Pain and Prejudice

Reading this story will probably anger you initially, but upon further contemplation the it becomes easier to understand his point of view. I felt this is largely a mechanism to deal with the death of his son who was on the USS Cole when it was attacked. The attackers were Muslim, so he equates attacking Islam/Muslims with avenging his son. This should be a lesson to all of us that our actions as Muslims not only reflect on ourselves and our familiies, but also the larger Muslim community. Also, we are suppose to try to avoid doing things which will cause them to speak recklessly about Allah (SWT), the Prophet (pbuh), and Islam.
