Let's see. So far we have the conservative OP trying to smear all of a religion with the actions of two people...

Not just two. Hundreds. Maybe thousands. Still...

And anyone wonders why conservatives have such a hard time attracting minority votes? Ah, right, it must just be the free stuff. It has nothing to do with not feeling welcome.

In 2000, 70% of American Muslims voted for Bush. In 2012, 7% voted for Romney. Like Hispanics, they more socially conservative than voters in general and would be a natural GOP constituency if they weren't so turned off by Republican bigotry.

There is a lesson to be learned here. I have a feeling that not too many are going to get it though because after all according to them, I have nothing to contribute to the board.

Nothing besides facts, common sense and sanity.
