    Can a good Muslim be a good American?



    I sent that question to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years.



    The following is his reply:

    Theologically - no. Because his allegiance is to Allah, the moon god of Arabia.

    Religiously - no. Because no other religion is accepted by his Allah except Islam (Quran, 2:256)

    Scripturally - no Because his allegiance is to the five pillars of Islam and the Quran (Koran).

    Geographically - no. Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer five times a day.

    Socially - no. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.

    Politically - no. Because he must submit to the mullah (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and Destruction of America, the great Satan.

    Domestically - no. Because he is instructed to marry four women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34).

    Intellectually - no. Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.

    Philosophically - no. Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran do not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.

    Spiritually - no. Because when we declare "one nation under God," the Christian's God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in The Quran's 99 excellent names.



    Therefore after much study and deliberation....perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country They obviously cannot be both "good" Muslims and good Americans.

    Call it what you wish...it's still the truth. If you find yourself intellectually in agreement with the above statements, perhaps you will share this with your friends. The more who understand this, the better it will be for our country and our future.

    Pass it on Fellow Americans. The religious war is bigger than we know or understand.

    Dang, glad to see you. I agree with this post, in many ways. If they wish to be 'less Muslim' which many do, they can be good Americans.

    I look at it like Catholic reps. They can be 'Catholic' is they do not vote for any pro-abortion legislation; but to be true Americans, they have got to back the laws on the books. They can work to have them undone, but they have to support them.

    And that's the whole point of the above commentary I guess. If a muslim stay's true to the muslim way's, then they simply can NOT be a good American.

    Thanks Kathy, and we'll see if any drama develops with me being back or not. If so, I hope it's short lived.
