Oh Please . . . Ever Wonder Why Some Are Being Spied On?

"Oh, p u l l e a s e!!!" Take a look at the article. Their letter to the NYC Mayor can also be read from the article itself (you really should take a look at that too and you read this, and the attached link). And here's my comment on the letter: "Oh, cry me a river."

There are good reasons why police departments keep a close eye on people. I know all Muslims are not terrorists. But the fact remains that almost all terrorists are Muslims. The police have no real choice but to use this approach.

As an immigrant from Europe living in Canada now for close to sixty years, I know that if Greeks were the ones who were being caught and found guilty of terrorist acts in Canada or the U.S., I would expect the police to keep a close eye on me. No questions asked.  And I'd continue to keep my nose clean.

Why? Because they care about protecting the community and the country as a whole -- and that my dear Muslim friends, who seem to be complaining so much, includes those of you who are being watched, but are innocent.

So please take a page out of the approach that some Muslims have and start going to events like the mayor's -- and stop whining. Think of what so many other faiths go through around the world in countries run by Islamic groups. Be thankful you're where you are and welcome to America.
