In the wake of the Boston bombing, Muslims "find ourselves in that very awkward and uncomfortable place," said Mather Hathout, the senior advisor of the Muslim Public Affairs Council.

"Muslims, don’t lose heart," he said. "We are really good people. We are really good Americans."

And we need not apologize for killing Muslims in preemptive self-defense.

Muslims, don't lose heart

Non-muslims, don't lose head.

The association of Islam and death are so tightly intertwined that even Alexander the Great couldn't sort it out (Gordian Knot).

The Muslim's in this country need to acknowledge the presence of a large percentage of radical fundamentalists and radical Imam’s and renounce them and help us deport them. Then I will start believing that there are patriotic muslims.

Islam did not appear until the 7th century AD. The Macedonian was doing his thing long before Christ was born..

I think the great question to ask one of these “peaceful” Muslims is, “Do you believe in the Koran?” If the answer is yes they believe in killing infidels. It’s really that simple.

There is a very simple test to see if someone is a good Muslim.

Ask them straight out to say that *particular* Muslims who committed a *particular* terrorist act are “bad Muslims”; and to condemn Muslim terror conducted against non-Muslims.

Those who are bad Muslims will lie to you by deceit. They will not condemn particular Muslims for a terrorist act, nor will they call it a terrorist act or call them bad Muslims. Then they will condemn “all acts of terrorism”, not specifically “Muslim acts of terrorism”.

The fall back position to these lies is that they the Muslim terrorists were insane, so were not responsible for their acts.

I have never, ever, heard a Muslim pass this test. And only if they do, they *might* be a good Muslim. Until they do, we have no choice but to assume the worst.

“Muslims, don’t lose heart,” he said. “We are really good people. We are really good Americans.” And he forgot to say we really love the Jews and Christians.

You have to admit the assertion was jarring. Could use some reworking.

Islam is the mortal enemy of Western civilization, and has been for nearly fourteen centuries. There will never be a peaceful coexistence with them. No Muslim will ever be my countryman. I will never trust one of them.

Yup...in EVERY Muslim there is a dormant trait disorder called SJS (Sudden Jihad Syndrome)...

It comes to fruition when exposed to extremism...

When the Rosenbergs gave up the nuclear bomb secrets, America did not respond with a Krisallnacht against all Jews; Americans don’t do that. Nonetheless, when one picks up a snake, it’s wise to be sure it doesn’t have rattles on its tail.

"I have never, ever, heard a Muslim pass this test."

So in a round about way, we have reached the same conclusion...there is no such thing as a good muslim!

The followers of Islam are bad - evil people. See Dr. Bill Warner at www.politicalislam.com. Educate yourself.

Shouldn’t they be asked if they believe in forgiveness as in turning the other cheek when offended? Shouldn’t we ask them if they believe in love(treat) your neighbor as you would yourself? I wonder what there answers would be? And would they know who taught this as values to follow?

Not really. What I have offered is an ‘acid test’. That I have never met a Muslim who passed it does not mean that there are not some who could.

Comparatively, during the HUAC investigations, looking for and finding communist infiltrators in the US government, there was a simple trick to find a fanatical communist.

It was to tell them a funny joke, to see if they were capable of “honest laughter”. This was because it was discovered that fanatics, including communist ones, have a very restrictive world view, defining everything in light of their fanatical beliefs. If they cannot fit it in, they discard it as useless information.

Typically, people use laughter as a psychological defensive technique when they observe or imagine the irrational. But this is a different technique than is used by fanatics.

It was not definitive, but it was a good indicator.

Many Muslims are “passive” Muslims, and while they can be organized into a mob, they are just followers, having no great initiative to act on their own. Without a fanatic to push them, their behavior is ordinary, and not particularly anti-non-Muslim.

Having no natural impulse to act makes them good candidates to embrace a reformed Islam, as it is just easier to do nothing than to be aggressive.
