    Re: GOP Congressman: ‘Increase Surveillance’ of Muslim Community

    I'm sorry but Mr King is correct. There have been 45-50 thwarted attacks by muslims since 2001. Its not about political correctness or profiling or anything like that. It's about using logical deduction and figuring out that yes, people of the faith of Islam attack us or attempt to attack us more than others. There's nothing violating about that. It's a friggin fact. Its the equivalent of saying the police are wrong for concentrating in the ghetto because mostly blacks live there. Yes, it is true mostly blacks live there. There is more crime in the ghetto than in the suburbs as well. Its a logical use of law enforcement resources. I'm not advocating for wire tapping or anything like that. But I am good with law enforcement agencies setting up task forces with the specific task of following leads in this area. Tips fly in on the daily about terrorist activity, etc. We should allow large municipalities to concentrate their efforts on thwarting these attacks by Islamists. We have no issue with them setting up gang task forces, anti-trafficking task forces, anti-drug task forces. We shouldn't have an issue with anti-terrorism task forces. Unfortunately for muslims, anti-terrorism task forces are going to lead them to the mosques and gathering places of their faith. A very indicative fact in this entire case about the nature of Islam is that these guys family NEVER called in and said they recognized them. They have extensive family here. A father, uncle, aunt, sisters, etc and none of them called in and said they knew who he was. I don't care if my wife or son did this, they would be as good as caught if they did.

    And to the many others who have been brought forth that were classmates, friends, and so forth that were in disbelief that it was them?

    All I know of at this point is two male and one female room mate. We don't know anything about them yet which is why I didn't mention them. Also, their family (minus one uncle) has claimed a big US conspiracy against them and denied that they did it. This is despite the fact that the FBI has video of the youngest dropping one of the packs that blew up. Disbelief and withholding are two very different things. I was in disbelief that the young man they kept showing on TV was a terrorist as I'm sure many others were.

    These colleagues, classmates, and friends did not become public figures until today. This includes the family members. Some of the best statements against this heinous series of events came from one of the Uncles.

    While I can both understand and have some issues with some family members claiming these two men were framed, and some reports that there was some truther elements involved, you cannot just say "oh this is indicative of Islam!"

    Why can't I say that? Very rarely do you see muslims roll over on fellow muslims. When they do, you see things like the OBL informer being imprisoned in Pakistan and tortured.

    Maybe we aren't looking close enough and shut out contrary concepts, as had been discussed earlier.

    Which post or series of posts are you speaking of? I don't think I read them.

    One of the many threads in which it was about how Muslims keep silent against the acts of terrorism. Of course, when we showed otherwise throughout the years, that conveniently gets shoved underneath a rug.

    Between McVeigh and the IRA...I think there's just as much justification to put all people of Irish descent under surveillance.

    Shoved underneath a rug by Muslims?
