Shark vs Sharia

A response to Reg Henrys op-ed piece : Strict Muslim law is very distant concern.


Intro:
Originally started on 9/19/10 or so it has taken a while to get it finished,edited and make a suitable web page.

Now,,I am often flat out astounded by what many columnists put out but when I ran into this particular writer I thought of ol'psygon/pkpost' from the excite boards.

After I had read and responded to another article by this same author which was called,”Aargh!We're all at sea with the tea party!”,,which can be found here:http://www.scrippsnews.com/content/henry-arrgh-were-all-sea-tea-party ( This is my response to that one:

http://www.scrippsnews.com/content/henry-arrgh-were-all-sea-tea-party#comment-26519 ),,

I ran into this one which prompted a the below reply from me.:

response to:

http://www.scrippsnews.com/content/henry-strict-muslim-law-very-distant-concern



In order to do as much justice as is possible to R.Henry's word work I feel it is needful to provide his comments,remarks and/or points along with my responses,retorts and/or counterpoints.

My contributions to this 'conversation' will be indicated by seperation and by a tilday (one of these ~ ) emediately preceding and following them.





Henry: Strict Muslim law is very distant concern

By REG HENRY, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Submitted by SHNS on Wed, 09/08/2010 - 12:38





Americans live in the Home of the Brave but sometimes you would never know it from some of their preposterous fears. Every so often, a new fear will circulate among the public like a bolt of electricity to thrill people with imaginary dread.



~ No experienced 'dread' is imaginary.The threat may be,,but the dread of the threat is not.
Terrorists utilize that fact very well.~



When I went on vacation this summer to Westport, Mass., the fear du jour was sharks, an old reliable source of panic.



~ Considering that sharks are predators that have been known to attack humans,( http://www.sharks.org.za/sites-of-shark-attacks.html ),it's not unreasonable for some to fear meeting one in the water on the day one went into the water.

Especially if they have absolutely no experience with sharks.

Is it?

Regardless,,I agree,,they are less dangerous than other perceived threats,,like auto accidents and murderous attacks by fanatical religious zealots.



Sharks:

Sharks — Infoplease.com

The most common type of attack is the so-called "hit and run" assault. The shark bites and then quickly releases the person and disappears. ...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shark_attack

The United States has had more reported shark attacks than any other country, with a total of 1,049 attacks (49 fatal) during the past 339 years (1670-2009)+As of 2009, the ISAF recorded a total of 2,251 attacks worldwide since 1580, with 464 attacks being fatal.

~Just look at that,,in America during the past 339 years (1670-2009) sharks have only attacked 1,049 times and killed only 49 folks.

Autos claim about 4,000 lives a year and murderous Muslims have cranked out 1028 in just 30 days!!!



You are 100% correct.Death by shark attack is not equal to auto deaths or psychotic Islamic murders.



And yet,,like with other forms of tragedy,,one doesn't quite grasp the impact unless it strikes self ,loved ones or in one's own community.~:



James Willie Tellasmon age 9 died November 21, 1998 while swimming off Ocean Beach, Florida. Sadly his torso and legs washed up to shore the next day, and his arms and head were never recovered. Due to the wounds experts were able to establish that the attack was from a tiger shark about six feet in length. Ocean beach is located in Indian River County at Jaycee Park.

http://www.listphile.com/World_Shark_Attack_Database/Fatal_Shark_Attack_Tellasmon

-



One was seen (supposedly) a mile out to sea, and the lifeguards closed the local beach. At that distance, the shark is unlikely to have noticed this closure, but if it did, bubbles would have come out of its smiling mouth indicating laughter.



~Just like Bin Ladin and millions of Sharia compliant Islamist terrorists on shore and off shore most likely did after the WTC mass murder caused Americans and the world to want to run away from possible confrontations with terrorists by ignoring the threat,,right?How fast can the avergae shark swim one mile?~





What wusses these mortals be. It's sharks one day, bedbugs the next, various types of flu every other year and so on. These alarms take a demonstrated danger to people and blow the risk out of all proportion.



~To compare 'fanatacism driven psycopathic murderous behaviour' that is specifically intended to cause human fatalaties to occasionally fatal shark attacks,non fatal bedbugs and various types of rarely fatal flu viruses does nothing but demean the intelligence of the reader.Yet,,they undeniably are 'demonstrated dangers' none the less,,right?Exactly what should have been done?Should the lifeguards NOT close the beach and open them selves up to the terror of having made a tragic mistake and the possibility of legal ramifications that are often incurred under Americas overly lawsuite friendly laws?I have a sneaking suspicion that they simply followed the rules of their job that were in compliance with the old adage,,"Better safe than sorry."~





But my award for most overblown fear this summer goes to the threat of Sharia law -- or Islamic law -- being imposed in the United States. When I say threat, I use it in the "pull my other leg, it's got a bell on it" sense. As threats go, commercial aviation is more threatened by me wiggling my ears and making myself airborne.



