I have to disagree with so many blogs who seem determined to show as much disrespect for Muslims as possible with not only reprinting the offending Danish cartoons, but making up their own. I realize that many feel they are throwing it back into the face of fanatical Muslims who threaten us, but they seem to forget peaceful Muslims are offended too
I admire her desire to reach out to the moderates within Islam and to avoid needless offense. However, the flaw, as I pointed out in her comments section, is the radicals who will find any reason to hate and kill.
That post and the comments it generated, led to an interview with a Muslim which she covers in Understanding:
RWsparkle-How do you feel about the clerics who preach so much hate for America?
Hind-I think they are damaging the way Islam looks.. & we Muslims dislike those people's actions more than any other person from any other Religion!
Her interview is a must read, as some are tempted to think all Muslims are terrorists. I'll follow up tomorrow with my own post covering Muslim voice's of reason in this crisis. Unfortunately, the extremists continue their rampage and appear to be drowning them out.
