Oh my Allah. Now right-wingers are up in vociferously-defended arms
because Best Buy's vast and stuff-packed Thanksgiving flyer included a little-bitty ad
wishing Muslims
"Happy Eid al-Adha," a holiday that 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide mark
by giving to charity. Dear hate-and-fear-filled, so-called Christian
folks: It's the season of understanding, even among those of us who are not you. Try, please.

"It makes perfect business sense to acknowledge and
celebrate a holiday that one out of four people celebrate." - Ahmed
Rehab, spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Don't Exist.
