    YOU inject latent hostilities that have been with you for 2 decades into an arguement that exemplifies very valid concerns MOST people have today.

    YOU have a long term "Chip on YOUR shoulder" against the LDS Church and a lot of Mormon Men based on your experiances when you were younger and cannot forgive yourself probably for being so immature and not being able to (initially) cope with the doctranaire attitudes of a lot of the Mormon Men.. Seeing these garments, which most people are not even aware of is important because your hostility forces you to grasp even a goofy Islamic comparison to in a teeny way get back at those you despise. Those who at one time had YOU "towing the mark" and "Dancing to their Tune"

    YES, MANY are NOT Citizens and MANY of those who might of at one time "Raised Their Hand" and "Took the Oath" did so for commercial reasons. In short few have any genuine Loyalty to the USA.

    Can YOU comprehend this OR do YOU believe We can work it out over a few decades (???)

    Nope, wouldn't be nervous at all. Why should I? It should be perfectly obvious to all by now that actual terrorists never board a plane wearing Muslim garb.

    Living in fear does nothing more than make you a prisoner in your own mind.

    A little Profiling will help erase that Fear quite a bit I suspect.

    Do you honestly think profiling anyone who looks Arab will work? LMAO!

    You do realize that Muslims and even the terrorist Muslims cover the entire human spectrum? From Africa to Europe and far beyond.

    If you think profiling will help ease your fear, you will be a prisoner for a long, long time.

    As of about five years ago, 95% of all conflicts around the world involved Muslims. How any rational person could not, at least, consider the risk involved as it pertains to Muslims is rather perplexing.

    Considering risk is one thing. You would have to be a fool not to. But that is not what we are talking about.

    She is scared to get on a plane because of the fear of terrorism. This debilitating kind of fear is ridicules and borders on paranoia, exactly what the terrorist want. If all Americans were scared to fly with anyone in Muslim garb, the terrorists would be victorious.
