Many have heard of the news regarding the Danish Cartoons that had the Prophet Muhammad humiliated beyond context of his significance to his followers. He is the Supreme Being to Muslims from around the world and even stems from the tree of Abraham who during the same time existed besides each other as Christianity was becoming prevalent and was heavily persecuted by the Romans. How would you feel if your faith was attacked in the same manner? As we all know, many Muslims have felt outcast form the events in history that highlights their handiwork in what has become a standardized form they are to take their whole lives. In the United States, many people say that the borders of discrimination have long disappeared but there is discrimination at work in each and every turn. Ask any Chinese, Jewish, Muslim American and they will all tell you the story of their being discriminated against on the basis of their color and religion. A recent TV show I came to watch had an Investigative TV Crew stage a scene where there was a young Muslim woman who was out to purchase a loaf of bread from a bakery with the clerk refusing to serve her due to her religion (the clerk was part of the act), and sadly many people failed to uphold the right of that said woman who was an actual Muslim but was born and raised in the United States. One man drew fire from the clerk but not to defend the young lady but to defend himself by asking if the clerk has heard any news of any Palestinian or Jews (which he happened to be) blowing up anything recently which can cause him not getting his loaf. One White Supremist even praised the attitude of the clerk for refusing to sell to the young Muslim lady. He cursed at the camera crew and the host (who happened to be of some other race) saying they were not Americans and that they deserve hell.
