100. Yeah look at Muslims raised in Western countries
"67% of U.S. Muslims have a college degree, versus 44% of the general population. The U.S. average income is $42,000; 66% of U.S. Muslims earn over $50,000 and 26% over $100,000, according to Allied Media Corp. "
-- Adweek 4.30.07

U.S. Muslims tend to be more educated, and earn more money than the average American. They also tend to be exemplary American's. You imply that a Muslim American is incapable of being a good American. The Wall Street Journal would disagree with you.

"21% of Muslim Americans intermarry, according to the 2001 Religious Identification Survey of the City University of New York--close to the national rate of 22% of Americans who marry outside their religion. And because 64% of Muslim Americans are foreign born, there is reason to expect that figure to grow among second and third generations."

Saying that the Taliban or Jangaweed and the Imam's who cover them are true reprsentatives of Islam, or that you should judge a tree by the fruit it bears is incredibly ignorant and single focused. These regimes use lies and highly incorrect treatments of religious texts to acrue them personal power. Impling that Muslim American's are basically no different is rude, insulting, and whatver the term for racist is that applies to hating and disparaging an entire group of people, even if that group isn't a 'race' per se.
