American Muslims should step up against radicals

Some things to think about. The radical Arab countries of the world, i.e., Iran, Palestinian Hamas, do not recognize Israel (who is it they want to stop shooting?). They are dedicated to the total annihilation of Israel. They fire rockets into Israeli homes on a daily basis.

How in the name of anybody’s God can people not recognize the injustice of condemning Israel for defending their citizens against the incessant rocket attacks? And isn’t it funny that with all of the atrocities committed against America, Israel and their allies, the American Muslim community has never been motivated to demonstrate against such actions? I have a memory burned into my heart and my brain after 9/11’s utter devastation to lives and property in New York. It is the obscene image of the Palestinians, including Hamas, people singing and dancing in seeming orgasmic joy at our great misfortune. These are the people you protesters against the Israelis are supporting?

I don’t care who you are. You do not deserve the great honor and privilege of American citizenship.
