Religion of Peace has a chance to denounce terrorists among them. Let's see what happens.

Religion of Peace has a chance to denounce terrorists among them.

Silence in the face of terrorism, must be construed as
1. acceptance
2. Approval, or
3. BOTH.

I am quite certain there will either be silence or some bizarre form of justification for Islamic terrorism...

Which puts us back at the three choices.

Such a forum will change nobody's mind- only give the pro-terrorist nitwits a chance for face-time on a camera, thinking people will be stupid enough to believe their "religion of peace" BS.

Islam is a religion of DEATH.

Islam is a religion of ignorance, torture, terror, and murder.

If there were a better representative for the "Emporer" in "The Emporer is wearing no clothes," then I haven't seen it.

It is amazing that Islam walks around with this big, naked problem called TERRORISM hung around its neck, yet thinks it is pure and clean.

Phttoooey. Islam is all about terrorism. It is not compatible with civilized society.

His classes on the life of the Prophet Muhammad, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him

His teacher was none other than his father, the late great Imam of the Grand Umayyad mosque of Damascus, Sheikh Ibrahim al Yaqoubi, May Allah have mercy on him.

Can you imagine the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reporting a conference of Christian scholars with this kind of assiduous respect for religion?

This may possibly be a genuine conference on peace and justice. If so, I'l be very pleased to hear it. But most academic specialists in Islam in America seem to be in sympathy with the terrorists.

Justice, freedom, and peace?

True Islam doesn't embrace these three. Only faux Islam Lite.

Sounds like a target rich environment. But so far, it's only been the Muslims shooting us. Too bad we aren't shooting back.

You know, it would be interesting as a woman to dress up in a burqua and go to this "conference."

I'm surprised it's at RIT. I went to college there and it's pretty much a technical/engineering school. The College of Liberal Arts existed just to round out the technical degree.

Seems like University of Rochester would be a more likely sponsor.

The link to the conference has a scrolling marquee: "Islam: a Religion of Justice, Freedom and Peace". This guy (from California) says so.

What really really hard questions do you want answers to? The fact that Islam wants to take over this country and the Blind fools in govt are going to let them. They think islam is peace and we are not in a holy war and we have no clue who the enemy is (BECAUSE BUSH REFUSES TO NAME THE ENEMY)

Its plain as day what the answers are TO THE REALLY HARD QUESTIONS.

The threat among us (ISLAM)

One of the advantages the United States has had over its enemies is that that they openly state their goals. One of the advantages our enemies have over the United States is that too many Americans don't take them seriously. We prefer the short-term comfort that denial brings. We fear being labeled "bigots" more than we fear the intentions of those who hate us, and so we are reluctant to speak ill of another person's faith, unless it is the majority faith.

Last Saturday (May 17), the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) opened its newest office in Columbia, S.C., a Southern city with strong Christian roots. The stated purpose of organizers was to discuss "the obligation of Muslims to participate in public affairs, CAIR's achievements and future goals of the organization."

Among those "future goals," according to a CAIR press release, is the elimination of references to "Judeo-Christian" when describing the heritage of the United States. Instead, CAIR and other Muslim groups prefer "Judeo-Christian-Islamic" or "Abrahamic." CAIR wants this new phrase used "in all venues where we normally talk about Judeo-Christian values, starting with the media, academia, statements by politicians and comments made in churches, synagogues and other places." Notice the absence of the word "mosques "in this statement. Muslim groups want Jews and Christians to tolerate them, but there is not a similar call for mosques to include Jewish and Christian beliefs.

You do not have to believe in conspiracies or be a bigot to realize something important is happening with this statement and in these political meetings. As Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum, wrote last month in the New York Post: "(CAIR is) on the wrong side in the war on terrorism," consistently defending militant Islamic groups and dictators, while "denouncing" terrorist acts. Pipes refers to a story reported in the San Ramon Valley (Calif.) Herald about CAIR Chairman Omar M. Ahmad, who told a crowd of California Muslims in July, 1998, "Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran … should be the highest authority in America and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth."

Thanks for the info.

I probably would sign up for Islam, since I'm very pro justice, freedom and peace. Unfortunately, I'm going to the Belmont Stakes that day.

Golly, since Cal Thomas says so, it must be true.

Instead of asking the questions *YOURSELF*, you rely on someone else's opinion to form your own. You've complained for MONTHS about Islam. So now's your chance to either put up, or shut up. *YOU* have the chance to ask the questions and all you do is hide behind someone else's thoughts.
