Islam Firmly Entrenching Itself In America

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — Muslims are steadily improving their position in U.S. society, contrary to the image of a community besieged by suspicions of links to militants, a leading U.S. Muslim cleric said yesterday.

Yahya Hendi, a prayer leader who teaches at Georgetown University, said the September 11, 2001, attacks on U.S. cities spurred Americans to learn more about Islam and Muslims to affirm their U.S. identity.

"I think the future is bright, because of our wisdom in dealing with the reality," Mr. Hendi, a Palestinian by birth, said at a gathering of Saudi academics on a visit to Saudi Arabia.

... Mr. Hendi said U.S. Muslims were working on "nationalizing" Islam as part of the fabric of U.S. society, including cutting funding links to Muslim countries. ...
... the Bush-Saudi connection just might be illustrated for all to see in this article from the WashTimes. Bush promotes and allows (turns his head from Saudi fund-raising) so that Mosques and Madrassas may be built and supported in America. In return Saudi Arabia supposedly helps us in ME concerning the W.O.T. ... we have nothing but anti-Americans in D.C. - I'm convinced of that now.
