Daniel,

You are the only person it seems to bother to feature a moderate muslim or ackowledge they exist.

Sorry, but it sure seems a majority of your fans are committed to blowing up the kaaba and start a crusade. ... There are a heck of a lot more people like Omran Salman out there. FEATURE THEM. Monal el Tahawy, Irhsad Manji, and others are not very supportive of our govenrment, but they sure do a lot to confront the status quo than you seem to pull off.

I think that Islamophobes do more to sabotage our efforts than a nitwit like Cindy Sheehan could even begin to imagine. The enemy of my friend is my enemy, right? Our president doesnt echo such BS. He thanks our muslims friends, and rightly so. Yet few of my fellow americans can even calm down for a minute to recognize the reason why. It's pretty simple when you think about it. We badly need their help, and they badly want us to succeed. Some even vote republican, imagine that! they fight in our military, and provide BADLY needed help with our homeland security, right?

Yet so many of your fans just need to trash them, like any knee-jerk reactionary idiot. Your friends ... claim to not trash muslims, but from where I sit, they doesn't feature Omran, and most of their fans don;t even want to know about it, because it feel so damn good to hate, do';t it??? Islamophobes only help people like Osama, Nasrallah, and Ahmedinejad to prove their stupid arguments as valid to their constituents. Yet sectarian "truth-mongering" seems to make a lot of idiots feel better about themselves. Yet what do they really do to help? Why not encourage more to learn the necessary lanaguges? Oh, I forgot, if you do that, you're a "terrorist sympathizer, caught in that nefarious web of Middle Eastern studies". Kind of a catch-22 don't you think?

Please mention and highlight more Muslims who help us, who LAY DOWN THEIR LIVES to assist us, who give us verbal, and physical support. It only happens on a daily basis, if you care to admit it. You know, the muslims who fight in our military, who help the FBI, who are members of the CIA, not to mention tyhose trying to create a little bit of order out of chaos. They are, after all, far too busy fighting a war, and for some very personal reasons, to be here BLOWING hot air here, oh, I mean BLOG...
