Re: Re: clay pots/Dillon Seed Co


Not all Muslims are terrorists. My dear friend Ali is orignally from
Iran (been here since he was a teenager) and he's a delight. He's 45 now
and no more a threat than your pet. But he still gets grief when
travelling. Too bad. Fanatics are the only problem, regardless of who
they pray to.
