  2. The real question here is how many more Muslims or any other illegal immigrants are robbing our tax dollar with the help of the Obama administration. This isn’t the only case.

  3. All fraud, robbery, assaults and murder of infidels are Halal…. We are accepting people who have a religion telling them to destroy our civilization, and us. Very liberal stupid people allowed them here. At some point we will be fighting them house to house, and street to street. Thank an elected Democrat for it today.. Now there even is one in the White house with his feet on OUR furniture.

  4. What about depor tub these bastards,

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
