I certainly oppose the American occupation of Iraq but when I hear the steady drumbeat of how Americans or the American government hates Muslims or is anti-Muslim, it annoys me.

Where were the "Americans are anti-Muslim" cries when Americans tried to feed the Somalis or intervened in favor of the Bosnian Muslims or in favor of the Kosovar Muslims?

And now, some terrorists fired mortar rounds into a mosque in Baghdad as Shia Muslims celebrated the holiest day of their year. At least 50 were killed and over 100 injured. Hundreds of people were in the main mosque at the time. After the blast, thousands of worshippers' shoes and sandals were strewn across the street outside, reports the BBC.

But Americans are the real Muslim-haters...
