    I guess I haven't been paying attention, but wtf are we doing this for...what goal are we trying to accomplish?

    And then this stupid Republican from California comes out and says they are no different than having hearings on Nazis or the KKK???

    I think that they are trying to help the country have a better understanding of muslim viewpoints and culture with the hearings in order to gain a better understanding of the religion of choice of the majority of modern day terrorists.

    :confused: do you mean to say they are trying to paint all Muslims as terrorists? If so, how counterproductive.

    I dont think so at all.

    The fact is that the majority of terrorist activities have been carried out by people who claim Islam as their faith. This fact has led many to do what you say above and paint all muslims as terrorists.

    These hearings are an opportunity for the american people to hear from and about true muslims and giving americans the opportunity to see that the majority of muslims are not like those who hijacked their religion in the name of terrorism.

    So I guess the moral of the thread is that human rights violations and treason are A-OK w/Ravi so long as Muslims are doing it.

    Thanks, Rav!

    I hope you are correct but somehow I doubt that is the intent.

    The thing is...the majority of Americans ARE NOT terrorists, whether they follow a religion or not. This, IMO, is a smack in the fact to millions of Americans because of their religion.

    I don't see this doing any good.

    The goal is to see if there is anything that can be done to stop them. It's a bad thing and we would be really stupid to pretend it doesn't exist.
    It makes sense to try to stop people from killing other people.
