Shaima Alawadi is not Trayvon Martin, and the responses to their murders are not the same. Who is demonstrating against the terrorism that killed Shaima? Where are the Muslims and their supporters? Why aren't they in the streets insisting that the government pay more attention to anti-Muslim terrorism?
Is it too early to expect U.S. Muslims to follow the proscription to "promote good; forbid evil"? Promoting good is not passive. It calls for one to enter the public sphere and take part in the fight for justice for all. The price of silence is extraordinarily high.
Our government is spending inordinate amounts of money spying on Muslims because they are Muslims. How about a more focus on the terrorists who are actually killing Muslims?
