29. Au contraire, mon frere.
I am quite aware what the ban included. It was, however, not written to ban yarmulkes or crucifixes, as you know.

And your concept of "keeping the Muslims in check" is one that I'm sure supporters of Hitler used about the Jews, and that Columbus used about the Indians, and that Andrew Jackson used about the Cherokee. It is just as empty. We've killed close to half a million Muslims in the past 15 years, between the two Bush's, and we've created conditions that have led to the deaths of over a million more. And that's not likely to stop under Bush anytime soon, with his destruction of the infrastructure of Iraq going into summer in the dessert.

How many people have to die before you call it a slaughter? 3000? 400,000? Give me a number.

And your statement that "more Muslims have been slaughtered by Muslims than by any other people" proves my point. Islam is not a monolithic culture. When Iraq and Iran fought, that was a case of two different nations warring, not Islam fighting Islam. So you've demonstrated my point that you can't lump all Muslims together. Or, if you want to go the other route, more Christians have killed other Christians than any other group. Most murders of Christians in America are by Christians. Timothy McVeigh was a Christian. Since Christians have been responsible for more deaths of Christians, why don't we declare war on all Christian people?

Are attitudes and stereotypes and wars against Muslim nations and Muslim people is nothing but pure racism. No different than any other genocidal nation in history. We had a real enemy on 9-11. That enemy, the brother of Bush's first business partner, is still free, but we've slaughtered hundreds of thousands of others because they obeyed the same book. And some people, sadly, seem to think that's okay.
