The most destructive terrorist organization in Detroit is the city government. Just look at the wreckage of the town.

Just a question. As odious as we think this is, what laws were broken?

Sounds like unfair profiling of people who fund-raise, recruit, plan, and engage in international travel in order to facilitate Islamic terrorist murder and mayhem. /sarcasm

I think they are alleging that the above are the crimes which which this individual is charged.

"why do we tolerate muslims in any positions of authority or influence in this country? especially a position that directly impacts our children?"

It's because:

The same reason we allow Christians in positions of authority, despite what McVeigh and the Klan have done over the years. The same reasons we allow Americans of Japanese, German, Russian, and Italian descent in positions of authority.

Why don't you ask 'Jihad in America' author Daniel Pipes, since even he says the percentage of Muslims in America who would aid or participate in a terror act is less than 3%.

Or perhaps you would prefer a law requiring all Muslims to wear a yellow Star of David crescent on their clothing?

There are only two seasons in Detroit: Winter and Pothole.

Was he a member of the Clinton administration? Why are the Clintonistas not arrested on similar charges?

"DETROIT (AP) - A former Detroit Public Schools official is accused of conspiring with a Florida man in the mid- and late 19-90s to raise money and recruit Muslim extremists to fight in Bosnia, Kosovo, Chechnya and Somalia."

Interesting, Detroit has a sizable Muslim and Albanian population. To think this individual had influence in the education of children is scary.

BJ did the same, only he used U.S. taxpayers money and U.S. Arrmy on his disposal to aid and abet terrorism in Bosnia and Kosovo.

Because our "leaders" are cowards whose primary goal is not offending those who are trying to kill us.

Those "leaders" are in for quite a surprise the next 9-11.

That reason being that McVeigh and the KKK was/are in no way Christian?

FLorida again? Is there some way to sell off Florida and help the national debt? We could let some democrat power hungry leader (Hillary comes to mind) have her own country and just put up gates between GA, AL, MS and FL (this is sarcasm in case some of you think I'm serious!@)

Whatever happened to the Nation of Islam.?..
Whistling past the grave yard.. what.?.
Real Muslims have offered them their hands for them to talk too.. while buffing their fingernails on the other hand..

It must suck being a psuedo-muslim or pretender..
When the world is becoming quickly aware of what a real Muslim is and is not..

Louis "the lip" Farrakand is being really really quiet these days..
Even being a real Muslim is on the intellectual level of Richard Simmons in a chicken suit protesting fundamental morality..

Note:
(Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 516) Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "If anyone of you rouses from sleep and performs the ablution, he should wash his nose by putting water in it and then blowing it out thrice, because Satan has stayed in the upper part of his nose all the night."

Mohammad referred to Blacks as "Pug-nosed Raisin Heads". (Sahih Al Bukhary vol. 1, no. 662 and vol. 9, no. 256)

"Why don't you ask 'Jihad in America' author Daniel Pipes, since even he says the percentage of Muslims in America who would aid or participate in a terror act is less than 3%."

"Jihad in America" is by Steve Emerson.

Assuming Pipes or Emerson even said what you claim, (I recall hearing it's MORE LIKE TEN PERCENT) 3% of 6 million koranimals (INCLUDING PRISONS AND FANTASY NUMBERS) is 180,000.

As I and others here have lost family to the Euronazis, please don't compare 180,000 terrorists with millions of Jews who simply wanted to get on with their lives; or are you saying there were 180,000 Euro Jews who provoked the germans, with bombings of germans and support for an all Jewish state taking over Germany?

"The same reason we allow Christians in positions of authority, despite what McVeigh and the Klan have done over the years."

MCVEIGH, ONE MAN, with possible handful of allies, many of us believing THEY WERE MUSLIM.

And has the klan murdered 3000 people in one day lately?

" The same reasons we allow Americans of Japanese, German, Russian, and Italian descent in positions of authority.""

CRAP-WEASEL math: they do not worship a book and a rock THAT CONDONES OUR DEATH.
