Understatement of the Week

"We do feel that the coupling of religion and terror in terminology does provide a negative image of the Muslim-American community," said Aliya Latif of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

"Terminology"?

What about action?

Like in Riverdale?


P.S. Official CAIR release.

"Islamophobia" is a term.
Atrocities that Israel has commited and continue commiting in Gaza are actions.

Look at the mirror before you point finger and place blame.

Atrocities....
If someone shot at your son would you not retaliate with all your might, even if he missed?
You cannot attack homes and schools in Israel and then claim atrocities when Hamas fighters hide near schools and civilians.

Since the conflict started, at least 10 times more Palestinians have been killed than Israelis. I am not blaming Israel solely, only saying that Israel has been not less of a terrorist.

"If someone shot at your son would you not retaliate with all your might, even if he missed?"

That's one way which unfortunately only propagates violence further, or you choose to forgive them and move on to creating peace and that way retaining your moral authority.

It's all about everyday choices that Israelis and Palestinians make.
Blaming Muslims, Arabs, Hamas doesn't do anything more than satisfies Mr. Medad's ego.
