Scott bars Syrians

Gov. Rick Scott’s misguided and pointless attempts to bar refugees from Syria plays right into ISIS’ hands.

ISIS is trying to set up a doomsday scenario where all Muslims are isolated and feared, thus forcing all Muslims to submit to ISIS. Scott, by giving in to fear of terrorism, validates the actions and propaganda of ISIS and is giving it just what it wants.

Does anyone seriously think that our existence as a nation can be truly endangered by terrorists, no matter how brutal? More Americans are killed by drunk drivers and mishandled firearms every year than have died in every terrorist attack, domestic or foreign, against Americans anywhere in the world. Our way of life is under attack, but if we change who we are in response to that attack, then we lose.
