Elena Coassolo, 24, a Gilbert nurse, grew up Catholic. As a student at Arizona State University, she met Muslim students who told her Islam teaches peace, not violence. But Coassolo admits she was skeptical. So, she decided to investigate for herself. In 2008, she bought an English translation of the Quran. She also bought a copy of "Islam for Dummies." The more she read, Coassolo said, the more her interest in Islam deepened. "At first, I thought it was kind of a hoax. That somebody made (the religion) up," Coassolo said. "But then, I truly came to believe that it was the word from God." What she read also differed from the negative accusations she often heard from some non-Muslims: "That Muslim women don't have any rights. That Islam is violent. That Muslims are commanded to kill non-Muslims." In July 2008, she converted. She now attends services at the Islamic Cultural Center in Tempe.
This woman is as stupid as they come. Is this the kind of idiot that goes to ASU?

ASU is notorious for producing anti-American students. Don't support your kids if they want to go there.Gang up against ASU on every media and internet site you find.
