Americans have no problem with Muslims (I have a Muslim doctor). Americans do not want to have Sharia law. Actually, I agree with many things that Muslims consider wrong in the US.
I would like to see women more covered up...though I don't want that to be "law" and forced upon them. I don't believe in headscarves and veils being forced on anyone, but women should cover more of their bodies.
The Arabs are right that many women should not drive. However, they forgot that many men should not drive, as well.
I do not agree that the best society can never question religious authority. If that were true we would all be worshipping carved stone statues from caveman days.
I do wish that Muslim women in the Middle East felt more secure and able to befriend other women without fear of gossip.
America is not anti-Islamic at all. We accept all religions as having the same right to exist. I would risk my life to save a Muslim child from a burning building, even if the building were burning as a result of a Muslim terrorist act.
Americans do not want to be told what to think and what to do. We can be persuaded to convert to another religion if we find it is a good religion, but people who are forced to accept a religion will never be true believers of that faith. If you, as a Muslim, were forced to attend an American Christian church and forced to say that Jesus is God, would that make you a Christian? No, only on the outside.
God bless all people of all religions. Muslims are more likely to convert Christians to Islam if they would stop allowing terrorists to blow up buildings and blowing up people. Americans are very fair towards all people. We would like Muslims to be a part of America....but we want to be Americans.
We do not hate Muslims. There are many Muslims that I admire, but I am an American and I believe that America is a great country. Most Americans do not want to have the war with Iraq or Afghanistan. We do NOT want that war at all. And, because I am an American, I am allowed to say that I do not believe in the war even though my president will not stop the war.
