This Editorial begins on page A 1 with the headline, that I wrote. This paper does not have a copy of the book nor have I read the book. We are simply presenting information from the Liberal Media (including blogs) on what was was being said at "zero hour" just prior to the book's release to the public. I thought it would be of interest to our readers to see what panic looks like as we move closer to possibly the most important "midterm" election in a long time.
How will the Democrats spin this book? How will Republicans use the information and the facts that are presented to further their cause in November? It should be quite interesting! W.C. (by the way, The Battle of Waterloo was fought on Sunday 18 June 1815 near Waterloo in present-day Belgium, then part of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands. An Imperial French army under the command of Emperor Napoleon was defeated by combined armies of the Seventh Coalition, an Anglo-Allied army under the command of the Duke of Wellington combined with a Prussian army under the command of Gebhard von Blücher. It was the culminating battle of the Waterloo Campaign and Napoleon's last). Source Wikapedia.

Toleration & the "melting pot" concept
Our country's early history involved something called the melting pot where people immegrated to America and were transformed from what they were to being an "American" , and this was good! We were known as a tolerant people and we were also known as a christian nation. You can visit just about any of our early public buildings such as the Supreme Court and you will see more evidenceof christianity than any other faith, certainely more so than the Islamic faith. This evidence is made up of the sayings and quotations that the founders chose to put on the plaques and walls of the structures.
We are lectured constantly by Muslims on our lack of tolorance when they have absolutely none themselves. Should tolerance be a two way street? We are told that we have over 7 million Muslims in our country and they have exercised their freedoms to build thousands of Mosques across the "fruited plains" while Islam permits no such freedoms and rights in the countries they control.
When this is pointed out in discussions with American Muslims, we are lectured on our intolerance and told that those facts are not important and should not even be qoiced in a "tolerant" discussion.
Sharia Law is still another matter. We can easily see, if we bother to look, how other countries are being affected as the percentage of Muslims grows larger and larger and things begin to happen, such as threats from outside groups such as in Denmark with the cartoons etc. Where does all of this lead?