~It sure is since even the aviation industry in Sharia controlled nations would be 'ruined' if a man could do so.Of course,,your 'threat' is much more unrealistic than the threat of Sharia Law coming to America (and even shark attacks) when the recent behaviour of our POTUS and other high ranking gov officials formed a 'constructive compliance' with Sharia by displaying NO rejection of it while soundly decrying an American Citizens observance of his First Amendment rights to protest violence in the name of a religion by burning a book.And then not leveling equally enthusiasm filled rhetoric at the equally legal and equally provocativly controversial, insensitive,arrogant,domineering,demeaning act of building an Islamic center so close that it can look over Ground Zero adds one more layer to the 'world perception' that Islams Sharia commands more respect,loyaly and support from the U.S. ruling elite than America's Laws and Citizens do.~





Yet, incredibly, some Americans really do believe that President Obama is determined to introduce Sharia law, and they think the same of those Muslims associated with the controversial community center/mosque proposed near ground zero in New York City.



~Let's examine the the facts of the matter and see how 'incredible' it may really be that some folks may really believe that.



Considering that BO was raised for a while in an Islamic country,is influenced by his father and step fathers ideologies,,was a member of a Farakhan friendly church pastors 'fairly' close circle for 20 years,says the 'Muslim call to prayer'is the 'most beautiful sound',Called America one of the worlds largest Muslim countries(With 57 states?Remember?Was that fatigue of the tongue,,or was it a freudian slip?Regardless,,it's patently untrue according to demographics.) and has just demonstrated more respect for Sharia and Muslim concerns than for the 1st Amendment by publicly requesting Korans not being burnt so as to NOT offend Muslim-Americans and Muslims in general while NOT requesting the Cordoba house be re-located so as to NOT offend those Americans who lost loved ones an airplane landing gears throw away,American Christians and other Americans in general,,it is NOT so incredible is it?

Rauf IS such a vocal advocate of Sharia in America that.:

He argued, quote, that "the American political structure is Sharia compliant," continuing, quote, "For America to score even higher on the 'Islamic' or 'Sharia' compliance scale, America would need to do two things: invite the voices of all religions to join the dialogue in shaping the nation's practical life, and allow religious communities more leeway to judge among themselves according to their own laws."

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,593329,00.html

-

Given that,,do you NOT think he specifically implies having a seperate set of laws for different religions?Would that not mean there would be Sharia in AMERICA?

Does he not lead those Muslims associated with the controversial community center/mosque called Cordoba House at Park51 proposed to be built a landing gears throw from ground zero in New York City?

So what's so incredible that folks may beleive he is advancing Islam & Sharia over those dead bodies that Sharia devout Islamists murdered to advance the 'religious-political' system of Islamic Sharia?



Please tell me exactly what's so incredible about folks getting the impression that there is a corelation between the two mens agendas?~





In a protest there last month, people carried signs painted in dripping blood-red letters that spelled "SHARIA." I get the same warning in e-mails dripping with fearful hyperbole.

These folks have the mistaken idea that Sharia law, which governs the behavior of Muslims, is all about beheadings, stonings and cutting off of hands -- all of which does pass for entertainment in countries still living in the 14th century.



~Those folks were protesting Sharia because they have the correct understanding of it and know that once it gets 'alternative' status it will attempt to gain 'predominance' through violence or political methods as it has throughout it's history.

How many countries are doing that stuff without the benefit of it being 'legalized' under Sharia?

IOW,,,it sure seems like only those nations under Sharia law do such.~





The truth, of course, is that the law of Islam is interpreted differently by different cultures and nations, sometimes moderately and reasonably, sometimes barbarously, so that head-lopping Saudi Arabia is not to be compared with secular Turkey. The world is full of Muslims who are no more likely to attend a hand chopping than readers of this column are.



