A much needed national view of immigrant Muslims

Reader comment on item: Faces of American Islam[: Muslim Immigrants]

Submitted by Rick Steeno (United States), Aug 17, 2002 at 11:40

Thanks for the insights on immigrant Muslims. Many of us are deeply concerned about just what kind of Muslims live among us. I'm glad to read of the diversity and range of attitudes and outlooks of these many immigrants. I'm a stong believer in the idea that ALL people naturally yearn for freedom and self-expression. After reading this article it appears that immigrant Muslims are traveling roads taken by many other cultures and peoples who have come to America. America's freedoms and opportunities will surely evolve and grow the Muslim people among us; to the benefit of both.
