    Would you trust ALL Germans in the US during WWII with COMPLETE faith?
    do you know many/any Muslims personally?

    ever hear of Mr. Dwight Eisenhower? he was of German descent
    There were quite a few Nazi spies in America at that time, Thunder.

    There were also some sympathizers.

    He answered your question within the proper time period. He said, "they fought against the Nazis bravely."

    the first Muslim I ever got to know, was a former US Marine, who had an American flag on his wall. Direct descendant of Muhammed.

    and they made him "register", after 9-11. if there was one Muslim in the USA who did not deserve such treatment, it was this guy.

    Yes. Why? There is a modern Muslim I have befriended, AEB that other thread about the Facebook discussion.

    Do you trust your friends 100%?

    I trust my friend to an extent, just as I trust any of my friends to an extent. That does not change the fact that I don't have complete trust in any large group of people.

    I daresay I don't trust all communists, either, if you want to start drawing in the political group element. Same for capitalists/liberals/socialist/etc

    so what. I would not have feared German-Americans more than anyone else.

    its unAmerican, bigoted, and not justified by anything other than paranoia & irrational thinking.

    and you know what else? guess which ethnic group got the most Congressional Medals of Honor for WW2? Japanese-Americans.

    so this whole nonesense about justifying bigotry & prejudiced fear, is utter bull****.

    Well, there were quite a few German spies, as well. Including German sympathizers of the Nazis. Do you think those Germans in the US did not exist?

    Wait...what? You said 18 terrorist attacks by radical Muslims in America. I just wanted to know if that was America proper (just the 50 States) and the time frame for it.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Communists are a political group.

    that's like comparing chickens to a telephone.
