Islamiphobia is on the rise in the West. The latest controversy is the opposition of construction of a mosque in the city of Marseilles, France–the most “Islamic city” in France. The opposition in France is led by the far right political party of Jean Marie Lepen. While the opposition of a mosque near ground zero is […]
The confrontation between supporters of the Islamic center near ground zero and opponents was unnecessary. While anybody has a right to express his opinion, it should not be an opportunity to spread Islamophobic sentiment. We all agree that Islam is not a synonym for terrorism, but Islam has been hijacked by Islamist extremists to terrorize the West. […]
Assassination attempt or Western fantasy? The latest about a grenade thrown at Ahmadinejad‘s convoy has gone through the media like a brush fire.

Shifting gears from health care reform to job creation shows that the administration is paying attention to the severity of the recession on main street. At his first State of the Union address, the President has shown his leadership. I am still very skeptical about how he’s going to build a bipartisan coalition to rebuild the […]
