Poll in London (I have no view on whether or not this is a legitimate polling outfit), say that two thirds of British Muslims wouldn't tell the British government about an upcoming terror plot.

Given this, is it really so hard for the liberals to understand where [people like me are coming from, when we say it might not be a great idea to import more of these people?

Immigration is awesome, it makes us stronger and better. We can have, and should aspire to have, many ethnicities. But we can only have one culture. And I don't see these people making a concerted effort to adopt to the culture of their new host countries.

Isn't it ironic that all of the European countries that opened up their borders (and arms) to refugees fleeing from other countries controlled by Islamic regimes are now experiencing a major increase in terrorist activity from people that came from those refugee countries?

Is it no wonder there are so many incidents where they call the attackers "home grown" terrorists when many of them have been making regular "pilgrimages" to their homeland (no doubt to get either indoctrinated or get their assignments)???

I agree, immigration helped make this country what it is today, but if we turn a blind eye to what will happen if nothing is done, we will become just another victim of these "diseases" of the civilized world.

At what point does "compassion for fellow man" become "selling out your fellow man"? (See what "sanctuary cities" will justify to allow ANYONE to move there!)

Hey, nothing to see here. White guys did it. It's OK if white guys do it. We don't complain if white guys do it. We don't do anything to prevent white guys from do it. We're just fine when white guys do it. Why do you even mention white guys doing it? Nobody cares when white guys do it.

and the is in the country you live in,,, but we care more about when the word islamic is attached .

Some people actually are capable of caring a lot about something when the word Islamic is not attached. Probably most people. Some, it seems, not so much--if the word Islamist is attached, then the word "racist" attached to white folks pales in comparison.

if not oh well nothing to see... worried about those around you those in England Most are home grown English born

Yup. Home grown Islamism has no connection to the religion/life style/philosophy of immigrants who sired them. Just a totally different thing. Not sure how home grown terrorists can exist without immigration, but there surely is not connection.

"And I don't see these people making a concerted effort to adopt to the culture of their new host countries. "

And I dont see people making a concerted effort to see them as equal in their host countries ... thats true here and a lot of other places doesn't justify their actions at all but lets no look at the issue thru a key hole like so many try to do


A better way of life, benefits, simply don't cut it. You just gotta kill folks if you don't think they see you as equal. Makes a lotta sense. Anyway, why is there all this fuss about "Islamists" when there's plenty of white folks killing people. Oh, wait, I get it. It's a way of becoming equal. If white folks do it, Islamists get a sense of equality by doing it too.

So it's all good. That equality thing is made whole. We can relax.

WDMSO, what large, global movement was the nut on the train, a part of?

"we care more about when the word islamic is attached"

Wrong. I don't care more about one victim than the other. But I see a difference between things that we can easily stop (who comes to our country and who doesn't), and things that are much harder to control (what some individual lunatic does in a country of 300 million people).

In other words, there is no logical way I know of, to prevent individual lunatics from harming others. But there absolutely are things we can do, to reduce our exposure to jihadists. It's a question of whether or not we are willing to do it. But it can be done if we chose to do so.

"And I dont see people making a concerted effort to see them as equal in their host countries "

Please support that. Why are Muslims so desperate to flee to the West, if they are treated so shabbily there?

That husband and wife who went on an office killing spree a few years ago (California?), had just been given a baby shower at the husband's company. The jihadists don't kill us because we are mean to them. They kill us because aren't exactly like them, we don't force our women to dress like ninjas and mutilate their genitals. You really don't see that?

The extremists don't kill for any logical (if there every is one) reason. No social, religious, economic, political or mental connection.

They kill because they are "supposed to" kill.
Not because we are different, but just because we exist!

I could probably understand (not approve, just understand) why they do what they do if it were for a noble cause, but because they don't have a cause it boils down to their only goal in their short diseased lives is to kill and destroy as many and as much as possible.

Extremist religions are nothing more than a perversion of an established mainstream religion, twisted and distorted by sick minds for their own sick goals. Their only true selling point is telling their suicidal eunuchs that they'll get a reward AFTER they're dead and gone! Look at any of the past cult religions that ended in massive deaths and make your own comparisons.....


Oh, and there was another attack yesterday in France.....

They kill for the exact reasons you say they don't.

1.Social-they kill to implement sharia law,living that way is a social change.
2.Religious-religion is their #1 motivation to kill and implement sharia law.
3.Economic -they kill for monetary reasons...they need money to support the cause.
4.Political-in a sharia society there is a strict hierarchy and they will maintain it at any cost which includes killing.
5.Mental connection-they are insane.

As far as "supposed to" kill,the killing of infidels is mentioned more than once in the koran.Its the definition of infidel that the extremists and normal people differ on which directly ties into...Not because we are different, but just because we exist!
they kill because we ARE different and we exist.

