“If They Bring a Knife to the Fight, We Bring a Gun. Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”
Candidate Barack Obama, June 13, 2008, Philadelphia, PA.
A Pew Research survey of American Muslims say 8% say suicide bombings against civilian targets are justified sometimes justified to defend Islam. 9% refused to answer the question, and another 5% said they are “rarely justified.” Only 78% said suicide bombings were “never justified” but that means 13% of American Muslims think suicide bombings are justified at least under some circumstances and 9% refused to answer meaning 22% of American Muslims believe that suicide bombings can be justified.
Pew neglected to ask the percentage who approve of suicide bombings against military targets. 41% of the over 30 crowd think of themselves as Muslim first, 30% as American first.
Interestingly 15% of American Muslims under 30 believe that suicide bombings are often or sometimes justified in the defense of Islam. 5% refused to answer the question. 60% think of themselves as Muslim first, 25% as American first.
24% say that it is unacceptable for a Muslim to marry a non-Muslim. 26% say that Muslims “coming to the U.S. today should mostly try to remain distinct from the larger American society.”

It is not on the nature of good to compromise (with evil).
Charmed, season 4 episode 19
Free people or “free” stuff, that is the choice. Freedom or slavery; because in reality there is no “free stuff” you are just forcing someone to work for you and provide it for you without being paid for the portion of their life that you are taking. The enslavement of one for the benefit of another.
