    Not impressed. When they condemn sharia law, show support for ALAC, stop suing schools over the display of Christian symbols riot over beheadings of christians like they do over cartoons and join with the Kurds to fight these maniacs, then maybe they would be taken seriously.

    Of course its an important step. Most important part is “They also acknowledged they are working to prevent the younger members of their community from finding radical groups like ISIS attractive alternatives”.

    Note there are estimated to only be 10,000-20,000 ISIS members actively engaged on the battlefield in Iraq and Syria which is not allot. The much harder issue to deal with is preventing those who are already citizens in a western country from becoming radicalized….keeping in mind that even one person can cause catastrophic damage. A good example of that is with the recent attacks in Paris where most of the terrorists were European nationals.

    Did you ever notice that whenever Muslims make a statement after they slaughter a bunch of people that it always is about them? They always end up lecturing the rest of us on how we should respond to Muslims. It’s all that crazy we’re not all bad people stuff that is supposed to exonerate the bloodbath that just happened. The fact is Muslims and people from the West cannot coexist. Muslims want to exterminate anyone who is not them and there is no in between.

    for 10,000 or more very closely “vetted” new “Americans:” not counting the ones who keep trying to slip through our non- existent borders..this entire situation is madness and a death wish most of us do NOT understand OR share: and sadly, there is no one but a few realists who take this direct and imminent threat seriously- look at the ” pause” bill our great new leader Ryan put through- the definition of insanity is doing more of the same(wimpy, ignorant nothingness) and expect a different result/ any safer of a nation. We are doomed, pure and simple.
