Treating Terrorists Differently based on Religion, Race....?

We have just had two terrorist attacks in the United States - actually three.

One was the Boston bombing and the other was the poison Ricin letters sent to President Obama and Senator Wicker of Mississippi.

Yet Peter King and his group in the GOP want to profile all Muslims to see if there are other people plotting attacks. But is he for profiling all Mississippi white guys and fringe groups? No....

The third recent terrorist was Adam Lanza, who took an assault weapon to kill 26 - many more than who died at Boston that terrible day. Is Peter King profiling all assault weapons owners and young white guys?

No...So you see we still have Congress representatives willing to discriminate against an entire group based on one common trait (religion and color) - Muslims - but not conduct the same audit of white terrorists in the USA, which we have had in the past, have now, and will have in the future.

A terrorist is a person with a STATE OF MIND - to kill innocent people. That applies to the Tim McVeighs blowing up kids in a day care at a federal building in Oklahoma as the Boston bombers and the Ricin attackers.

In America, justice and equality go hand in hand. Treating an entire class of people as criminals shows the vast ignorance of cultures by our elected representatives. They should be replaced because they lack true AMERICAN values.

We judge people by their wrongs, not their sex, race or culture. White killers are no better than black killers or Islamic ones. Having been in nearly 50 countries, I know that is what makes America the best nation in the world. Our legal system judges on Facts, not witch hunts in a minority.

I have met Muslims in the Middle East and the USA, even during a Congress campaign with Tom DeLay. I have met people from over 80 countries. Until Americans do the same, fear will dominate over facts about what they --and Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, etc. -- are really like.  In that same Congress campaign series I went to Mosques, Synagogues, many variations of Christian churches, etc. It's described in the Chapter entitled "Predicting 9/11 and Running Against the Hammer" in my book.

My trip to MuslimSyria on a child kidnapping negotiation revealed ancient Christian churches in the hills I visited outside Damascus. I was in Egypt when the first Israeli Arab peace treaty was negotiated (donated my room to a President's mission for that).

If you want to see what these people are like through my eyes, time trip around the world and see for yourself what's happening worldwide that impacts our future then check out "Better Times Ahead April Fool" my new ebook - a wild ride from farm to world negotiator and bust - and re-invention,

Documents with author photos of global change the past 30 years from China to India, South Africa, South America, etc --and most importantly, how to win our future...That's in the final chapter "Agenda for American Greatness."
