Letter: At least we have our guns

Prince Charles came forth recently denouncing Islam and the horrendous chaos and murderous behavior of the Muslim community that is taking place in Europe. The guilty verdict had just come down for the two Islamists who butchered the officer in broad daylight on the street of London.

Also, in an interview by a Fox News reporter here in U.S. last night we learn of Anjem Choudary. He came to London from Pakistan and is a community organizer (sound familiar?). He is organizing protests over Britain's laws and implementing Sharia law.

Members of his organization are handing out notices that anyone caught selling, buying or consuming alcohol is to receive lashes.

Our president declares "we are not and will never be at war with Islam." He refuses to acknowledge that is who we have been at war with for well over 10 years now!

Why go to Britain first? Because they are even more polite than Americans and the citizens are unarmed, as Canadians are. Think about that.

Muslims have attempted to continue their practice of Sharia law in this country but, thankfully due to our justice system on local and state level they have been incarcerated for such practice.

David Michael Lynch's movie was banned by the Hollywood elite from theaters across the country but has been available on the internet. I will suggest people spend some of their time watching "They Come to America" and pay attention. You will have an eye opening that will enlighten you as to why our southern borders aren't secure! It has finally caught the attention of a federal judge who came down on the Department of Homeland Security. The judge was furious with DHS and its part in human smuggling over our southern border.

The United States is a sitting duck from the north and the south. At least we have our guns and Second Amendment rights!

Article comment by: what's so bad about the 7th century? .....

I just think it's interesting that Islam's spread cam at the time when what passed for the civilised world had collapsed. The western Roman Empire had finally succombed to their abuses of allies, and to changing climate which pressed the Turkic peoples against their eastern fringes, the eastern Empire exhausting itself in wars with the Parthians (Persians). Their success later in the Balkans really was just a matter of numbers rather than superior fighting abilities - at Kosovo, the Serbs destroyed the Sultan's army on the battlefield, but the Sultan was able to raise another army and the Serbians were not. In 1571, the Spanish and allies destroyed the Ottoman Empire's navy at Lepanto, but it was eventually rebuilt and the Sultan held land areas around the Mediteranean. The Muslims are not inexorable - they can be turned back by determined and principled stands. And they and their preoccupation with 7th century desert mores must be.

It would be nice if people would put away party affiliation and just look at facts. That will be the only Saving Grace of all of us
Everyday we wake to news that is disturbing at best.
Former Defense Secretary Robert Gate's new book not yet on the shelf and is noted as a "Bomb Shell" telling us even more of we already suspect is true.

"The highest officer in the land, head of Dept of Justice, Eric Holder, is his best buddy who will do anything to protect him. (Fast and Furious, Benghazi, etc)"

So many times in the past you have "demanded" to find out the truth about what happened in Benghazi, are you sure you really want to know now that the GOP may have had previous knowledge? The main man himself, Boehner is resisting calls for an independent investigative committee having previously said, "he was privy to classified information about U.S. operations in Libya." I don't think you can handle the truth. Maybe that is why you remain "mum" on the situation. What else did he know?

Mr. Parker, Our border not being secured on the south is part of the problem of the U.S. vulnerability contributing to being taken from within. It isn't just illegal Mexicans coming across that border and this current admin. does not want that border secured.
Watch the video "They Come To America" and it clearly shows the problem.

I refer you to the Black Book of Communism. I have studied who killed who and how many and believe me, Christianity can't hold a candle to the multiple millions killed by communist governments. We have rescued far more than we have killed and we didn't wantonly kill them because we were taking over their country, we fought and killed to liberate others, then went back home, taking nothing - but leaving many of our own dead on foreign soil under white crosses and Stars of David.

I also refer you to Jihad by Paul Fregosi. Most of Europe was Christian until the muslims marauded up and down killing all those in sight or taking them as slaves/captives until they were forced to become muslims.

Fregosi's book is not religious, simply historical.

The Crusades were fought after Islam had already roamed for 700 years, killing and destroying everything in sight. The Catholic Christians finally retaliated to retrieve the land that had been taken from them. Muslim children are not taught this FACT. They are taught Christians started it. Patently false.

"I know where I stand and what will be my line in the sand". What if your line gets crossed mr. parker? What are you going to do?

Article comment by: pl .....

you're welcome. Now if everyone would please plug their ears every time Bob Moore rants about the current criminal occupant of the White House (which provided us a birth certificate which lists the birth hospital's name as it only was known several years later, along with several other rank aspects of forgery). It's pretty hard to pursue a legal, patriotic framework for America's restoration when the "President" - who, incidentally, claimed that his father born in 1936 fought in WWII - presumes with every utterance, and the fact of his continued presence, that we are imbeciles and contemptible. Arrest Barry Soetoro - Barack Obama, the first step to re-claiming this nation for which so many sacrificed their lives.

I guess a lot of people on here forget how many millions of people were killed in the name of Christianity. To blame all Muslims would be like accusing all men of being pedophiles since most pedophiles are men.

We are under attack from the north and south. Canada and Mexico are doing well because of NAFTA, oil prices and Mexico sending us its illiterate, untrained and in some cases criminals.

The bigger problem is we are being destroyed from within. Our culture is coming under attack from the left wing and we are divided more than at any time since the Civil War.

I think our future is going to be Balkanization. I know where I stand and what will be my line in the sand.

