Embracing the best culture, not "multiculturalism"

Reader comment on item: A Madrasa Grows in Brooklyn

Submitted by Caesar M. Arevalo (United States), Apr 25, 2007 at 00:53

Anti-American politicians are dividing America through this poisonous ideology called "multiculturalism." The problem is that these prophets of "multiculturalism" do not believe that there exists an American culture. And in the case that it does exist, according to them, American culture is "racist" and "sexist" and "homophobic."

It is under this cultural degradation that anti-American Muslims contribute to the destruction of America from within. Making use of our sacred liberties, and with the help of the anti-American elite, hard line Muslims are trying to convert America in a Muslim caliphate. For these Muslims, there is not such thing as "multiculturalism" and "diversity," let alone "tolerance." Actually, devout Muslims will silence the anti-American crowd in a Muslim dominated society.

The problem with these so-called Islamic academies is that they are just centers of indoctrination and brainwashing into the religion of Islam. It would be interesting to know how "multicultural" these Islamic centers of hate are when they are confronted with the teachings of the Quran regarding Jews, Christians, women, non-Muslims, former Muslims, Buddhists, Sikhs, atheists, and others.

If Multiculturalism means something, then it must unite Americans in one spirit and love for this country, regardless of our political differences. Also, instead of "learning" hate and bigotry and religious intolerance from Islam and fanatic Islamists, we need to appreciate the cultures that made the world better, and reject the ones that cause destruction and ignorance.

For example, which culture must the New York Department of Education look up to in order to make America better? The culture that produced eight Nobel Prize winners or the culture that produced more than one hundred eighty Nobel Prize winners? If the answer is the culture that produced more than one hundred eighty Nobel Prize winners, then we need to open more Jewish schools across America. In contrast to the excellence of Jewish education, the culture that produced more terrorists around the world is the Muslim-Arabic culture.
