Noted Thanks Cal... This is a brilliant post! It is really 'one in the eye' for all those Muslimophobes! it is about time that more positive things are written and published about Muslim people, so that we can see them for the gentle, sincere and loyal people that so many of them are! On care 2 we have to try our best to stamp out all bigotry and hatred towards Muslim people and spread unity and love amongst all people.

There are polls for everything these days but polls are not reliable. I don't doubt any religious group loyalty, so my comment has nothing to do with muslims nor any other religious group, just that I never trust polls nor questionnaires, whatever the info they're giving. The words used to ask the questions, the order the questions are being asked, the mood of people when they answered, etc. make polls unreliable and quite useless.

Muslims want the same thing anyone else wants--security for their children and hope for the future. Sure, there are radicals among them--as there are radial "christians", etc. Radicals do not make the mainstream. The USA was created as a sanctuary for those trying to escape such extremism. The system is not perfect but it still offers hope--it is an ideal we strive to live up to, whatever our religions and belief systems. USA is the "great melting pot"---not without friction but a place with potential for all peoples to get along and find a common ground.
THIS is what those coming here hope to find.

There is no doubt that Muslims round the world have gained censure because of their dogmatic stand against any reforms in their life styles. Were they to conform and do in Rome as the Romans do there would be no problem for them. Most normal people believe in the policy of live and let live. Unfortunately in most cases , usually because of a lack of education, Muslims particularly the women, life according to the Sharia laws and this is upsetting for the communities within which they live. No doubt there are many if not most who are law abiding citizens, but the common perception is of distrust because of the radicals within. It's good that a poll has thrown up such an aspect. Maybe if the normal, rational Muslims were to go on the rampage against the rebels it will benefit the community hugely !!

"We send our sincerest wishes to Muslims in America and around the world for health, prosperity, and happiness during Ramadan and throughout the coming year. All the world continues to benefit from this faith and its achievements. Ramadan and the upcoming holiday season are a good time for people of different faiths to learn more about each other. And the more we learn, the more we find that many commitments are broadly shared. We share a commitment to family, to protect and love our children. We share a belief in God's justice, and man's moral responsibility. And we share the same hope for a future of peace. We have much in common and much to learn from one another."
