My Dear f.sha,

Quoting you - "I met here so many Americans who can not say the truth about Islam as a terror source because they fear the Islamic revenge." Are these Muslim-Americans? Then it makes sense. They don't publically denounce Islamists often enough. Anyways, you say these Americans fear " the Islamic revenge". Why am I having a flash-back of Robin Williams' stint on "The Actor's Studio" where he used an audience member's shawl as a prop, and in the course of doing so he wraps it around his face, leaving just the eyes, and growls, "I AM A MUSLIM!! YOU WILL LISTEN to ME!!" or something to that effect.

Well, Mr.f.sha, you are about to meet another American, one who is certainly not afraid to speak her mind. A question first. What are you doing in the land of Shatan? Waiting to take over when all of us who fear the Islamic Revenge collapse into a quivering heap? You might just be waiting a while. Anticipating that you might think I'm being brave because of the communication via Internet, let me recount a few examples of conversations I've had with a Muslim.

His name is Omar, and he's a Khan from Bangledesh. He is a neighor of mine and we've had dozens of hours of conversations. I've asked him straight out about killing the infidel as a way to Paradise. About the fact that Israel is less than a quarter the size of California; why are the Middle Easterners so selfish as to want that slip of land when they occupy the majority of that part of the world? What about the practice of female castration in the Middle East? etc. Have to admit that last one surprised him; not the question itself but the fact that I knew about such things. Anyways my point is, can you tell, that this American is not concerned about your "Islamic Revenge".

One last comment on your letter. I'm quoting you: "That is why NY City opened an Arabic school in the style of madrassa in Pakistan." Question - why would NY City open a school in Pakistan? Why would it be an Arabic school? New York must have the one-up on teaching Arabic. Just kidding, Mr.f.sha. Good night, sleep tight, and don't let an American woman bite. Huevos y Carne! -JS
