McCain supporters defend Islam

posted by Aziz Poonawalla

At a McCain rally in northern Virginia, a man was handing out bumper stickers equating Obama with Communism and radical Islam, and preaching about the dangers of Islam. McCain supporters, including a conservative Christian and several muslims, confront the bigot:

Note that a McCain campaign official also makes an appearance and reiterates that McCain’s supporters hail from all religions and that this man’s message is in no way representative of John McCain.

The man and his sidekick eventually give up and leave, to cheers and applause by the McCain supporters present. I have to say, that the people in this video standing up for McCain and against bigotry are real Americans in every sense of the word.

Of course this was northern Virginia, which according to Governor Palin’s own spokesperson, is “not the real Virginia” where true pro-America Americans reside. As much as the McCain campaign disgusts me at times, it’s important to remember and emphasize that McCain’s supporters are as genuine Americans as anyone else, apart from the few bad apples who spoil the image. There’s a lot less that divides us than the domestic radicals, or the campaign spin doctors, would have us believe.

A lot of my friends who aren't into football have remarked upon my newfound interest in football as being somewhat out-of-character (true, at first glance, but i'll address that later) and also critiqued the sport for all its attendant social problems. Of those, the two main ones are domestic abuse

13 years after 9-11
I honestly don't have much left to say that I have not said already. But it is worth at least remarking on this, the anniversary of the attacks, that the global challenges facing the world today have almost nothing to do with terrorism or Islamic fanaticism. Yes, we have threats like ISIS to grapple

Saudis propose to relocate the Prophet's (saw) tomb from Masjid al-Nabawi
The above photo of the Mecca clock tower, or as I like to call it, "Big Bin", was during my hajj a few years ago. It is part of my general observations of the "Meccahattan"-ization of the holiest place in Islam, the way that the Saudi religious authorities are utterly obliterating the historical wea
