    I am a member of MAS

    Which is the largest Muslim American organization in the United States.

    Here is the e-mail that was sent out to all of our members this morning.

    > The Muslim American Society welcomes the news of the demise of Osama bin Laden. The intentional killing of civilians for political ends is terrorism, and this has been the mode of operation of Al Qaeda as directed by Osama bin Laden. We pray that this development leads to a reduction in radical extremism in the world, and that fewer fall victim to it. Indeed fighting against acts of terror, radical extremism, and its root causes must continue to be part of our nation’s agenda. Finally, we pray that bin Laden’s demise brings some solace to the thousands of families, Muslims and non-Muslims, who have been victimized by Al Qaeda’s crimes.

    Very sensible.

    Islamic terrorists have killed far more Moslems than anybody else.

    Thanks for the post. The reality that Muslims aren't terrorists isn't new, but it still hasn't made it's way into public consciousness. Sometimes it seems that pushing it there is like paddling a canoe up a waterfall.

    Like a politician trying to convince a American veteran that the invasion from Mexico is a good thing.

    This from Dearborn.....

    I don't doubt that there will still be assholes out there among the Muslim community that are infuriated about OBL's demise, just as I am sure there will be assholes who still continue to see all Muslims as his supporters, but hopefully both are a tiny and increasingly insignificant minority.

    Osama Bin Laden, upper body injury, out indefinitely. Al Quaeda placed him on the LTIR.

    Muslims are not more radical than say red necks. We paint with a broad brush when we are condemning segments of society depending on our own beliefs. The number of bad people in the world is not specific to race, religion or ethnicity. Education and finances do not guarantee that we are dealing with people we consider good. AH's run the gamut, I have not problem with Bin Laden being killed, he asked for it.

    Why do they only send this out to "members?"

    Why doesn't the MAS get out in the PUBLIC and make these comments.

    Might help squelch some hate...

    Just sayin'

    Really. How many rednecks have committed anti-American acts of terrorism over the last couple years compared to Muslims?

    I've got a crisp $100 bill that says all the radio talking heads are going to be asking why the Muslims are sooooo silent within the next 48 hours. It seems they think there should be banners flying in front of mosques and each Muslim should repeat this letter each day like the pledge of allegience.
