Syed,

Always a pleasure to hear from a man who chooses to live in the world's largest democracy.

While you're raising your voice, just be sure to follow the rules and never, never raise your voice against the killing of innocent Muslims by Muslims in Gaza (Muslims handcuffed and thrown off rooftops by Hamas) or Iraq (thousands per year murdered by Saddam Hussain prior to being removed by the US) or later in Iraq (weddings, funerals, girls' schools (filled with girls) childrens' playgrounds (filled with children) markets, mosques, crowded with Muslims, blown up by Muslims) or the Islamic Republic of Pakistan (can we go a month without a mosque exploding there?) or Syria (the city of Hama is kind of a dead place, isn't it?) or Iran, where people are taken off the streets and from their homes to disappear in prison.

Remember, let's never hear a whisper of protest against any of that.

Better to save your rage for more important things, like cartoons and teddy bears.
