RE: Would it concern you if your neighbor is a Muslim?
I would probably have the fact that they're muslim in the back of my head too, but I do that for pretty much any religion. I would never consider moving away on account of my neighbors' religion. There are a lot of muslims, and relatively few are terrorists. As long as they're not really fundamentalist or pushing it on you it's no big deal.

A man should not believe in an ism, he should believe in himself. -Ferris Bueller

RE: Would it concern you if your neighbor is a Muslim?
Not long after our first son was born, the three of us dropped in on a Ramadan party, complete with a belly dancer brought in from Detroit. From what I could gather, Muslim parties are "Everybody welcome, come as you are" affairs. I was complimented several times on my son, the food was incredible, the belly dancer was... And a good time was had by all. Those folks know how to party!

It's stuff like this that makes me seriously wonder if we wouldn't be more effective air-dropping in porn rather than dropping bombs.

Didn't know a "Ramadan party" was a thing.

Leaflets are usually distributed by small air-burst detonations. So, PORN BOMBS.

ProTip: Don't Google image search 'porn bombs' with safe search off. FML... Shocking

In reality, assuming we hadn't met and had the chance to get to know each other, I'd probably make them more nervous than the other way around. Hell I'd even be okay if they were actual terrorists. It would at least make for some interesting conversation in an otherwise boring neighborhood.

I suspect it would a very brief conversation. Consider

*You* would make them nervous? I can only imagine what, say, Syrian refugees would make of me.

Why such short time frames? Consider
