Stan, you wrote ... "friendly attitude toward Islam in certain media right after 9/11" ... that's news to me because I did not see any of that.

And as for the advertising business open for all ... did you know that after the Oklahoma explosions and before it was found that it was Timothy McVeigh who did, Muslims were denied to express their condolences to the families of the dead ! and they were refused to be allowed to help in the on-going efforts !... WHY, because the community thought that it was a Muslim who did it... so, do you really believe that the media was open or would have been receptive after 9/11?

Now, I do not share your views on the Islamic Mullahs... I think the vast majority of them are trying to make a name for themselves without offending those who can put them in jails...

As for Al Jazeera, many people in fact spoke on it .. but I think it was in Arabic only at the time ... why didn't our media cover it? I think simply because it did not provide any sensationalism...

Stan, I think the vast majority of any population crave for some decent standard of living ... and when some feel that it is beyond reach, they become vulnerable to manipulations by others ... and no one really knows what ulterior motives others might have.