@Ms. Smith.....Mr. Moore is not going to acknowledge history's lessons regarding the expansionist nature of Islam. He won't even concede that expansionism in its early Islamic stages presents an innocuous face, followed in stages as the Islamic percentage of a population increases to agitation, then violent persecutions. When these steps were not necessary, in the context of ruinous Byzantine-Parthian warmongering, the Islamicists could, and did, move in for the kill upon wearied adversaries. The Crusades - admittedly, with their ignorant abuses in some cases - and other pushbacks by Christian forces were in response to Islamic expansionism. For all you Muslim aficionados out there, history and contemporary events indicate that if 70% of Kingman's population were Muslim, you would see your status, and even your safety, in a very different light.

Mr. Moore, You too can look up the Muslim Islam Sharia beliefs on the internet, one doesn't have to read the Quran itself, as stated, "it is still amazing how these people so skewed up what is suppose to peaceful beliefs" by creating Sharia law by which they practice. Yes they come here and attempt to practice Islam Sharia and some have been incarcerated for their practice of crime under their skewed "Family Honor" belief.
Webster Dictionary, Muslim: A follower of Islam.
Muslim is not a nationality, it is one who follows an absolute belief and practice of such.

“I have never read the Quran, I don't intend to.”

“I have read on the internet the Muslim Islam belief and practices…”

And therein lies the problem.

“They are willing to war with any ‘infidel’ who does not share or want to participate in their Sharia Law. That is just Fact.”

Nope, as usual, it is not a “fact.”

I have never read the Quran, I don't intend to. It is supposedly all love and peace, but how those people ever took such a peaceful teaching and got their mind set so skewed up that they are willing to go to war to "protect" their peace is truly beyond understanding. I have read on the internet the Muslim Islam belief and practices as well as the book given by Dr. Saleem. They are willing to war with any "infidel" who does not share or want to participate in their Sharia Law. That is just Fact.

Here we go again, experienced "everything" in life" and is an expert on Muslim and Islam by association yet I still don't see where it says "personally read the Qur'an" front to back. Credibility?

There are plenty of people in the US interested - especially if that is the only way to save our country. Don't worry your little head about that one. It wasn't just our brave Founders that had a pair, there are still Americans willing to fight and die on our own soil to save us.

To another poster - My brother lived over 25 years in muslim countries. He knew first hand. A friend of many years just spent a month doing missionary work in a muslim country - she knows and so do the many Christians who go to muslim countries to do what they can to help the terrible misery women and children live in.

I have acually read the koran. It clearly denouces any kind of violence. How the zelots claim to get some of their jihad ideas from the koran is a mystery to me. I think these are just folks who are no different than the italian mafia, the chinese triads, the japanese yakuza or the bloods and the crips.

In the end they are nothing more than a petty crimal gang attempting to control local goverments with intimidation. We need to destroy them just like we did the others. Yes, I know it is on going battle with all of them.

"Armed insurrection anyone? Who is going to lead your "insurrection"? Hannity, Limbaugh, Lynch"? They aren't going to soil their dainty hands..No, you will have to come up with some one else. Somebody from Kingman maybe? Nah, they are too busy standing in line to get their lottery tickets, and too pre-occupied with trying to figure what scheme next they can use to get another "free check" out of the "gubmint". I can't think of anybody who would lead a tea-insurrection. Any volunteers?

@ Roy

You're preaching to the choir Roy. Although I have been to many Muslim nations, I don't know anything about them. The only person here that claims to is the same individual that has experienced "everything" in life and knows every Republican on a personal nature.

Kingman citizen:

Your thinking is flawed.

We are a nation of laws. When a POTUS completely ignores our laws, we again use the laws. The House would vote to impeach Obama, Harry Reid in the Senate would not allow anything to come up for a vote that would hurt his precious obama.

Meanwhile, obama has skillfully packed courts with his radicals. The highest officer in the land, head of Dept of Justice, Eric Holder, is his best buddy who will do anything to protect him. (Fast and Furious, Benghazi, etc)

Another option. Vote them out. Except, obama skillfully and FRAUDULENTLY won the last election.

Still, we can keep trying to vote someone better in as POTUS. And win the Senate. Except for people like you who have just declared, you will vote for an obama type again.

Armed insurrection anyone?

@maggie pasaro -

Islam (/ˈ ɪ slɑ ː m/ [note 1] Arabic: ا ل إ س ل ا م ‎ , al-ʾ Islā m IPA: [ælʔ ɪ sˈ læː m] ( listen)[note 2]) is a monotheistic and Abrahamic religion articulated by the Qur'an, a book considered by its adherents to be the verbatim word of God (Arabic: ا ل ل ه ‎ Allā h) and by the teachings and normative example (called the Sunnah and composed of Hadith) of Muhammad, considered by them to be the last prophet of God. An adherent of Islam is called a Muslim.

So many on this site talk about the Koran and muslims but most have no idea what Islam is all about. I wonder how many have read even one page of the koran. First it is not written in English so how would most on here be able to even discuss their muslim religion or their "bible." especially statements of what is written in the koran, Plus probably 98% have never been in a muslim country so try talking about something you know about, mainly spreading lies.... A good example is saying what the koran says but do not speak or write the muslim languages. And how many have been to a muslim country? Probably one or two. So how much of what you write can we believe? None!!! If you lie about one subject, can we believe any thing you talk about? NO!!! Muslims are not angels. Remember the young soldier the muslims cut his throat on tv? Makes you want to be neighbors with them, doesn't it? If so move to the country of your choice, but do not try to change America.
