Well. Not surprised really. After a very detailed account of the misery in Palestinian refugee camps a student asked Professor Bias why we never hear about such things. My jaw hit the floor as she lived up to my lowest expectations. -The jews control the media and give big donations to congress.-
Of course she didn't say jews she said Israel.
Israel can't give money to congress nor does a foreign state control our media so I'll assume she was being consistent with her ideological brethren and meant jews.

DC sniper- muslim
Richard Reid (shoe bomber)- muslim
Hesham Mohamed Hadayet (LAX shooter)- muslim
Chechnyans holding hostages in Moscow- muslims
Philippines/ Denmark/ Bali bombers- muslims

Islam can be a religion of peace but it has within it a permutation that's as malignant as any ideology we've seen.

"Just passed the TV, and they’re looking for a fellow named John Mohammed. And I wonder again what I would feel like were I one of those live-and-let-live Muslims who don’t want to tamp their faith down the kaffir’s throat with a rifle butt. A devout Christian would wince to learn that the authorities wanted to talk to Bob Jesus about some random slayings for the glory of God: talk about “Not in My Name.” Or His."

A problem for any religion- how do you shut the crazy ones up? Catholicism is having a less deadly but similar problem. Pedophilia? Maybe. Gay priests? No.
