Latinos are the fastest growing ethnic group in America.

"満作(まんさく)" By TANAKA Juuyoh


FB6DTKGP2ZEK My name is Hans Hass. I’m a member of the Sufi Muslim community center in Sidney Center that has been in the news lately. Most likely some of you have seen some things in the news or on T.V. If you haven’t, you can click on the links below. Unfortunately, Sidney has gotten a lot of negative publicity nationally from this, and it seems to be going international. None of us wanted this to become such a big deal. I am writing to you as businesspeople in Sidney to ask for your help in laying this matter to rest. (H. Hass, Osmanli Naks’i-bendi Dergahi)

رمضــان كريـم

"رمضــان كريـم" (Ramazan Kerim) By ThaRainbow. / A♥

Muslims believe the Qur’an is unique and the sole example of its kind. We believe the Qur’an is eternal and a miracle of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (may Peace and Blessings be upon him, his family and his Companions). We believe that all people, all nations and all believers have been endowed with the responsibility to have faith in it and that it will be relevant until the Last Day. And no other Divine Book will come afterward.

The New York Times: Message To Muslims – “I’m Sorry”

September 21, 2010 § Leave a comment

"Hydrangea Revisited" by John

“I hereby apologize to Muslims for the wave of bigotry and simple nuttiness that has lately been directed at you. The venom on the airwaves, equating Muslims with terrorists, should embarrass us more than you. Muslims are one of the last minorities in the United States that it is still possible to demean openly, and I apologize for the slurs.” (Kristof, The New York Times)
