‘Is This America?’

I know our readers can get national opinion columns elsewhere on the web, from the sources and other aggregators, but I feel compelled to bring some of the ones that make a lot of sense to me to our site for easy access. Also, any day now this growing controversy will make a local appearance. It’s already making an impact on people in our community even if the participants are elsewhere. Here’s Nicholas D. Kristof in today’s NYTimes writing about the heated discussion and behavior related to Muslims and Islam in the US. Read the column here, and get the NYT if you appreciate the work.

There’s a related article online at the NYT that describes how Muslims and Islam were part of daily life in the WTC twin towers. There was a Muslim prayer room on site. Read the article by Samuel G. Freedman in the On Religion section here.
