He is giving Dhimmitude for something in return. There is a reason that there is a mosque on top of the Temple Mount, Judaism’s holiest site (it never was a muhammedan site), a mosque next to the Church at Bethlehem (one of Christian’s holiest site) and mosques all over Turkey and Europe at destroyed Church or Synagogue sites. It is called a monument to a triumphant islamic victory. And it one of two ways to convert the world to Sharia (the other way is through jihad.) You are damn skippy this these a$$holes in NYC know what they are doing, and that idiot mayor knows less than nothing.

No, Islam is real world-ophobic.

Let's check the definition of phobia.

A phobia (from the Greek: φόβος,phóbos, meaning "fear" or "morbid fear") is an irrational, intense and persistent fear of certain situations, activities, things, animals, or people.

Irrational fear? Nope. Pretty *#@$($#(! rational if you ask me.

I am not islamophobic. I am opposed to islam for many reasons but irrational fear is not among them.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it until I’m blue in the face. We ought to outlaw the public practice of islam in this country. No mosques, no cultural centers, no sharia law ghettoes. None of it. Islam is not a religion. It is an evil, intolerant, violent political, economic, judicial and cultural force that is at odds with everything the West holds dear.

There is no such thing as a peaceful, moderate muslim. They are peaceful and moderate only until their numbers are such that they can oppose their neighbors. Look at Kenya, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Sudan, Iraq and Indonesia. Christians are murdered, slaughtered in their sleep even by their ‘religion of peace’ neighbors. I can name 20 countries off the top of my head where a once complacent islamic population turned violent when their population got large enough. Can anyone name even one country...just ONE...where the muslim majority does not persecute their non-mulim minorities?? The answer is no because such a place does not exist!

>>Incidents of discrimination and bias aimed at Muslim Americans have been rising since the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

You mean like ARRESTING them when they:

1) Try to blow up planes.
2) Try to blow up Times Square
3) Shoot soldiers at a stateside Army base

In a world that makes sense, anyone that tried things like these would be DEAD by the time the cops arrive. If anything, Americans are showing incredible restraint.

As for the “good muslims” or “moderate muslims”...you earn that tag when you can denounce terrorism in the name of Allah, without using the words “BUT”, “HOWEVER”, or “ALTHOUGH”.

Islam is not compatible with the philosophy of our founding, Declaration of Independence, Constitution and traditions of these United States. Its goal is to replace these with Sharia. Islam is a barbaric social and political system in religious drag, and as such, it deserves no 1st Amendment protection.

I don't care how many "good" American Muslims exist, all Muslims are suspect.

Some people are wise enough to know what an evil Islam is. I guess you could call it fear. People should have a healthy fear of predators. Think of it like this. There isn’t a single Muslim in the world who is better off because of Islam, but their minds are too polluted to know it. Why spread that kind of insanity, especially when it involves a mosque that is going up for no other purpose than to insult Americans?

Just so you understand, the above restrictions on Islam are the universally agreed situation which ANY Imam will say is "time" to wage physical jihad holy war against a nation.

So much for being a "religion of peace".

Incidents of discrimination and bias aimed at Muslim Americans have been rising since the 9/11 terrorist attacks. But anti-Muslim rhetoric has taken an ominous turn in recent months...

Shouldn't there be some 'ominous' music? Theme from JAWS?

” a growing number of political and community leaders — some with tea-party affiliations — have begun warning of a “Muslim takeover” of America.”

Muslims are here for some other reason?

Islamophobic is used to describe people that have an unreasonable fear of Islam. Anyone that does not have a fear of Islam has an unreasonable fear of facts. There is nothing good about Islam.

Yes, and in America people such as Charles Lindbergh stated that if the Germans won the War in Europe we should try to get along with them. People in the USA were mightily pi**ed at him for saying those things once Pearl Harbor was bombed(he said them before Pearl).

Anyone who is not Islamophobic has not been paying attention or is already Mahometan.

“Islamophobic” in all its implications except “irrational” is the only rational reaction to the phenomenon.

“Politics aside...I have no love for these Muslims and their teachings and their murderous ways.
Tell them to suck it up!”

Tell them to pack it up. Ride their magic carpet back to the sandbox and ride your smelly camels.

Good grief. I thought the racist card has been played out. This is just another variation. I guess no one can every criticize a Muslim — the new third rail — or be called Islamophobic. Guess what, Mister Haynes. No one cares what you think! No one is going to be intimidated by this JournoList tactic. The truth is that Mister Haynes is just another anti-American anti-Christian anti-Constitution HATER!

Don't be silly.
I was islamophobic decades before the Tea Party Movement was a gleam in conservatives' eyes.

And proud.

I have a framed picture of Jan Sobiesky in every room of my house.

Anyone who supports and defends the Constitution must automatically be against Islam.

They stand in direct opposition to one another.

Islam is a cult that seeks to destroy America.

If the Cordoba Center is being built to express “religious tolerance”, then why doesn’t it contain multifaith alcoves? A Catholic chapel, a Jewish temple, a Buddhist temple...?
