Your right, This does remind me of High school! I was the only Muslim at my High School. I had to often do what I am doing now which is debate a group of people at one time.

How can you make me angry? I had a professor who basically said that my Prophet was a warlord! How is that for academia?

The reason why I respond to this blog, is because I have a habit of choosing to fight uphill battles. I know that this site is simply another hate site for propaganda. I know that the people who blog here are extremists and who I do not believe to represent the majority of American population, maybe my illusion or wishful thinking.

The sad aspect is that I am much different than I was 7 years ago. I would have been called a liberal Muslim. The West has a way of polarizing Muslims. I had trust in this government and the ideals that are fed to us, only it turns out that I was wrong as so many of you are. Delusions blind the people. I don't profess to have all knowledge, but that is what is frightening. I am speaking of only what I know; Imagine all of the secrets and scandals that have not surfaced yet. Imagine we live in a day and time where people have been and are tortured and imprisoned solely based on speculation by the laws of this country? The law protects torture! Human rights groups have proven that these "coercive" techniques are actually manifested torture! They are against the Geneva conventions yet, they have eluded our laws for over seven years!! A gross injustice that is being practiced openly! A time when the FBI can go to any home in America and take people without a warrant or evidence in the very least. The Patriot act! A time when the President uses his executive power to tap the phones of people unjustly! My phone could be tapped, probably is. A time when an internationally illegal war is waged in the name of Freedom. There is coming a time where there will be no room for liberal Muslims. The argument that Islam is immoral in gaining stronghold in this country. When this argument has been fulfilled, it will be immoral to be a Muslim regardless if you drink, fornicate, it won't matter. Calling yourself a Muslim will be enough for persecution in the future. Either your with us or against us,right? Europe is proving this with it's Hijab Ban, How is that for Freedom?

History repeats itself.

I blog here because I have a right to. It takes strength to be able to defend what you believe against so many hateful people. Muslims are called extremists, but what are the ideas in this forum but extreme? What are the politics of Western nations but extreme? I have simply stopped eating whatever is given to me. I question everything. The surety that I have is my religion is all I trust.

My blogs call for sanity. The return of Moderate beliefs.
