By Khalid Amayreh in Occupied East Jerusalem
".....America was supposed to be a shining city on a hill, but your country’s backing of dictatorial police states in our region is drastically incompatible with your declared ideals. Hypocrisy and moral duplicity can’t be instrumental in building an honest relationship between American and Muslims. This is true at the individual level as well as among nations and states.
Hence, Muslims want to communicate to you the following message. Don’t support Arab dictators, don’t buy their mendacious arguments and excuses, don’t allow yourself to be duped by their twisted rationales for the absence of democracy in their countries.
Otherwise, America will lose the battle for the hearts and minds of 1.6 billion Muslims and will only have itself to blame....."
