    I am not opposed to the Koran or Mosque Building. I, in fact, love Muslims and Muslim Culture. I am envious that you have two wives. If I had two wives, they'd both be working and I would become the biggest couch potato on this planet. By the way, many Muslims served under President Bush and destroyed Saddam and wasted the Taliban. So the US voices that you are protesting were also Muslim. Not just Jewish or Christian. Don't you think that the young Afghani Girl on the cover of Time Magazine proved that the Taliban are absolutely crazy? Don't you think it was Hitlerian of Saddam to have gassed the Kurds? Don't lump me together with the Muslimphobes. I've been in your countries and had a good time. I like your people. I like the food. You know this is a free country over here. Don't bother our Muslims or stir them up. Leave them alone. We have the best Muslims.
