    Good article----more proof that we either don't know or won't say who or what the real enemy is.

    Because some in our government are too busy catowing to PC ideals to admit who they are much to the detriment of the rest of us.

    Great article, Bonnie. It should be required reading by all Americans.

    You still haven't said who it is. Is it the whole religion of Islam?

    I'd hate to think it is all Islam, but I worry about the teachings that say it's okay to kill anyone who is not converted. And when I see young Muslim teenagers in this country interviewed saying they would be homocide bombers if given the chance I wonder who is teaching them to think this way??? You tell me what you think? Is it other cultures also that embrace the the radical teachings of Islam, is it Americans that have converted as well??

    That's what makes me wonder--is it the whole religion that needs to be wiped out ( impossible in my book) or certain sects that focus on this part of the Koran.Can these "teachers" be driven from America without causing a civil rights uproar? I'm noticing that the adminstration has one sort of vague description of the enemy while some posters feel as if every muslim in the world should be killed.

    My opinion is that somewhere in between those two extremes is the answer. I worry that Muslims in this country for all purposes remain silent and here is where I think the author of this article makes her case. We have become so fearfull of the appearance of profiling at airports and on campus that how can we possibly address this life and death problem with any kind of meaningful results?? In other countries such as Britain wich has such a large population of Muslims and their very porous borders just like ours all I can see is a never ending police investigation and round up... after the fact. No one seems to even be willing to address ways of seperating peaceful Muslims from radical fundamentalists.
