What about our side?

Reader comment on item: The Danger Within: Militant Islam in America [and Its Dreams of Domination]

...Did you ever think of how America has treated us?

After 9/11 we were subject to many humiliations at the hands of people who thought that just because we looked Middle Eastern or Muslim, that we were terrorists. The government of the U.S. treated all of us that way as well, and how do you think it feels to have your own government turn on you?

I would say that many Muslims out there are perfectly justified to feel anger towards the government and the United States as a whole. But I am not saying that that condones terrorism, because terrorism is a horrible thing. But the Muslim terrorist organizations aren't the only ones out there, and it seems as if Americans have forgotten this!
