We have got to stop being apologetic about us being Muslims !!!

Today, Muslims are the most downcast and lowest of the low nations in the world. We make more than 1 billion of the population, that's about 1/5th of the entire human population. Jews make about 15-20 million!! There's just no comparison between 15 and 1000. But still, we are beaten down in whatever metrics of comparison you can think of. There has only been one compensation for us for the past couple of centuries: Our pride in being Muslims. But it was always going to be a matter of just time, before that would also wither away. I'm afraid these are the days now, when we can't even take pride in calling ourselves muslims. We are most certainly apologetic when it comes to any aspect of Islam today. We want to pick and choose, just to show to the world, that we are "peaceful" "peace-loving", "loving" pack of brotherhood. We are apologetic!!!

What is the solution? Watch these two documentaries if you can take out about 50 minutes out of your life, then we can perhaps discuss what could be done!! Why are these two important? Because we have to understand the bigger picture before venturing into the solution. Who are the players involved? what is going on?
