Can a devout Muslim be an American patriot and loyal citizen? The perspective of an American Muslim Can a devout Muslim be an American patriot and a loyal citizen? Consider this: Theologically, no. Because his allegiance is to Allah, the moon god of Arabia. In the Qur'an, we read that the earth in its entirety belongs to God, and humans can settle anywhere as long as they do not encroach on the rights of others to that piece of land where they will settle. As such, wherever Muslims live, they have the responsibility to defend the community and take care of the environment and other related matters for the good of all. "Patriotism", in the sense of "love for a place where one lives and has a home and family" is part of one's faith in Islam. Hence, "loyalty" and "patriotism" to one's country of residence is an obligation that stems from one's faith commitment. "Allegiance" to God means allegiance to the betterment of this earth and its inhabitants without the extremes of negative nationalism and patriotism. 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. In Islam there is no concept of Promised Land to which one day all Muslims must return before the Final Days. There is no allegiance to any part of the earth, not even to Mecca. Allegiance is only to God, the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe. No Muslim has "allegiance" to the Five Pillars. The Five Pillars are nothing more than the means to show one's obedience to God. Mecca is important simply because it has one of the holiest places of worship - mosques - built by Prophet Abraham and his son Ismael. No Muslim ever dreams of returning to Mecca for permanent residence. There is always a desire to visit and to worship God in the sanctuary. Socially, no. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews. Again, there is no "allegiance" to Islam. There is faith in God and "Islam" is an act of submission to God's will that requires Muslims to live in peace with all communities on earth, including the Jews and the Christians. However, if any group of humanity engages in hostility against Muslims then they are required to defend themselves. There is no blind friendship or loyalty in Islam. If friendship to any human being, regardless whether that person is a Muslim, Jew, or Christian leads to corruption in society, then Muslims are to shun such company and loyalty. Politically, no. Because he must submit to the mullah (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, the great Satan. In Islam there is neither "church" nor "priesthood." No Muslim has an obligation to follow a scholar (Mullah) who teaches hatred and harm to others. To the contrary, it is the duty of Muslims to follow the leaders who represent the moral and spiritual values of Islam. No one can stand indifferent to injustice in the world and regard himself or herself as a member of the human community, let alone of the Muslim community. At the same time, Muslims must always be alert and prepared to face the hostility and irrational attitude of other peoples. It is Satanic to demonize other human beings - whether it is done religiously or politically; whether it comes in the form of religious bigotry, or social and political discrimination. Domestically, no, because he is instructed to marry four women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34). There is no such blanket obligation in the Qur'an to marry four wives. The quoted verse occurs in the context of orphan girls under the custody of a guardian who, in the interest of preserving the property of the orphan girls, is instructed to marry one, two, three or four, provided he can treat them justly. Islam did not invent polygamy. It existed before it in every religion and civilization, and Islam is the first religion to actually limit the number of wives to four. The Qur'an also underscores the reality in spousal relationship that treating with justice among multiple wives is impossible, and, therefore, a Muslim is advised to stick to one wife. The question of honor of the home is extremely central to the Qur'an and therefore, whether it is a woman who is unfaithful to her husband or a husband who is unfaithful to his wife (Q. 4:128), the matter deserves to be resolved quickly to preserve the sanctity of the family. Religiously, no. Because no other religion is accepted by his Allah except Islam (Quran, 2:256) Quite to the contrary, of all the three Abrahamic scriptures, it is only in the Qur'an that Judaism, Christianity and Islam are treated as equally capable of guiding and saving their own flocks. God has no problem with any religion because there is only true faith that leads different peoples of the world to their Creator. It is a problem when different faith communities teach discrimination against others. In the record of the world history, one needs to examine whether it was Islam or any other religion that had problem with coexistence with other communities. The record of Islamic civilization is clear and open for anyone needing evidence of tolerance and acceptance of other faiths and peoples.

Not at all true. Islam is 1 of 3 Abrahamic religions. 2 don't believe Jesus is the Son if God, but Islam believes he is the second greatest prophet, after Mohamed. Radicalized Muslims exist in the middle east but many fewer in the far east where several majority Muslim nations have had female heads of state. We never have.