~You are right since Turkey is not Sharia compliant as Saudi Arabia is and not all Islamic nations are Sharia compliant.Which,naturally brings the wrath of Sharia compliant Muslims down on them in a jihad of 'religion establishment' to be ran by a Caliph isn't it?One man.As long as he doesn't 'shirk' his Muslim duties and remains SHARIA compliant.

http://frontpagemag.com/2010/08/27/sharia-for-dummies/

1- Jihad, defined as “to war against non-Muslims to establish the religion,” is the duty of every Muslim and Muslim head of state (Caliph). Muslim Caliphs who refuse jihad are in violation of Sharia and unfit to rule.

2- A Caliph can hold office through seizure of power meaning through force.

3- A Caliph is exempt from being charged with serious crimes such as murder, adultery, robbery, theft, drinking and in some cases of rape.

4- A percentage of Zakat (charity money) must go towards jihad.

5- It is obligatory to obey the commands of the Caliph, even if he is unjust.

6- A caliph must be a Muslim, a non-slave and a male.

7- The Muslim public must remove the Caliph if he rejects Islam.

8- A Muslim who leaves Islam must be killed immediately.

9- A Muslim will be forgiven for murder of: 1) an apostate 2) an adulterer 3) a highway robber. Vigilante street justice and honor killing is acceptable.

10- A Muslim will not get the death penalty if he kills a non-Muslim, but will get it for killing a Muslim.

11- Sharia never abolished slavery, sexual slavery and highly regulates it. A master will not be punished for killing his slave.

12- Sharia dictates death by stoning, beheading, amputation of limbs, flogging even for crimes of sin such as adultery.



Now,,can you guess what kind of great honor an 'incumbent Minister of State' whose national religion is Islam wants to bestow on our POTUS?



http://www.nation.com.pk/pakistan-news-newspaper-daily-english-online/Islamabad/02-Sep-2010/Minister-wants-Obama-to-become-AmeerulMomineen -

Minister wants Obama to become Ameer-ul-Momineen

Published: September 02, 2010

ISLAMABAD In a development that could be duly termed as one and only of its kind, an incumbent Government’s Minister has urged US President Barrack Obama to offer Eid prayers at Ground Zero Mosque and become Ameer-ul-Momineen of Muslim Ummah.

Minister of State for Industries and former member Pakistan Ideological Council Ayatullah Durrani called TheNation on Wednesday to register his demand made to President Obama.

The coming Eid would expectedly be observed on 9/11, this a golden opportunity for President Obama to offer Eid prayers at Ground Zero and become Amir-ul-Momineen or Caliph of Muslims. In this way, all the problems of Muslim World would be solved,he thought.

Durrani argued that Muslim World was in dire need of a Caliph and the distinguished slot of Caliphate would earn President Obama the exemplary titles of what he termed, Mullah Barrack Hussain Obama” or Allama Obama. The time is approaching fast. Barrack Hussain Obama must act now. This is a golden opportunity, Muslims badly need it,he added, saying that the elevation of President Obama to Muslim’s Caliphate would be the key to success.

It's essentially empty and amazingly the link he provides labeled 'politics' gives this page:

Oh,,and didn't they let the Taliban in Swat Valley have their way?

Yep.

-

Feb 17, 2009

PESHAWAR, Pakistan, Feb. 16 -- The Pakistani government, desperate to restore peace to a Taliban-infested valley once known as the "Switzerland of Pakistan," agreed Monday to enforce strict Islamic law in the surrounding district near the Afghan border, conceding to a long-standing demand by local Islamist leaders who in turn pledged to ask the fighters to lay down their arms.



In announcing the agreement, Pakistani officials asserted that the adoption of sharia law would bring swift and fair justice to the Swat Valley, where people have long complained of legal corruption and delays. They said the new system would have "nothing in common" with the draconian rule of the Taliban militia that ran Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001, during which thieves' hands were amputated and adulterers were stoned to death.

And this:

-

A man accused of burglary is shot in the head by masked men, who finish him off with additional shots while others in the street stand by. Suspected drug traders are flogged as they cower in the dust. Women are hidden beneath black burkas and banned from markets and public places. Those girls' schools that have not already been firebombed are closed down, and all girls over 13 denied any further education. A Taleban state, with all its fanaticism and blinkered Islamist zealotry, is coming into being no more than 100 miles from the ministries, courts and embassies of Pakistan's capital.



The surrender last month of the Swat Valley, a fertile region in northern Pakistan, to Taleban fighters after a bloody two-year battle, marks a dangerous turning point in Islamabad's increasingly desperate struggle against extremism and terrorism. A new haven for Islamist fighters, bent on the overthrow of the secular state and the killing of Westerners in neighbouring Afghanistan, has been created beyond the control of Pakistan's humiliated armed forces. The Taleban have lost no time in consolidating their rule. The first seven judges have been appointed to enforce the monopoly of Sharia. The remaining police units are confined to their bombed-out barracks, troops accused of breaking the ceasefire are shot, entertainment is banned and the indoctrination of eight-year-old boys to glorify suicide bombings is sanctioned in madrassas run by Jaish-e-Mohammed, a militant group outlawed in 2001 but still operating with impunity.

