New and nation

By December 07, 2012


This is a response to a letter the Democrat chose to print from a Richie Mishal on Nov. 21, 2012 titled “My doctor and Islam.” In it, Mishal asks a question that is extremely out of place for an American to pose: “Why is American opinion about Islam based merely on a handful of clichés and distorted notions that are handed down from previous generations?”

The answer of course is — it isn’t. Any American knows what two words new and nation can do to identify America: New means never existing before, and nation means we are a stable, historically developed community of people with a territory, economic life, distinctive culture and language in common. However, it is now eyeball evidence that reveals there is an actual visual rendering of what Islam is; in rural New York, USA, a picture is of the compound of an Islamic community called “Islamberg.” Arm guarded and under Islamic rules, this is something Richie Mishal might visit to aid his case, if he knows the guard and the ways they got there in Hancock, New York in the first place.