Cult Sharia law practiced by Muslims AMERICANS NEED to be EDUCATED about the DANGERS of ISLAM before it's too late! 1. Islam commands offensive and aggressive and unjust jihad. You can not reason with true Islamic believers - there's is a religion of fear of a god - a god of death! Islam is about "submission" to a god who is angry, who is not our FATHER, nor does HE have an only Begotten SON, and they have no concept of the Holy Spirit. Their religion is a distortion of the LAW of MOSES (without any grace), forgiveness, but instead of harsh rules! 2. Islam orders apostates to be killed. Islamic Law - Sharia - is being implemented in America (which is already happening in Muslim Free zones while local law enforcement officials are discouraged from interfering) But if America was to embrace Sharia - the first to be eliminated are the very people who are protesting for the rights of Muslims Immigrants to come into America without "extreme vetting." Here are a list of those who will be tried and executed... A. Atheists B. Liberals, C. Free Thinkers D. Jews E. Christians F. Hindus H. LGBTQ I. Depending on which Muslim Sect rules (Sunni, Shiite, etc.} - the ruling sect will eliminate the others sects like ISIS is doing! Muslims killing Muslims! 3. Islam orders death for Muslim and possible death for non-Muslim critics of Muhammad and the Quran and even sharia itself No freedom of speech for America! You cannot profanity the name of their god - Allah - and their prophet Muhammad. Liberals writers and Hollywood love to make fun of Christians, Jesus, Religious Jews, etc. They get away with it because true Christianity is a religion of life, love and the desire to help ensure justice and peace! But ISLAM will not allow anyone to speak against their god or their messenger. Veiled references against any rule of Islam can be interpreted that you have blasphemed their god. 4. Islam orders unmarried fornicators to be whipped and adulterers to be stoned to death. Most of the time it is the woman who is stoned to death but not the male adulterer. Husbands who are tired of being married to their wives can accuse their wives of adultery, so they will be executed. Men can also have multiple wives. Woman are considered lower than men and property! 5. Islam commands that homosexuals must be executed! Need I say more? How can liberals and Hollywood support Islam in any way. The Bible does declare Homosexuality and sex outside of marriage as sin. But in Christianity and Judaism there is no death sentence or punishment like whipping these offenders. How can any American support Islam and Sharia? 6. Islam commands that highway robbers should be crucified or mutilated. Need I say more? But the truth is a person can easily be falsely accused as being a robber by an enemy and depending on the accusers status a person will be judged and unjustly executed. 7. Islam commands that a male and female thief must have a hand cut off. There will be a lot of Americans who will be walking around without hands - cheat on your taxes and be caught? Again, a person can easily be falsely accused as being a thief by an enemy and depending on the accusers status a person will be judged and unjustly loose their hand! 8. Islam allows an injured plaintiff to exact legal revenge—physical eye for physical eye. Must I say more? 9. Islam allows husbands to hit their wives even if the husbands merely fear highhandedness in their wives. Women are to submit to their husbands and make authority. A woman must cover themselves. If they wear revealing clothes that can be raped, humiliated, whipped on the spot. How can Hollywood celebrities advocate and call for the embracing of Islam in any way? 10. Islam commands that drinkers and gamblers should be whipped. Talk about strict law! 11. Those who produce or look at pornography will be severely punished and could even be executed. However, those who are in the "ruling class" are not subject to these laws. 12. Men can marry underage women and children. 13. Men can have sex with those who are slaves (male and female) and with animals. These are only some of what Sharia Law allows. Americans need to be educated about this reality and wake up before it's too late!

