I was raised to be proud of being Muslim, being Libyan, & being an American. And it was still tough. Identity shame is such a struggle. https://t.co/xAvfvtvEWB— Hend Amry (@LibyaLiberty) 30 August 2017
Amry supports Islam in theory but she now resides in a 99% non-Muslim society. Why didn't she (or her parents) move to any of the other fifty Muslim-majority countries?
How does one mentally support a religion among whose adherents and regulations one doesn't want to live with? How can one remain proud of a country and yet leave it all together? How can one be proud of the US when its English, White, Christian roots mightily clash with in-bred, Arab Islam?
It'll remain a struggle not because of the shame but because it's schizophrenic.
