"Good for the Obama administration. Islamist radicals are not Islam"
This is why I can't vote Democrat (nationally), even though I tend to lean their way on several social issues. Libs simply don't have the intestinal fortitude to call things as they truly are. Yes, there are peaceful Muslims who are probably more secular than others living in this country. However, the tenants of Islam are not compatible with an open and free society. Many European countries are slowly beginning to realize this...a little too late in some countries.
Saudi Arabia is the birthplace of Islam, and the destination of tens of millions of Muslims each year on their pilgrimage. It is also the most repressive country in the world and the chief sponsor of global terror against the west. Please explain to me how liberal Americans have a better understanding of Islam than the actual birthplace of the religion, where Imams influence the teachings of the religion around the world? I know you can't...you know you can't...so your only "retort" is to try and lump Christianity in with Islam, so that all religions get negatively bashed.
The biggest threat to the future of this great nation is Poltical Correctness. It prevents real dialogue on many issues, and now actually is moving towards the actual suppression of free speech, wholly supported by elites at many universities. This isn't fantasy, it is reality. There is only one party that supports the notion of Poltical Correctness.
