It's even more telling that Palestine is seeking statehood peacefully- not by force of arms, not by economic warfare- and Israel and the US just can't stand it.

While the women are upstairs all us men- swarthy and thickly bearded and turbaned, every one- are sitting in the basement listening to Radio Tehran and chanting 'Allahu Akbar' while smoking a hookah and sharpening our beheading knives and cleaning our Kalashnikovs and plotting the overthrow of the Western World. We do this EVERY NIGHT until the wee hours of the morning when we...
mow our lawns, wash our cars, do laundry, do our prayers- oh, wait I said all that before. Right, like we've got time to sit around plotting death and destruction. Those Girl Scout cookies don't sell themselves, you know.
The truth is, and most if not all of you here know this, 99.99% of Muslims- and even more so in the US- are just.like.you. We have the same dreams and aspirations, for the most part, and almost never- except in the very rare celebrated incidents- do those dreams and aspirations involve harming anyone or anything. I know the men at my mosque pretty well, and I can say with confidence that about the only thing they could terrorize would be a free salad bar.
As a white American male- and a Muslim- I have to laugh at the anti-Muslim hysteria sometimes, I really do. If we were a fraction as vicious and crafty as people thought we were, do you really think the Middle East would be in the shape it's in? Really? The fact is, Muslims in America are roughly where the blacks were in the opening or ending stages of the Civil Rights era- it's either not as bad now as it's going to get, or the worst is over and we're gaining acceptance. Every group, ethnic or religious, has had the same rite of passage- demonization followed by acceptance and integration- and Muslims and Islam is proving to be no different in America.

I wonder how Joe Sixpack would react if he knew the US budget for 2013 included 210 billion dollars to pay for Israel's Iron Dome System when Israel itself was providing only 1 or 2 million itself, and that only in the testing stages.
