A Brown, Bearded Muslim American Gives Thanks to Gap on Thanksgiving I am thankful for this America where the chain of solidarity against hate is becoming stronger, by the day, it seems, by growing new links. What has been the Sikh and Muslim communities' fight for years was joined by Gap and CNN. What had been a lament in temples and at dinner tables for years made it to social and mainstream media on the eve of Thanksgiving.

CNN: Don't Link the Terror Alert to the 'Night of Power.' The story was largely accurate -- prompted by fears of a terrorist attack, in an unprecedented move on Sunday, the U.S. closed 21 embassies across the Middle East and North Africa. Add a strategically implanted -- and inaccurate -- analysis by CNN's Peter Bergen, who alleged that Sunday was the "night of destiny", making it an auspicious occasion for al Qaeda extremists to die. This is utterly false.

Gay Marriage and the Shifting Sands of Time Magazine Covers This week's dual-covers of the Time, flaunting two men and two women kissing with a headline "Gay Marriage Already Won." The Time is challenging an institution that has time on its side; well over two thousand years and counting. On the contrary, Time's verdict, particularly around social issues, inverts well within a lifetime.

Blasphemy Laws and Pakistan: Whose Islam Is It Anyway? Pakistan doesn't practice Islam; it practices pandering. By making arrests and offering compensations it panders to the West, and by keeping blasphemy laws on the books it panders to the rest.

If Prophet Muhammad Had His Way, There Would Be No Guantanamo Bay Even a suggestion of equal benefits for prisoners of war is now either a joke, according to The Duffle Blog, or an affront, according to Sen. McConnell. But in Islam, the idea of equal benefits for the prisoners of war is not a joke -- it's a reality and a legacy. If Muhammad had his way, there would be no Guantanamo Bay.

Muslim Flu Shots? Faith leaders must unite to combat a virus which follows a strict non-discrimination policy. Thus, I will continue to reach out to soup kitchens, churches, and synagogues only as a part of my civic duty.

Why (and How) Should Muslim Americans 'Celebrate' Christmas? Muslims Americans: Go be a part of the joy of the season. But as you send your children to embrace the garbage collectors and adopt neglected families, remind them that we don't celebrate Christmas seeking worldly gain or social acceptance. "We feed you for Allah's pleasure only. We desire no reward nor thanks" (Quran 76:10).

Sandy Hook Elementary: Where Scar Killed Simba Pride Land is reeling and the little zebras, monkeys and elephants are looking up to the lions. The lions of NRA -- who should support the ban on automatic assault rifles and high-count magazines instead of touting for more guns; the lions of video game industry -- who should stop selling violent video games to minors.

Gaza is Longing for an Arab-Israeli Spring That's why I long for an Arab-Israeli Spring. I long to see the streets of Gaza and Tel Aviv pouring with Palestinian and Israeli youth leaders, who value the safety of their grandchildren more than the legacy of their grandfathers.

Don't Throw Acid on Islam's Face More than 80 percent of all acid attacks are committed against women. Granted, in some cases women have also committed these crimes against other men and/or women, but majority of them were retaliatory. Therefore, men are the common denominator -- not Islam.

Saving the Next Trayvon: "Second Chance to Shoot First" or "Church's Chance to Uproot Curse?" Why a nation with the Bill of Rights, 13th 14th and 15th Amendments, Civil Rights Act, anti-Discrimination Act, Affirmative Action, Anti-hate Laws, and a whole host of anti-discrimination policies would continue to struggle with race relations? In addition to "Second Chance on Shoot First" my America yearns for a white pastor to launch a "Church's Chance to Uproot Curse" campaign.

Islamic Reasons Why the Syrian President Must Go My generation remains proud of Islam -- the faith, and we remain proud of millions of hardworking Muslims -- the followers. But we are ashamed of these autocrats. And I say to them: Forget the Arab spring. Instead brace for revolts in every region, in every season. For your conduct brings us all shame.

Muhammad Never Tortured Prisoners of War Prophet Muhammad, instead of allowing torture, practiced equal rights for the prisoners of the war 1400 years ago. This article provides data to support that notion.
