Well, in your initial reply you cited Dearborn, Michigan. You ever been there? The previous business I owned brought me to Dearborn, Michigan once
every month. There sure are a LOT of Muslims living there! Even all of the city-council, mayor, law professional, and medical billboards featured
Muslim people. It's almost a "Little Mecca." Not many franchise stores... mostly all businesses are locally owned and feature high-end custom
architecture. I have NEVER once ran into a radical Muslim threatening me in any way in Dearborn. All of the people there are.... PEOPLE!
That Florida preacher Terry Jones wanted to hold an armed rally against Islam while burning Qur'ans. The idiot accidentally shot his gun in the
parking lot of a Fox affiliated studio, thank God no one was hurt! He planned this rally on the SAME day as an International Islamic Festival. Fully
armed Christians burning Qur'ans... who were the inciters here? On top of that, Dearborn police arrested 6 men trying to assault Terry Jones during
his short-lived protest rally. I do not see the law enforcement bias to support or protect Islam in this case.
I only wanted to correct you about Dearborn, because I know the area very well personally. I know you can easily bring up countless events featuring
Islamic hate, violence, or bigotry.
I am not a fan of Islam either. You know what I did about it? I made my own thread to bash Islam based on evidence instead of de-railing others':
Becoming Muslim: I Did Not Read The Fine Print
. I even made 2 threads trying to
cultivate inter-religious understanding: Human Unification Through Understanding Spiritual
and Blind Men And An Elephant; Perspective and Relativity
At the end of this 'debate' we are having... the OP is a passionate call to Human Rights regardless of religion or lack of religion. It is a historic
moment in time where courageous people stood up to their corrupt governmental system. The only thing I see in the OP is Unity, Passion, Hope, and
Courage. If you have something to say other than those concepts, I suggest you make your own thread.
I was hoping this thread would be a catalyst for Unity and brotherhood.... I didn't think I'd be here "arguing."
Assalamu alaikum (May Peace be upon you).
