Frustrated Muslims Coming to an AP Story Near You

From this piece off the wire:

Nine years of denouncing terrorism, of praying side-by-side with Jews and Christians, of insisting “I’m American, too.” None of it could stop a season of hate against Muslims that made for an especially fraught Sept. 11. Now, Muslims are asking why their efforts to be accepted in the United States have been so easily thwarted.

How has this “season of hate” resulted in the deaths of any Muslims here in the United States? Oh, it hasn’t? I see. It would appear that the haters need some training. After all, hate against the United States by the coreligionists of these same Muslims have resulted in the deaths of thousands of Muslims and non-Muslims.

No, what we get are generic denunciations of terrorism, while ensuring that Israel is included in the list of terrorists. We have Muslims willing to engage in interfaith prayer meetings in the western world while completely unwilling to even permit the construction of a new synagogue or church in Muslim majority countries in the Middle east. We get people who have come over here and become Americans by going through a naturalization process and then going on to kill or attempt to kill their fellow citizens by shooting up an Army base or putting a car bomb in Times square.

Unfortunately, American Muslims seem to forget that the 9/11 attacks upon the US, the 3/11 attacks in Spain, and the Hamas rocket attacks against Israel (among many others) were acts of terrorism which are entirely and completely caused by Muslims.

It may well be that many American Muslims are frustrated. I can say without equivocation that I certainly am.

    1. CAH,

      That’s a brief question that would require a book to answer properly. Nonetheless, I’ll do what I can in a few words.

      Humanity is a group to which we belong–through no choice of our own. Therefore, the parallel does not hold up. Muslims choose their religion (yes, cultural coercion doesn’t leave much room for choice, but you know what I mean).

      Your appeal to the good works is like saying that there is a person who did everything right, except he murdered one person. Should we deem the rest of this human’s good works as unworthy of consideration? Well, in light of the murder, pretty much.
