Isn’t recognizing Muzzies as being Muzzies the same thing a racial profiling?

What happened to separation of church and state? When is Christian Recognition day? Are the Buddhists covered, too?
What gives? Since when is it ok for the state to push a chosen religion on it's members?

Well you’d have to look at Islam not being a religion.

You have to remember that Cedar Rapids has the longest standing mosque in the USA. It’s called the Mother Mosque and has been there since 1934.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother_Mosque_of_America

The first one was built in 1929 in Ross, SD but it was torn down.

According to this wiki
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam_in_the_United_States

“While an estimated 10%[2] of the slaves brought to colonial America from Africa arrived as Muslims,[3] Islam was stringently suppressed on plantations.[4]

From the 1880s to 1914, several thousand Muslims immigrated to the United States from the former territories of the Ottoman Empire and the Mughal Empire.[5]”

Why they started coming over in the 1880s onward and who encouraged them to do so is unknown. Why they decided to settle in South Dakota and Iowa is another good question with no answer.

But don’t forget there is a 6,000 seat mosque in Washington, DC that was conceived of in 1944 and completed construction in 1954 and dedicated by Ike in 1957.

Not at all what I was hoping it would be — a guy running a slide show: “All right we’re gonna start with the easy ones. This slide is showing you the most common type, a dark skinned guy with a big shaggy beard, in a turban...”

The only reason I would think they would settle there is due to the fact that not many people lived out there during the late 1800s and early 1900s and as a result not get much flak from their neighbors.

I went to Drake University, from 1967-1971, and while the suburbs and rural areas were still very Conservative, I could easily see the tons’ and cities’ gov’ts becoming infiltrated by leftists, hippies and radicals. Back in 1991 just for the 20yr reunion, Drake had been expanded and radicalized so much, it was unrecognizable. Haven’t been back since.

Muslim Recognition Day?

I can usually recognize them pretty easily. They’ve got a towel wrapped pretty tight around their head. The ones just out of our prisons are a little harder to spot.

Watch for the open carry movement among 2nd Amendment supporters to be suddenly & viciously attacked by muzzies & their leftie enablers.

“Infidels” carrying guns are an obvious threat to the ROPrs whose Koran clearly states that only muzzies may possess weapons.

Imagine a `mega-mosque’ surrounded by peaceful gun-toting Christians and Jews. Especially dem JOOOOOOOZ!!!

9/11 should be Muslim Recognition Day.

Because that’s the day we recognized how evil Islam is.

http://hotair.com/archives/2008/01/24/iowa-muslim-imam-offers-statehouse-prayer-for-victory-over-those-who-disbelieve/

...The Iowa Legislature started just over a week ago and some people were upset before the first issue was every addressed. When the session began, a Muslim Imam began the prayer in the Iowa Legislature. This is where the controversy begins. The prayer asked of “Victory over those who disbelieve,” and “Protection from the great Satan” among other things...

I’m surprised the moozlums didn’t blow-up the place...and hack-off the survivors heads. Maybe that’s still planned.
