The man is gentle and soft-spoken, smiling and patting the arm of the reporter questioning him. But there is a sadness in his weathered face. "We miss him very much," he says. "Only God knows best... I hope they come home one day — him and his father."

"Nauman Abbasi runs a nonprofit group dedicated to getting Muslims more involved in politics."There in a nutshell is your proverbial "Kiss of Death"

Any Muslim who will let his daughter or sister marry a Christian or who doesn't hate a Muslim who converts to another religion is welcome in my neighborhood, life and home.

The rest need deportation, as they are killers beneath their oily smiles.

Its sad really.  People just trying to live their lives, but cant thanks to right wing propaganda.  They have been made into the monsters under the bed thanks to all the paranoia.  Not all Muslims are terrorists, much like not all christians are.  Yes, there are bad people of both religions who do evil things, but they are a small percentage of the whole.  People like the criminal Alan West only make things worse.  You would think that they would get the idea into their heads that maybe, just maybe, if you stopped killing and trying to really tick them off, maybe even that small percentage of terrorists  would start to fall off.  Yet, there are still atrocities committed against them.  Any wonder why they REALLY dont like us?  Here is a thought..think of everything we do to Muslims, then turn it around.  How would YOU feel if all this happened to YOU?People need to just grow up.

The author fails to mention that the men ALSO stay silent in THEIR prayer room. They ALSO sit with their eyes downcast, and they would ALSO register no reaction to the speaker's comments.

During the Friday sermon, nobody speaks. I can already hear the outraged commenters using the author's oversight as a polemical weapon.

Yeah Pete, it is really sad that there are so many dhimmies(look it up) like yourself who are brainwashed by terrorist related(hamas) organizations such as c.a.i.r. into thinking that all muslims are discriminated against, etc. If you look up the F.B.I. hate crime statistics for the last 5 years, you will see 5 times as many hate related crimes against Jews vs. muslims. There is no such thing as islamaphobia, it is a word made up by the muslims from c.a.i.r. to stoke their propaganda and lies in order to deceive dhimmies like yourself into thinking that the poor muslims are picked on. Have you ever noticed that any time a mosque in the U.S. is "vandalized," it is ALWAYS very superficial to the structure(very little damage) and the "criminals" are never caught...? That's because the muslims do the damage themselves to gain sympathy from the dim witted American sheeple!!You know nothing about what the koran says and the world wide caliphate of islam, do yourself a favor and study it, your life may depend upon it in the near future...

@ Beware of CAIR you are an idiot I'm an American born Muslim and there is no grand Islamic plan to take over this country or the world all we want is to be left alone to worship in peace but clowns like you,Kaufman,Allen West,and the rest of the know nothings want to spread lies,hate,and ignorance

Jesus will save me, what will your koran do for you...? There's no hate in my heart, don't have time for it, I'm a realist in the here and now. The muslim's sharia law is the biggest threat to the U.S. Constitution, there is no place for it whatsoever in our system of law. The problem with muslims is that they do not assimilate into Western society and they never will, their sharia forbids it. One of the co-founders of c.a.i.r., Omar Ahmad, has publicly stated that, "islam isn't in America to be equal to ANY other faiths, but to become dominant. The koran, the muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and islam the ONLY accepted religion on Earth."If you're not muslim and you don't get angry after reading that garbage from Omar, then you're not American... c.a.i.r. is DANGEROUS, they are a clear and present danger to the American way of life, they have to be stopped...!!!
