Elections, Choices yet Again?

In this season the press is inundated with election stories, polls, and opinion pieces. In the main, the Israel press covers international news in a more comprehensive way than does the national press of the rest of the world. International as well as local election reports and stories are of interest to a wide spectrum of people with differing preconceived notions and political agendas.

A Muslim convert’s reaction to the upcoming US elections

I am an American 100%, born and raised. At age 16, after much exploration, I decided to convert to Islam. Thankfully, I was born in a country that allows each individual to choose their beliefs. I have now been a Muslim for more than half of my life. Since I am white and do not wear the hijab (headscarf), my Muslimness goes unnoticed. In other words, I rarely encounter prejudice or profiling.
