    I think this is absolutely disgusting and embarrassing.

    http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article15635.htm

    CNN host (Glen Beck) to first-ever Muslim congressman: "Prove to me that you're not working with our enemies."

    "I have been nervous about this interview with you, because what I feel like saying is, 'Sir, prove to me that you are not working with our enemies.' " Beck added: "I'm not accusing you of being an enemy, but that's the way I feel, and I think a lot of Americans will feel that way."

    Racism, Religionism, whatever. I have the same question. Unfortunately the terrorists' strategy is to meld into our society unnoticed. I don't trust any of them, sorry to say.

    I think it's a fair question. Obviously it's not Politically Correct to ask it I guess. Maybe he could have framed it better, but in some ways, maybe the reporter asked it to make it more sensational than it needed to be. not that a reporter would ever want to sensationaize something though right? Anyhow, it is a fair question. Just like some would question a jewish politicians objectivity toward Israeli policy. It's legitimate. It's reality. It's like profiling in a sense. To me, profiling is common sense, though, considered politically incorrect.

    What was the answer?

    Their (Muslims) loyalty always lies first with their religion, and their religion can be very dangerous, of course American Liberals will never acknowledge this, it doesn't fit into their "wannabe lovey dovey world", Liberals mean well but they will never face reality.

    America now has an enemy and this enemy will be America's enemy for many, many years, why do Liberals always take the side of the "Enemy" they do it with the Cops & Crooks also, they are usually on "the crooks side".

    It must be tough to be a liberal when a day like 9/11 comes along.

    Skipping through Harry's quagmire of a post, I was glad to see the Muslim candidate get elected. It says something about what our country. Something that we've been missing for a number of years. People that are paranoid of him representing our government should refrain from bong hits.

    Glen Beck is an IDIOT! I watch the show for comedic value to see how many times he changes a question to someone into a compliment to himself. He is degrading to women and thus degrading to men.

    Hatred.

    LOL, It's a "Quagmire Post" to the goody goody liberal because it's true.

    As I said in my Quagmire post, liberals HATE reality.

    Aren't liberal do-gooders wonderful (they LOVE all the bad people).

    Come tip toe through the tulips with me.

    When is the Abba Dabba Prison Dog Leash anniversary, will their be a moment of silence out in Pelosi Frisco, "oh dear God wasn't it terrible", imagine putting ladies underwear on a murderers head.

    "Mommy. that man has firecrackers hanging off his belly"

    "Don't say anything dear he's a Muslim, we don't want to offend him"

    WHERE HAVE ALL THE FLOWERS GONE

    Negatives cannot be proven. Not only is the question unfair, it is profoundly illogical, violates the spirit of the American judicial system, and reveals an embaressing lack of journalistic competence. I don't care how right wing anyone is, they can even agree with every single one of Beck's opinions - to say that that question was fair, intelligent, or that it proved anything other than Beck's lack of knowledge, is simply an act of futility.

    IMO this is a legitimate question. Islam's tradition with respect to the role of religion in goverment is very different than the Christian tradition here in America.

    Jesus said to 'render unto Ceasar that which is Cesar's, render unto God that which is God's. This shows an implicit difference between the domain of religion and the political world. In Islam this distinction doesn't exist. In the Islamic world there is little to no distinction between Goverment and religion. Goverment in much of the Islamic world is seen as a tool to enforce Sharia Law. This view is being agressivly advanced by the Whabbist from Saudi Arabia. This view is fundamentally different than the traditional American view concerning the srparation of church and State.

    The views of this congressman on the relationship between religion and goveremnt is a very legitimate question, just as it was when Pat Robertson ran for President.

    I wasn't too crazy about the issue of Robertson's religion being used against or for him, though. When I'm king, religion won't be a political issue or any other kind of issue for that matter. You make a valid point in your comparison, though.
