Reader comment on item: "Muslims Only!" Events

Submitted by Sarah (United States), Sep 8, 2006 at 15:18

Some of these posts are saddening. It is so upsetting to see such a large group of IGNORANT people Have you ever personally met or spoken to a muslim person in your life? Muslims are not suicide bombers, or terrorists, and etc (those people are of an extremist group, like the KKK, Aryan Nations, Christian Identity, self described Neo-nazis and etc Racism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ). They are doctors, nurses, teachers, scholars, accountants, inventors, politicians, engineers, managers, cashiers. You name it, there is probably a muslim who has done it, a Muslim who has contributed to building a greater America.The fact that Muslims have rented Six Flags out for a DAY has absolutely nothing to do with you. When people sat down to plan this event and others like it, it was not a meeting on how to exclude or alienate non-muslims. It was a focus on how to ensure that Muslims will have a fun and halal day where they will be able to do all the things they couldn't normally do on a regular visit to 6 flags. Muslim pray 5 times a day, so there will be designated prayer days. Muslims eat halal food only , so the vendors will serve Halal food. Muslims don't gamble or drink and are not allowed to be in places where those things occur, so there will not be any gambling or drinking....

Do your research before you black list a whole community for the wrong doings of others...
