Anti-Muslim Sentiment IV

I am happy to say that the Qur'an burning did not happen! I do want to link to a few articles here though. First, an article via Yahoo!: Fellow Americans' suspicions frustrate US Muslims. Really, how often do you have to explain that Islam is peaceful, and you are American?

Slate had a very good article about the Qur'an burning situation: We didn't start the fire. As the author says "You, your country, and your faith are being held accountable for the deeds of these people." The Islamic world holds US responsible for the Qur'an burners. Doesn't sound fair? Well how about holding THEM responsible for the actions of the 9-11 hijackers? It's the same thing.

I also enjoyed the Slate article: Nobody owns 9/11, and the World Trade Center site is not hallowed ground.
