I wrote a post yesterday on the fact that we now have 1 million people on the terrorist watch list. A Muslim nano tech researcher wrote a comment from Canada about how rational our discussion was.
It’s great to see rational responses from all the folks. I’m afraid to go to states and the reason is that I’m a muslim. I’m nano tech researcher by profession. I was given a job in states with a salary that I had never even dreamed of but I opted to go for it. I accepted a less competent offer by a Canadian company.
I hold no grudges against US or I don’t have any agendas but simply the fear that I’ll be categorized as a terrorist or even spied on because of my religion is kind of scary.
And I’m a modern muslim by all standards like I drink or I go out and party but still the whole “terrorist” subject is blown out of proportion by the republicans.
Someday we will look back on the hysteria of the last few years and regard it like the Salem Witch Trials. What a sad commentary on a country that once welcomed Einstein even though he was a socialist. Think of all the smart young Muslim kids who are not coming here.
