    Re: How many more Muslim terrorists should we let in to the United States?

    Yes to the first question when in the context of what I said which was compared to other concerns. For instance, we had 52,600 deaths from drug overdose in 2016 far outstripping 9/11 and terrorism in general. Suicides are around 44K

    As to mushroom clouds, let me know when immigrants start carrying thermonuclear weapons with them and I'll give that more thought.

    Considering there are about 3 million Muslims in the US, and the number of Islamist terrorist attacks can be counted on my fingers and toes, I think it's safe to say that they are not by and large dangerous simply because of their professed religion. Otherwise, we'd have a much more persistant crisis.

    As to what they really beleive or what Islam really teaches, I'll take the word of the Muslims on what their religion means over yours any day. People act out their beliefs (generally) and mostly what I see are peace loving people who are going about living very normal lives.
    Feed me some debate pellets!
