Dear USMB: The head of CAIR in Houston asked me for specific examples of what American Muslims are doing (besides just being Muslim) that are causing threats to people. "Again, I agree but please give me examples of what American Muslims are doing that is threatening or imposing other than being Muslim?." This is a SEPARATE issue from what nonMuslims are SAYING, this is asking for what Muslims are DOING in AMERICA not other countries. I did provide an example of an American Muslim on USMB here SAYING he supported more reforms adopted in American law that are in keeping with his standards he holds very highly. Can you give me specific examples of what American Muslims are DOING that adds to the negative perception of fear and threat of imposition. I have seen people cite cases of "honor killings" (which could be compared to criminal violence and murder by crazed parents who kill or mutilate their babies trying to "exorcise them of demons" which can be blamed on radical fundamental religion WITHOUT trying to shut down Christianity). I am also hearing contested conflicting reports about what is REALLY going on with the Shariah scare in Tennessee I think? Are there any other examples? Can you send links to articles or other sources about American Muslims? Thanks in advance! Yours truly, Emily P.S. If you have personal experiences or accounts you prefer not to post online, please email me at emilynghiem at hotmail or at yahoo. I can relay the example in general terms without using names, and delete your msg when I am done if it is confidential. Thank you!
