    "Because In America All Things Are Possible" *And Also Because I Want To Believe That America Is Not About Ancestry or Race But A Mind And Heart Setting

    "For more than two centuries, this nation has been a beacon of hope and opportunity, a place that has drawn enterprising men and women from around the world who have sought to build a life as good as their talents and their hard work would allow. And generation after generation of immigrants have come to these shores because they believe that *in America all things are possible."2009 President Barack H. Obama

     

    The Citizen's Almanac

     

    "Bearing different memories, honoring different heritages, they have strengthened our economy, enriched our culture,renewed our promisse of freedom and opportunity for all...every American should reject identity politics that seeks to separete us, not bring us together" William J. Clinton-1998

     

    We hold these truths to be
    self-evident, that all men are
    created equal,that they are
    endowed by their Creator with
    certain unalienable Rights,
    that among these are Life,
    Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness

    It's my sincere conviction that no other person did more in the Fights and Struggle over Civil Rights than Our President also no other President did more to make America Safe.

    President touched almost all areas of BIAS and Prejudice less one( and I think he has not direct responsibility.)

     

    I believe that Islamophobia is a reality in America and also that President Obama is a tolerance symbol in our country and around the world. Although our values are admired in most Arab countries,internally simple liberties like association( a basic right in any Democratic Country) are sometimes denied. Muslins need a Civil Rights Movement and Leaders that speak out with no fear and the way they are harassed internally is a violation of Constitutional Rights and an Internal and External Threat . A person that felt intimidated, hounded can easily stressed out
    but even so, we have more Muslims just in NJ than the whole France that holds the largest Muslin community in Europe- that single evidence can attest our welcoming spirit and hospitality has a country.
