WOW

Reader comment on item: CAIR Accepted as "Mainstream"

Submitted by Mohamed Ali (United States), Mar 13, 2009 at 11:20

All I can say is WOW. I really pity those so called Americans, who encourage segregating and ridiculing an entire religious group under 'guilty by association'. I'm a proud Muslim American, yet I do not allow any Islamophobic to question my patriotism. I do not agree nor do I condone what happened on 9-11. Muslims and Arabs have contributed to the development and civility of mankind as any other nation. Those who deny Islam that contribution, I'd like to remind them of terms that might ring a bell such as; Algebra, Algorithm, Alchemy (chemistry), the very freaking numerics system, Digital system..etc.

What happened to all these contributions in different fields ? It is easy to point a finger at someone, but it's hard to know that three fingers at pointing back at you. Who killed the Jews and persecuted them in Europe ? When did maniacs and psychos do under the name of cross ( Crusaders, KKKs and Nazis) ? Does it mean all the Christians believe in the same absurdity those psychos believed in ? Let's stop this ignorance and arrogance that divided this country into blue, red, white, black, christian, muslim.

I'm glad that we've got a president, whose name is Barak HUSSAIN, just to silence those racist voices who claim to be the only Americans. No one has the authority nor the right to question my patriotism just because I'm a Muslim. I repeat again, non has the right to question my patriotism. I am as American as you all are, so don't come around labeling who should be an American and who shouldn't.
