You may not know it but Phoenix has the second largest population of Muslims in the US second to Deerborn, Michigan.
You also may not be aware that Tucson was the location of Osama Bin Laden's first charity organization back when he was fighting Russians and not us.
Did you know that the Muslim Imams who got kicked off the US Airways flight from Minniapolis where headed to Phoenix where they live.
This is not a call to arms against Muslims in Phoenix, it is just an FYI because as much as I pay attention to the news and to history, this slipped by me. I do not see many recognizable Muslims around. I knew we had a large population of Sihk Indians, because I have a close friend who is one, and you can recognize them because they are the ones wearing the Turbins on their heads.
What worries me about these Muslims in Phoenix is that a lot of them are refugees from war torn countries. These people are experiencing, for their first time, democracy and freedom. They are alone and only have their own people to turn too, because in most cases they probably know little english. So these people are easy pray for fundimentalists who can convert them into suicide bombers and mass murders.
It is believed that Phoenix is safe, because the leaders do not want to draw attention to their perfect recruiting grounds. But remember, some of the 9/11 terrorists had connections to Phx. Remember the flight training? "Just teach me to go up, no need to come down"
