To quote from an email I have received, “America has always been a melting pot, but in the post-9/11 world the environment can be downright hostile. Recent mosque protests and congressional hearings on American Muslims are all unfortunate examples of a rising tide of fear. This climate of suspicion towards our fellow Americans compromises the great values that our country was founded upon.”
The words above are chillingly true. Too many Americans equate Islam with terror. This feeling is perpetuated by a fear of Islam. Take the Quran out of the element of Islam and just look at a Muslim as a person…as an individual. Try to put aside any initial fear or sense of revulsion to a Muslim and just take that chance to get to know him or her as a real person. Myfellowamerican website has done exactly that. I encourage American Bedu readers to view the video teaser on the website and take the time to watch other videos or read some of the stories contributed by viewers.
In fact, I hope that after viewing the websiter you’ll come back and share your thoughts and comments!
