Amazing Journalism

Reader comment on item: A Madrassah in Bridgeview, Illinois

It is obvious journalists experiencing life for the first time are extremely naive. How could this person 'white-wash' the extremism of the Muslims. Who amongst us wants this anti-American extremism to become the basis for a future religous war within the United States?

We must get our American Colleges and Universities back on track with what and how they teach Americanism, as the products coming out of those hallowed halls are becoming ever more anti-American in thier leanings.

A few years ago I was in a small German Village on a business trip and was amazed. As in most small German towns and villages there are two churches - a Catholic church, and a Lutheran Church. Often they are very near to each other as they were in that village. In the street in front of the two churches I encountered a long table with white linens on it, with a myriad of pamphlets, books, brochures etc.. Across the front of the tables was a large banner written in three languages - German, Arabic, and English. The banner said "There is only one true God - Allah is the one true God". This was staffed by large contingent of Arabic people.
My question back to the article is, what will you do when they set their tables up in front of your church or synagogue?...
