I am ashamed of my party

As a liberal democrat, I abhor intolerance. So when our party's leaders support individuals and groups that are intolerant, I can't understand it. On Feb. 2, Howard Dean stood next to Imam Husham Al-Husany as the Imam feigned a desire for peace and love and called Americans oppressors. Is Howard so shallow that he does not understand that this Imam is only interested in everyone living under shari'a law? His associations with CAIR and his support of terrorist organizations around the world are ample evidence that he is another Islamic leader who thinks that peace, love and unity can only come if we all follow Muhammed.

Although I don't really care for Sean Hannity's tactics, Imam Al-Husany's rants during his interview with Sean demonstrate how out of touch he really is. It's clear that if anyone criticizes Islamic domination, then they encourage the wrath of Muhammed and Jesus. Incredible! Peace and Love and Understanding . . I don't believe that is what the Imam really wants. He wants the whole world to be like him. And Howard embraces characters like this? Take a listen for yourself:

Oh, and after the DNC address, equally ignorant young democrats blindly supported Howard's choice.

One more reason that RELIGION and GOVERNMENT should forever be separated. This Imam is as nuts as the christians Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, and Fred Phelps!

My party should be better than this.

I don't like government mixing with religion either, but it is not quite as simple as that. They have a right to fight occupation. Religion is used by the occupation fighters, but it certainly isn't the main reason they are fighting.

Hezabollah was created by the Israeli occupation of Lebanon; they are no more terrorists than the IDF. the number one reason for actions like suicide bombing is occupation. All occupations deserve a resistance.

For the record (this should go without saying, but I keep having to say it) I am 110% against Islamic fundamentalism. There is a
third camp
in the middle east and they need support.

Gald to see you caught this, Greg. It is a profound mistake for the Democratic leadership to be affiliating itself with Islam's anti-U.S. agenda.

I am not going to even dignify loopy ideas about Islam, its denigration of humane values, its murderous imperialistic history and its propensity toward violence. You would be better off taking Nazis as friends. Islam is a vile ideology and its vileness has nothing to do with the Jews, but the core teachings of Mohammed.
