    We are not united on Ramadan. Muslims from different sects, countries have a pissing contest when Ramadan comes about, disagreeing on "when" the Moon shows. What signals the beginning of Ramadan? Does it start when the native country declares it or when Saudi's do? Follow tradition or science.

    Divisions among Muslims. Endless.

    This is the American way though, bitch about **** you do not understand because talking about stuff that actually counts for anything is to hard and complicated.

Why that might be I'm sure will create differing opinions on differing sides as to the cause...
    The moderate Muslims calling for peace and understanding don't make for good news headlines when sensationalism is what is being sought after.

    American Muslims will be. It said so in the link that sermons will occur in Mosque.

    I do not understand why Eid should be changed (You can't change the day of Eid - It's impossible anyway)
    The traditions have been in place centuries before 9/11 occurred.

    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Well it ain't 9/11 yet, so perhaps they will. Who knows.

    What does sensitivity have to do with coincidence?

    Btw I just realized you were from London. Maybe this is just perception from TV but anytime I watch BBC it seems like there are a lot of muslim people living there. If that's true, why is that?
