Comments on here that suggest our founding fathers were diplomatic with the Ottomans/Turks, Persians, etc., need to be fact checked. They knew the threat to freedom that Islam brings, and are quoted for their desire to keep it in check. They may have been diplomatic toward the Middle Eastern governments, but not after Islam gripped them. While I don't want to make Iranian private businesses suffer, many of these so-called private businesses are state driven and state funded, much like Islam. And if it helps keep America safe from Islamic terror threats, then I agree.
