About That Doing Unto Others Thing...

Abby Zimet

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.
