Virginia Tech: Questions for the Eteraz.org Community

As I have said before, on the whole I like Eteraz and Eteraz.org's general drift. Which is why I stay engaged there--and try to raise issues I think important. There's a post on the Eteraz.org site titled "One Brother Dead"...

Shouldn't that be "at least" one brother dead? There was also mention of at least one female victim that seemed to have a Muslim background: Reema Samaha. She can't be considered a sister?

Other questions:

  • Should our compassion be specifically focused on the "brothers" and "sisters"
    affected? Is Eteraz.org going to take the "Islam is my tribe and I am very parochial because my tribe is under seige" attitude so common amongst American Muslims?
  • The President of the student body is a gentleman called "Adeel Khan". Shouldn't he figure in our engagement with the incident? Or is the MSA the only form of "Islam-ic" leadership we will recognize?
  • The Virgina Tech MSA also asks for prayers for everyone affected, by the way.
