Umm, hello Abbie. I disagree with three quarters what you just said..

First off, let me say what i do agree with. Some people, muslims, jews and christians alike need to change their thinking. We can live at peace. Peace is actually easier than war and conflict. However, when you generalise all muslims as thinking that way and talk about muslims specefically without admitting that jews have huge examples oh the largest anti-islam and anti-arab as their leaders.. then you are also shrugging responsibility in some way. The jews are not all from an angelic and peaceful place, as a matter of fact a lot of them have done very very bad things that i would rather not get into again. And so have muslims as well as christians. We are people, and people make mistakes. People also do good things. I hope we can all try to do more good than bad and God as our witness admit to our mistakes and make ammends.

And when you say if muslims want to live in the USA they must try not to seperate themselves.. I disagree. We all try to live to our full potential. By following everyone else then you are seperating yourself from everyone else in that you are the person not following your dreams and aspirations, which might be different from other people due to whatever reason.. Diversity is as important as peace itself. Without diversity there can be no peace. Because we would all be cloned into the same thought. We arent all Arabs, we arent all americans, we arent all Muslims or jews or Christians. But we all share the same feelings, emotions and space. So we must be tolerant to others but in no way submissive. Live in peace, but live as yourself living in peace. Dont be someone else and dont force anyone else to be you! :)
