We Fear You!

Many Muslims are bitter about the attitudes of people in the West toward their culture and Islam in general. This bitterness is both justified and not, but in this post I will be discussing ways to change the status quo. Continue reading

Equality for Arab Women

America’s Right-Wing Fringe (Tea Party and Far Right Wing): Part 1

It is silly season in American politics, so we have to hear endless harangues by America’s right-wingers about their unsupportable claims about practically everything. This is because our networks feel somehow compelled to give them equal time to speak, even though they don’t speak for all that many Americans. Continue reading

Dear Clara (@ Women's Rights in Islam and the West)

I certainly sympathize with your point about not being subjugated. My point in part is that subjugation and abuse of women is a worldwide problem and phenomenon. Many US divorces are brought on by this. In my opinion, Muslim women also do not want to be subjugated, and they are now seeing that women outside the Muslim World are standing up for their rights. This information dissemination cannot be stopped. As this process happens, Muslim women will naturally stand up for their own rights, and the nature of Islam itself will change. But this will take much courage and a very long time. Continue reading

What Do You Expect? (Criticizing Reticence of Muslims)

Essentially all of my Muslim friends are cynical about the prospects of attitudes towards Islam changing in the West, as well they should be! Today, when I shared my views about Rev.? Terry Jones, one acquaintance responded by simply sending this link, with no comment. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-11236158 . I infer that he is saying to me that I am on a fool’s errand, because I’m up against western politicians. After reading the article I ask, “What do you expect?” Continue reading

"Ten Reasons to Burn …" Analyzed (In My Opinion)

The Rev.? Terry Jones needs money! This can be the only reason why he would stir up this controversy about burning the Koran. There will be enough Americans who believe such crazies to get him over his cash crunch. But that does not mean that he represents anything like a majority of American, Christian, or Western thought. CNN, MSNBC and other inflamers need money too! That’s why they let this crackpot stir things up instead of ignoring him. Continue reading
