    WASHINGTON — Long-feared by US intelligence, Muslim radicalization is gaining momentum in the United States, hit by a spate of recent cases featuring youths recruited and trained overseas for jihad, analysts say.

    You mean we can't blame George Bush for this development?

    We need, for one thing, to quit pandering to Muslims.

    "Now, the flip side is I think that the United States and the West generally, we have to educate ourselves more effectively on Islam. And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslims Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world. And so there’s got to be a better dialogue and a better understanding between the two peoples."~ Barak Hussein Obama

    Right, but that's because of the Muslim minority population in the U.S. He never said we're a "Muslim country."

    What happened when Muslims took over Jerusalem? Should we start a Crusade of a more diplomatic sort to rid ourselves of this evil entity? Now that we have a president who seems to be a religious chameleon on the surface, but in heart I feel he's a Muslim. He hides Christian symbols in his background and bows to Muslim kings showing his true colors. It will be very hard with Obama at the helm to truly push back any growing threat against the US by Muslims. We must vote him out in 2012 if that isn't too late.:praying::praying:

    Whether directly or indirectly I don't like the implication that our President is making about the United States of America. Translation: "Let's pander to the Muslims."

    Got the following via email.
    Not being a student of the quran/koran I cannot dispute OR verify these statements, but if anywhere near factual, we have a lot to be concerned about!
    Seems that a healthy skepticism regarding resident muslims should be the order of the day rather than a blanket acceptance simply because they have not "jihaded" someone today.

    Now if they do not claim to be devout Muslims, then that's a whole 'nother matter--!!??

    Five of those guys arrested recently who went to Pakistan to try to train in a terrorist camp came from right here - Northern Va. - and worshiped at a mosque in Alexandria.

    We have a significant Muslim population, that is true. It is also true that New York is a larger Puerto Rican city than San Juan. It is our sheer size.

    However, most Muslims are not radical, nor against the U.S. To lump them all into that category is no more true, nor fair, than lumping all Baptists in with Fred Phelps.

    There will always be radical muslims in the world and our imperial foreign policy is making more of them everyday. You can't wipe out muslim radicalism by creating more radicals.

    But we sure are giving it a go.

    Ah well, at least the global corporitos are making a killing off all the killing.

    First there is no American imperial policy unless you have your own definition of that. Second people are not evil because of what others do, they are evil because that is what is already in their hearts to do. Muslims do not attack American interests because of our foreign policy. They do it because they want world domination. You are throwing the word "imperial" in the wrong direction.
