    Yes, we disagree. Lpast is, at worst, extending correlation into causation. It is not a given that all members, or even a majority, of a given group will be doing any particular bad behavior. The causation, in it's literal sense, is a stretch. Granted.

    But, if we're going to be intellectually honest, it is undeniable fact that some groups are more likely than others to do certain things, in this case terrorism against Americans. In today's world, is it most likely that, when a terrorist incident from without against Americans happens, that Mongolians will be the perpetrators? No. South Americans? No. Finns? No. Namibians? No.

    Middle Easterners? You bet. To deny that is simply hiding one's own head in the sand. That's correlation, and has earned it's need for additional caution.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    But that's not what he's saying. He's saying he can't tell the difference between one group of Muslims or another, so he can't figure out which are the ones we should be worried about.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

    The blatant comments by Bill O'Reilly saying that Al-Jazeera is anti-American are ridiulous. Al Gore did not do anything wrong and no matter how biased (and apparantly racist) Bill O'Reilly's comments are it does not make them true.
    Well, you're forgetting the cardinal rule of punditry. If the other guys do it, it's bad. Doesn't matter what it is. Bush invading Iraq was good. Obama expressing an opinion about Libya was bad.

    So liberals engaging in free enterprise is evil. Even though free enterprise is good.

    That's the same sort of thinking that equates disagreeing with certain policies of the Israeli government with anti-semitism.

    ummm, no. Me saying that there's nothing to get confused because I already clearly stated my position has nothing to do with that

    I've been saying throughout this thread that they have in the past had a lot of anti-american sentiments...that shouldn't be confusing.

    I also wouldn't completely separate the US government from America, we elect our representatives and our commander in chief.

    Well I haven't read the entire thread so you very well may have addressed this question already: But do you believe criticizing or disliking a country's government is the same thing as criticizing or disliking the people?
