Spreading lies about Muslims has no limits

Sheila Musaji at The American Muslim (TAM) posted a wonderful piece entitled “Haiti and the “Heartless” Muslims?” where she exposes lies that seem to have no limits as it relates to Muslims and our Haitian Relief efforts.  If there were ever a time to stay away from grinding the proverbial religious/ideological axe it should be in the wake of the Human tragedy in Haiti.  However, as Sheila points out, some media outlets in Israel couldn’t help but take a swipe at Muslims for supposedly not being concerned with helping majority Christian Haiti. This criticism would be worth ten cent if it were true, but as pointed out in the article by Sheila, Muslims including this Muslim have been donating, serving, raising funds, and helping in a myriad of ways to aid the Haitian people since day one.  The sad part is that what many don’t realize is that these type of lies and attacks are often spread about Muslims many such as this one in very blatant ways as the assumption by those who spread them is that their readers of such folly are too stupid to do the research or fact check any of the author’s claims.  I truly believe that bashing Muslims and Islam is profitable and some of the books, media, etc. is beyond laughable if seriously examined.  This is just another example of the ridiculous lengths some are willing to go to insult Muslims and spread malicious lies.  A sincere thanks and appreciation to Sheila for ensuring the record is set straight.  By the way, I posted on facebook 2 weeks ago that CNN even profiled the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) center of Sterling, VA where Imam Magid gave a Kutbah (sermon) at Friday prayers urging Muslims to respond with charity as this is a tragedy for all humanity.  I guess Israeli media doesn’t have access to CNN, Google, etc.
