I am starting a series to take on the the Right wing Republicans… There are many things in this article that will become talking points to moderate Americans who want to fight back the right wingers attacking Muslims, Hindus, Jews and others, there is short poem written as an example tomake Texans, New Yorkers and Californians angry, it is to make the point about false accusations against Muslims.

There are four clear points communicated in this article and God willing more to come through 2012 Elections. I am going on a Drive America Tour this fall talking about building a cohesive America. If you can arrange with your local Democrats and Republicans party to speak, I will be happy to do that.

As a disclosure, I am a moderate Republican and there are plenty of us, but most of them are gutless like most Muslims are and are afraid to speak up. I will fight with them to bring moderates to the front, you are right, I may not succeed but will make  the points is crucial to activate the sleeping Moderate Americans to counter the right wing propaganda.   

I am writing a series and will be talking on American Politics, if you wish to add your comment to my articles to be published in Huffington Post, Washington Post, OpEd News, New York Times and other papers. I will be happy to include, please let me know if you wish to contribute a sentence or a paragraph to it, you must be willing to stand up for the attacks from right wing Muslims and right wing Christians. It is time now. Let’s us be the catalysts for a safe, secure America.

Let us act now as participants, rather than known protestors.

Please feel free to write your comment at the article to create momentum and not allow me to stand alone.


Is there a Republican out there running for the presidency who has the guts to say one word against Jews, Israel or African Americans and get away with it? Name one who got away, not one! Muslims can learn from this.
It is pathetic that the right wingers have to resort to hate in pursuit of power, and it is a greater shame on those few who are buying into their agenda. We need jobs and not hateful propaganda. Hating Muslims as group does not fill one’s belly or prevent my small business from going down the tube. Wake up America.

I am proud of the Jewish and African American contributions in building a pluralistic America. As a Muslim I stand with the Jews and urge Muslims and others to follow their model. I stood with them at the Holocaust Museum, Texas Jewish Post, Akiba Academy and other places when Fred Phelps was demonstrating hate in those places; I am pleased to have commenced a program to reflect on Holocaust and Genocides to bring education to non-Jewish Americans, I have condemned Ahmedinejad of Iran for denying Holocaust, there is a good history of building cohesive societies.
I have stood up for Hindus, Christians, Baha’is, Wicca, Native Americans, Shia, Sunni, Ahmadiyya, Sikhs, Zoroastrians, Buddhist, Gays and Lesbians and others. I am not standing up for them; I am standing up for every American’s right to be American. Who the hell is anyone to question any one’s right?

Being free from prejudice gives me the strength and the audacity to stand up for others. I have equally condemned the bad acts of those among Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Christians and others.
Now, I ask you to stand up with me to bring a positive change in America. Ultimately if we stand up for each other, everyone will be safe and we can focus on prosperity.
First they came for Native Americans,

thank God, though late enough Americans stood up for them;

Then they came for Jews,
thank God, enough Americans stood up for them;
Then they came for Catholics,
thank God, enough Americans stood up for them;
They were after the African Americans,
thank God, enough Americans stood up for them;
Then they came for Mormons,
thank God enough Americans stood up for them;
They have been after GLBT,
thank God, support momentum is gathering for them;
Now they are coming for Muslims,
lets pray that enough Americans will stand up for them;
Who is coming after Muslims?

Unfortunately some of them are from those who have suffered in the past, the office seekers include a Catholic or a former Catholic, African American, Mormon and others. What a betrayal to their heritage!

It reminds me of Holocaust; when Jewish men and women were sent to the ovens, the world looked on and their friends did not do a thing either. How difficult it must have been for them to see the whole humanity betray them and how lonely they must have felt? I have always admired those souls, they were the real heroes to walk to it so the world can be a better place, so people can wake up and say never again.

The following statements may make you angry;

“I don’t trust anyone from Dallas, they are Murderers!
They murdered 226 people in 2009.
“No one should take their daughter or wife to New York.
The New Yorkers raped 2586 women in 2009.
“The Californians are reckless drivers,
the maniacs had16 million tickets in 2007″

You get the point about Muslims.

This is the favorite method of bigots to take a few factoids and malign the whole community.
I do not think Gingrich, Cain and the Right wing Republican would feel ashamed for their reckless speeches in demeaning and criticizing fellow Americans.

It is up to decent Americans to shame them in realizing that the jig is up and we refuse to be duped by their bigotry. We would like to know what they would do to create jobs and fix the economy for all Americans including Muslims.

I urge Muslims to follow the Jewish Model, where their vote counts and the politicians rightfully care about them for their votes. It is embarrassing that Muslims stay out of the election process. I have not seen any one from the self proclaimed main stream Sunni Muslims in Carrollton election process. Why should any politician give a damn about them? Stop being cry babies and start participating in electing the right candidates.

Whether Muslims participate or not, we have to build a cohesive America where our Children and Grand Children can live without apprehension of the other.
