My point in my last blog was not at all to glorify all Muslims, so telling me to read news articles about Muslims doing bad things is not a counter argument.
There are indeed bad Muslims....but there are also bad Christians, bad Jews, bad Hindus, bad athiests, bad aborigenies, bad all sorts of people.
Discriminating against a group of people based on a minority is NEVER a good idea. This goes for Muslims now in the post-9/11 world.
But it also goes for all other groups of people. For example, Muslims should not hate all Jews and demonize all Jews because some Jews hurt them.
Blacks should not hate all Christians because the KKK did horrible things to them.
Whites in America should not hate all blacks because of bad experiences with a few gangs.
You get my point?
Chances are that the Ground Zero Mosque would in fact be for American Muslims a place of peace and hope, not of continuted triumph over the western infidels.
