Why do you say my comments were racist?
The evil ones who attacked the USA were Muslim. They were of Arabic origin. 
Bin laden has been using our technology against us. I considered using ham 
satellites for Y2K if needed so why wouldn't Bin Laden consider using ham 
satellites too. This unknown sat looks like an uncoordinated intruder.

We are looking for Muslims and Arabs. The govt here said this past week 
that as many as 50,000 Arabs are illegally here in the USA now (overstayed 
their visas like the attackers). Not all of them are probably terrorists 
but some most surely are. I didn't say that all Arabs or all Muslims are 
bad. BUT we know that the evil ones are Arabs and Muslims so we need to 
sort the good ones from the bad. We need to do this sorting in a way that 
protects the rights of the legal immigrants and citizens. Illegals should 
have no such protection - they should be deported or imprisoned.
