    A Muslim soldier goes on a killing spree and the NY Times wants to start pinning Medals of Honor on the rest of them.

    Lame.

    ok, i see your point.

    the whole article is about muslims in the military, then they switch it to arab-americans in the last paragraph to be able to include the MOH recipient.

    not very good reporting there.

    it's pretty crazy to assume that Arabs would be more prone to commit terrorism based on race or ethnicity. Which means that article does nothing at all to help Arabs in the military.

    Steve Jobs, Ralph Nader, Casey Kasem are all arabs ethnically and clearly behave like any other American caucasian. it's the Islam that's the problem. it's the Islam.
