in response to reader comment: Muslims as patriotic citizens?

I was struck by Nadir's comments. Particularly the one about teaching Americans the 'truth' about this conflict. It amazes one to watch as a person who calmly espouses several tenets of the terrorists' beliefs declares himself 'neutral'!
