The Balkanization of the Republican Party

The “sick man” of American politics, the Republican Party, has finally begun to show us just how messed up it really is.  Here’s my assessment of where they are in the 2012 election campaign, with separate observations for each branch of … 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

"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

Dear Muslim Friends

I am sure you have seen the political controversy that has recently been stirred up by our political nut cases about the proposed Mosque in Manhattan, near the site of the former World Trade Center. Continue reading