“Islam's 20-point plan for conquering the By Anis Shorrosh, author of ''Islam Revealed'' and ''The True Furqan,'' is a Christian Arab-American who emigrated from Arab-controlled Jerusalem in January 1967. 1. Terminate America’s freedom of speech by replacing it with hate crime bills state-wide and nation-wide. 2. Wage a war of words using black leaders like Louis Farrakhan, Rev. Jesse Jackson and other visible religious personalities to promote Islam as the original African-American’s religion while Christianity is for the whites. Avoid/deny telling the African-Americans that it was the Arab Muslims who captured them and sold them as slaves. 3. Engage the American public in dialogues, discussions, and debates in colleges, universities, public libraries, radio, TV, churches and mosques on the virtues of Islam. Proclaim how it is historically another religion like Judaism and Christianity with the same monotheistic faith. 4. Nominate Muslim sympathizers to political office for favorable legislation to Islam and support potential sympathizers by block voting. 5. Take control of as much of Hollywood, the press, TV, radio and the internet by buying the corporations or controlling stock. 6. Yield to the fear of imminent shut-off of the lifeblood of America – the black gold. America’s economy depends on oil. 7. Yell, “foul, out-of-context, personal interpretation, hate crime, Zionist, un- American, inaccurate interpretation of the Quran” anytime Islam is criticized or the Quran is analyzed in the public arena. 8. Encourage Muslims to penetrate the White House, specifically with Islamists who can articulate a peaceful picture of Islam. Acquire government positions; get membership in local school boards. Train Muslims as medical doctors to dominate the medical field, research and pharmaceutical companies. Take over the computer industry. Establish Middle Eastern restaurants throughout the U.S. to connect planners of Islamization in a discreet way. 9. Accelerate Islamic demographic growth via: a. Massive immigration. b. No birth control – every baby of Muslim parents is automatically a Muslim and cannot choose another religion later. c. Muslim men must marry American women and Islamize them. Then divorce them and remarry every five years – since one cannot have the Muslim legal permission to marry four at one time. This is a legal solution in America. d. Convert angry, alienated black prison inmates and turn them into militants. 10. Reading, writing, arithmetic and research through the American educational system, mosques and student centers should be sprinkled with dislike of Jews, evangelical Christians and democracy. There are 300 exclusively Muslim schools with loyalty to the Quran, not the U.S. Constitution. 11. Provide monetary Muslim grants to colleges and universities in America to establish “Centers for Islamic studies” with Muslim directors to promote Islam in higher education institutions. 12. Let the entire world know through propaganda, speeches, and seminars, local and national media that terrorists have hijacked Islam. 13. Appeal to the historically compassionate and sensitive Americans for sympathy and tolerance towards the Muslims in America who are portrayed as mainly immigrants from oppressed countries. 14. Nullify America’s sense of security by manipulating the intelligence community with misinformation. Periodically terrorize Americans of impending attacks on bridges, tunnels, water supplies, airports, apartment buildings and malls. 15. Form riots and demonstrations in the prison system demanding Islamic Sharia as the way of life, not American’s justice system. 16. Open numerous charities throughout the U.S. use the funds to support Islamic terrorism with American dollars. 17. Raise interest in Islam on America’s campuses by insisting that freshman take at least one course on Islam. Be sure that the teacher is an American, Christian, and expresses the peaceful, spiritual and religious aspect of Islam only. 18. Unify the numerous Muslim lobbies in Washington, mosques, Islamic student centers, educational organizations, magazines and papers by internet and an annual convention to coordinate plans, propagate the faith and engender news in the media of their visibility. 19. Send intimidating messages and messengers to the outspoken individuals who are critical of Islam and seek to eliminate them. 20. Applaud Muslims as loyal citizens of the US by spotlighting their voting record as the highest percentage of all minority and ethnic groups in America, thereby making their vote indispensable for the politicians looking for votes.

Instead of living in a world of fear built upon your hate & ignorance, you ought to try talking people.

You really are a bunch of idiots. Have fun being part of the caliphate, but don't take others with you. & BTW: That word "hate" is much more familiar to you than it is to me, but that never stopped a leftist from assigning emotions to others, whom they do not know, that are their own projections. You are not allowed to tell others how they feel: not in the bedroom, not in the boardroom, not on FB, NOWHERE. Figure out what YOU mean by "hate," because I don't know, & what I think you are trying to say with it has absolutely nothing to do with me. The left cannot survive without victims. It's what you're about, & if you run out of them, you'll turn people into them. WHERE are hijab-donning women speaking out about Islam's treatment of women?? WHERE?? When have "feminists" shrieked in outrage against 9-year-old Yemeni child brides? There are true victims, but those you ignore so that you can advance your cushy little world view. You didn't care much for that 12-year-old rape victim Hillary slaughtered in the courtroom, either.

