Where Are the Moderate Muslims?

As Hamas continues to launch rockets into Israel, pro-Israel supporters have been holding rallies this week all across the U.S. Some Muslims in this country who support Hamas cannot seem to tolerate this activity, and have been attacking these groups in protest. My question is, are these the so-called moderate Muslims?

One would like to believe that Muslims who emigrate to this country, do so because they love America, and want to share in the values we hold, and have the opportunity to live in a free society.  As we hold our breath waiting for these “moderates” to reveal themselves, we are assured over and over that they are out there. But what we see time and time again is anti-American, anti-Israel behavior and sympathy for terrorists.

Leftists have claimed moral authority over everyone else as the most tolerant segment of the population. I would like to ask anyone on the left, why do you not condemn Islam when they are the most intolerant group in existence? Women have no rights under Islam, and are often stoned or beaten to death for not pleasing their husbands or for dishonoring the family. Gays are not tolerated; Christians are beheaded and burnt alive in church fires; Jews are considered pigs and not even allowed to exist.

Leftists spend exorbitant amounts of time and energy fighting over stupid things like contraception and fantasy wars on women in a country where women have more rights than they’ve ever had in history. I’m calling on the Left to redirect their misguided indignation to the real evil and intolerance in this world, or shut the hell up!

Life is a journey, and you don't always know where you will end up. I am a happily married, Christian woman of 32 years. I home schooled my children for 19 years, then found my way back to school in 2010 to study hotel/restaurant management. I enjoy reading, playing tennis, and politics. I love my country and I am passionate about preserving our liberties and our freedoms. Too many politicians, academics, and media talking heads are lying to us on a daily basis. My mission is to encourage people to become more aware, more involved, and more outraged at how the politicians, academics and media talking heads are destroying this great experiment called, America. My favorite saying is "what goes around, comes around." I may not see the coming around in my lifetime, but I believe it will come, God willing.
