"Most of our family and friends are Muslims and they're descent and genuine people"
I'm sure they are. Trouble is, I can't verify that about any one of them sufficiently for the safety of my society. There's the rub. And I'm certainly not going to bank the safety of my society on the anecdotal evidence and on the word of some anonymous person on the Web.
You know you are so right, you can't verify that about our Muslim family members. Or anyone else. Why, just today after a white man killed 7 elderly people and a nurse at a nursing home, I was thinking, golly if only we could tell ahead of time if these white dudes are a threat to our society, especially our elders. Especially on the heels of so, so many incidents of angry white men shooting up offices, post offices, churches, schools, ski lifts, restaurants... you get the idea. But we can't. What should we do with them? Och, if only they were all named Mo-ham-mad.
Hello, I'm an angry "white" man.
I'm a threat to bigoted assholes of all colors and cultures.
Oh yes, I smoke, drink, and swear in public, and I've known some Muslims(and Ex-Muslims) who I actually consider friends.
Someone arrest me, quick!
