Muslims Should Not Be Discriminated Against!

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

Submitted by Brother Warsameh (United States), Nov 3, 2002 at 23:26

Harmful people, no matter which religion they subscribe to, should not be allowed to freely roam in the states to harm the innocent. However, since 9/11, Muslims suffered greatly--especially the Middle Easterners. Needless to say, most Muslims are not prone to commit terrorism. A handful of bad guys should not be allowed to blackmail the one billion Muslims world wide. The American people should be very careful not the catch the contagious Islamaphopia that started spreading like a wildfire a year or so ago.

Like other immigrants from other faiths, Muslims should have every right to pursue the American dream. Much of the fear against Islam/Muslims is based on ignorance and utter racism--it is sad but that is the truth.
