    The Germans seem to get it.

    Why Germany closed mosque where 9/11 plotters met - CSMonitor.com

    German authorities say the mosque, which is where the 9/11 plotters met and reportedly was host to Muslims from many nations, was still a 'central attraction' for militants. European officials are concerned about the growing transnational nature of Islamist groups.

    German authorities today closed a Hamburg mosque once frequented by Mohammad Atta, a Sept. 11 pilot and planner – saying the mosque, located behind Hamburg’s main rail station and next to a fitness center, remained a “central attraction for the jihadist scene.”

    On the other hand, fairy tales are very nice. I like the one where Chewbacca rides a squirrel into battle, and defeats the Nazis during WWII.

    Hey man it's useless to quote our founding fathers with this guy. I did it at least THREE OTHER TIMES in this thread and some others towards ric, and he just totally ignores it.

    This actually drives me crazy. There's a commercial that comes on internet radio that I listen to during the days that is talking about how the Bible proves that christianity is the true religion because it says that jesus rose from the dead and no other religions saviors rose from the dead, that they're still dead and in the ground, and thus that proves that christianity is true.

    And I just sit there every time boggled at the notion of "proving" that your faith is true by quoting a story that is told in the book of said faith as the "proof" of the legitimacy of said book.

    Look. I think its time this topic was put to rest, as ive said 1000 times before, this is not about Islam vs. Christianity, or anything else except these 2 things.

    Freedom of Religion
    Private property rights

    If you want to amend these 2 things to include an Anti-Islam clause, then by all means go ahead.

    But as a matter of law, there is nothing you can do to stop it.

    I feel you are a liberal in many ways, but if you want to understand that question....ask Redress.
