My last comment on the Huffington post

I am a moderate Muslim and I find that public hearing in Congress on the "radicaliz­ation" of Muslim Americans makes sense. Last year, we had few incidents of internal terrorism: The Fort Hood incident; the failed car bomber in New York; The Pakistani American arrested in Ashburn Virginia and the incident of a Somali American arrested after a sting operation. This last young Muslim attempted to bomb a public square during a Christmas lighting ceremony. I am glad that it was a sting operation.
I believe that instead of opposing that public hearing, try to make sure that it stays fair and serve its purpose. Instead of acting defensive and plead the fifth and sue for harassment­, moderate Muslims should first defend their religion against Islamists.

There is a lot to be done by moderate Muslims in addition to earn a decent living. I do a small part in my daily blog moderatemu­slimspeaks­up. I feel that it is our duty which is not imposed by others, to update old interpreta­tion of Koran and help save the Muslim youth from falling into the hands of Islamists.
I get randomly selected at airports all the time and you know how it makes me feel. It makes me feel safe because I am going to be on that plane as well.

  1. To all that read this know that I, a white, blond haired, blue eyed, member of the US armed forces, sometimes even traveling on official orders, also get randomly searched at airports. Just a note in case any readers feel persecuted in going through security.
