Martin Luther King, Jr.

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., do something (attend a candlelight vigil, read a book, bake a cake, sing some protest songs) and read Juan Cole's post 10 Things Martin Luther King Would have Done about Iraq. I think he is right on many points. It is easy to forget or not know

that Martin recognized love as the principle that all the great religions saw as the "supreme unifying principle of life," including Islam. His religious universalism might be a starting point for Americans to rethink the Islamophobia that has become so widespread.

Yeah, you right.
