How long are we expected to nurture a viper in our bosom merely because the threat pretends to a religion and an oppressed minority. Either Muslims are a fragile delicate flower or they are 1.6 Billion strong. Either they are a poor people in need of help or sitting on top of the bulk of the worlds 2nd most important strategic resource. It cannot be both. And Islamic schools and mosques are neither institutions of growing one’s value to society nor for spiritual piety. They are beachheads. They need to be seen and treated as such.
