You're convicting peaceful, law-abiding Muslims of being collaborators / supporters / fans of militants without any proof whatsoever.
By that same standard, you carry a torch for murderers.
in the case of the latter, he then asks you to pee in a cup

diplomacy with iran isn't either
the prez stinks at improving relations

If he keeps putting himself out there and being reasonable and creating environments and opportunities for interaction with the public, then he's doing what he should be doing.
As for the President, I don't give a damn about him.
It may not be fair, and I was merely remarking on cultural differences? Yes, not making a statement that all Muslims that don't get out in the streets supports terrorism.
BTW It wouldn't take much, I figure most Muslims that live in the West and have been exposed to Personal Liberty move beyond such notions. But what will it take for you to acknowledge that many DO support Terrorist.
Ford Motor Company Kept Workers Who Praised 9/11 Employed for 3 Years | Debbie SchlusselLast week, Ford Motor Company finally won a suit by a former employee, Arab Muslim Saleem Shariff, who cheered the 9/11 attacks and high-fived fellow Arab Muslim employees on the day of the attacks. Three others–Khalid Ali Alward, Abdul Mohamed, and Saleh Mohamed Omar–also Arab Muslims, participated and did the same thing: they cheered and high-fived the 9/11 attacks. And they all sued when they were not hired for permanent employment, but only Shariff appealed after losing at the trial court level. The Michigan Court of Appeals, in an unpublished decision (which I obtained and you can read here), decided in Ford’s favor.

CAMERA ALERT: PA Blocks Coverage of Palestinians Cheering 9/11 Attacks
According to the AP, Israel Radio and the Jerusalem Post, the Palestinians threatened news organizations and their workers in an effort to stop the broadcast of video, and the publishing of photographs, showing large crowds of Palestinians in Nablus and Ramallah joyfully celebrating the deadly 9/11 terrorist attacks against Americans. Presumably they understood that such video and photos would be repugnant to Americans — and millions of others around the world — and might damage their image.
Photographers and stringers (mostly Palestinians themselves) were forced by Palestinian gunmen to stop filming the celebrations (see Agence France Press report), and they were threatened with death if their video was broadcast. The news organizations they work for were told that everyone from their news organization would lose their access to PA officials and be unable to cover events in PA territory if they broadcast any video or photos of the large celebrations.
An AP photographer was specifically threatened with death if his photos were published. AP has published a report about the threat, but has caved in to the PA's request not to publish these photos.
Thus far, only videos and photos of small crowds celebrating in eastern Jerusalem and Lebanon have been broadcast/published. It appears the Palestinian intimidation tactics are working to keep the most damning scenes from Ramallah and Nablus off American (and worldwide) television screens and out of the newspapers.

My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
I don't expect Catholics to feel shame when a priest rapes a child.
I don't expect you to feel shame when another man rapes a woman.
I don't expect Germans to feel shame for what happened in WWII.
I don't expect Irish Catholics to feel guilty about the actions of the IRA.
I don't expect Italians to feel guilty for the actions of the Red Brigades or the Mafia.
I don't expect all Basques to feel guilty for the actions of ETA.
And I certainly don't expect Muslims to feel either guilt or shame for 9/11 or ANY other Islamic terrorist attack.
Why in the bloody hell would you expect innocent people to mentally associate themselves with criminals in this manner? Are you a sadist of some sort??
