Forgive me if I may come off a bit rude. I don't mean too.

If "Living in America requires a commitment to freedom for others as well as for yourself." wouldn't you say it's our choice and freedom to be and act how we wish?

Also, everyone is individual in their wants and how they act so you can't exactly base one muslim off another when they are two different people. Some of us don't keep silent and does it honestly seem as if I'm keeping silent right at this moment?

Of course we believe in human freedom for everyone. It is taught in our religion to respect others and that all humans are equal. We are here b/c we want our freedom of religion just as much as the next person. And World History happens to be my favorite subject at the school. I've learned much more at this school than at the school I went before.

You shouldn't talk about our curriculim unless you've gone through it yourself in the exact same classes taught in our school. So if you want to speak badly about our school and our religion, first actually come to the school and go through being a student for 3 months and THEN maybe you have enough right to do so. The people in this community are the best people I have ever met and they are perfectly happy here. I'm glad to be a part of them. See it from both sides before you become prejudice please.
