American-Muslim Catch-22

American Muslims are learning that in post-9/11 America, they must become more involved at every level of the country’s political process, and not least so that there’s always someone to say “So what if he’s Muslim?” whenever Obama is “smeared.” >>>>>

Unlike the article below about joining the Democrats’ party, this sister seems to have a deeper understanding of the message should carry here.  In the end, as she heads to the polls with her mother, she knows her responsibility is with God first, then civic duty is second.

One Response to American-Muslim Catch-22

  1. “Welcome to the Catch-22 of American Muslim life — you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t.”

    I often feel this way too.

    Since were damned either way, we might as well get involved.

    If we sit back and lay low Islamophobes will continue to spew their hateful lies about Islam and Muslims.

    It seems to me that the balance of information available to the average person is titling in favor of Islamophobes. This has to be checked and reversed.

    Thank you for sharing this article.
