It’s good every time you see anyone hitting the right tone on this:

Stressing that Obama was a lifelong Christian, Powell denounced Republican tactics that he said were insulting not only to to Obama but also to Muslims.

“The really right answer is what if he is?” Powell said, praising the contributions of millions of Muslim citizens to American society.

Exactly so. We can’t allow ourselves to become a society where “Muslim” or “Arab” is a dirty word.
