Bob Beckel: No More Visa's For Moslem Students

A pretty hard left guy at times who, finally, sees the light. It is our country, isn't it? Beckel ran Walter Mondale's 1984 presidential campaign.

Bob Beckel: We Should Stop Giving Student Visas to Muslims - Katie Pavlich

That brush is a bit too wide. But I do believe that it is not racial profiling, or alternatively that racial profiling is not an evil if we give Muslim students a bit more scrutiny than say a non-Muslim from the UK.

That would be like saying Irish should have been kept out, because some had ties to the IRA, or Italians, because some had ties to the Mafia, or Hispanics, because some might have ties to drug cartels...

Yes, but most Hispanics, Italians, and Irish are Christians.

How many IRA terror bombings, plane crashes were done in America?

Problem here is the ease with which many Moslems fall into terrorism or defending it as well as aiding it through money.

There's no comp here.

So what? Are you any less killed or maimed, if you're killed or maimed by a Mexican drug cartel enforcer who just happens to also attend Mass on Sundays?

This whole proposal is stupid. There are millions of Muslim-Americans who have more than proven their good citizenship.

Oh, horse hockey. There are dangerous people in every group. The fact of the matter is, if you're going to be murdered in this country, it's far more likely to either be by a street thug, a relative, or a jealous spouse (if one happens to be into the whole infidelity thing) -- than by a terrorist of any stripe.

This is stupid. Of course, what happened in Boston is horrific. But let's keep some perspective on this people. That same day, far more Americans were murdered or maimed for completely non-terrorist reasons -- while millions of Muslim Americans went peacefully about their business.

"n this country, it's far more likely to either be by a street thug, a relative, or a jealous spouse"

Yeah...but at least you know what for!

Seriously...why not similar background checks as for gun control on these students? Bear in mind that something like Russia's warning about the Boston bomber would have nixed his visa...

The proposal has zero to do with Moslem citizens. It has to do with student visas. Zero them out, yesterday. Well, too late for that, then now. Stupid GW could have done that, and closed the border with Mexico after 9-11.

From stories it appears that the FBI tried to use the Tsarnaev brothers and they turned on their handlers. It would be interesting to read the specifics of what the Russians asked, only don't hole your breath.
