The current hate against American Muslims is simply the latest in what has happened in American history for over two hundred years. There is always some group singled out to be the bad guys responsible for any and all crimes in the land. So, what now for members of the Muslim community in America?
1. Make certain that every Muslim who is qualified to vote, VOTES.
2. American Muslims should begin joining political parties and work their way into positions of responsibility.
3. American Muslims this fall should be volunteering to work for the election of Hillary Clinton
4. American Muslims this fall should be actively supporting Democratic candidates for Congress, especially the Senate. Give your time and whatever you can spare financially.
5. Organize Political Action groups to lobby for Muslim rights in this country.
6. Make certain that teenage Muslim boys and girls are politically knowledgeable.
7. Get Muslim youth active in this political campaign. Get them to experience the thrill of seeing their ideas become law.
8. Make certain your mosque is led by a politically active imam.
9.Establsih outreach programs with Christian and Jewish groups. Get your children into these efforts.
Don’t ever feel sorry. Just remember Catholics, Jews, Hispanics, Italians and God knows how many others experienced prejudice and hatred.
