More information is still coming in on Shirley Sherrod, and the video of her confession of racism was just the tip of the iceberg. We recently learned after the Obama Administration quickly threw her under the bus that she and her husband had received $13 million in a discrimination lawsuit settlement, and that some of the numbers associated with that lawsuit don’t add up.

It’s extremely rare that you’ll see a Muslim condemn anything done by another Muslim, up to and including acts of terrorism, but Raheel Raza’s recent column in the Ottowa Citizen does just that, recognizing the proposed mosque at Ground Zero in New York City for what it is: a deliberate insult to America at the site where Muslim extremists killed nearly 3,000 Americans in one day.
