    Well good for them. (And I mean that.) I take it your friend would enjoy the benefit and protection of a U.S. diplomatic passport. That's a perk most Muslim moderates don't enjoy.

    And that's why I think most are silent, they help us and then have to go back into the same community with the whack job they helped put away, and it's not just their own lives but their entire families that are targets.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I'm 71 years old. Do you have any idea how many times in my lifetime the 'foster peace' program has been spewed? Neither do I. I'll be dead and gone when most here are the age I am now, but, I'd be willing to bet, if I could come back from the dead, that nothing will have changed decades from now.

    Possibly not, and the reality is that relations between the U.S. and the middle east have been extremely chaotic since the early 1900s. I don't have a decent idea of the fix but I'm sure it starts with moderates on both sides, definitely not politicians.

    “We can’t be bound by political correctness,” adds King, who chairs the House subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence. “I think we need more police and more surveillance in the communities where the threat is coming from, whether it’s the Irish community with the Westies [an Irish-American gang in New York City], or the Italian community with the mafia, or the Muslim community with the Islamic terrorists.”

    GOP Congressman:
    And if there's plausible cause in a particular localized area to increase survellience on a particular community, that's fine. That's why it's okay to increase survellience on the Irish community in New York because of the Westies, but doesn't neecssarily mean that it justifies increasing it in Bufallo and Baltimore.
