Dear Mr. Trump:

I am the greatest threat to ISIS and all Islamic terrorists world wide. I am an educated, independent, ambitious young Muslim American woman and I am immune to their nonsense.

Do not fear me. Do not isolate me. 2015-12-10-1449723394-5709282-FullSizeRender.jpg Do not stigmatize me. You are not "doing good for the Muslims" as you stated Mr. Trump.
And you will not do good for America with this kind of one dimensional mindset. I'm your greatest weapon towards fighting Islamic radicalism. Fear me and you fuel their cause. Stand by me and you bring their barbaric, sorry excuse for a state to
its knees.

I am what they fear most. Why? Because I don't buy into the convoluted, perverted blasphemy they claim my religion to be. I believe in the Islam that has encouraged me to think for reason, speak for truth and act for humanity.

So don't fear me. Don't isolate me. Don't stigmatize me. Trust me, not their misguided, hypocritical, power-hungry interpretation of my religion. Support my voice to drown out their drone. Fuel my passion for peace to extinguish their savage lust for power. Believe in my humanity over their inhumanity.

Sincerely,

Concerned Citizen, Nazanin
