Hi Susan

It's very important to educate others. I also have been doing my best , but it's also very important to remember to not make it personal but be tough and stay strong. we never know who is listening. we want the right message across as I am sure you are . be safe and be careful friend ,find strong local physical groups that feel the same and put together a strong but fair message and wide band it as much as possible.

I feel people can do what ever they want in their house as long as they don't put their boot to our throats. that goes especially for citizens of the west including America ( a country that I love ). if a citizen criticizes their culture's motives constantly and never puts forward realistic solutions except to say America is wrong ,bad , what have you ,then they are aiding and abetting the fanatical Muslims who are trying to destroy or conquer us. the more dangerous enemy we face today are the socialists in our countries that through their decadence, have come to the conclusion that there is only moral relevance. that is to say that they believe that there is only gray, no clarity , just different opinions .

One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter.

Who cares, even if that freedom fighter is good for some one else doesn't mean that I should respect his ideas (which might be against my country) to the point that his beliefs are as valid as yours. in the end , we must stick together and stop apologizing for being who we are , the other side. and make no mistake about it , the other side ( islamists ) believe they are right and we are wrong and they want the chance to prove it in a violent way, as soon as possible .

Are you finding people receptive to your words? Or are you getting the usual people calling you intolerant, racist.

Remember something, Muslims aren't a race so the charge of racism is misguided. and too much tolerance has only brought us to the ridiculous position of having to accept every one's view point above our own. more intolerance might be a good thing .
