Muslims were cowed in fear during the Bush dictatorship, it's nice to see them speaking out finally as sunshine returns to the US after eight years of Cheneyism. But a warning for you, my Muslim friend, the American ideal of religious freedom is that we all get to make fun of other religions. Myself, I find Christianity amusing, and Islam a faith in need of some serious cultural reform in order for it to exist in the modern world of social equality. If you want to post at Benz World, be prepared to be slimed by an eclectic collection of atheists, agnostics, right-wing wack jobs and people who are simply prejudical racists. Sallaam al Lakim, you Jew hating nut.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
