This is in response to the article on 6/23/06, "Muslims speak out."
I've been tardy in catching up with readings of my accumulated New-Sentinels, having been gone for a bit.
The mentioned article originating in Amsterdam was quite interesting to me as I'm one of many that have been wondering with some dismay why the "immigrant Muslims" fail to clearly speak out about the "Muslim terrorist" patterns around the world. We obviously have a passionate "everybody deserves equal treatment" mentality in most of the USA.
Racial "profiling" is a hot button issue, but, how do we protect ourselves? The Netherlands article points out that the Muslim "community" is driven by an atmosphere of intimidation from within. Our Anglo-American masses in the USA would be far more accepting if the USA-Muslim communities would speak up and speak out about this subject matter so that the American mainstream folks don't view the Muslim community in America as one big contiguous threat to our existing ways of life.
If the Muslims on American soil have been speaking out, then I must have missed the comments. I look forward to any additional articles that the News-Sentinel may publish on this issue.
