    Teez El-Nabi said "A couple of weeks ago, a House of Representative (ONLY 1 out of 272) was elected. He is a muslim.First one ever. A lot of Americans have gone non-linear about this, including several other congressman, who consider it a long-term threat to the USA. Nobody is calling for these protesting congressman to resign. Nobody is calling to arrest these protesting congressmen. Nobody calls the American right `fascists`, `racists`, etc ad nauseam. Americans obviously have more self-respect, and call a spade a spade, than the so-called enlightened Israeli Left, including this newspaper which prides itself in calling it "the thinking man`s paper"... Teez: I heard about one congressman (so-called) from Virginia who mouthed off about the Muslem legislator being sworn in on a Koran. I can assure you that this congressman from Virginia is now the laughing stock of most of the country. Does maintaining basic human decency make one self-hating? If so, I will accept this epitaph
