    No, it was an accusation, really. But to answer: if they're American citizens, then the standards of reasonable suspicion and probable cause apply, just as they do with anyone. Don't know why you think dangling "Muslim" in front of me would cause me to answer any differently; you're the religious bigot, not me.

    There are actually a number of militant Muslim groups around the country, and they've been around since the '50s. I ain't sweatin' 'em.

    If they're foreign nationals, then it would be stupid not to look into them. But then it has nothing to do with this conversation.

    I have a Muslim friend from Syria. He's highly educated and makes a good living. He owns a 1000 thousand acre ranch about 1/1/2 hours west of here. Three or four times a year, he takes about 20-30 of the guys at work out to his ranch, and they shoot all day. Shoot wild hogs, shoot rocks, shoot targets, drink beer, and there are lots of guns on the premisis. Should he be suspected of being a muslim extremist, because of this behavior, or must there be more evidence of his nature and intent? Afterall, he's *muslim-looking*, and he takes a bunch of guys out to shoot in the woods.

    Excellent example. There's nothing the slightest bit suspicious in that.

    Well, they play with guns, so to hear you tell it, they must be.

    that's a pretty stupid thing to say.

    anyways, if they aren't Muslim extremists, I'm unconcerned by their playing games with their toys.

    They certainly seem to fit your criteria for terrorists and militia groups.

    Well, you've been saying it throughout this thread. I do happen to agree it's a stupid way to think, so I suggest you stop thinking it.
