Opinion: A plea from an exhausted Muslim woman

Opinion by Melody Moezzi, Special to CNN

(CNN) I wasn’t surprised by former British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s recent statement about a “problem within Islam.”

It’s not as though I’ve never heard anything like it before. I hear it all the time.

Still, his words in response to a recent attack in London that left a British soldier dead made me wonder: How might the public have reacted in a different context, had Blair replaced the word “Islam” with “Christianity” or “Judaism”?

I’m guessing not well.

But Muslims are used to having their faith openly denigrated by public officials.
