    This "Sharia" law.... probably copied from the old English law in the 600s or the 1600s....

    And why this fear and dread of someone else's culture and law ?
    Well, Sharia law, as it is practized in different Muslim countries, is indeed not compatible with Western values, as far as I can tell. Especially when it comes to equality of men and women (clearly not the case), religious freedom (death for apostates) and freedom in the bedroom (punishments for adultery and homosexual acts).

    That said, it's not even legal standard in many Muslim countries and I doubt sufficiently convinced pro-Sharia Muslims will ever reach a sufficient number in America to make it a relevant problem. Unless the Dark Ages loving conservative Christians you mention all suddenly convert to orthodox Islam ...

    Just how many times could your significant other cheat on you before you'd be upset?
    How many cockroaches would you allow before calling an exterminator?
    How many turds floating in the punch is too many to prevent you from drinking it?

    How many Islamists is too many for you to bear?

    Should we try to wake you up before they infiltrate our government?

    Well, wake the **** up!

    They're here.

    So what precautions do you suggest our government take that's not already being done?

    I think Germany has an Islamist problem. But many of the non-Islamic Germans have adjusted to it and feel that we here in America should throw out the WELCOME mat for Islamists and not become concerned with the situation until after we have as many as Gemany has.

    Well, I say we need to keep Islamist infiltration to a minimum and do whatever we can to discourage their presence and activities.

    Yeah, Germany has an islamist problem. It has a neo-Nazi problem and a problem with revolutionary leftist extremists too. They're all being monitored and observed, and I'm confident the authorities can handle it.

    The US has problems with cults and domestic terrorists too, who sometimes decide to blow up government buildings in Oklahoma, or which kill its disciples when they are about being raided by the police.

    That's all not nice, sure, and deserves some attention. But no need to panic. You'll always have a few nuts.

    That is precisely the kind of arguments mccarthy and his supports used. surely you are familiar with mccarthyism and its incredibly destructive impact on america for absolutely no gain whatsoever.
