Pakistani writer Aalia Suleman reported in Pakistan's Express Tribune Monday that "American Muslims find themselves holding their heads and groaning over the new wave of sneering and jeering coming their way again." Why all the sneering and jeering? "The tidal wave was set in motion last week with the arrest of Ahmad Saleem in Florida in a sting operation that busted a major child sex ring."
Saleem, explains Suleman, "was one of the 100 men arrested in attempting to have sex with girls between the ages of 12 and 14. Police officers in Lake and Polk counties in Florida posed as young girls on chat forums to lure in these predators. When Saleem arrived at the arranged house looking to have sex with a 12-year- old, what he found instead was a detective."
