in response to reader comment: Arabic High School

I live in NYC, and this is utterly ridiculous...American kids don't even know American history, and now we're going to establish a Madrassa in the Public school system...what the heck is wrong with Americans...we were just attacked violently by a socio-political imperialistic culture that wants to Arabize us and now they go along with the murderers plans... Americans are sick and deserve what they get.

We should be Americanizing the Arabs, not Arabizing our children and ourselves...this is just discussing. American Nationalism is different than any other (except one, keep reading). Ours is a Nationalism of Idealism, all other cultures are inferior, that's right, because they derive from circumstance...except Islam...Islam also is a Nationality of idealism, but it is the antithesis of American Nationalism, which is freedom of conscience, self determination, and true equality and justice for all people, Islam is none of these things – if it was their culture would have developed an America – but it didn't.

The past failures of American has been falling back into the culture of circumstance, past immigrants brought with them, our past successes have been rising to our culture of idealism, all those immigrants embraced as their own. Those successes were the result of the culture of idealism our forefathers set forth for us, based on reason (and IMO divine providence). Islam is evil, not because I make reference through my culture of circumstance, but because it is the antithesis of my culture of idealism, and everything that is good and decent in the human mind and heart.
