==Stay Safe== Dearborn is a hotbed of Islamic Fundamentalism. If you are Jewish and/or support the "War on Terror," do not advertise that fact. While marginally more assimilated and nowhere near the threat they pose in other cities such as Paris, Rotterdam or Amsterdam, Islamic Fundamentalists are best left alone to their beliefs.
