    I think they're flipping out over the implication of a slippery slope by the OP that somehow taking money from Iran or Saudi Arabia = Will actively push to have homosexuals beheaded in the US

    Sure, there are some of those. But there are also those who dismiss the idea that there could be anything to be concerned about.

    Again your own words bury you.

    tacitly accused me of being a terrorist despite my efforts to help the government fight terrorism
    If you meant someone other than yourself, don't use "me"

    I wasn't accusing anyone on this forum of anything.

    I was putting myself in the shoes of the fellow we're all supposed to be hating on.
    So you believe America was an accessory to 9.11? Because thats what he believes.

    America was responsible for 9-11, dont you understand?

    Why are all of you making bad comments about Islam?

    I have submitted to Islam and will be converting this week.

    I will visit our local Mosque in Dallas and become a convert to *Peace be Upon Him* A'alah, the Great One.

    I urge those of you who are Islamophobic to visit your local Mosque (women, unfortunately, have to go to a different room, as they are not allowed in the main prayer room).

    I urge you to purchase a copy of the Qu'ran and educate yourself about Islam.

    * Peace be upon Him * Aa'alah.

    Islam is love. Love is Islam.

    Actually, my own words don't do any such thing. I made it abundantly, painfully clear that I was putting myself in that fellow's shoes, not accusing anyone here on this forum of anything.

    If you want to continue making a complete ass out of yourself, feel free to argue otherwise.

    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Its always amusing when you come back and try to redefine your argument after the fact.

    Where did I say I believed that?
    Again, your words betray you

    He believes in Sharia Law in America and said America was an accessory to 9.11.

    I'll ask you again. Do you believe this since you are claiming you are putting yourself in his shoes. Thats what he believes.

    How do those shoes feel Dan?

But to my understanding the U.S. considers neither of them terrorist organizations.

    All I'm saying is that if I were in his position, I'd say this kind of thing to get folks like you all pissed off.

    I'm not saying I agree or disagree with anything he believes, just that I can understand why he's not bending over backwards to reassure the people who seem to be convinced that an evil radical Muslim ninja warrior clan is hidden behind every tree, under every bush, and inside every Mosque, waiting to cut our throats.

    As a result of the current sanctions, as imposed by the UN and the EU, yes, it would be illegal.

    I would think it would be a clear violation of the U.S. sanctions on Iran, Iran can not legally fund anything in the U.S. if my understanding of the sanction regime is correct.
