    Hello,

    The more Muslim attacks that occur, the more people will vote yes.

    I think our best course of action would be to learn about the reality of our situation, rather than just look for scapegoats.
    That is true.However I am not in favor of importing more problems into this country.Non-citizens should be thoroughly screened before being allowed into the US.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Some of them want to kill you. Some of them don't. It's the same reason that we should put American Christians and just Christians in general under scrutiny.

    We should treat Muslims that want to kill us the same way that we treat Christians who want to kill us. Wouldn't you agree? Shouldn't we treat Muslims the same way that we treat Christians?

    Nope we should not. We should not implement laws or polices that specifically target American Christians and just Christians in general.. Targeting all these people because of the actions of a few is not only wrong but unconstitutional to solely based it off religion.
    We should treat Muslims that want to kill us the same way that we treat Christians who want to kill us. Wouldn't you agree?
    Which would be???

    Yup. But im not promoting new laws to target Christians just because they are Christian.

    Hell, I've been told on this board the attacks are the fault of liberals because they let Muslims into the country.

    I'm just saying that we should treat them all the same. Anybody who wants to kill me should be treated fairly and justly regardless of their religion. We should be kind, compassionate and caring to all people regardless of their motivations.

    Re: Should the United States implement racial profiling of Muslim-Americans?

    Neither Islam nor American is a race, let's drop this absurd "racial profiling" nonsense. That said, should we take a look at Muslims, American or otherwise, a little more closely? Absolutely. That's where the problem worldwide is. You don't find a lot of Jainist suicide bombers. You have to acknowledge that some groups of people are more likely to commit some crimes. You look more at men as serial killers than women, simply because there are more male serial killers than female serial killers. It only makes sense to spend a little more time looking at specific demographics which are more likely to commit certain crimes. That doesn't mean you stop looking at everyone, but it makes no sense to say a 96-year old woman in a wheelchair is just as likely to be a mad dog mass killer as a physically fit 22-year old man with a history of mental problems.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Then maybe they shouldn't perform attacks like the one on Charlie Hebdo?
