I am continually struck by the ignorance of the Muslim community--both here and around the world--about the consequences of their political and religious beliefs. I can't tell whether otherwise peaceful Muslims are simply naive or cowardly in not recognizing and standing up to anti-Western creeds and actions.

This was a no-brainer for Ms Almontaser, and yet she chose a defiant and indefensible position. Who was she trying to please? Where did she think she was living?

My goodness, in defeating the Nazis we as free and secular people showed we can triumph over the most brutal war machine ever assembled. To entertain fantasies of overthrowing "The Great Satan" is not only a 12th century pipe dream, it is a dangerous one that will sooner or later end up with millions of their brethern dead, as the Germans found out.
