To Cher with love and affection

Islam will never come into American hearts, through the kind of mass murderous genocidal campaigns that European whites inflicted on American Natives. If there are scare tactics, it is from those Islamophobes that find ground slipping under their feet and are making a monster of Islam. Islam always adopts middle path -- no excesses on either sides. Neither too lenient, nor too rigid. We all have knives in our kitchens, but we know how to use them to help us in our essential daily chores.

Adversaries of Islam are desperate to find how Islam is becoming an alternative to the afflictions plaguing American society. The Hedonism of the liberals is being commercialized. Islam invites everybody to revert to basic human decencies. The current feverish demonizing of Islam and Muslims is a direct hyper reaction of the neo-cons that is gripping the media after 9/11 was thrust on Islam and Muslims.

America is a nation of reason as well as of faith. 9/11 is being analyzed for its perfidious nature of manipulated mass murder, overwhelming being proved through scientific analysis, as an inside job of some criminal gangs out to hijack American for the exclusive exploitation of a global misadventure, in the hope that a handful of Americans will reap the rewards of war-making. Alas, the results that are coming, have shown the flaws in the reasoning of the neo-cons.

It is heartening, that some of the more far-sighted among the same neo-cons are willing to review their mistaken resort to hate and aggression in furtherance of untenable goals. One hopes, Americans will soon have more exposure to how the rest of the world feels about their global agenda and the abrasive content of the neo-cons that changed the very tone and tenor of American diplomacy in the world. Americas rulers will soon realize the limits of their aggressive powers. Their unilateralist surge to conquer the world, a pathetic idea that has dogged mankind for millenniums, is facing ever increasing reactions around the world.

A new cold war is brewing and it is being recognized and conceptualized by the U.S. intellectuals themselves. American people are most resilient and cannot be fooled for long. The truth will come out, sooner than expected. Islam is nowhere in the picture. It was merely dragged in as a convenient backdrop. However, it is the destiny of the Americas that they will discover some universal truths that had been kept hidden from them for long. Including you dear Cher.