We call for a one day nonviolent national strike on tax day April 18. We strike to demand Trump release all past and future tax returns. We pay taxes and work too hard for our leadership to not pay taxes and to conceal corporate vested interests. We abide by tax laws that favor the rich without representation. We pay taxes even when Trump threatens to cut our federal funding. On tax day we (that is, anyone who can do so without being fired) will not go to work and we will not shop or spend money. We will spend the day calling on our representatives demanding Trump release his returns. We will make our economic and political power felt. https://www.facebook.com/events/245371522578884/?ti=icl https://www.facebook.com/groups/1823951761191517/ #taxdaystrike #nationalstrike

Simmons supports Nation of Islam (as does Linda Sarsour a prominent speaker at this rally and the Women's March). NOI is a black Muslim hate group. When a Jewish group took him to task for preaching non-hate while promoting this group Simmons lost his temper and told them off. Muslims have contributed greatly to violence and hatred towards Jews, gays and women. Simmons also have a history of promoting music that is homophobic and mysogynistic and has never owned up to it but instead uses the race card to defend it. It is amazing that two groups of people (blacks and Muslims) that are responsible for an enormous disproportinate amount of the violence and hateful rhetoric want to lecture the rest of us on peace and tolerance. These people aren't civil rights advocates, they are the Muslim (and black) version of AIPAC. They need to take the speck out of their own eye. If they'd done that earlier I doubt Trump would be in office today!

To the contrary, it is the duty of Muslims to follow the leaders who represent the moral and spiritual values of Islam. No one can stand indifferent to injustice in the world and regard himself or herself as a member of the human community, let alone of the Muslim community. At the same time, Muslims must always be alert and prepared to face the hostility and irrational attitude of other peoples. It is Satanic to demonize other human beings - whether it is done religiously or politically; whether it comes in the form of religious bigotry, or social and political discrimination. Domestically, no, because he is instructed to marry four women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34). There is no such blanket obligation in the Qur'an to marry four wives. The quoted verse occurs in the context of orphan girls under the custody of a guardian who, in the interest of preserving the property of the orphan girls, is instructed to marry one, two, three or four, provided he can treat them justly. Islam did not invent polygamy. It existed before it in every religion and civilization, and Islam is the first religion to actually limit the number of wives to four. The Qur'an also underscores the reality in spousal relationship that treating with justice among multiple wives is impossible, and, therefore, a Muslim is advised to stick to one wife. The question of honor of the home is extremely central to the Qur'an and therefore, whether it is a woman who is unfaithful to her husband or a husband who is unfaithful to his wife (Q. 4:128), the matter deserves to be resolved quickly to preserve the sanctity of the family. Religiously, no. Because no other religion is accepted by his Allah except Islam (Quran, 2:256) Quite to the contrary, of all the three Abrahamic scriptures, it is only in the Qur'an that Judaism, Christianity and Islam are treated as equally capable of guiding and saving their own flocks. God has no problem with any religion because there is only true faith that leads different peoples of the world to their Creator. It is a problem when different faith communities teach discrimination against others. In the record of the world history, one needs to examine whether it was Islam or any other religion that had problem with coexistence with other communities. The record of Islamic civilization is clear and open for anyone needing evidence of tolerance and acceptance of other faiths and peoples.

