    It's not about "living in fear of all Muslims", it's about not wanting society to become more hateful against Jews. And as we have seen with all the anti-Jewish demonstrations and outbursts by Muslims worldwide after over 1,000 Jews were killed in one day, it's an undeniable fact that the higher the percentage of Muslims in your society, the more anti-Jewish the sentiment in your society.

    [​IMG]

    So if you increase the percentage of Muslims in your society, you increase anti-semitism (or negative sentiment towards Jews, if you want to split hairs and come up with the old excuse that Arabs are semites, too). That's just a fact.

    You also make your society significantly less tolerant towards LGBTQIA+ people. Another fact.

    This is not even about fear (although it is also a fact that your risk of terror attacks goes up with more Muslim immigration). It's about what kind of society you want or don't want.

    I don't want a society that is hateful against Jews, and I don't want a society that subjugates women, and I don't want a society that is hateful towards gay and lesbian people.

    I would be pretty happy if my society were more like Hakeem Olajuwon who became more peaceful after dedicating his life to Islam, Sadaf Jaffer, champion of woman's rights, or Yousafzai Malala who championed education for females in the face of the Taliban and is a Nobel prize winner.

    And in the US the largest attack on Jews was by a right wing extremists at the Tree of Life synagogue and the most legal opposition to LGBTQ is from the Right. The US politicians you support have pushed laws restricting discussion of LGBT topics and oppose gay marriage. Frankly I don’t think you’re an honest voice on these issues.

    And yes Islamic culture isn’t friendly to those groups either and I would certainly oppose any attempts to impose Sharia law in the US. That is not a realistic worry even in Minneapolis where my US Rep and city councilman are Muslims. I worry far more about the Republican Minnesota politicians who have said if they are in the majority will restrict abortion and other cultural issues.

    Also just noting the irony of a post suing it’s not about fear of Muslims and then posting a bunch of stuff of why Muslims should be feared.

    I wouldn’t uphold Japan as a bastion of multiculturalism considering they still discriminate against ethnic Koreans, some of who’s families have lived there for generations.

    Speaking of imposing religious and cultural values. As I’ve said my neighborhood has a lot of Somalis and there is a mosque not too far from me. A block from the mosque is a Jehovah’s Witness Church. Only one of those two groups has tried to convert me and said that I should follow their religious edicts.

    They definitely aren't, but I think that was the point of that tweet.

    It makes you wonder if ATW is fanatically pro Israel as he sees them as so islamophobic and right wing.. The wierd ferocity is sort of reminiscent of Germanic fascism.

    Seriously a planned invasion of military age men? In that very pic there is a guy who looks like he’s at least in his 60’s. Next to him is a guy with a visible guy. There is also an old women.

    At this rate it wouldn’t surprise me if next time I cross the border someone post a tweet about me saying “Dangerous Chinese Martial Artist infiltrates US!”

    Ooh chemistry and biology backgrounds.. I suppose when my dad came here he was part of an invasion too since he was a grad student in physics. One of his friends from college also came here too with a dangerous chemistry degree that he used at his job in Exxon.
