Islam in America: Are the two Conducive? An article exploring the American perception of Muslims and citizens of the Islamic nations residing in America. Can the division of cultures be reconciled?

I wonder if Mr. Marsche is aware of how many U.S. Presidents, Government Officials, American Icons have been (and are) Muslim Shriners.

"The Shriners are a group of advanced-level Freemasons organized for philanthropy and fun. It was started in the 1870s in New York.  The group has rites and costumes that include the well-known red fez with a black tassel.   Several U.S. presidents have been Shriners, including Gerald Ford, Harry Truman and Franklin D. Roosevelt."

Islam and America have been "conducive" for a longer period of time, and to a greater degree, than most critics of Islam could imagine.
 
What ever happened to the skill of "critical thinking"?
