I never said that Arabs were not doing the majority of terrorism in this country. All I said is that white organizations do it, too. It’s more prevalent than people think, because it usually doesn’t get a lot of press, but that doesn’t mean it compares to Arab terrorism. However, how much press did it get when a white supremacist had a huge amount of cyanide and was planning on attacking a building? You would think people might have heard of that. I would think that violent set of disagreements on those posts might have brought my opinion home to you. And as for religion, what the hell is the Christian Identity movement? They have a highly perverse view of Christianity, but they think they are religious. I never even mentioned the Order (an offshoot of them )with all of their bank robberies–religious based.
There are a large number of muslims in this country, mostly peaceful. Are you going to track them all? I’m sure there is serious surveillance going on. The terror cells tend to get infiltrated by police. I’m all for tracking the people from radical mosques or jihadist websites.
We have a hell of a lot more flights in this country than you do in Israel. Since 9/11, have we had a lot of hijackings? It’s 6 AM, and I’ve been up all night, so I could be wrong, but I can’t think of a single one. There were issues with attempts in 2004. I’m sure I will get corrected if I am wrong. We are doing something right.
Who has been doing mass murders here recently? Is it Arabs? No. The recent ones that come to mind are our white psycho female ex-postal employee very close to where I work, and Virginia Tech which was a male disturbed Asian college student. “Most mass murderers are male, white, conservative and come from relatively stable, lower-middle-class backgrounds” (yes, that does not fit the latest murders) http://www.mayhem.net/Crime/murder1.html But once again, I’m not saying that we shouldn’t worry about Arabs, so don’t have a fit.
You complain I bring up McVeigh from 1996 (by far the most serious domestic terrorist act). (Personally, if I were going to do terrorism, I would pick a building that didn’t have a day care center in it.) You mention Kahane–he was assasinated in 1990. That doesn’t mean it wasn’t important, but don’t criticize my time frame.
I really need to go to bed and fret. Peace be upon you.]]>
