I believe extremists are the Muslim equivalent of a regular Bible-study, Sunday church-going Christian, except that Baptists aren't driving homicide-carbombs into Jewish synagouges or Methodist churches.Applying single stories like this to 1.2 billion people is amateur hour at best.
The ones called moderates are like a Christian that only goes to church at Christmas or Easter. In other words they are the bad Muslims and the killers are the good Muslims.
The Koran does not preach peace and tolerance. You should read it, cover to cover. The Koran and the Hadith are about Islam becoming the predominant religion through what ever means necessary. War when Islam is strong, deception and subversion otherwise.
That doesn't mean every Muslim believes that. Doesn't mean they don't.
Christ Jesus' taught us to love our enemies and to turn the other cheek.I just hope you don't start killing random Muslims.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

Is it Christians? How about Catholics? The Cardinals planting IED's are they? hmmm? How about Buddhists? the Monks in an uproar?
Islamophobe...HA! Get the hell out of here with that tripe! Not knowing who your enemy is leads to defeat by your enemy...However that may just be the goal eh?
An excellent point. Not knowing your enemy does lead to defeat.
So you must be hell bent on defeat. If you think your enemy is all Islam, then you don't know your enemy at all.
Look at what scare mongers like you have done, you have driven people to such heights of fear they have given up civil liberties and are now willing to circumvent the law because they've been led to believe that all Islam means terror.
One day you'll look around and realize that the country and principles you thought you were defending, no longer exist. The patriot act will eventually be turned on the people and made permanent, and the terrorists won't have had to do anything, you did all the work for them, because you were afraid.
I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
Whoever owns the property has the right to build whatever they want. At least they should be able to. Private property rights should be protected. If the government can stop this than what's to stop them from taking more civil liberties?
"Those who would sacrifice essential liberties for temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."
That's what's happening in America today.
I think it's safe to say ric27 is a troll. The way he talks is meant specifically to incite anger and outrage, so don't even bother with him.
