Let us help stop Islamophobic fearmongering

Here in Texas the hatred and ignorant fear of all Muslims is becoming a dangerous tool for intolerant people. Muslims and non Muslims need to join together to better educate America on the contributions our Muslim neighbors are making to America.

Why is this important?

I have been publicly targeted for my support of my Muslim neighbors here in Irving, Texas. The Bureau of Islamic Relations (BAIR) has protested in front of the Islamic Center of Irving, which is right up the street from my home, carrying assault rifles. They also published my name and address on Right Wing sites, calling me a Muslim Sympathizer. As a matter of fact they published the names and addresses of every Irving citizen who spoke to the Irving City Council against a resolution to support Texas House Bill 562, also known as the "AntiSharia Law Bill." It was a useless bill, and was never passed because no Muslims in Texas are trying to establish Sharia Law in Texas. No one would allow them to even if they did try. This Islamophobic Fearmongering has to stop.
