Islam Awareness; Satire

This past week, The Muslim Educational and Cultural Association held its annual Islam Awareness Week 2007.

The following schedule of events this past week were both enlightening and entertaining…

You run a pretty good blog here, with some great information. However I believe that you risk losing credibility with postings like this. While all of these statements are true of terrorists, and this is a funny post, all of these statements are not true of Islam in general. I know a few Muslims that would agree to many of your postings here, that would most definitely take offense at this one. Just a thought to ponder from someone who is an ally.

Thanks Justin, that's why I put "satire" in the header. I don't think it hurts the blog's credibility to show what might become controversial, or in this case, anticipation of a backlash against the university.
Thanks again for reading and commenting.