How do they determine who they want to kill, and who they are OK with? There is a jihad against those who have different religious beliefs, compared to their beliefs.

"Extremist religions are nothing more than a perversion of an established mainstream religion, twisted and distorted by sick minds for their own sick goals. "

Agreed.

"Look at any of the past cult religions that ended in massive deaths and make your own comparisons....."

What other religions, in the last 500 years, have resulted in massive deaths, especially in massive deaths of non-believers?

No one is worried about the Amish today.

Sounds like you are blaming the victims a bit.

Here we go. In the latest London attack, one of the terrorists came to England as a refugee with his parents. While there, his rotten fellow citizens helped him secure a job, a place to live, and an education for his children. But he was pushed into it by those racists hatemongers in Britain.

During my lifetime, maybe after we lose 10,000 or more, the West is going to have a very ugly but very necessary conversation, about whether or not this religion is compatible with the current Western world. Anger will overtake political correctness at some point.

When was it that the left lost all the resolve they had right after 9/11? Was it a symptom of Bush Derangement Syndrome?

WDMSO, what large, global movement was the nut on the train, a part of? is that how you define a
terrorist attack by "global movement ? he was "White Nationalist we care more about when the word islamic is attached

terrorism, terrorist act. the calculated use of violence (or the threat of violence) against civilians in order to attain goals that are political or religious or ideological in nature; this is done through intimidation or coercion or instilling fear. coup de main, surprise attack.

we care more about when the word islamic is attached

Wrong. I don't care more about one victim than the other. But I see a difference between things that we can easily stop (who comes to our country and who doesn't), and things that are much harder to control (what some individual lunatic does in a country of 300 million people).

"it naive to think its an immigration only issue "

I never, ever said that all acts of terror are carried out by immigrants or refugees. That would be stupid. What I am saying is, SOME acts of terror are carried out by immigrants and refugees. And because of that fact, it's reasonable to conclude that letting in refugees, at least until we can appropriately vet them, isn't worth the risk. Obama reached that same exact conclusion when he temporarily halted immigration from Iraq for a few months, and I don't recall the left attacking him for it. Do you? If so, please refresh my memory?

"or an Islamic issue "

it's na´ve for me to assume that there is a connection between Islam and Islamic jihad? How many people have been slaughtered in the last 15 years, in the name of the Amish? Or the Quakers? Of course, many many people die tragic deaths for reasons that have nothing to do with Islam. But some do, so it's worth asking if the body count is an acceptable price to pay for being tolerant.

I never said it's only immigrants, I never said it's only Islam. You are responding to arguments that nobody is making. In my experience, one does that when one cannot effectively respond to what was actually said, so it's easier to pretend that I said something else entirely (something stupid) and respond to that.

"whats the cure ??? "

Do you ever, ever listen to those who disagree with you? How can you not know what the proposed cure is? If we are talking about protecting our citizens from getting slaughtered by Muslim refugees, the answer is to deny them entry until we can safely vet them - which is what Obama did. I agree that's very, very harsh.

The left would have us believe that there is no upside to it, because that wouldn't stop every single wrongful death on the planet. Once again, no one made that argument (notice a pattern here?). What my side is saying, is that banning refugees who can't be vetted, would likely save SOME lives. It doesn't mean we'd all live forever. But it would have kept one of the terrorists who carried out the recent London attack, out of England. So there is a cost (being less tolerant), and a benefit (being safer).

"deal with these Aholes before they commit theses crimes other then deport them based on religion"

Well, we could also get our act more together. In the case of the Boston Marathon brothers, the Russians specifically told our government, that those 2 were Islamic terrorists. We need to be more effective.

But to answer your question honestly, no, I have no other solution but to deny immigration to Muslims, if they are from certain places that are known for terror, AND they can't be sufficiently vetted. Banning them, is all I've got. And it stinks. It really, really really stinks.

What stinks more in my opinion, is letting them in, and then just keeping our fingers crossed that they don't slaughter our neighbors.

I answered your question directly and honestly, no spin, no sugarcoating, correct? Can you show me the same courtesy? How many innocent civilians need to be slaughtered by Muslim immigrants, before you would agree that the ban is a necessary step? Is there a number? I think we have already exceeded that number, which is why I regretfully support the ban. What price are you willing to pay? How many Americans are you willing to sacrifice in the name of tolerance, before you conclude the risk is too great?

"you make distinctions between a murders action based on religion i make my based on outcome white guy on the train co worker kills 5 ruth killed nine people and husband and wife (the only one called terrorism) i see them all as terrorism"

So because there is no way to stop ALL terror attacks (or all murders), you argue that there's no reason to try and stop any. Brilliant.

