Political Statement

The Nazis came to power on propaganda, lies and exaggerations. They blamed all the problems in the world on the Jews and people joined the attempt to annihilate an entire race.

They say learning history prevents it from happening again yet the same thing is happening today. The difference is Muslims are replacing Jews as the focus of our anger and hatred. This week, I got an e-mail with pictures of Muslims, in the thousands, blocking traffic while praying in midtown Manhattan. Anyone with an ounce of common sense would have known the picture was Photo Shopped, but that did not stop its circulation. Now, more and more people are insisting Obama is a Muslim, while in fact, he is a Christian and truthfully, why does his religion even come into the picture. Teh job he is doing as president, whether you like it or not is nto relgion based. Our Israeli tour guide kept saying that if you tell a lie often enough people start believing it. He said Israel's biggest problem right now are the lies that are being told about its right to exist. The lies and rumors being perpetuated about Muslims are a great problem here.

The World Trade Center and the other terrorist activities were conducted by people, sick evil people who happen to be Muslims. Let's not forget that these extremist represent a very small part of the people who practice this religion. Let's stop looking at all Muslims as if they have bombs under their clothing. Let's stop before people start calling for their internment. Let's not have a repeat of what happened to our Japanese citizens during World War II. Let's remember that they are people like you and me, parents who are here to provide a good life for themselves and their children. They are productive members of society, no different than any in the throngs of those evil protests. It is time to stop behaving like Nazis and start behaving like the Americans we are.

Great post! Let's also not forget about the non-Muslim terrorists in our country (The Oklahoma City Bomber, the D.C. snipers, the Columbine & VTech massacres, etc).

"If you tell a lie often enough people start believing it. " Well said.

I feel for the families of 9/11, but this thing is so out of control. The demonstrators were saying horrible things. This country is going to the dogs.

Politicians are disgusting too. Pelosi comes out with the stupidest remarks. Bloomberg's arrogance IMO led to this whole fiasco. And Harry Reid, after doing everything to stab Hillary in the back and get Obama elected, is now running as far away from him as he could.

Forgive the irony of this statement, but, "amen."

What about the teachers of this country where now our test results will be public knowledge and every little thing we do is under scrutiny? We're in America too, but are treated like pariahs by every facet of society. Democracy in this country is being eroded while distracting controversies drag on.

I thought about that while writing this post, but I did not want to distract from the message. I agree with you 100%.

I'm so tired of people saying, "I support their right to exercise their religion, BUT . . . " yeah, when you say that "BUT" you aren't supporting their right to exercise their religion. Generalizations are ridiculous, no matter who they're directed at.
