Re: FYI - Some facts - found the video - MM and Ellie
We too have a Muslim friend, a Pakistani. Close enough to be invited to two of the three wedding receptions of his daughter. You couldn't ask for a nicer person. He is devout in his religion but he and his family are as Americanized as one could ask for. I'm sure that there are many like him who blend their faith into the differences here as seamlessly as possible.
Then there are the more recent arrivals who have no inclination to adapt into our society but would have us adapt into theirs. The second generation isn't allowed to transition as most other immigrant's children have, they don't mix as we have and only know what they've been brought up in. What concerns me is what the Iman's in their mosques openly preach.