There is a huge difference between some random nut who goes on a killing spree because he's a schizophrenic psychopath, and what Osama Bin Laden did. If you disagree with that, you might be the only person in the world who doesn't make that distinction. Dead is dead - I agree on that. But different types of crime represent different problems requiring different solutions. You are saying that because no one solution works for all, that means there is no solution worth trying. You have the right of that opinion. But I don't get it.

You work in criminal justice. Don't you know that we have gun laws to prevent certain types of crime, we have drug laws to prevent other types of crime, we have domestic violence programs to prevent yet other types of crime, we have drinking and driving laws to prevent yet another type of crime.

Why have DUI laws? People still get killed in car accidents, right? That's the logic you are using.

The "Some" you refer to have no freedoms...zip, zilch, nada. They are refugees living in another country (Syria). IF they can pass a better vetting process, they can come here and instantly gain freedoms they did not have before. So nothing is being reduced.

And the "Others" you refer to are US citizens and law abiding immigrants that we have allowed to come here.

Damn skippy that's an acceptable trade-off.

So you are saying that if we ban immigration from places where we can't vet, that it's inevitable that would lead to rounding up US citizens and sending them to concentration camps.

WDMSO, yes, that happened before. That doesn't mean that we can't stop it from happening again. Believe it or not, it is possible to take some extra steps to increase security, without abandoning the Constitution completely. We aren't one small step away from being a police state, that's a long way from where we are.

"We have a POTUS who leads the fear parade"

Some call it an appropriate reaction to the jihad declared. By your own admission, you have zero concern about ISIS, so naturally you feel that "any" concern, is too much.

"Trump mocked Khan's comment on Sunday, suggesting in a tweet that the mayor was downplaying the attacks"

That mayor is a lunatic. Right after the attack, he tells citizens that there's nothing to be concerned about? "See all those mutilated bodies? All those dead kids from the concert last week? Nothing to be concerned about!"

WDMSO, you also dodged a question of mine, so I will ask it again.

How many innocent civilians need to be slaughtered by Muslim immigrants, before you would agree that the ban is a necessary step? Is there a number? I think we have already exceeded that number, which is why I regretfully support the ban. What price are you willing to pay? How many Americans are you willing to sacrifice in the name of tolerance, before you conclude the risk is too great?


Sir i do not live in irrational fear as you do .... More Americans have been killed by other Americans in the last week.. then by the Musulims you fear so much since Trump was elected all this with out his Travel band .. unlike you I am willing to risk myself for tolerance. right now you dont sound much different then they do.. Waving the flag dosn't change the message you spew ... America is built on Tolerance and the risk will never be to great when America isolates its self in fear as you suggest we have lost and lost everything

white guy kills 2 on Train another white guy shoots five ex-colleagues in head

Was there any other connection between these killings other than whiteness? And if whiteness was the connection, were the killings "racist"? I do hear quite often that whites are racist. Or is there a written or oral sort of "Bible" that commands whites to kill those who don't correctly adhere to whiteness? Is there an equivalence between these "whiteness" killings and Islamic terrorist killings? Were these "whiteness" killings acts of terror?

and the is in the country you live in,,, but we care more about when the word islamic is attached . if not oh well nothing to see... worried about those around you those in England Most are home grown English born

Most people in England are "home grown." Being home grown does not seem to be a reason for killing other, presumably home grown, people. I don't recall that being home grown was ever cited as motivation to kill other home grown people.

There is always some other reason given for killing fellow home-growns. In the case of Islamic terrorism, being Muslim is always one of the key factors, the major motivator, for killing other people. It's an amazingly consistent connection between various Islamic terror killings.

"And I don't see these people making a concerted effort to adopt to the culture of their new host countries. "

And I dont see people making a concerted effort to see them as equal in their host countries ... thats true here and a lot of other places doesn't justify their actions at all but lets no look at the issue thru a key hole like so many try to do


Aren't we always reminded that Islamic terrorists kill more Muslims than anybody else? Is that because the terrorists don't think they are being treated as equal to "peaceful" Muslims? Not even in host countries that are Islamic States? Which keyhole must one look through to see the reason for Islamists killing mostly Muslims?

Is it possible that you are looking through keyholes which misdirect you from why Islamists kill in the name of Allah rather than in the name of some social injustice or lack of gainful employment?

When your position on an issue means you can't even begin to answer such a simple question, what does that say about the merits of your position? Nothing good, sir, nothing good. I do t 'live in fear'. But I do deal with reality, even when that reality doesn't fit conveniently into my belief system.

Wdmso, you keep pointing out that not every tragedy in the world is caused by terrorism. No one is saying otherwise. You are implying that because not every single crime in the world is related to terrorism, that means we don't need to be concerned with terrorism.

wdmso, why do we have drug laws? Someone got killed yesterday in a manner that had nothing to do with drugs. Drug laws don't solve all crime, so why bother?

'See how crazy that sounds? Does it sound familiar? It should, it's your logic
