It seems to me that Nazis were and are opposed to the existence of Jews in their country and that the KKK was and is opposed to the existence of blacks in their neighborhoods.

Germans spoke out against the Nazis before many of them were silenced. White Christians spoke out and marched against the KKK. When a group has a cancer in its mist, the larger group has to repel the cancer before it contaminates the whole.

American Muslims are opposed to what?

They are opposed to loudly distancing themselves from the Islamist extremist (you know, like the Christians did against Terry Jones). In America, Muslims are at a crossroad. Will they continue to let the Islamist extremists speak for them or will they define themselves? The polls are as they are for a reason and until you recognize that, the polls may continue to go against you and your interests. At some point the Muslims will have to make sure the American public clearly hears them or you will continue to see Islam being define by the only ones speaking loudly, the Islamist extremists. Telling American not to trust their lying eyes and lying ears is not going to cut it.

It appears that you are saying Americans are beacons for the world. Our values make us better that those people over seas so let us not fall to their intolerant levels. Let us resemble the more enlightened people that we frequently prove to be. We prove it, in part, by the lack of hate marches against Islam and the lack of "death to Islam" chants in the US.

We also speak out loudly against Christian extremist. Christians speak out loudly against Christian extremist. The muslim world has not been guided or encouraged by it's defenders to do so. Americans are held to a higher standard because we are better people. People in America should learn that expecting to receive tolerance as you give it is racist. You did not use those words but the inference pretty close.

Most silly Americans want to treat others well and for others to treat them well in return. I guess everyone does not agree with this line of thinking.
