Muslims in America: Only You Can Challenge And Change Islamophobia

March 11, 2015


Islamophobia – prejudice and hate – is spreading in America. Muslims in America are experiencing flagdiscrimination in all walks of life and they are voicing their complaints. The media hate Muslims. They are the new scapegoats. Their religion is misunderstood. Their people are persecuted. And so on and so forth. Well, stop complaining and do something about it.

Remember that Catholics and Jews were persecuted when they first arrived in America. For them it was a long battle. It took time and patience, suffering and persecution, but they survived. Every new immigrant group has to be given this welcome treatment.

Today DSC_1414-2Catholics and Jews are accepted, successful citizens of the US. It need not be so, but America was built on persecution, genocide, slavery, etc.

Remember also that we stole half of Mexico and Mexicans are still not accepted in the US.

Muslims, it is now your turn to be persecuted. Your new name is terrorist. Thank God they have not genocided you or put you in concentration camps like the Japanese.

Well, Muslims, you can crawl out of the wood work and begin to work – like the Catholics and the Jews – to change the perceived American image of who you are and what your religion is all about.DSCN7910

For starters (1) Muslims are Abraham’s grand children, cousins of Jews and Christians. (2) While Europe wallowed in dirt (Middle Ages) Muslims were teaching the world about astronomy, math, medicine, philosophy, literature, poetry. (3) American backed terrorism in the Middle East is not Muslim’s fault. (4) Terrorists – ISIS, Al Qaeda, Taliban, Boko Haram et al (supplied with American weapons) – are not Muslims. (5) Government and media use propaganda to spread Islamophobia and create fear of Muslims in America.

It is a monumental task ahead. The Catholics and Jews had to over come there phobias and obstacles. If they can, so can you.

From Columbus and genocide to the first Pilgrims and genocide, America was a hard land to find acceptance. It need not be so, but it is the American way. You day will come, God Willing.

Challenge and change Islamophobia Muslims!
