"MUSLIM."
Today's word.

All over GD.
All over the radio.
All over the TV.
All over the Net.

I wonder if a message is being sent? :eyes:

3. Repuke called ES today and talked about racial profiling all "brown"
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 09:07 PM by Mr_Spock
people. It was disgusting and even worse, Ed gave him the extra slack he always allows Repukes - so he seems like he's listening to all. I found the whole call to be absolutely racist.

7. Oh yeah, all Muslims are "brown"

13. I heard him.
What a dick. I was driving and almost wrecked the car swearing at the radio.
Ed should have called him what he was, a racist and an idiot.

16. I was disgusted because all I could think of were my fellow Americans
that I grew up with in the city - Puerto Ricans, Blacks, Mexicans, Cubans, Haitians, Hondurans, Dominicans etc etc etc...

I really would like to smash the faces in of "just another white conservative bigot". They make me sick. :mad:

19. I fly fairly often
with two people, one of whom would certainly be singled out by this man's standards.
This is someone who was born and raised here, and is as good a person and as good an American as you're likely to find. He has every right to be treated as fairly as his blue eyed, blond haired travel companions.
I could have spit, I was so mad. And I rarely spit.

21. Geez, I also forgot about my coworkers. Philippino, Malasian, Vietnamese
Korean, Indian, Pakistani etc etc etc...

There are an AWFUL LOT of brown skinned people in this world. I am going to write Ed a letter to let him know how much he missed the boat by not ripping that RW white male bigot (redundant, I know) a new ass hole. I am furious that I had to listen to that crap on liberal radio. Ed's gonna get his ass chewed by me and he does not like it when I do that to him as I know how to dig in deep. He will likely mention my email tomorrow as he usually "feels" my emails more than the most.

4. Ah yes,
Muslim. A follower of Islam. A follower of Peace. One who wishes to find peace within himself, who wishes to tame the ego, to become one with That Which is All.

I could see where that could make some feel threatened. Too bad they are asleep. Perhaps, when they are beginning to stir when dawn approaches, they will wake up.

20. My favorite 'religion' is Sufism, the 'mystical' branch of Islam. I was
raised Presbyterian/Protestant and have studied all of the various religions, and currently am enamored by Sufism. It's ironic that right now I'm listening to Bill Moyers interviewing Pema Chodnon (?), a former Catholic who is now a Buddhist nun, discussing the dissolution of the ego and the underlying Unity and Oneness of all life that is realized when you wake up. If the world would just listen to the Mystics of all religious faiths, they would realize that they all say the same thing and speak the same truth.

23. Oh yes
I know that the world is waking up, as there seem to be more and more people who are realizing this. I'm happy that you are studying the Path of the Heart. My teacher's teacher's website has some good links to websites, if you'd care to look at it:

Love, love, and only love,

24. Thank you Ayesha! I will check it out. The link that I use currently is
Wahiduddin's Web http://www.wahiduddin.net/index.html

It is a great site, and contains almost all of H.I Kahn's works, which I so enjoy!

Love, Love and only Love back at you!
Sara

9. Muslim: Brother Jamal, my rabbi's friend
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 09:16 PM by AlienGirl

The guy in the middle in the picture is Brother Jamal. His "Mullah stories" are entertaining and wise.

Sometimes the way to destroy a negative association is to create a positive one instead.

14. Funny - I thought the word was Islamic, which, of course, is
absolutely incorrect when discussing PEOPLE of the Muslim faith.

15. Not really...
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 09:56 PM by Spider Jerusalem
except that religion (generally in its extremist, fundamentalist form) is the one common characteristic found among a disparate population of radicalised anti-Western fighters who hail from Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and so on. Most of these are Salafi or Wahhabi, some are Shi'a, but these aren't distinctions that most Westerners are going to make every time; they're all as much Muslims as a liberal Sufi mystic or a moderate Sunni imam, just as Pentecostals and Southern Baptists are as much Christians as Episcopalians or Catholics.

If they claim act in the name of god and religion, it is because they have been misled by men who have perverted their religion to their own ends, and declared it a sacred duty and obligation to kill in the name of god...but there's nothing especially new in this; look at the Crusades, or the Inquisition, or the Counter-Reformation, or the persecution of Catholics in Protestant Europe, or the persecution of Jews everywhere, for countless examples from Western history.

(And I for one don't have a negative image of Muslims; my best and oldest friend is a Sufi.)

22. I understand.
In many istances Muslim is used in place of nationality these days. There is a tinge of religiosity in foreign affairs, conflicts and news clips that is very disturbiing.
