It seems that everywhere you turn, Muslims are turning up and making a stand. And, while that isn’t necessarily a bad idea, is it one that could lead to another crisis?
With the notion of playing on people’s fears and teetering on the idea of a conspiracy, people of the Muslim community have shown their face at every national crisis.
The crotch bomber: Muslim. The Ft. Hood shooter: Muslim. Do you see a repeating theme? In every instance, Muslims have been there.
So why would the administration want to endanger the International Space Station and even more lives? Who knows what they have in store anymore.
NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said in a recent interview that his “foremost” mission as the head of America’s space exploration agency is to improve relations with the Muslim world.
Though international diplomacy would seem well outside NASA’s orbit, Bolden said in an interview with Al Jazeera that strengthening those ties was among the top tasks President Obama assigned him. He said better interaction with the Muslim world would ultimately advance space travel.
“When I became the NASA administrator — or before I became the NASA administrator — he charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science … and math and engineering,” Bolden said in the interview.
