These were my talking point, and did not make them all, but a few, that's how it goes.

First of all, I thank you and Jennie Lubart for being the catalyst.   Stuart, your goading did it. We were planning for end of December but we did it now before thanksgiving.  And Jennie, thanks for the PSA’s in support of our event. 



It was a small step for Muslims, but a giant leap for Americans.  It will release a few from the guilt of mistreating fellow Americans who are Muslims.  We are moving towards building a cohesive America where no human has to live in fear of the other. Human beings feel good when they are free from hate and ill-will, and are more like God, just kind and merciful.

I believe that this effort has seeded the momentum for yet another positive movement; acceptance of Muslims as equals in the process of integration and removal of hate and restoration of God within those who were misguided and loaded with ill-will.

Muslims are reluctant to demonstrate for their own rights, but they will stand up for others rights.  As usual we had naysayers, urging us to back off, drop it off, don’t rock the boat. Indeed this is how all moderates act in every group, Chrsitians, Jews, African Americans or Hispanics.

The symbolic location was chosen to mirror the effort of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who brought a positive change to the American civil Society with his famous, “I have a dream” speech.  Indeed, this event seeds the Muslim dream to be contributors and productive citizens of America without the fear of the disappearing few. It was symbolic for us to speak from the same spot seeding a positive change for full integration and acceptance of Muslims.


Evil exists because good people do nothing about it. We the good people wanted to send a clear message to the terrorists, that we are sick of their gangs like, ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram and their ilk committing evil acts and conveniently passing the buck on to the religion.

Muslims are neither happy with those few gullible fellow Americans who are too eager to buy the poor excuses of these gangs. Instead of punishing these criminals, my fellow Americans are hell bent on finding faults with the religion.

Trump is a bubble that will burst any time, look at the history of our elections in the last 30 years, Americans have never elected irresponsible extremists to the office of the President, and I am not worried about Mr. Flip Flop.

Carson or Trump, need to learn to respect our constitution, and understand why America is one of the most stable and powerful nation – we are a country of Law and order and that is what holds us together.  These whimsical men cannot destroy our country

Stuart you are a smart guy, you will build your ratings by inclusion of all Americans on your show. What you have done is incredible. I have seen emails from the moderate Americans, The Christians, Jews, Muslims and others to watch your show and Hannity when I am on it.

It was a small step for Muslims, but a giant leap for Americans.  It will release a few from the guilt of mistreating fellow Americans who are Muslims.  We are moving towards building a cohesive America where no human has to live in fear of the other. Human beings feel good when they are free from hate and ill-will, and are more like God, just kind and merciful.



Happy thanksgiving, I will have a beautiful story about thanksgiving on our website American Muslim Institution. Org and of course on my blog TheGhouseDiary.com  As a Muslim, I am grateful to the God and our founding fathers for Making America God’s own country.
