It sounds more like The New Republic's casting Grover's activities in their most negative light. As there MAY be as many Muslims in the U.S. as there are Jews, and as our economy depends on oil from Muslim countries, and as we are now faced with the necessary task of eradicating the threat of Muslim extremists, we also have the incredible opportunity to reshape the cultures of the Arab states in our favor.
Grover and the Pro-Muslim forces in this country are now suffering an embarassment, as did the Pro-Israel lobby did in 1967. It will pass, and America will benefit enormously from the coming, and long overdue, new balance.

So old Grover's now sitting in his armchair screaming. Bet he stays in his pajamas all day more often than he used to, too.

I am offended with people here playing politics with this. I don't care about ancient tribal rivalrys between Jews and Arabs, I care about a group that calls itself a religion but operates as an organized crime group. I have heard there are several places in the Koran that advocates violence in the name of allah. I have also heard that if you try to leave islam, they will kill you. This sounds more like a soprano's plot than a true religion. And if Rabbis were getting up in temples advocating violence to innocents I would be all for escorting them out of the country also.
What I am looking for, first before we let these political types start playing, is a clear, strong condemnation of the 9/11 acts by muslims here and abroad. I am not hearing that; only weak, qualified, disapprovals when the cameras are on and giggling high fives when they are off.
If they are going to be that way, OK, but I will do whatever I can to not have them in my party, not have them in my country, and not have them on my planet.
I don't think the "balance" you are hoping for, with greater Muslim influence in the American political scene, will occur, as Americans wake up to the fact that radical Islam is mainstream Islam in most of the world, if not here as well.
Dream on, camelboy.
