The fear of Moslems

Reader comment on item: America's Crash Course on Islam

Submitted by f.sha (United States), Sep 15, 2007 at 18:13

For example, the phrase "war on terror," widely accepted six years ago, is now generally seen as obsolete because it confuses a tactic with an enemy (though the term continues to be used due to the lack of consensus on a replacement). Nor would any high American official today repeat anything like then-Secretary of State Powell's analysis one day after September 11, 2001, that the terrorist attacks "should not be seen as something done by Arabs or Islamics; it is something that was done by terrorists."

I am sorry the above is the attitude of so many Americans.
This attitude is due to the fear or ignorance.
I met here so many Americans who cannot say the truth about Islam as a terror source because they fear the Islamic revenge.
I think so many politicians in this country are trying to appease the Moslems even it is clear to any one that Islam is the motive for the Terror.
That is why NY City opened an Arabic school in the style of madrassa in Pakistan.
