AFTER HIS foster brother Latif shot his brother John to death in 1993, Hanief Wesley Robinson spent years plotting a murderous revenge. To this day, Robinson doesn't know whether Latif Michael Myrick intentionally or accidentally ended 14-year-old John B. Robinson III's life. It didn't matter to him. Robinson wanted Myrick dead. "I wanted his blood," Robinson said. "An eye for an eye. " Myrick was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and spent nearly 20 years in prison.

Can Kamala Khan help save the world - or at least help make it more peaceful and understanding? Don't laugh. As fear of Islamic extremists has risen in the United States following recent terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif., the first Muslim character in mainstream superhero comics to carry her own title is growing in popularity. Ms. Marvel , the character's alter ego, has been a consistently best-selling title in an increasingly crowded marketplace still dominated by decades-old characters.

Rana Elmir is the deputy director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan As an American Muslim, I am consistently and aggressively asked - by media figures, religious leaders, politicians, and Internet trolls - to condemn terrorism to prove my patriotism. I emphatically refuse. Make no mistake: The terror imposed by those who sympathize with Daesh (an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State extremist group), al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, al-Shabab, and other groups is just as foreign to me as the terror advanced by mostly white men at the alarming rate of one mass killing every two weeks in this country.

A RALLY HAPPENED in Upper Darby last week that gave me hope and presented a challenge. The rally was organized by Upper Darby Police Superintendent Mike Chitwood and Kamal Rahman, one of the leaders of the Masjid Al-Madinah Upper Darby Islamic Center. Chitwood told me the rally was talked about over the last few months and was intended to clearly denounce ISIS, underline the alliance of the Islamic Center and the police department and serve as a direct statement about the pride that the Muslim citizens had in being Americans.

ISSUE | MOSQUE ATTACK Sisters and brothers It was with profound sorrow that I read of the desecration of the sacred mosque of the Al Aqsa Islamic Society by a cowardly and ignorant person last week ("Pig's head left at N. Phila. mosque," Tuesday). I have attended interfaith worship services and been joyfully received as a guest at the breaking of the Ramadan fast there. I have personally experienced these folks to be among the best of humankind. Our world and city would be diminished were they not among us. It is our duty and our obligation to protect them and their sisters and brothers in the Muslim community.

MOST OF US look forward to being off on Christmas Day. But what if instead of having the whole day free to attend church and spend time with friends and family, you were expected to be in class or work a normal schedule? That's what a lot of Muslims are faced with on their important religious holidays. A group calling itself the Philly Eid Coalition wants to change that by getting two additional holidays added to the city's municipal calendar and to the Philadelphia School District's academic year to accommodate two important Muslim religious days.
