Islamic Identity in The West
Threats & Solutions
It is therefore unavoidable that as long as we live here we will, through a process of cultural osmosis, take on some of the characteristics of the Kuffar. The likeness of Islam and Kuffar is like that o f fresh clear spring water and water brought up from the bottom of a suburban sewer. If even a drop of the filthy water enters the clear water, the clarity diminishes. Likewise it only takes a drop of the filth of disbelief to contaminate Islam in the West. If we have it within our means we should therefore consider moving to a Muslim land whereby we can at least live amongst our brethren and within an Islamic society free from the contamination of the disbelievers.

The protesting cab drivers and irate imams here in the west are political animals, they'd be outraged democrats if their folks had been Lutheran.
Our problem is that we have given them and the socialists that quietly or openly support them a free pass to do so.......no body has as yet slapped them up'side the face!

There are muslims here in the US who accept all of our precepts except for support to Israel and they are part of the same society as you, me, Robert Byrd, and Jerry Falwell - the only one in that list I agree with is - me.
For my part, I'd level every mosque on the continent and I'd deport any islamist cabbie who had rejected a sober & nonbelligerent customer.
But - the point of my reply - being afraid to return to the US is NOT typical of muslim travelers.
Please do not reply, I've seen too many of your posts and should have noted the personality rather than the content of the post.
