hussein -- I respect your openness and I am sad that you were persecuted when you came here. 9/11 changed this country, and most Americans still
believe the official lie that muslims caused it, when in reality it was the US government that caused it. With that in mind, it's understandable
that many Americans (especially in 2005) would have been fearful of you and any muslims at that time.
However, also bear in mind that even though the US government perpetrated the horrors of 9/11, there ARE muslim extremists in the world who are
dangerous. Not all belief systems are created equal, and unfortunately, islam seems prone to extremism in the modern age. You are not an extremist,
so it is not your fault personally. However, you still have to understand why there is going to be a rift there.
I don't really have an answer for you, except to say -- don't bother coming back here, because there's nothing much here worth celebrating anymore.
I live in the US and I cannot stand what this country is becoming. I would leave right now if I had enough money and knew any better place to flee
I want you to know that I had the chance to get a very high paying job ($100k+) working for a company that worked with the US military. Even though I
am broke, I turned down that job because I could not, as a human being with any conscience, support the crimes the US military is committing in Iraq
and Afghanistan. And the more I learn about the crimes of the US military and government, the more glad I am that I had absolutely no part in it.
I wish the corrupt leaders in the world didn't create these tragedies and rifts between people. Unfortunately they do. Just remember that most
people in the world are good, it's the few who are corrupt and evil, and sometimes they can fool the masses into perpetrating that evil too.
