Given that it may be unfair to some innocent bystanders, the threat by Muslim extremists to destroy us means we cannot afford not to seek out potential terrorists where they may be lurking, even if means concentrating attention on Mosques (“Kelly talks policy and politics,” June 7).
It is truly an affront to be spied upon and be suspected of some unknown offense, or potential one, if you are an innocent respectable totally dedicated American citizen! “Why? Why? Why me? I’ve done nothing!”
Unfortunately, certain members of the Muslim religion, based on their religious faith, have declared war on Americans. Numerous attempts, both aborted and performed, have been planned by Muslims to kill innocent Americans, many of them right here in our own land. Where should the security authorities look for potential terrorists who have threatened us? Among Eskimos?
If an actual or potential perpetrator hides among his innocent peers, as we know they are wont to do, how can we fault our government protectors for seeking them out? Just as Willy Sutton said when asked why he robs banks, “That’s where the money is.” So is it not sensible to seek potential Muslim enemies where Muslims gather, even if it is in a house of worship?
As my late mom said, “Better safe than sorry!” (Especially given the availability today of weapons of mass destruction.)
