Are these indications of real concerns or isolated problems that won't grow worse? Is Mark an alarmist or realist?

Mark is an anti-islamic. I still have the Time mag from 1992 titled "Islam: should we be afraid?"

might as well replace jew with muslim today, because islamophobia is the new anti-semitism.
I disagree,Islamic culture clearly is fascist oriented and as such we Americans need to be on guard against it. Of course Mark is anti Islamic,he is anti Nazi and anti Communist as well as I am. Each are intolerant and coercive .

Not for me.

There is no basis in academic circles to support your claim of islam being "fascist" Fascism died with Mussolini and Hitler. If anything, USA is behaving in Fascist pattern, with Dubya extending his power to do basically anything he wants, including torture, murder, wire tapping, creating endless war with "pre-emptive doctrine", whipping up purely emotional nationalist (jingoist) frenzy among unreflecting, unintelligent public. The parallels of Nazi Germany with USA is overwhelming.

... and also quite weak, bordering on irrelevance ....

Unless you are posting from a Gestapo jail you should realize the deficiency of your parallels, because this is where you would be if Bush were what you say he is. And you probably would not be allowed much online posting either.... Think this through, please. Wink1

I am not arguing that USA is a fascist state, what I am saying that it is approaching it. I don't think the american people will allow USA to become fascist, but the issue is if and when the bush and he neocon handlers try to perform another 9/11-type staged attack, to scare americans once again and create a full blown police state.

Approaching is fine.

When I walk left from my house (on the East Coast) I approach California. Hell, I even approach China.

When I walk right, I approach France. And, even worse, Iraq.

And I try not to dig too much in the basement...not to approach the kangaroos, those thing really kick.....
