Is Anyone Listening?

Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?

Submitted by Bryan Bessner, Jun 18, 2002 at 16:40

Your article points out the truth (as always), but who is really listening to it? The US Government would like to believe that there are moderate Muslim organizations within our borders; this makes things more palatable for them, and allows them to be "politically correct" in these stupidly oh-so-sensitive times. Mueller & Co. honestly believe (I think) that if they show friendliness and tolerance to these people, they will receive a similar response. How naive and sad.
I hope you are not going to be seen as a Cassandra. (i.e., I dearly hope that nothing further will happen in the US, comparable to Sept. 11) However, I am pessimistic.
Meanwhile, congratulations on being the voice of truth in these maddening times.
