22. Just to be clear.. they are not interested in giving up their own civil liberties

...they simply want to take away liberties from others.

First and foremost, they don't want religious liberty to apply to practitioners of Islam. Frankly, they don't want any non Judeo-Christian belief, but mostly Islam. They want the mosques closed. They want the practitioners exiled or imprisoned (mostly imprisoned).

Let's say you're 50. If you are not well read or well traveled, what you know about Islam has come to you through the MSM. It consists of:

PLO terrorism
Algerian hijackers
Iranian hostage takers
Hammas
Libyan terrorism
The Achilie Lauro seizure
Hostages in Beiruit
Iraq
Al Quaida
The USS Cole
The Bali disco bombings
The African embassy bombings
9-11
Iran goes nuclear
Boston

Never mind that we supported Muslim nations in the Balkans in the 90s, or that we sold weapons to Iran & Iraq, or that we defended Kuwait, or that we were once supporters of Osama Bin Laden, or that we supported Egyptian control of the Suez when France and England wanted it kept in European hands.
