Don't Buy into the Hysteria: This Election Isn't about a Debate

"Putting aside the exaggerated reactions of media commentators "Romney triumphed" or "Obama blew it"—the debate, itself, was quite boring. Like the impact of former President Bill Clinton's convention address that boosted Democrat's morale, Romney's performance might provide a "shot in the arm" to depressed Republicans, many of whom have been troubled by their candidate and his lackluster campaign. Mood changer, yes; but not a "game changer."

The Arab American Vote: 2012

"What the AAI poll found was that Obama leads Romney, 52% to 28%, with 5% of Arab Americans supporting minor party candidates and 16% still undecided. This lead, while healthy, shows that the President still has a ways to go to duplicate the 67% to 28% lopsided margin he held over John McCain in 2008 among Arab American voters."

Crisis Averted; Challenges Remain

"Our polling of American public opinion makes clear the challenges Arabs and Muslims still face in the U.S. Opinion is not monolithic. There are majorities of Democrats, young people, and other minority communities very supportive of our communities. But there are other groups that still need to be educated or shamed into silence. There is work to be done. Work, I would add, that is only made more difficult by the scenes of rioters, et. al.—that only serve to feed the racist stereotypes of the "imagined Arabs".

In Crisis, Romney Reveals Neo-Con Tendencies

"If this week demonstrated anything it is that we live in a dangerous and volatile world that requires a steady hand and thoughtful leadership to get us out of the mess we're in. What we do not need is more of the very same ideological clap-trap that got us into this mess in the first place."

Arab American Democrats in Charlotte

"This convention will be different. For Arab Americans, with our record breaking numbers, it will represent a "coming of age.” Our hard work and perseverance has brought us from exclusion to being respected and recognized as part of the mainstream of the Democratic Party."

Half measures, pandering and posturing are the best enemies a fascist could have

Despite the lost opportunities over the last seven years, there is cause for optimism: we at least know that ridding Canada of democratic totalitarianism is not a problem that the mass public can solve. This is an institutional matter that the institution of Parliament can solve,

The Partisan, Racial and Generational Divide: How We View Arabs and Muslims

"The lesson is as clear as it is dangerous. Left unchecked, those who prey on ignorance and fear to spread hatred, and those who sow the seeds of division and intolerance threaten to tear apart the very fabric of our nation and compromise the values of openness and inclusion that have made America united and strong. The purveyors of intolerance also put at risk the rights and security of entire communities of Americans to operate in our society as full and equal citizens without fear of discrimination."
