Belief, yes...but purposefully executed terrorist attack on the country of
the United States, disallows any and all rights a group or country that
harbors them has, as far as I'm concerned.

We're not talking about "their viewpoints conflict with ours" liberal mamby
pamby load of crap, we're talking about intentional murdering of thousands
of American citizens on the soil of the United States.

You must be kidding, right?  You really expect that anyone from the US is
REALLY and realistically going to spend any time "learning about these
people etc. etc." for the purpose of "allowing these people to have
something to live for"?  I am stunned by these comments, absolutely stunned.
