Lawrence Sober: Tired of ‘Muslim rights’


To the editor:

I, for one, am tired of hearing about Muslim rights and violations thereof.

The current administration is dropping criminal charges against known terrorists because of the methods used during interrogations. Namely water boarding, because some believe that we should simply ask these people if they think they are guilty or not.

Not once have I heard anyone mention the torture methods that have been used against our military once they were captured.

Terrorists do not care about any international agreements such as the Geneva Convention. First of all, they have never signed any such agreement. Setting off bombs in public places is more of their preferred type of warfare.

Our compassion for other people has become our weakness and that is the area our enemies continue to use against us.

This country is at war and not only along the southern border. We listen to too many people who know nothing about war because they have never been in one.

The Fort Hood attacker now has people who feel sorry for him because he is paralyzed from the waist down. The only reason he is alive is because the police officer who shot him was not a very good shot.

Now the taxpayers will be paying to protect him for the rest of his life. What about the victims who lost their lives at the hands of this man who was trusted enough to be an officer in our military?

It will take an attack on the level of Pearl Harbor before this nation puts an end to this non-sense. Until someone with enough political clout dies, nothing will change.

We have a legal system in this country, but we do not use it. We do not need to change our justice system for the benefit of Muslim law.

We need to enforce the laws we now have.

This man is right. When Muslims stop terrorizing the world then they will be accepted by all as peace loving. But when every act of terror has the Muslim faith somehow attached to it, they get nothing from me.

The muslims aren't the ones blowing up the innocent with unmanned drones. N A T O is not nnocent. It's called perpetual war,,,,a business plan. We've been conned.

"One nation under god". They never "named" that god that we sit under. It is not the Christ, the son of the living God that rules this nation. It is rather, the god of this world that rule our rulers.

Go ask The Most Hgh yourself....on your knees. Just look at the eye of ra on the money.

I dont think Timothy McVeigh, Ted Kaczynski, Scott Roeder, Shelley Shannon, and Eric Rudolph were Muslims...

I don't think those same people tried to take over our country and expect special treatment for their religion and families while trying to destroy us and aiding with terror cells within the United States like many muslims do. All this being done while on welfare.

Lets not forget that Christian terrorists right hear in America are growing. The FBI raid on Hutaree Christian militia have brought to light this formerly little-known group based in Adrian, Michigan.

Many seem to be millenarians, expecting the end of time to come soon. Like the so-called Patriot Movement, they are gun nuts. They are said to be organized to kill the Antichrist, and some reports say that they planned violence against American Muslims.

Polls shows that about 1/4 of members of the Republican Party believe that President Obama is the Antichrist.

America's Promise Ministries Major publisher and distributor of right-wing extremist tracts. Its current leader, Dave Barley, peddles a "soft" version of Christian Identity, one that promotes white separatism and contempt for Jews and non-whites, but that stops short of openly advocating bloodshed. Nevertheless, several of Barley's congregants have committed serious violent crimes, including bank robberies and terrorist bombings.

Heres a list of christian groups headingto become terrist groups.