The folks who troll through the Quran looking for barbarities, the better to demonize the Muslim religion, might first want to study their own Bible, which also contains some gruesome punishments, including stonings.



~Perhaps YOU ought to study it a bit more since Yeshua did away with all that ancient religious based blood shed when He said,"It is finished." from up on that Roman cross.Once He delivered that message He did away with any need for organized religion,and the elite that run them,of any sort since he sits on His and Our Fathers right hand as The Prince of Peace,,not war,,acting as our High Priest and Head Counselor enabling us to each individually BOLDLY approach the throne.Besides that,,name one major Christian sect whose members do any of that crud NOW.That sure would be quite a bit more difficult than me presenting a plethora of examples of Sharia compliant Muslims commiting such acts as stonings,amputations,mutilations,beheadings,suicide murders,rocket attacks and bombings against folks who do not submit to Islam in the name of Allah and his prophet nowdays,wouldn't it?.~



For today's Christians, this doesn't mean that dentists and optometrists are involved in removing a tooth for a tooth and an eye for an eye to enforce our moral law.



~Of course not since most Christians know that Christs actions did away with such vengeful behaviour and they do not live in nations where Sharia makes such things possible and that vengence belongs to God not man.~





The danger of drawing wrong conclusions from literal readings should serve as a caution about Sharia law, too.



~That statement makes sense when referring to 'religious' stuff in NON Sharia compliant nations but NOT to 'law' stuff since literal interpretaion is a pillar of our justice system.

Yet,,when 'religion',as in Sharia,becomes state/federal/official law or shown a preference over existing laws,,can literal readings be safely ignored?



Are our laws related to Christianity in the same way Sharia is related to Islam?No. (Reg Henry even uses Sharia,Islam and Muslim interchangably yet would in no way refer to Law,Roman Universalism and Christian is such a manner.)

Why not?For one,,our government/laws are not as tied to a Christian perspective (hence secular) as Islamic governments and laws are because we are constitutionally bound to being secular.Ergo,unless we wind up with a POTUS who is also a religious official of some sort or another and/or our gov,officially or constructively,acts in compliance with a religions laws in direct violation of our constitution our laws can NOT be Sharia compliant.Besides,,as you well know,,according to many our laws have no basis in Judeo-Christian theology and we are allready one of the biggest Islamic nations in the world according to our POTUS.So,,if showing favoritism to christianity is unconstitutional why is showing favoritism to mohammedism not unconstitutional?~



It is true that, in some Western countries, Sharia law has run into problems in adjusting to the overall community, notably in France and Britain.



~From what I have learned it is more like Sharia has run into problems getting those communities to adjust to Sharia's religious laws attacking and eliminating the concept of one law for all in the nations it insinuates itself into.~



But even in Western countries, no one is suggesting that swords should be sharpened for use after the cricket match or bike race ends on the village green.



~Well no,,they aren't suggesting that since the 'terror' of Islamic violence is not bred by sword play now,they use bombs and jetliners these days.

BTW,FYI,,,Sharia Law is in Britain even tho a few years ago folks claimed it wouldn't happen:



http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1578020/Bishop-Impossible-to-have-sharia-law-in-UK.html

Dr Rowan Williams has been widely criticised after he said that it "seems inevitable" that elements of the Muslim law, such as divorce proceedings, would be incorporated into British legislation.



The Archbishop's controversial stance has received widespread criticism from Christian and secular groups, the head of the equality watchdog, several high-profile Muslims and MPs from all parties.



Downing Street moved quickly to distance itself from the Archbishop's remarks, insisting that British law would and should remain based on British values.



A spokesman for Mr Brown said: "Our general position is that sharia law cannot be used as a justification for committing breaches of English law, nor should the principles of sharia law be included in a civil court for resolving contractual disputes.



+We don't have affiliations when it comes to the question of the law. And when it comes to equality under the law, we have to be rigorous in terms of making sure people do not find themselves excluded from it because of cultural or faith reasons."

Formalising sharia law "would be wrong democratically and philosophically but it would be catastrophic in terms of social cohesion", he warned.



