OPEN LETTER TO: Condoleezza Rice, Secretary of State


Ms. Rice,

WHY IS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA NOT CHALLENGING RATHER THAN APPEASING HYPOCRITICAL ISLAM? Hate is directed towards all religions/people .... especially Jews and Christians .... through loud speakers, media, schools, universities, conferences, mosques, cartoon depictions, etc....every day throughout the Moslem and free world while Islamic leaders condone and justify. Churches, temples, statues; religious Holy books and literature are continually desecrated. Innocence are blown up and publicly beheaded ..... all in the name of Allah. Yet ..... the silence heard in regards to condemnation from "moderate" Islam is deafening. It is my opinion that the "powers that be" who would appease their enemies rather than defend their own will be viewed by history as weak.

Groups of people are offended every day as a result of what is printed and said in the media of the free world, however, it is tolerated because the people recognized that there is a price to pay for the freedom to express. Ms. Rice, this freedom of expression …. even offensive freedom of expression …. must be defended, otherwise, I fear that it will just be a matter of time when not only Islam will be rioting in the streets ……. The people of the free world are not going to tolerate the double standard much longer.
