I believe in being respectful of others beliefs and culture is the right thing to do. However, there are situations where you are just not going to please everyone, try this strategy and you are doomed. There are just too many extremists of all shapes, colors and sizes to please them all. Sometimes is just comes down to using a little common sense.
The situation that developed recently with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) getting upset about Navy SEALs shooting at Middle Eastern dressed targets is just ridiculous.
“Using a Muslim woman wearing a religious head scarf with [verses from the] Quran behind her as a target for our nation’s military personnel is offensive and sends a negative and counterproductive message to trainees and to the Muslim-majority nations to which they may be deployed,” wrote CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad in a letter to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta.
