Assalaam alikum.

It's weird, but somehow the supposed death of Osama bin Laden gave be a burst of imaan. I belong to alot of internet forums of different topics (General Motors, Ford Focus, movies, star trek, carnivorous plants, etc). And with the 'death' of Osama, I've seen alot of hate against Muslims (people saying Osama should have been wrapped in pigskin, he'll be getting 72 virgin males, one Muslim down and more to go, etc)

I'm a regular on all these forums and suddenly I find myself defending Islam from racists. Suddenly, supposed 'friends' on these forums have revealed their true thoughts about me and Islam.

In a "we vs. them" mentality I'm seeing everywhere, I choose Islam.
