you know, i've been reading here for some time now (though I am relatively new), and it has never once failed to amuse me how ironic and almost naive some of these comments are. for one, you say that the muslim ways are anti-american, correct? well, the fact is that you have it backwards. it is the american way to cater to different types of people...FREEDOM OF RELIGION...many of our first colonies were founded on that basis. now, why are you, as a PROUD AMERICAN, complaining that we get something for our religion? if it is the AMERICAN way to have interest in your loans, then you being the proud american that you are should have no problems paying it. otherwise, if you do think that interest is wrong and that muslims are at an advantage because they do not have to pay it, you are simply acknowledging the fact (note the word FACT) that the Muslim way is one of fairness. if it disgusts you to see us in a higher state because we have righteous beliefs (such as the prohibition of interest), then you ought to see the light and realize Islam's truth.

so, MOE, i tell you one thing. it is your own proudness to be an american that leads you to this: as a Muslim, one is obligated to follow commands laid down by Allah, and america caters to us because it was founded to do so. so either lay down your pride and see the light, or dont be a hypocrite by feeling disgust to your own selfish ways. my regards.