Cult Sharia law practiced by Muslims AMERICANS NEED to be EDUCATED about the DANGERS of ISLAM before it's too late! 1. Islam commands offensive and aggressive and unjust jihad. You can not reason with true Islamic believers - there's is a religion of fear of a god - a god of death! Islam is about "submission" to a god who is angry, who is not our FATHER, nor does HE have an only Begotten SON, and they have no concept of the Holy Spirit. Their religion is a distortion of the LAW of MOSES (without any grace), forgiveness, but instead of harsh rules! 2. Islam orders apostates to be killed. Islamic Law - Sharia - is being implemented in America (which is already happening in Muslim Free zones while local law enforcement officials are discouraged from interfering) But if America was to embrace Sharia - the first to be eliminated are the very people who are protesting for the rights of Muslims Immigrants to come into America without "extreme vetting." Here are a list of those who will be tried and executed... A. Atheists B. Liberals, C. Free Thinkers D. Jews E. Christians F. Hindus H. LGBTQ I. Depending on which Muslim Sect rules (Sunni, Shiite, etc.} - the ruling sect will eliminate the others sects like ISIS is doing! Muslims killing Muslims! 3. Islam orders death for Muslim and possible death for non-Muslim critics of Muhammad and the Quran and even sharia itself No freedom of speech for America! You cannot profanity the name of their god - Allah - and their prophet Muhammad. Liberals writers and Hollywood love to make fun of Christians, Jesus, Religious Jews, etc. They get away with it because true Christianity is a religion of life, love and the desire to help ensure justice and peace! But ISLAM will not allow anyone to speak against their god or their messenger. Veiled references against any rule of Islam can be interpreted that you have blasphemed their god. 4. Islam orders unmarried fornicators to be whipped and adulterers to be stoned to death. Most of the time it is the woman who is stoned to death but not the male adulterer. Husbands who are tired of being married to their wives can accuse their wives of adultery, so they will be executed. Men can also have multiple wives. Woman are considered lower than men and property! 5. Islam commands that homosexuals must be executed! Need I say more? How can liberals and Hollywood support Islam in any way. The Bible does declare Homosexuality and sex outside of marriage as sin. But in Christianity and Judaism there is no death sentence or punishment like whipping these offenders. How can any American support Islam and Sharia? 6. Islam commands that highway robbers should be crucified or mutilated. Need I say more? But the truth is a person can easily be falsely accused as being a robber by an enemy and depending on the accusers status a person will be judged and unjustly executed. 7. Islam commands that a male and female thief must have a hand cut off. There will be a lot of Americans who will be walking around without hands - cheat on your taxes and be caught? Again, a person can easily be falsely accused as being a thief by an enemy and depending on the accusers status a person will be judged and unjustly loose their hand! 8. Islam allows an injured plaintiff to exact legal revenge—physical eye for physical eye. Must I say more? 9. Islam allows husbands to hit their wives even if the husbands merely fear highhandedness in their wives. Women are to submit to their husbands and make authority. A woman must cover themselves. If they wear revealing clothes that can be raped, humiliated, whipped on the spot. How can Hollywood celebrities advocate and call for the embracing of Islam in any way? 10. Islam commands that drinkers and gamblers should be whipped. Talk about strict law! 11. Those who produce or look at pornography will be severely punished and could even be executed. However, those who are in the "ruling class" are not subject to these laws. 12. Men can marry underage women and children. 13. Men can have sex with those who are slaves (male and female) and with animals. These are only some of what Sharia Law allows. Americans need to be educated about this reality and wake up before it's too late!

Can a devout Muslim be an American patriot and loyal citizen? The perspective of an American Muslim Can a devout Muslim be an American patriot and a loyal citizen? Consider this: Theologically, no. Because his allegiance is to Allah, the moon god of Arabia. In the Qur'an, we read that the earth in its entirety belongs to God, and humans can settle anywhere as long as they do not encroach on the rights of others to that piece of land where they will settle. As such, wherever Muslims live, they have the responsibility to defend the community and take care of the environment and other related matters for the good of all. "Patriotism", in the sense of "love for a place where one lives and has a home and family" is part of one's faith in Islam. Hence, "loyalty" and "patriotism" to one's country of residence is an obligation that stems from one's faith commitment. "Allegiance" to God means allegiance to the betterment of this earth and its inhabitants without the extremes of negative nationalism and patriotism. 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. In Islam there is no concept of Promised Land to which one day all Muslims must return before the Final Days. There is no allegiance to any part of the earth, not even to Mecca. Allegiance is only to God, the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe. No Muslim has "allegiance" to the Five Pillars. The Five Pillars are nothing more than the means to show one's obedience to God. Mecca is important simply because it has one of the holiest places of worship - mosques - built by Prophet Abraham and his son Ismael. No Muslim ever dreams of returning to Mecca for permanent residence. There is always a desire to visit and to worship God in the sanctuary. Socially, no. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews. Again, there is no "allegiance" to Islam. There is faith in God and "Islam" is an act of submission to God's will that requires Muslims to live in peace with all communities on earth, including the Jews and the Christians. However, if any group of humanity engages in hostility against Muslims then they are required to defend themselves. There is no blind friendship or loyalty in Islam. If friendship to any human being, regardless whether that person is a Muslim, Jew, or Christian leads to corruption in society, then Muslims are to shun such company and loyalty. Politically, no. Because he must submit to the mullah (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, the great Satan. In Islam there is neither "church" nor "priesthood." No Muslim has an obligation to follow a scholar (Mullah) who teaches hatred and harm to others. To the contrary, it is the duty of Muslims to follow the leaders who represent the moral and spiritual values of Islam. No one can stand indifferent to injustice in the world and regard himself or herself as a member of the human community, let alone of the Muslim community. At the same time, Muslims must always be alert and prepared to face the hostility and irrational attitude of other peoples.

The one good thing, if there is one, that Trump's divisive policy has brought out, is rallies like this; it shows there are still a lot of people that care and stand up for Muslims, and those being targeted by him. Thank you my American brothers and sisters from Canada.
