Re: “Vermont Muslims Strengthen Ties During Ramadan

This is what most Americans including myself would've expected: an immersed Muslim-American community from different parts of the world embracing the Constitution while sharing their faith and culture harmoniously. In the neighborhoods and small towns of Vermont, it works, but, it's a far cry from other suburban, inner-city Muslims outside of Vermont who get away with muttering "Jihad" in the name of Allah without any consequences or embracing full immersion into the arms of American communities. Reality is they need to coexist with Christians, atheists, and other religions, and prove to be tolerant of other ideas and thoughts that aren't Muslim. To date, I've yet to see anything to the contrary that suggests that they try to coexist. America is a pluralistic idea, a living experiment that embraces all mild, moderate and extremes expressions of the 1st Amendment unequivocally without any hesitation. The day Muslims cherish that fundamental right to express will reflect their commitment to coexist. The communities in Vermont are anathema to Boston, NYC, Detroit and other large metropolitan cities. What will these Vermont communities do when a Muslim inflicts and imposes Sharia Law upon another individual in the name of Allah? I may not like the burqa or the hijab as a means of religious expression. I find it demeaning & repressive to women. But it's their right to express it. And, as an American, I begrudgingly tolerate and accept it.
