this IS one of the sickest things i've heard

no, i'm not angry at the host. i would have done the same thing, making the point.

i'm angry with US. our citizens

i don't want terrorists in this country any more than anyone else. but remember the people who bombed oklahoma city were NOT muslim. i don't believe one women's health clinic in america was bombed by a muslim either.

i have only known two muslims well. one was a sweet woman i worked with (i didn't even know she was muslim until someone else told me years later) and another was someone i met by chance. they were both good people who were NOT terrorist. i also know they will NEVER be terrorists. i'm not sure i can even say that about some 'sects' in the christian right
terrorists come in all shapes and colors. remember that

In U.S., fear and distrust of Muslims runs deep


By Bernd Debusmann, Special Correspondent Fri Dec 1, 9:05 AM ET
WASHINGTON (Reuters)- When radio host Jerry Klein suggested that all Muslims in the United States should be identified with a crescent-shape tattoo or a distinctive arm band, the phone lines jammed instantly.
The first caller to the station in Washington said that Klein must be "off his rocker." The second congratulated him and added: "Not only do you tattoo them in the middle of their forehead but you ship them out of this country ... they are here to kill us."
Another said that tattoos, armbands and other identifying markers such as crescent marks on driver's licenses, passports and birth certificates did not go far enough. "What good is identifying them?" he asked. "You have to set up encampments like during World War Two with the Japanese and Germans."
At the end of the one-hour show, rich with arguments on why visual identification of "the threat in our midst" would alleviate the public's fears, Klein revealed that he had staged a hoax. It drew out reactions that are not uncommon in post-9/11 America.
"I can't believe any of you are sick enough to have agreed for one second with anything I said," he told his audience on the AM station 630 WMAL (http://www.wmal.com/), which covers Washington, Northern Virginia and Maryland
"For me to suggest to tattoo marks on people's bodies, have them wear armbands, put a crescent moon on their driver's license on their passport or birth certificate is disgusting. It's beyond disgusting.............

Tattoo and wear armbands...isn't that what Hitler did to the Jews? Yes, the terrorists have won...we have given up our souls.
