    I think the obvious fact is that there was no significant (or any?) Espionage or sabotage on Amerca's West Coast in wWII precisely because the Japanese Americans and/or those of Japanese heritage were interned.

    As they say about shooting a perp, it's better to be judged by 12 than be carried to the grave by 6.

    In other words, we have the luxury of lamenting the civil rights losses because we prevented any possible, very possible domestic attacks. But that's the price FDR chose to pay to keep us safe.

    Lamentable but he made the right choice.

    If you could suddenly impose law in US, how would an American Muslim's life change? Exactly what laws would you impose to keep "us" safe?

    So why do you defend such intolerance in a religion and a group of people?

    You wouldn't defend ther types of violence and hatered and bigotry, so why do you defend Islamists and Islam?

    Oh, I think I've learned from history alright. I've learned that unless real men and women of all races and creeds understand the necessity there is for sometimes making tough decisions that unfortunately have to mean the death or suffering of a small number to preserve the safety and rights of all that there is a greater likelihood of all of us going down.


    The principle that helped save America's West Coast from sabotage, infiltration and espionage during WWII at the expense of those of Japanese descent is the same principle that advises us to avoid voting for a Muslim for POTUS until we truly learn to respect Islam for all it is and all it is about.

    Do you really believe inturring the Japanese in CA saved CA from the Japense invasion? Which Japanese was it they found out about that planned to do something? I had never heard about that.

    If you've granted me the power to IMPOSE law it sounds like you've already embraced the concept of 'surrender' i.e. the interpretation of the word, Islam. IIRC.

    But, in answer to your question,if I have that much power then I'd have the power to appoint a commission to study what might be done to assure that Islam does not pose a threat to our government or our freedoms or our way of life so that one day a qualified Muslim COULD earn my vote for POTUS.
