U.S. Muslims Taken Aback

"American Muslim groups responded with uncustomary silence on Tuesday to the news that leaders of a Muslim charity shut down by the federal government had been convicted in a retrial of money laundering, tax fraud and supporting terrorism," says an article in the New York Times.

I love this:
Hina Shamsi, a lawyer with the National Security Project of the A.C.L.U., said, “The Islamic Society of North America does a lot of outreach and interfaith dialogue, and works in cooperation with the F.B.I., and yet, as a result of this stigma, its reputation has been deeply harmed.”

“The irony is obviously that this is the very community whose cooperation the government most needs for effective counterterrorism,” she added.
Yes, of course, everyone knows how helpful it is to have Muslims with intimate ties to terrorists, who are funneling money to terrorists, and who help keep the American non-Muslims confused about Islam, how helpful it is to have those people "helping" the FBI with their counterterrorism efforts! What, is Shamsi on their payroll too?

He's either on the payroll or a blind sheep. I've noticed too many incidences of muslims defending themselves by completely ignoring the facts at hand. A classic diversion tactic.

Jesus told us all the scripture you quoted above are from the Old Testament or Jewish Torah. They no longer applied once Jesus came, "the old is gone the new has come." Christianity is the only religion in the world that tells you to love your enemy and pray for those who persecute and that Jesus said that U.S. The Most important commandment given to us! “But now we have been released from the law, for we died to it and are no longer captive to its power. Now we can serve God, not in the old way of obeying the letter of the law, but in the new way of living in the Spirit.”
