    No, it's not.

    No. That's consistent with observed fact, in that the vocal outrage by muslims in America against the atrocities of their brethren has been breathtaking by it's absence.

    If they're not willing to protest the support of their leaders against these atrocities, then they share guilt.

    If my sailing club started running down harbor seals because they mess up the marina, you can bet your ass I'd find a new canoe club in a hurry.

    There's a reason zoning laws exist.

    It's so people have a say what's built in their neighborhoods.

    Are you saying moderate Muslims and Muslim leaders have failed to condemn terrorists? Because i can disprove that right now.

    THANK YOU!

    It's not President Obama's neighborhood, nor yours, apparently.

    Therefore.

    But Islam IS.

    I think the Jews should build a temple across the street from every mosque in New York. I think the Southern Baptists should build a church on the right side of every mosque in New York. I think the Lutherans should build a church on the left of every mosque in New York. And I think the Jehovah Witnesses and Mormons should take turns building their Halls and Temples behind every mosque in New York.
    I DO TOO!!! If that's what these religions want to do then they should be able to build their buildings wherever they please.
