Skip to comments.US Muslims find defending themselves exhausting

As the profile of American Muslims has been heightened by the 9/11 attacks and subsequent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, many Muslims say they too have been inspired to protect their communities against terrorism. They are becoming more active in civic and political causes and more regularly reach out to law enforcement officials.
"No community is working more diligently than the Muslim community," said Sally Howell, an associate professor at University of Michigan-Dearborn and author of several books and essays on Arabs and Muslims in Detroit.
"Really, there is nobody in our society that is more concerned about this than the Muslim community. There have been instances of this coming from their community and they don't want it to happen."
Emotions were strong in the hearing room in Washington. Framed by photos of the burning World Trade Center and Pentagon, two families argued Islam was responsible for luring young men to become radicals. On the other side, Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison one of two Muslims in Congress wept while discussing a Muslim firefighter who died in the attacks.
Jim Riches, a former New York City deputy fire chief whose son, Jimmy, was killed at the trade center, said he believes Muslims can do more.
"All people should be treated the same way, but the Muslim community has to step up," he said. "There are plots being hatched in mosques. It's a major problem. Muslim terrorists are on our soil." A handful of Somali and Muslim community leaders in Minnesota gathered to watch Thursday's hearing, clapping and nodding their heads in agreement when one witness called the proceedings skewed.

There are no “American Muslims”. You are one or the other.
>>”No community is working more diligently than the Muslim community,” <<
The rest of the sentence: “...at bringing Jihad and Sharia to the USA.”
I suggest just dropping the Koran, throw out the prayer rugs, get rid of the goats and any bomb vests and remove all of Islam from your life.
Exhausting will be the least of most Moslems situations in the future.
Maybe you’d feel better if you coughed up the jihadists in your midst.
Libatrds are trying to meld religious faith into a racial trait...
But they would never use the term “Christian-American”...to them...there is no such thing...
And there were hearings on christians after OKC...
So the muzzies can pound sand.
Take a breather and leave the country for generation or 50 then.
More indoctrination because of the King Hearings. It has them flinching.
Then stand up and publicly denounce every friggin jihadi, every attack on innocent people, every honor killing.......
All I ever hear from this community is crickets when it comes to denouncing the above issues. But they sure do bitch when called on their lack of concern.
TELL IT TO OSAMA~!
MAYBE IF A FEW OF YOU GOT TOGETHER AND ELIMINATED THE TERRORISTS AMONG YOU
ITS TRUE THAT MOST MUSLIMS ARE NOT TERRORIST, BUT THAT IS NOT THE POINT
THE POINT IS THAT MOST TERRORIST *ARE* MUSLIMS
Then defend yourself back wherever you came from! WE were attacked on 9/11! YOU are the ones shoving “Sharia Law” and a ground zero mosque down our throats! Go home!!
Maybe they should go back to their Islamic Utopias.
So - when your brain logic tells you are worshiping something evil - but you know if your mouth voices these concerns you'll get your head lopped off (most likely by your own relatives) - you have to come up with exhausting methods that require to shut off your mind: i.e., 'don't think about the words of the koran - just chant them over and over again. The Arabic is beautiful ...' in fact its better if you don't know the Arabic because you won't understand the meaning ... which in the case of the koran follower - this would be a good thing (to avoid brain hemorrhaging).
Yes - I can imagine the exhaustion. I pray, at some point, they can find Rest in the Lord Jesus...
In Dearborn people poured into the main shopping street on 9-11 to cheer and merchants handed out candy to the celebrating crowds. In Dearborn High School Muslim students cheered in the halls at the news and intimidated the non-Muslim minority students with violent threats. None of this was widely broadcast as from the White House to the outhouse all the political class was busy already with the refrain ‘Religion of Peace is not responsible for these bad actions’.
The actions of Muslims in Dearborn that day told me all i needed to know about Islam. The Japanese Americans didn't gather under pictures of Hirohito to cheer Dec 7. But Muslims did cheer Sept 11. While the Constitution forbids it i believe these people ought be expelled for this country en masse.
THIS is what Moslems are trying to do.
Tears and wringing of the hands by a Moslems father who lost, Mohammad, in 911 doesn't change the fact that ALL the hijackers were Moslems.
What creeps me out is this “father” still defends Islam! He didn't take the politically correct out that “radical” Moslems must be stopped. NO! Instead he DEFENDED ISLAM and pretended that MOSLEM is a GOOD RELIGION. He is blind and using EMOTIONS to pull at your heart strings to deny the OBVIOUS that ISLAM is EVIL. ALL of ISLAM is EVIL.
“Cafeteria style Moslems” who don't want violence and beheadings are just that - picking and choosing what they WANT to believe. They are NOT taking the Koran seriously or following Mohammad's teachings. I purpsoly spell those that follow Islam, Moslems. Until a few years ago, they were called Moslems. Well, Moslems were offended by that term so they changed it to Muslims. WHY were they offended? Because a Muslim in Arabic means "one who gives himself to God," and is by definition, someone who adheres to Islam. By contrast, a Moslem in Arabic means "one who is evil and unjust" when the word is pronounced, as it is in English, Mozlem with a z. " Call them what they are - MOSLEMS!
His emotions will not sway me in seeing Islam for what it is, EVIL! It has always been evil. His own son was killed by the vileness of Islam and still he remains BLIND and defends EVIL with tears. This man is an insult to my intellect.
Agreed....stop letting them emigrate to the US, period. We don’t need them, never did - never will. Maybe they wouldn’t be so exhausted at defending their religion of faith, if they would just once, once, mind you, scream out at the top of their lungs at the atrocities their brothers in Islam all over the world are committing. They are just a bunch of devious, evil zealots - some smarter and more subtle than others, but the same nonetheless.
Other men and women. No Satan necessary.
A lot of Obama supporters have also said that defending Barry is “exhausting” too. Must be a muzzie thing. We need a law against people getting “exhausted”.
