    I was under a similar impression.

    I am 100% opposed to Islam in every way, shape or form. Forget religious opposition. From a purely secular, political perspective, Islam is a clear and present danger to this country and to the American way of life. Islam is even more insidious than limp dick communism. Until the day arises that we finally decide to eradicate it, we must resist it at every point. It should not be protected under the first amendment because of the threat it presents to the US.

    I must say, your debating skills are somewhat lacking.

    I just watched the clip and had a look through, and it is troubling he wouldn't admit to Hamas being a terrorist organization. Does it change my opinion on the mosque... No. If funding came from Hamas, yes. Is that likely. No.

    As i said before, if REAL evidence is provided, I will respond positively. This is the first time you've provided me with something solid.
    Islam is even a threat to those who are Muslims. If you want to know how, just read the works of Naipaul. He documents how Islam actually destroys and reduces civilizations, and cripples their ability to progress in any area (especially science).

    And to anybody who said that bigotry wasn't the reason for the backlash to the mosque, I say to you Q.E.D.

    You know I wondered that myself. I am sure for someone living in NYC, and for the people of NYC it is a touchy issue, but I think the majority of Americans would like there to be one giant tower. I propose we make a tower that beats the hell out of anything Hong Kong or Mumbai is building, with a giant 1 acre American flag ont he top and a giant 50ft bald eagle on the top of that, with eyes that can shoot laser beams at on coming aircrafts if they so choose to fly into it. Also no, I am not joking we seriously should make something badass like that.

    Regretfully though, I have to say that our founders never contemplated the problem of Islamic expansion. Immigration by Muslims to Europe was unheard of.

    It is my position that Islam is incompatible with Western values. If we are both to survive, then there must be separation. If it were in my power, I'd deport every Muslim in Europe and the Americas. Either back to their country of origin or to their Islamic nation of choice. And I would prohibit citizenship or permanent residency to any Muslim. I would still trade with them, but I'd keep them in their own lands. If their culture ever experiences a renaissance and they grow out of their intolerance, then isolation might no longer be necessary. Until that time however, I consider them to be a threat to our very existence.

    If there were such a thing -- two towers, one tower, whatever -- standing there, and it's baffling to me that there isn't, no little nearby mosque would mean a thing to anyone.

    Yeah especially a bald eagle with laser beam eyes. Is there a comission people can send WTC2 ideas too?

    There were already Muslims who emigrated to Europe well before America was even a British colony.

    Lucky for us, you are in no position to act on your flawed beliefs. You are the opposite of what America stands for. In fact, your reasoning is in direct opposition of the US Constitution. The only one who has shown intolerance here is you. The only threat to our existence is you. Xenophobia is not very becoming.