Andy Burnham, the Culture Secretary, agreed that Dr Williams was "wrong" to advocate the adoption of elements of sharia law.



"This isn't a path down which we should go. The system, the British legal system, should apply to everybody equally. You cannot run two systems of law along side each other. That in my view would be a recipe for chaos, social chaos," he said on BBC1's Question Time.



"British law has to be based on British values. If people choose to live in this country, they choose to abide by that law and that law alone. It has got to be fundamental and a cornerstone of our country and our democracy that everybody is equal before that one system of British law."

Revealed: UK's first official sharia courts -Times Online

Sep 14, 2008 ... ISLAMIC law has been officially adopted in Britain, with sharia courts given powers to rule ... Revealed: UK's first official sharia courts ...

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/comment/faith/article4749183.ece

ISLAMIC law has been officially adopted in Britain, with sharia courts given powers to rule on Muslim civil cases.



The government has quietly sanctioned the powers for sharia judges to rule on cases ranging from divorce and financial disputes to those involving domestic violence.



Rulings issued by a network of five sharia courts are enforceable with the full power of the judicial system, through the county courts or High Court.



Previously, the rulings of sharia courts in Britain could not be enforced, and depended on voluntary compliance among Muslims.



It has now emerged that sharia courts with these powers have been set up in London, Birmingham, Bradford and Manchester with the network’s headquarters in Nuneaton, Warwickshire. Two more courts are being planned for Glasgow and Edinburgh.



Sheikh Faiz-ul-Aqtab Siddiqi, whose Muslim Arbitration Tribunal runs the courts, said he had taken advantage of a clause in the Arbitration Act 1996.



Under the act, the sharia courts are classified as arbitration tribunals. The rulings of arbitration tribunals are binding in law, provided that both parties in the dispute agree to give it the power to rule on their case.



Siddiqi said: “We realised that under the Arbitration Act we can make rulings which can be enforced by county and high courts. The act allows disputes to be resolved using alternatives like tribunals. This method is called alternative dispute resolution, which for Muslims is what the sharia courts are.”



The disclosure that Muslim courts have legal powers in Britain comes seven months after Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, was pilloried for suggesting that the establishment of sharia in the future “seems unavoidable” in Britain.

~And france is letting it creep in through it's taxation system and attacking freedom of speech like it is here in AMERICA.~:

http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2008/06/04/brigitte-bardot-convicted/

France continued its march toward sharia law by convicting Brigitte Bardot for the fifth time. Her crime? Sharing her opinion on the Muslim slaughter of animals – interpreted in French as ‘inciting racial hatred.’ (Watch video of a muslim eid slaughter to see what Bardot was talking about)



al-Reuters does its best to display Bardot in disparaging light while completely avoiding the topics of free speech, sharia law, muslim immigration problems, and animal rights.





~,,so I don't think you using those countries as examples is helping your case.~



You can rest easy. Sharia law is not coming to the United States, except as a private guide to faithful Muslims. How could it? According to the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, 78.4 percent of adults in this country are Christian. The figure for Muslims is 0.6 percent. If the Muslims miraculously overcome that numerical disadvantage, we should all rethink our position on Allah.



~Speak for yourself on that re-thinking of Allah since higher procreation rates is the easiest way to swell the ranks of any demographic.And baby making ain't no supernatural,spiritual thing,now is it?

-

The 2001 Census identified 8.6 million people in Great Britain who said they had no religion. Christianity is the main religion, with 41 million people. Muslims were the largest non-Christian religious group – 1.6 million – and their profile shows a young, tightly clustered, but often disadvantaged, community.

http://www.statistics.gov.uk/focuson/religion/

-

http://www.statistics.gov.uk/cci/nugget.asp?id=961

In 2001, households headed by a Muslim were largest, with an average size of 3.8 people, followed by households headed by Sikhs (3.6 people) and Hindus (3.2 people). A third of Muslim households (34 per cent) contained more than five people, as did 28 per cent of Sikh and 19 per cent of Hindu households.



Jewish, Christian and Buddhist households were smaller – each with an average size of 2.3 people. These groups have an older age structure than the other religious groups, and contain a higher proportion of one-person households. Over 30 per cent of these households contained only one person, compared with between 13 and 15 per cent of Sikh, Hindu or Muslim households.



+Households headed by a Muslim are more likely than other households to contain children. Around two thirds (63 per cent) contained at least one dependent child in 2001, compared with around a quarter of Jewish (25 per cent) and Christian (27 per cent) households.



