CAIR’s ‘Islamophobia and anti-Americanism’ conference

“For groups like CAIR, especially after September 11, to name-call and label Americans as racists and bigots because they are simply exercising their right to free speech in criticizing Islam and Muslims is nothing short of asinine.

“Americans constantly hear that we ‘just don’t understand Islam’. I hate to be the one to break it to you, but there’s no need for us to understand Islam. It’s not our responsibility to understand any culture but our own.

“It’s very simple: obey American laws, respect the dress codes, uniforms, rules and regulations of the companies that employ you or the schools in which you’re enrolled, and respect the wishes of your American hosts. Then you won’t have a problem.”

Another sensitive, thoughtful contribution to the discussion of Islam from the folks at Jihad Watch.
