    Try this on for size - while holding out hope that Many of the Children of Islamic Immigrants may well assimilate into America - I find little to really believe the parents ever will and must recognize bitterly that a significant proportion do have zero loyalty to their new Nation.

    It's not the dress I'm worried about. It's the boxcutter in the turban. Honestly though, when I see all these folks that wear their national dressings it kinda creeps me out. It makes me think they don't really want to be American. They don't want to assimillate. Why would that be is a good question. Plus they gotta know they are drawing attention to themselves. I've not seen Muslim men wearing the robes and headresses, but many of the women cover their heads, and it's creepy. Some are obviously American women married to Muslim men (what a mistake that is, whooo weee) Talk about treating women like dirt under the feet. This is what makes me wonder what in the world is wrong with the Progressives in this country. How can they stand there and not bring attention to how much the Muslim men are still dominating their women. Christian men used to do it, too, but most have seen the light. The Muslims need to get with it in that area, but I think it's a long way off.

    YES, If they are in this GREAT Country of OURS and they continue being turbaned with flowing robes, or the (presumed) ladies are in the hajib with only eyes visible I'd say they are not to likely to either assimilate or wish say the US Army too well in Iraq or Afghanistan - and possibly are much more like than me to kill a daughter , Neice, Granddaughter over some Stain on the Family Honor.

    I hope all Progressives can at least consider the odds.

    So you are saying that every Muslim in the U.S. is part of an organized group that wants to kill Americans?

    He was Islamic, but yes, there are many Lebanese Christians in the U.S. Of course, they look Middle Eastern, so they must be terrorists.

    Not being prepared is what leads to the biggest catastrophes. Not acknowledging that you've got an enemy when he's standing right beside you (like on 9/11) is where there can be the biggest mistakes.

    That UA Counter Clerk at Logan on the morning of 9/11/01 made a quick assumption that Two of the Five Vermin were okay even though they seemed confused on a few items. It WAS a blunder.

    You are so right.
    I mean, how totally scary is it to see women covering up their hair and body.
    It traumatises me, it does.

    I Never said that .

    You being a Convert to Liberalism tag that ideology onto others that YOU disagree with. In that regard you are as biased as those you despise for social reasons.
