Go to the sidewalk in front of your local synagogue every morning for a week with a poster that says "Down with Moses". Tell us what happens.

The next week do the same ion front of your local Catholic Church, with a sign that says
"Down with Jesus." Tell us what happens

The next week do the same in front of your local Mosque with a sign that says "Down with Mohammed." We'll read about what happens in the news.
You know, I have attended Catholic, Baptist and Jehovah's Witness and a couple of other miscellaneous Christian services, but I've never attended a Jewish or Muslim service. I think maybe before I go prophet bashing in front of houses of worship, maybe I should attend a Jewish service and then a Muslim service (if I can even find a mosque within 200 miles of where I live).

I don't know where you live but I suspect there may be a mosque or some sort of Islamic worship center near you.
Here in Northwest Ohio I'm no more than 40 miles away from a mosque.
I pass this one everyday on my way to work.

Islamic Center of Greatre Toledo Ohio Muslim Islam Community
It's been around for pretty long time --- probably longer than some of the churches in the area.

this is where it started & this location is now home to Islamic worship once again.

put your zip code & country in & you can search for a place for Islamic prayer near you

So, what youre saying, is that you've bveen speaking with great fervor about things you know next to nothing about.

I figured that out already, but thanks for the admission.

Carry on.

It's not all people who believe in Allah who want to maim us.
It's a munchy bunch of weird O's.

Just let us remember the days of WWII when a propagandist who was himself one of the most prejudiced public figures in the west next to maybe Hitler himself was also one of the most powerful and influential.

I agree that most Muslim don't want to harm us directly. But they also refuse, as a group, to reject and denounce those of their number who do.

Funny, I don't hear many christians denouncing Robertson when he spouts his bull****, or that wackjob Phelps when he protests military funerals. Nor do I hear any denounce all the false prophets on TBN.

But then people are always quick to say; "do as I say, not as I do."

Funny, I haven't heard Robertson issue any statements promising anyone a collection of sex slaves in the afterlife for engaging in suicidal acts of murder and incitement to genocide.

Also, if you haven't heard the Chritians in this country denounce Phelps, then you may have a serious hearing defiencency.

Come now, is that the best you can do?
