    Do you know anything at all about international Islamic terrorism?
    Yes I do.

    But I fail to see what that has to do with Muslim Americans that have been unfairly judged because of those Extremists.

    Which is what the thread, the ad and the OP is about.

    So you want to separate American Muslims from international Muslims, is that it?

    It's not possible.

    Care to elaborate on exactly what an "Muslim American" is?...and 2 just how many arrests can be directly attributed to simple good patriotism by "Muslim Americans"?

    btw- Who is the public voice of "Muslim Americans" and what has been their line from the start?

    Why not? Just asking.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Because you are either a Muslim or a non Muslim or, as they would have it, a Muslim or an infidel. You might also, at best, be a Dhimmi.

    The colonialism and the foreign occupations of muslim lands for the past couple centuries? You want them to apologise to US? Islamic radicalism isnt a magical probelm spouting out of some evil islamic seed, its a direct human response to foreign intervention in their business coupled with an extremist ideology that was born of that.

    I think you'll find that "colonialism" has always been a two way street with Muslims, SE102, and events of 200 years ago does not give any group the right to murder innocent people today.

    If revenge is the motive then people all over the world could start killing Muslims because of their terrorism in many countries, and there'd soon be a bounty on them. Right now there is 'foreign intervention' by Muslims in the democracies. Should we start murdering them as a result?

    Perhaps this "do unto others" philosophy should have been adopted by Muslims, and considered by yourself before you posted.
