in reply to OT - A Request for Tolerance

Indeed.

A bullet through a window. Firebombs. Death threats. These acts have been perpetrated by a tiny fraction of both US and Canadian citizens against our own Arab/muslim communities (and against those misidentified as such). These acts are shameful, cowardly, terrorist acts. These acts spread fear among our citizens, causing parents to keep their children home from school, causing children to fear expressing their faith, denying many the simple solace of gathering together to pray.

How terribly terribly sad that so many of our own citizens have their shock and horror and fear and pain compounded by this additional threat. How alone and isolated they must feel. We must not stand by and hope that things settle down. We must stand up for our fellow citizens and stand beside them. We must all be ever vigilant against the fear and hatred that comes from within as well as without.
