Why should we give any space to those who want to kill our Jewish citizens? Muslims hate Jews and think it is ok to kill them. They think it is ok to kill non muslims in general. So what are they doing in the country? Who needs these kinds of murderous ideas?

You try researching Muslim.
If you Muslims stopped attacking Israel the problems would go away.

So, really, it is all about your burning anti-Semitism. America is at war. Muslim are the enemy. They should be rounded up and put into detention camps and their filthy mosque should be razed.

Your whole post is full of crap.

QUESTION #1: "WHY DO YOU BLASPHEME BY CALLING JESUS ‘GOD’? HOW CAN JESUS BE GOD? "

WHY DO MUSLIMS OBJECT TO THIS? See The Qur’an’s Teaching:

(Sura 5:72,73)“They do blaspheme who say:‘God is Christ the son of Mary.’ But said Christ,‘O children of Israel, Worship God, my Lord and your Lord.’ Whoever joins other gods with God, God will forbid him the garden, and the fire will be his abode… for there is no god except One God.”

(Sura 3:79)“It is not (possible) that a man, to whom is given the Book and wisdom and the prophetic office, should say to people,‘Be ye my worshippers rather than God’s.’”

(Sura 4:171)“Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) an apostle of God, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from Him.”

ANSWER #1: Explanation From John 1:1-3,14:

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made… And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the father, full of grace and truth.”

This part of the Holy Injil (New Testament) tells us the eternal Word of God, which in the beginning of creation was “with God,” also “was God.” Everything God created, He created by saying,“Be!” which means He created everything by Himself, by His own Word. God's Word is not another God; God's Word is God's communication of Himself. Can God exist without His Word? Obviously not. Was there ever a time when God's Word did not exist? Of course not. This is like my speech or communication, which is a distinct entity of my being, but certainly is not a second being separate from me. So God is One, and part of that oneness is His Word, which comes out from Him and communicates Himself to us. In Arabic Jesus is called,“Kalamat Ullah,” the Word of God. He came out from God and came into the world as a human being. God in His sovereignty chose to reveal Himself to us through His Word – His Word, who became one of us and lived among us. In comparing Jesus Christ with the prophet Adam, the Bible tells us,“The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven.”(1 Corinthians 15:47) After 33 years on this earth, when the Lord Jesus the Messiah was about to return back to heaven, he himself indicated he had existed in Almighty God from before creation:“I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do, and now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.”(John 17:4,5)

Hmmm. What religious affiliation did the 9/11 highjackers align themselves with? I can see why people would have a problem with giving the same exact people a place to worship, and plot the next attack. Our nation doesn't need anymore terrorists.

The tens of thousands of Muslims who commit terrorism, violence and political upheaval give everyone with a modicum of reason to point the finger at Islam as the cause.

It is a fact that not all Muslims are violent, but there is no doubt that Islam is the source of Islamic Terrorism.

If there are some of you who do not choose this path, that does NOT relive Islam of it's culpability.

Ok well I don't see you judging all the people who claim to be christians and strong belivers of Jesus that are killing their kids and family so before you judge others you should do a reality check all this is; is pure jealousy and childish the topic is about a mosque so people who belive in the musilm religon and just because some one is musilm does not mean they are not American it just that they study a different religion !!! And as far as I can recall Christian are not supposed to judge NO ONE!!!! I don't see any one making a big deal about Church of Christ, baptist , Catholic ,Pentecostal, ext.... Muslim has just as much rights in the USA as the rest of religons so with that being said I think that you so called Christians need to step back and actually read what the BIBLE says before you judge anyone by religion race or sex.... No one is purfect no matter what religon we may practice... Nothing will never be good enough for no one so before you judge one religion you need to look at the rest of the ecause no one is purfect!!!!!!
