Sami Ahmed writes:
"... Muslims in America are educated and peaceful people who are struggling against discrimination, misinformation and hatred that people are spreading up to intimidate them."

Then why aren't peaceful Muslims denouncing the actions of radical Islam? Could it be that the intimidation they are facing isn't from non-Muslims but from radical Islam? I've never seen moderate Muslims stand up and denouce the brutality of the radicals. If they don't, they should expect mistrust and discrimination. What other reaction could there be?
