    Somebody in another forum posted this poem by Nazrul, the national poet of Bangladesh, who by the way was born into a Muslim family:

    Who are you?—A Parsee? A Jain? A Jew?
    A Santal, a Bheel or a Garo?
    A Confucian? A disciple of Charbak?
    Go on—tell me what else!

    Whosoever you are, my friend,
    Whatever holy books or scriptures
    You swallowed up or carry on your shoulder
    Or stuff your brains with—the Quran, the Puranas,
    the Vedas, the Bible, the Tripitaka, the Zend-Avesta,
    the Grantha Sahib—why do you waste your labor?

    Why inject all this into your brain?
    Why all this—like petty bargaining in a shop
    When the roads are adorned with blossoming flowers?

    Open your heart—within you lie
    All the scriptures,
    All the wisdom of all ages.

    Within you lie all the religions,
    All the prophets— your heart
    Is the universal temple
    Of all the deities.

    As we've stated time and time again, until the moderates stand up as one and condemn any and all violent action done in the name of Islam, and do so consistently and loudly, they're as culpable as those that pull the trigger.

    Tom, only Muslim extremists will actually kill you, Moderate Muslims just want the Muslim extremists to kill you.

    There was another hostage taker at a kosher store. Both the brothers and this asshole are now dead.

    Dang. That female they're looking for could almost pass as Mia Sara's twin sister.
