Negative Perception Of Islam Increasing in USA....

According to the Washington Post, the negative perception of Islam has been increasing as of late and is even higher than post 9/11...
As the war in Iraq grinds into its fourth year, a growing proportion of Americans are expressing unfavorable views of Islam, and a majority now say that Muslims are disproportionately prone to violence, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

The poll found that nearly half of Americans -- 46 percent -- have a negative view of Islam, seven percentage points higher than in the tense months after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, when Muslims were often targeted for violence.
Americans are a tolerant people and its codified in our laws, particularly when it come to the rights associated with religion. But it not the mamby-pamby scaredy-cat tolerance that has enveloped most of Europe and has allowed religious extremists there to set-up camp and is now haunting the very societies that originally accepted them. The US does not have the level of Muslim street crime as indicated by the cold-blooded murder of filmmaker Theo van Gogh, the weeks of rioting fomented by juvenile Muslims in France or the potentially violent street protests in many cities in Europe on the innocuous Muhammad cartoons. The incredible violence associated with both the Sunni-Zaraqawi and the Shia-Sadr extremists in Iraq, the wild 7th century Taliban society in Afghanistan that pursued destructive world intervention through its ward bin-Laden and the potential horror offered by Iran in its all out pursuit of nuclear weapons to destroy Israel and others that threaten its desired regional domination are wake up calls to all of us that hold our lives and those of our children, precious.

But Americans know that our time may come as we see the Muslim world erupt in orgies of uncontrolled violence and mayhem. The USA had our 9/11 and Europe has been enduring a low level 9/11 and it is becoming painfully obvious that inclusionary policies of Western governments have done little to assist those that don't want to be included.

We have seen the enemy and we know who they are. We do not have to accept violence and threats or have to worry about the future of our children or our hard fought and won liberty. We can defend it now by dealing with the problem as soon as possible. Islam appears to be a violent, deadly and hate filled religion. Prove us otherwise. We have to demand that they adjust their way of life if they want to live in peace with us. Or we have to be prepared to fight.

Couldn't have said better myself! Well done!

After I posted What If Buddha, Jesus, And Prophet Mohammad Were Bloggers, I received death threats from Islamic extremists.

I replied them with two words - Shag Off!

Peace.

I didn't exactly use the word "shag," (I used a different word). But you know, I am supposed to be an enlightened monk and I know my limits.

Peace.
