    Their book requires purification of the individual through martyrdom and purification of the world through jihad. It further orders them to infiltrate the enemy and wait until the order for jihad is given.Many Muslims have not read their entire book and this might account for the numbers of moderates. Many more,especially outside of the mideast,do not speak or read Arabic and can not tell you what is in the book.There are secret chapters which they are all ordered NOT to read. And plenty of vivid description of never ending pedophilia promised awaiting in heaven to follower who follow commands. If they knew what was in their book,they would leave the faith.

      Most "religious" people haven't read their holy books; the 'faithful' rely on pastors, imams, etc to preach to them the meaning of their religion. Whatever your religion is, the indoctrinated will be taught violence and hate at every opportunity by their leaders. Muslim fundamentalists preach violence. Christian fundamentalists preach hate and oppression of the poor.

      Ultimately, only education can free people the people in the world. Abolish religion, teach reality.

    I'd like in-depth reporting on employment services within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS; Mormon).
    The church has employment assistance for its members who are employers and employees. Members are strongly
    encouraged to trade within the church, hire within the church, and get "assistance" from the church.

    On the flip side, if a member is ex-communicated, fired, or shunned, that member's livelihood is on the line.

    How much do they really understand about hiring and creating jobs in the "real" world?

    On the subject of Muslims and the FBI. Just what we need 10 more years of fear mongering and causing more bigotry and missinformation against our own ciitzens. When will we ever learn to get past this? We cannot be doing this to our fellow Americans. It is immoral and counterproductive. Our fight is not with Islam its with ignorance and stupidity beholden to a few people that have a taste for blood. These few people don't represent the whole. We should not engage in fear tactics because that is how the Alceada get recruites. Is the FBI signing on to help them with that task?

    People need to get real. The Bush administration did a good job of casting a glaring light on our own citizens that practice the Islamic faith causing distrust and animosity, fear. We don't need anymore of that. Stop labeling elements of our own citizenry as terrorist, lazy, entiltists. The media does a great injustice by doing this.

    I am curious since GOP debates have been going on for some time now why the GOP in the house now haven't said a word about jobs in the last 2 years? What makes it important to them now following Obamas job plan. Nothing is said exactly how they intend to create jobs persay. I see alot of money potentially going to Corpoations to lower their taxes if they hire but who is going to oversee the hiring? Many do not like to hire unemployed workers. They will hire those that are fresh out of college and high school and claim credits and leave the 14 million that have been out of work for a year or more on the way side and still claim that benifit.
    Plus assurance in the private sector is being given to make more jobs? Lower taxes never was an incentive It's a ploy to boycott hiring till you get what you want nothing more. While Americans pay thru the nose in taxes as they are Corporations are making huge profits over seas with their cheap labor. Obama basically has been played by the GOP to continue business as usual against our better interests. And Wallstreet is still up to its games.
    Bad thing is none of the candidates are up to the task of addressing fruad by banks, corporations or Government money links with the Senate. How can you say your going to change the outlook if you don't even address the reason the problem even exists. 0 confidence in any of these candidates to do what needs to be done.

    An Imam from Palestine told me the Muslims shouting how peaceful Islam is, will be the first to pick up arms against the non believers should a war ever start here in the west. They are to cowardly to stand up to the extremists so they cave in and do as they are told. That's what happened in Iran, Lybia and is spreading through Pakistan and other countries. Freedom has one cost people and that's blood.
