I would point out that Frank Gaffney's Center for Security Policy might not be the most unbiased source.

For example:

http://biggovernment.com/fgaffney/20...es-a-crescent/

"As Logan helpfully shows, the new MDA shield appears ominously to reflect a morphing of the Islamic crescent and star with the Obama campaign logo."

The CSP has an interest in stoking fears.

I have a masters degree in National Security Studies, and am pretty well read on this issue. I will sleep fine tonight in my belief that our country is safe from an Islamic takeover.

I imagine European nations thought the same after WWII when they brought many Muslims from the nations they exerted influence over, to Europe as cheap labor...60 years later...even France has gone so far as to ban the burka, and other nations of Europe are facing difficult decisions as to what to do about neighborhoods within their cities that cops fear to tread...oh, and by the way Dearborn, Michigan, USA... http://vodpod.com/watch/3881799-shar...on-in-dearborn.

That guy will be found guilty of murder and sent to prison, just like any other American whacko who murders his wife whose name is not O.J.

1) The guy in Buffalo will not be let go because the defense lawyer abandoned that client. Cut/paste repo's earlier comment.

2) If the question of commenting on a previous post is in reference to the Sharia Law taking over the American Constitution in Dearborne, that video really proves nothing. The end all be all of legal/not legal in this country is the supreme court, not a bunch of beat cops. It is likely that their arrest and detainment would be found illegal if brought to that level, but that wouldn't help the filmmakers' point.

Unfortunately, they are provocateurs. This is simply a video generated to get people riled up. On the other hand, there are limits on free speech. Inciting riots is one. Riding the fine line between arousing base emotions like fear and anger amongst people and inciting riots is a difficult one, and the police are probably taking the conservative route and being proactive about the situation. If the reverse situation were true, and Muslims were standing outside passing literature near a "Celebrate Jesus Carnival", the police would certainly have a similar response.

As soon as the supreme court rules in favor of Sharia Law, I may be convinced. Otherwise, it's just political rhetoric.

I sat here for an hour trying to write a non-offensive post that would explain my thoughts. I've done a bunch of edits, tried to inject humor in my post and pre-apologize if anyone took my words the wrong way.

F*ck it.

The title of this thread and the PDF is the ugliest thing I've ever read here. A government think tank puts out a paper that says a very specific religion is going to ruin our country and way of life-and it incites people to get all riled up and angry. History? Do you know it?

I will not allow myself to think that way. No. No no no.

Edit: I know it's not a government agency, maybe "a think tank trying to influence government policy" might be a better term.
