    In 2001, there were none.

    (Copyright 2002, so in less than 1 to 1-1/2 years, over 1000 Somalis moved there)

    Maine is probably going to be the Somali terrorists, and other terrorists', R & R area.

    &lt;edited only to shrink link - LE&gt; </font>[/QUOTE]I would say that their earlier complaints were correct. It sounds like the mayor is a bigot to me. If these folks are there legally, and haven't broken any laws, then the mayor and all the other bigots in that town should leave them alone.

    That's an odd question - would you explain?

    Probably referring to the Muslim political pressure (including massive letter writing campaigns by CAIR and MPAC members) put on Dell for firing Muslims who walked off the job for evening prayers. Dell ended up backing down.

    Here's the story:

    And here's CAIR web site story:

    Thanks for the reminder, Ben.

    Wasn't that incident in Nashville, Tennessee, not in Maine?

    Yes, but Ben brought it up. [​IMG]

    It will be interesting to see what happens in Maine when it comes to employment and prayer times.

    LE,

    If these folks are there legally, what do you think should happen when it comes to employment and prayer times?

    Frankly I believe we should stop all Muslim immigration to this country and keep the radical clerics out of our prisons, unless they occupy a cell.

    They should do their job. They are in America, not Saudi Arabia or the Muslim country they came from. They should stay in their own countries or assimilate. It shouldn't be the other way around. Period.

    Yes Daisy, I confess that I was being a little flippant!

Period. </font>[/QUOTE]Seems to me that they are assimilating rather well, since they are enjoying their freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and all the benefits of our democracy. One could even argue that they have truly become American in the modern sense of the word since, as you seem to imply, they are registering for welfare (please don't think that welfare began with the Muslim immigrants in this country).

    Their plan is to take over and they are succeeding (as I have chronicled in this thread about one little town in Maine). They are getting a lot of help from non-Muslims who are blind to their political ideology, even though it is freely admitted by their own leaders.

    Enjoy your freedom while you can, Joseph, cause if the pre-tribbers are wrong, your children & grandchildren may end up living under Sharia in the USA.

    Sorry, LE. But you have shown no such evidence of an attempted take over of these Muslims in Maine. All your articles show is that there are a group of Muslims enjoying the freedoms of our democracy that everyone else enjoys (thereby showing that they are assimilating to American Culture rather well), and that there are a bunch of bigots in the small town of Maine. Nothing more.
