Letter: Terrorists are winners if we forfeit core values

Terrorists are winners if we forfeit core values

There are two reasons Muslims should be concerned. First, terrorists kill more Muslims than any other group. Second, and of equal concern to Americans, is Republican presidential candidates, governors and members of Congress. These xenophobic, overly nationalistic politicians use ignorance, hate and, most of all, fear to dominate their party.

They appeal to radical Christian fanatics who are dangerous to this country. For a party that likes to call the president names like “Hitler,” it is ironic that Republicans want to register and track Muslims, monitor and close mosques, and even round up and deport Muslims.

What’s next? Only white Christian refugees allowed? Anyone who is different in any way is out! So much for religious freedom and American values. The terrorists win.
