacked those poor people in those two towers...that was an act of terrorism!

mm, yep, Americans shouldn't have attacked that ship that killed 17 sailors.

mm, yep, Americans shouldn't have attacked the peacekeeping barracks in Lebanon that killed 241 Marines.

Oh no, wait , the perpetrators weren't Americans, they were arab/muslims from muslim countries. I'm sorry, I got confused. sarcasm....

Gee, why do Americans think that Islam wants to kill all Jews? Hmmm...because it's a stated goal of Hamas? Because the Koran states that the on the last day the Jews will be exterminated by Muslims with Allah's blessing? Naw, must be Islamophobia!

People are starting to get it, America really is involved in a religious war.

There is visible hated within more than one major religion, and the Osama types are providing the human race a backhand favor in blatantly revealing Islam's violent side.

The only good enemy is a dead enemy, we didn't pick this fight, our survival depends on our follow through. The press and those that practice peaceful religion of islam need to officially pick a side and we should all be prepared to meet God.

Is this true? I haven't studied the Koran extensively, but from what I've read, it all comes down to: there is no other God but Allah, and Mohammed is His prophet. I don't know if they are taught to hate infidels, just convert them or give them second-class status.

I did a very quick search, and yeah, you're right. Probably a Brit, so instead of a "Hate America" leftist, she's a "hate the West" leftie.

Al-jazeera publised one of hear rants, I discovered.

When your co-religionists are happily cutting the heads off of 'infidels' on Al Jazeera, it's going to peeve some people and they're going to react. If some bunch of Klansmen started stringing up Muslims, the Muslims would be reacting likewise. To expect anythng else is to deny human nature.

Its shocking to those twits that we have freedom of speech here. Heres an idea for them to consider. Maybe if some of the people in their cult of murder did not kill thousands of innocent civilians, some Americans would not hate them. What were they expecting? We are not the cowardly spanish.

Growing culture of hate, huh? uhh, yup, we just evolved that way for no apparent reason. But he under-estimates the situtation. We are a growing culture that will rid the country of the reason why we hate. CAIR can help by converting its assets and getting the hell out of Dodge. Culture of hate, huh? I resent that. If I was hateful I wouldn't give this primitive death cult a chance to get to the border, though I won't vouch for the patience of the rest of the folks should we have another attack here.

We should not be selfish and keep all of these phobias to ourselves. I would like to share some phobia with them in the spirit of good will from the religion of life. Jdamaphobia, Tomahawkaphobia, Clustermunitionaphobia, MOABaphobia, and Carpetbombaphobia. We should share these things in mass quantity as quickly as possible so that we can have a clear conscience.

She's a communist, fanatically anti-zionist, calls herself an "Arabist," born in either Britain or Canada, writes for Alexander Cockburn's leftist anti-American periodical Counterpunch among other radical publications, and, IMHO, has no business being posted on FR.

And as for Dr. Laura, who asks how many Americans have tortured and murdered Muslims, the fact that the US is responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of Afghans, up to 15,000 Iraqi civilians, and the torture and abuse of detainees in Bagram, Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo must have entirely escaped her notice.

Let's see, Achille Lauro murder of an "handicapped" ol' man(talking about cowardice), Lockerbee 747, Cole, Lebanon Barracs, 93 Twin Towers, 01 Twin Towers?
You dare to compare THAT to the frat boy sh!t at Abu Graihb? You must be on some good ol' Iranian green Hash to make such a statement!

Dr. Laura's question is a very valid one...name one instance where an American soldier/civilian/ militia/kkk/neonazi... killed/cut off the head of ONE muslim infidel and televised it, for everyone to see and make a note of it! Name one instance if you can!
Do not come all high and mighty about your religion vices! Spare me the pain!

You are a buch of NEANDERTHALS living among our midst. It is about time you are shown the real face for everybody to see!