Muslim households also contained the highest number of children. A quarter (25 per cent) of Muslim households contained three or more dependent children, compared with 14 per cent of Sikh, 7 per cent of Hindu, and 5 per cent of Christian households.



The differences in the presence of children reflect partly the younger age structure of the Muslim population, and the intentions of Pakistani and Bangladeshi women. The average intended number of children among Pakistani and Bangladeshi women was 3.4 and 3.6 respectively, compared with 2.4 among Indian women and 2.1 among White women.



~



It is amazing how people can believe that this is "a Christian country" on one hand and think Sharia law has a chance of being imposed on the other.



~Who said it's a Christian country?The last I heard was BO calling it one of the largest Islamic nations on Earth,,,:

,,,,so I think the chances of Sharia Law being in America is well inside the realm of possibility. As one can easily learn from todays news and even a public schools curiculuum,,nations can have laws 'imposed' on them by agencies within and be 'defeated' by agencies outside of them regardless of the 'will' of it's citizens.

~



(In what sense this is a Christian country is arguable, but it seems to me with that all the hate flying about, it's a bit like the rancher who is all hat and no cattle, except that here it's usually all Christian and no Christian charity.)



~No Christian Charity?

You yourself remarked on the disparate numbers twixt Christians and Muslims.

If Christians were NOT charitable,peaceful and following the laws of our Nation and instead acted like Sharia adherents do,,and still acted in accordance to the laws Christ made no longer needed,,exactly how long do you think those numbers would drop to something so close to zero that no one would say how far above zero it is for fear of 'Christians' dishing out exactly what todays psychotic Muslim fanatics dish out so often.~



As usual, people are worrying about the wrong things. We have our Christian ayatollahs, too, and some of them do want to have civil law reflect Biblical law in most of its particulars (stock up on your stones now).



~Are any of them in the White House or Senate or Congress?Is one of them a High Commander of our Military forces?

If not,,then their importance dwindles in relation to the people who stood against a private First Amendment following American citizen burning a Koran to protest murder in the name of religion and have not opposed the building of what is easily seen as a provocation by adherents of the same religion as those who murdered a few thousand folks no more than two blocks away.~





For hair-raising reading on this subject, I suggest doing an Internet search on "Christian Reconstructionism" or the theological term "theonomy." I did and found a guy defending the execution of children for the crime of being incorrigible. Lord, help us.

~That's what ya do on the internet dude,,give up the links,,if you're being honest that is.Now,,do you actually think that one example of a lone man's deviant behaviour counter balances such a widespread systems antiquated attitudes and violence prone behaviour?~





Will our Christian law advocates succeed in imposing their harsh statutes on the rest of us? Very unlikely, but at least they start in a place where Christianity is firmly rooted. If there were a Ladbrokes of ridiculous notions, the odds on the bet would be 100-to-1 against it happening. For Sharia law, 10,000-to-1, because that shark is a mile off the beach and then some.



~Like that's the only shark in the sea??

Only one?A mile away?

How quick can a shark swim one mile?

And because you know there is one shark one mile away,,there is absolutely no other sharks nearby that you do not perceive?

Are they all tagged with gps?



sheesh,,,what a maroon.



Your comparison of Sharia Law or the danger from Sharia adherent,or other terrorists to a lone shark cruising the sea is so lame it would be laughable if not for subject matter involved.



Sharks do not think.

Sharks do not vote.

Sharks do not use explosives.

Sharks do not become 'suicide attackers'.

Sharks do not murder for religious-political reasons.



Do you really get paid to write this stuff?



Your arguments are easily seen as not being based on plain logic and factual reality but instead exposes a slanted world view that is either purposely constructed to simply cast denigration and ridicule on the majority of the American public who percieve a threat that you wish to come to fruition or you simply are so blinded by a political party pup mentality that your ability to perceive reality has been 'dhimmed'.



To close,,,have ya seen the 'global warming warning' commercial where it uses a train bearing down on a little girl to represent global warming consequences coming from a distance (in time) that will affect the next (or future) generations safety and well being?

Well,,visualize this,the train is the religious-political system that propels murderous minded Muslims into commiting heinous acts that could charitably be said had resulted from over zealous religious fervor.
(Or you could compare it to a hungry shark coming from a mile away.)



How about we ALL help derail that train before it gets here so future peace loving,tolerant,charitable,AMERICAN citzens can live without bowing to a Muslim counterpart of King George & The Pope?
(Or maybe,,like the lifeguards did,,,at least warn folks about a shark ONLY a mile away.)

Please.

Do it for the children,Reg!

They is our future.
