    Islam is a religion not a race. Its always remarkable watching lefties who despise religion in general get all PC when it comes to islam. I guess this suggests the PC gene is predominant over the anti-religion gene.

    More equivocation (who saw that coming?).

    Here is a direct question I have for you -who's the bigger threat to free society-the US or radical islam? Answer directly please.

    Only 1/5 of Muslims are arab. Perhaps its not about the color of their skin and more about the violence and terror?

    Thats a separate point, but there are plenty (over a million a year, legally) who come here each year, often from such societies-and they dont import this behavior. Face it-this is a problem with Islam-and its fairly unique.

    Agreed.

    Wahhabi goes back much longer, and Islam has a long history of slaughter, forcible conversion, or living under severe oppression-in fact thats exactly what ISIS and Boko are doing right now-we are seeing back in time to how the world used to be-except it still is under Islam in many places.

    I think the media does spend too much time covering the actions and lives of mass killers, etc-but ignoring it wont make it go away-people wont/cant-and the entire purpose of terrorism is to make people take notice.

    ISIS, while at war with the US (and the US at war with them although without a name for the conflict at the moment) exists for its own ends and would likely just grow more with westerners plugging their ears and closing their eyes.

    Its a problem thats not going away.
