Now the brave Jewish Senator from Plano, Ms. Florence Shapiro, a lady who truly believes that freedoms and rights have been granted to all US citizens of ALL religious, has come under scathing attacks from many fronts. Blogs, such as the obvious ones IsraPundit, Jihadwatch, LittleGreenBigots, are abuzz with self-hating-Jew, dhimmi-wannabe type smearing of Shapiro. Hate emails are pouring in (see examples here). The question is where are the Muslim blogs?? Where are the self-proclaimed 'liberal, secularist, enlightened, progressive' Muslims when their Muslim brethren are being attacked for engaging in the American democratic system? Let's turn this tide NOW. Let's set Muslim blogs ablaze with entries about this positive event and action-alerts to support Shapiro… this is where we bloggers can make a difference, are you ready?
Your action requested: Thank Senator Shapiro by sending an email to ThankSenator@freeandjust.org

Alḥamdulillāh, our brothers at The Freedom & Justice Foundation were able to put together, what seems to have been a remarkable Muslims Legislative Day. Despite all the false and demonizing rhetoric from a few Republican party leaders, despite the showboating by the radio-host turned politician Dan Patrick (author of “the Second Most Important Book You Will Ever Read“), who walked out during the prayer only to return and make a few comments on the importance of religious tolerance (!), and how Dr. Kavacki (who opened the session with Fatiha) should be thankful for being in America, and how this nation is a Judeo-Christian nation (which he repeated a few times, I get the Christian part but unclear as to how the Jewish part has been inserted), blah, blah, blah. Shame on you Dan Patrick, shame on you for displaying your true colors and your deep-rooted bigotry. The video speaks for itself. Here is another take from Texas Kaos.
