This whole campaign to censor Islamaphobic material incenses me...rather than tackle the root cause of the problem we reach for bandaid solutions.
A simple google search for comments/articles/images that are demeaning of Islam and our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) will show you thousands of results. Will hiding all of them fix the root cause of the problem?

Sir Ken Robinson's TED talk about education has me thinking about the education of my children...so I'll be reading a couple of his books to get another perspective on how to look for what might inspire my children to learn and have passion in doing so.

The topic of Islamic education for Muslims living in the West is a topic that I feel is of the utmost importance. Growing up my mother did the best she could in providing my sister and I with an Islamic education that entailed how and when to pray, how to read the Qur'an in arabic, etc. For a short time we even attending an "sunday school" to learn more about our faith.
