EVERYONES QUICK to blame the alien, said Aeschylus a couple of millennia ago, and you might lose your citizenship rights in Ancient Greece if you called an Athenean official a Scythian.
Nativism and xenophobia had their uses in early societies when it was necessary for survival to keep the cohesion of clan, tribe, or city state. The to-be-feared other lived just over the next hill, and would be tempted to come in the night to plunder and rape unless the group stuck together.
But a couple of millennia on, if there is anything to the concept of American exceptionalism, it is that, more than any country, America is bound to become the first new global society made up of all world religions and civilizations, as Professor Jose Casanova put it. Out of many, one.
That is why Americans should be alarmed at the rising anti-Islamic tide that threatens so much of what this country stands for. The shameful concept that a building legally bought and paid for in Manhattan cant be used as an Islamic center because it stands some blocks from the site of a terrorist act; the silly claims by some members of the Texas Board of Education that textbooks are biased toward Islam; the outrageous antics of a cleric who threatened to burn the Koran; and the flap over whether some Wellesley school children on a field trip to a mosque kneeled during prayer, are all examples of a truly upsetting trend.

Islam in the US is sedition. Too bad, but it is and naysaying unfortunately won’t change that.
Sorry, not falling for your PC BS today (or any other)
by this reasoning a nation of immigrants should also include nazis and skinheads - open the gates!
If they can assimilate fine if not screw em.
A nation wanting to maintain its liberty and prevent terrorism must EXCLUDE muslims.
Just as no good stew should be without its cyanide.
The inclusion of ever increasing muslims has failed everywhere it’s been tried.
Life, liberty and the pursuit and destruction of totalitarians.
where ever God builds a church, the devil builds a chapel
All others denied!
Oh, right. Their laws punish conversion with death, forbid the building churches, synagogues and temples, impose extra taxes and weigh the worth of aliens and “unbelievers” at half (or less) the value of a Moslem.
Neah. Keep ‘em out.
Is Moslem a race, ethnicity or religion? I thought immigrants needed to state country of origin, I have never seen a country called Moslem on any map........how can they be immigrants? Just askin’
No one reads the Boston Globe except the Far Left of Massachusetts - and THAT’S pretty far left.
Typical liberal garbage. The problem isn’t with immigrants. It’s with people who come here filled with an ideology that promotes the violent takeover of this country.
