Coyote Breath BS: U.S. Sergeant Kills One, Wounds 15 (204* d) RE: BS: Muslim Sergeant Kills One, Wounds 15 24 Mar 03

The soldier, who changed his name from Michael Kools to Asan Akbar when he converted to Islam, is said to have declared that he "fragged" the 16 men (in three seperate tents, using three grenades) because he didn't want to kill fellow Muslims.

Feel what you feel and believe what you wish to believe but is it really unreasonable for the American public, especially Christians and Jews, to be fearful of Muslims?

Muslims seem to be afraid of Americans. Is THAT unreasonable?

So if Muslims focus their anger on us, and especially if that focus is based on THEIR religious perspective, is THAT unreasonable?

Don't confuse how people react, especially on an emotional level, with a turn to a pogrom mentality. When Americans have the chance to think calmly about events they usually behave reasonably and humanely. In the "heat" of events like the fragging deaths in Kuwait or 9/11 people will say things that calm reflection would have at least edited if not negated.
