I welcome the remarks of President Barack Obama on the issue of the Islamic center near Ground Zero. He said that Muslims also have the full right to practice their religion and build the Islamic center. However, this is just an opinion of the president of a secular country. Obama needs to practice what he preaches. He must take stern action against those spreading Islamophobia.

Effective measures should also be taken by moderate Christians. Dialogues with Muslim circles should be held to explain Islamic belief.

I thought this was an interesting article, especially since it afforded me an opportunity to see the controversy surrounding this Islamic center through the eyes of a Arab Muslim in the Middle East, an important perspective for understanding how the outside world is understanding what is happening here. Unfortunately, it seems that the author didn't have enough space to discuss what he thought Obama and other moderates in the US ought to be doing, so I thought I would present the question here and find out what our Muslim members here think moderate Americans ought to be doing in response to this controversy? Thanks in advance for your responses.

I agree that this is a good place to start. Do you have any other ideas on what you think moderate Americans could do that would be effective measures against Islamophobia?

Thanks. I try and do what I can if I hear people talking about Islam and correct some of their misconceptions, but perhaps there is more I should be doing. Thus, I ask if anyone else has ideas or would like to see moderate Americans do.
