More on Islam?
I am not an expert of Islam. Those who are Muslim or have studied the religion in depth can help others who are interested in the religion or becoming part of it.
I have found a very comprehensive site on Islam Source 2
It goes through the most common questions anyone would have, especially after Sept. 11th.
Sometimes I think those who crave war forget that there are people in the Middle East just like you and me... They want success in life they want to go out to work and study and return home in peace.
Seems like many of the Muslims are feeling the brunt of this long war... What do you think? Has the worl become biased in its' opinions about Islam and people from Arab States?
|A report released today by a prominent national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group indicates that anti-Muslim incidents in the United States increased by 15 percent over the previous year.|
:spock: So then who would you recommend for Islamic-American relations news and reviews? Although it may be exaggerated, I can tell you that Muslims and those who look like people from the Middle East do have a harder time now since Sept. 11th.
I understand your point of view. I also understand the desire to avoid 'racial profiling.' However, from a security point of view, we don't have a choice.
While not all Muslims are terrorists, or terrorist sympathizers, all terrorists for the last two decades have been Muslims. Thus, in order to protect ourselves, we MUST watch Muslims in the US. There isn't any easy way to identify the Islamists from the rest of them.
It is estimated that only 10% of Muslims identify with the Islamist movement. That means that 100,000,000 people want to convert the world, starting with the US and Israel, to Islam - by force.
