Retired ATF agent: Al Qaeda is more like Klan or Neo-Nazis than actual Muslims
We who have spent our lives in law enforcement have seen this drill before. Weve watched the KKK disguise themselves as Christians, burn crosses at their rallies, the symbol of Christianity.

They talk about Jesus and the bible and on their sheets they wear a cross in a circle with a drop of blood in the center. They claim it symbolizes the blood of Jesus.

Not much solace when they are dragging you behind their pickup truck, bombing your synagogue, or shooting a black leader, like Medgar Evers. Did we really believe they were Christians?

They said they were, they used many symbols, language and tried to cloak themselves in Christianity. However as Americans we understand the difference. We dont attack the local Christian Church, or burn it out, or burn the Bible to disgrace it or its congregations after a KKK attack.

It is the same for Muslims.

Muslims dont feel responsible for 9/11 because they are not not anymore than Christians feel responsible for the terroristic acts of the Ku Klux Klan.

In 2008 in Columbia Tennessee, I led a task force of police, ATF, FBI, state bomb and arson investigators out to capture three Nazis who had firebombed the local Islamic Center.

These Tennessee Nazis claimed that they had firebombed the Islamic Center because of what goes on in there. Of course, what went on in there was prayer, freedom of assembly, children playing, dinners with the members and the things that go on in every house of worship in America.

When this attack happened, no one sought to blame it on the larger Christian community even though these two Nazi corporals claimed to be Christians.

Americans could clearly see the difference, and we have to clearly see the difference between UBL and his associates and his Al Qaeda virus and greater Islam. Those who cant see or wont see our only playing into the script written by the terrorists themselves.

If you want to take the air out of the bags of the terrorists, then stop connecting their actions to all Muslims which gives them "legitimacy". It's really that simple.

3. Now we're talking.
Link Right-wing extremists (ie: Tea Party Republicans) with Al Qaeda.

6. No shit...
they're criminals. And criminals are everywhere and of all religions. Mostly male, though. I think they resemble our gangs.

8. A voice of knowledge, sanity, and reason being drowned in a sea of ignorance, insanity,
and absurdity. ;)
