Muslims would do well to complain less about perceived greivances and take a very stong and very public stand against the terrorists whatever you want to call them. Here is one Muslim whom we can all applaud.
Emilo Karim Dabul writing in the NY Post says:
WELL, here it is, five years late, but here just the same: an apology from an Arab-American for 9/11. No, I didn't help organize the killers or contribute in any way to their terrible cause. However, I was one of millions of Arab-Americans who did the unspeakable on 9/11: nothing.Notice that he said "fear" had prevented him from speaking out previously. Even in America, Muslims are afraid to speak out against the Islamo-Fascists. I believe Islam means submission to Allah, not some irrational lunatics bent on reestablishing a caliphate.
The only time I raised my voice in protest against these men who killed thousands of innocents in the name of Allah was behind closed doors, among the safety of friends and family. I did at one point write a very vitriolic essay condemning their actions, but fear of becoming another Salman Rushdie kept me from ever trying to publish it.
Well, I'm sick of saying the truth only in private - that Arabs around the world, including Arab-Americans like myself, need to start holding our own culture accountable for the insane, violent actions that our extremists have perpetrated on the world at large.
Yes, our extremists and our culture.
Until more Muslims denounce the Islamo Fascists in the strongest and most unequivocal terms, the rest of us will suspect that the dominant emotion of the Muslim community is not one of fear but of sympathy. And we are not sympathetic to that.
