Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.
No. But I do think that a close eye has to be kept on the activities there, and what is happening with the money that flows in.
That said I am going to post more tomorrow on Imam Rauf and his ties, and what other Muslims around the world have weighed in on this subject. Hint, moderate Muslims see this as a threat to them.
Til tomorrow....night all.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

You don't know the Bible, you don't know the Koran, in fact, you don't know any religious texts, nor do you know history. You try to pick points apart and twist words. ****, I'm not even religious but I'm not going to give you the graduate course you obviously need. This isn't the place for it.
Apologists like yourself bring up Christianity's past and purport to call them equal with Islam...lol
Some very crucial differences from Islam. Differences which are crucial for today -
Christianity had a period of somewhat violent expansion in Europe, as well as internal sectarian violence but here's the crucial part. For the tremendous majority of that time, most of the population were illiterate and incapable of reading the Bible themselves. They had to depend on priests, and later ministers, to read and interpret the Bible for them. However, as literacy spread, it became impossible to tell people the "word of God", when it contradicted what they could read for themselves. Christianity returned to its core.
Christianity, at its roots, is non-violent. A Christian is commanded to look at Jesus as the best example. A Muslim on the other hand, has Mohammed as his ideal. Quite the opposite. Moderating Islam requires that you induce Muslims to essentially backslide and become less devout.
