JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- The dirty looks and shouted slurs started in 1993 after Muslims living here helped plan the bombing of the World Trade Center. They intensified on Sept. 11, 2001, when Muslim hijackers brought down the twin towers just across the Hudson River.

Now a third wave of anti-Muslim sentiment is washing over New Jersey's second-largest city, sparked this time by reports that the murders of an Egyptian Christian man, his wife and two young daughters might have been carried out by Muslims angered over postings the man made in an Internet chat room.

This is why I get so crazy that Bush rewards these monsters with mentioning islam so often in his speeches. He'd never bring it up if it weren't for 9/11...

He just hands them free PR.

And they should count their blessings that that's ALL that's happened to them.

He said "Muslims are getting sick of this crap" Then why are you even here, if you feel you can't live in harmony here then maybe you should leave.

That area in Jersey City has been a powder keg. Sheik Rahmans Mosque is not far from the Coptic Church. I have friends in that community .
Coptic Christians came here to get away from Islamic fundamentalism.

"Anti-Islam Bias" = MSM-speak for what sane people consider self-preservation.

"Suzanne Loutfy, a Muslim leader of the Egyptian-American Group, asked people not to blame Islam if the killers are found to be Muslim."

Muslims People are so willing to condemn an entire every other religion," she said.

"That's what the big problem is. People commit crimes; religions don't. I hope we can be intelligent enough to separate those two(unless it's in the US with white Christians)."

I've got nothing against moderate Muslims, all 17 of them. It just boggles my mind about how we can allow the others to live in this country. Who is the nimrod who approved their immigration papers? Inquiring minds want to know.

Yes I know full well.
I'm situated nearby.
And I'm upgrading my already tight security system to fullblown paranoia levels after this.

We are engaged in a holy war that we didn't declare. Some know it and are ready to confront it. Some don't know it yet and some like the major media know it but they are on the wrong side.

Muslim terrorist thugs commit some of the worlds most dastardly acts of hatred and oppression. Then they walk around whinning like the s**t they pull doesnt stink. Well it stinks to high-heaven. Islam is sowing the wind with terrorism. Someday they may just reap the whirlwind.

The author needs a dictionary. Recognizing that Islam is bloodthirsty, savage, murderous and tyrannical is NOT bias, it's reality.

IF the killers are found to be Muslim, the tolerance she seeks is going to be a very tall order.

"Bush rewards these monsters with mentioning islam so often in his speeches. He'd never bring it up if it weren't for 9/11..."

....and the two American Embassies in Africa

and the "Achilles Lauro",

and the USS Cole,

and the Khobar towers,

and the FIRST Trade Center bomb,

There's a list of about 20.

Our president is not rewarding them with his references. I'd say he is warning them; telling them straight out what to expect from the US.
