The poor image that Islam enjoys in the US is entirely of their own making. If CAIR spent more time discouraging barbaric behavior among their co-religionists, and less time whining about discrimination and image problems, they'd make headway a lot faster.

BTW, the ex-congresscritter named in the article is an unfortunate demonstration that the RAT party does not have a monopoly on moonbat dhimmis.

The "media" will not be able to change the minds of most Americans who can see through the BS they spew, IMO. Let them waste their time and money.

A phobia is an irrational fear.

There is nothing irrational about fearing a conquer-by-the-sword, jihad-oriented totalitarian politico-religious system.

Must have been that dancing in the streets during 9/11 that generated the "phobia", not to mention the actual attack itself.

Bummer, jihad dudes.

The days of stealth activities are over.

A survey conducted by Cornell University recently found that around half of Americans have a negative view of Islam...

Yep, you know, the suicide bombings and beheadings just might have something to do with creating that view. Naaah, that couldn't possibly be the case. It must be that we're just hateful people. (Do I really need a sarcasm tag?)

... but that it is wrong for Americans to rush to conclusions based on these groups that have distorted or misinterpreted Qur’anic text.

1) I agree that there are Muslim groups that have misinterpreted the Qur'anic text. These are called converts. Once it is more fully explained for them, the sleeper cell awakens.

2) I'm an American... I'll have whatever damn opinion I want.

The problem is, the so called moderate muzzies call the extremists, "BROTHER" and welcome them in to their worship, home and business.

You sleep with dogs, you get fleas.....

We did not rush to a conclusion, we were left with no other viable conclusion but one....if they are not a terrorist, they certainly are sympathizers of terrorist. To hell with all of them!

My view used to be more moderate - that is, I didn't really think Muslims shouldn't be allowed to live in this country or participate in politics - but almost five years of watching their behavior since 9/11 has made me wonder why we permit them to enter our country even to study. Islam is an insane death cult that wants to drag us all back to the 7th century, it has always been a backwards and insane death cult (even in the 8th century!), and all Muslims are essentially primed and ready to become vicious killers as soon as they get the signal.

This has nothing to do with their countries or where they come from; it's the insane death cult they belong to that makes them incapable of living with the rest of us. Remember, "jihad" is part of their religion and their scriptures, not just something alleged radicals dreamed up. Islam has been this way for 1400 years and it will be this way until it is wiped off the face of the earth in the final battle.

I'd be perfectly happy to see Muslims expelled from this country, and I suspect it will have to happen someday. But instead we have a growing fifth column here, aided and abetted by the left, and I do not feel even remotely optimistic about it.

I didn't know Findley was still around. He was a central Illinois Republican congressman who lost his seat to Dick Durbin. (There must be something in the water down there.)

While looking up info on him, I found this tidbit:

http://www.aljazeerah.info/Opinion%20editorials/2004%20opinions/September/30%20o/22%20Year%20Veteran%20Congressman%20Paul%20Findley%20Dares%20to%20Speak%20Out%20Again,%20On%20DVD,%20Exposing%20Israel's%20Lobby%20By%20Mark%20Farrell.htm

I wonder who's paying him?

Oh, BTW, Findley, CAIR, et. al. -- most Americans probably didn't think about Islam much at all until the last few years, roughly after 9/11/01. Given what we've seen--both the murderous savagery on the part of many Muslims and the deafening silence on that savagery on the part of most of the rest -- what other kind of opinion of Muslims do you think Americans would have? You call it Islamophobia, which I take you to mean an irrational fear. I say it is good, practical, common sense and completely rational.

Prove me wrong.

How about addressing the substantive problem of Moslems committing and supporting acts of violence against non-Moslems and fellow Moslems, rather than just treating this as some sort of public relations problem?

Awfully nice of us to allow their propaganda machine CAIR to operate freely in our country. Wonder what would happen to well meaning Americans trying to set up a similar organization in Saudi Arabia, or Syria, or Iran, or any other muzzie hell hole? No doubt their heads would be found in a box somewhere.

I want them out. Period. They do not assimilate into our society so I cannot trust them.

A nation of isolated cultures clumping together is not what I envision for my country.

I work in a techinical industry and work around many foreign nationals including muslims from various middle eastern countries. These guys do not actively participate in non work related social activities. They tend to keep to themselves.

I suspect they are quiet because they are not here in large enough numbers yet. They will grow bolder as their numbers increase. I never hear them say anything about world events as they occur. Their silence speaks volumes to me.

Even though I've seen no actions on their part to cause suspicion, occasionally the thought crosses my mind, will one of them decide today is the day to go to his virgins...

I'm not interested in the trip....thank you.

Just checked CAIR's Home page.

Not a word about the two Heroes who were brutalized, tortured and butchered by the followers of that "Peace-loving" religion, Islam.

So nice to know they really "CAIR."

What was listed were the following:

Court Decision Strips Rights From Foreigners

Pro-Israel Lobby Targets Professor Juan Cole

A: Muslim Youth Camp to Begin Building in July

Muslims, Arab-Americans Sue Over Re-Entry Procedures

Pentagon Calls Song 'Insensitive,' 'Inappropriate'

CAIR: Hate Message Left Near Arizona Mosque

AND THIS IS MY FAVORITE:

We have the right to disagree with any religion.
We have the right to protect our culture from interferance from non conformist foreigners.
We have the right to defend our nation from people who have openly declared us the enemy and say they will kill us if we don't surrender to their wishes.

Who CAIRS what kind of campaign Islam want's to use to promote the disguise of the Devil? They still represent the Devil and we have no choice but to resist their evil intentions.

What needs to be made very clear is CAIR's links to terrorism, and I believe a connection was found with WAMY as well. I'm not going to wait around for these ads before I do something about them.

It's a two step program.

First step is an extensive media campaign.

Second step is to behead anyone who fast forwarded through the pro Islam TV commercial.
