    That Muslim's could persist in suggesting that they are "Religion of Peace" when they essentially threaten bodily harm or death if a payment of blackmail is not received on a semi-annual basis is beyond comprehension. While I am certain that no all adherents subscribe to this view, the fact that their theology allows for it and that they sit silent as it is being advanced tells me that no matter how much I sympathize for their situation, their religion is one to be viewed with great suspicion and they should not be granted any permission to travel to or emigrate to any Western nation. In fact it is time to start turning them out, unless and until the "moderates" who disagree and disapprove of this start taking public positions decrying it and back those statements up with real action. Otherwise they are painting a well deserved bulls eye on themselves as it is a human right to defend oneself from invasion from evil.
