Are Muslims part of America's Heritage? (A citizens response)
Unknown - email | 7-25-10 | Unknown

Posted on 07/25/2010 5:22:29 PM PDT by bigbob

Barack Obama, during his Cairo speech, said: "I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America's story."

AN AMERICAN CITIZEN'S RESPONSE:

Dear Mr. Obama:

Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed? Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.

Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day? Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.

Can you show me one Muslim signature on the United States Constitution? Declaration of Independence? Bill of Rights? Didn't think so.

Did Muslims fight for this country's freedom from England ? No.

Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America? No, they did not. In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery. Your own half brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as "pug nosed slaves." Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of your familys "rich Islamic heritage," doesn't it Mr. Obama?

Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country? Not present.

There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by side with Martin Luther King, Jr. or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.

Where were Muslims during this country's Woman's Suffrage era? Again, not present. In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are subservient to men in the Islamic culture. So much so, that often they are beaten for not wearing the 'hajib' or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their husband. Yep, the Muslims are all for women's rights, aren't they?

Where were Muslims during World War II? They were aligned with Adolf Hitler. The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from the Nazi's in killing Jews.

Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001? If they weren't flying planes into the World Trade Center , the Pentagon or a field n Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East . No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news networks that day. Strangely, the very "moderate" Muslims who's asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11. To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.

And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the "rich heritage" Muslims have here in America .

Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates. They were Muslim.

And now we can add November 5, 2009 - the slaughter of American soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major who is a doctor and a psychiatrist who was supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan.

That, Mr. Obama is the "Muslim heritage" in America.

Wasn’t the US Navy largely founded to go to “Stop Jihad Now” in the Mediterranean?

“I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of my story.” There. Now it’s corrected.

Great letter.

It’s a shame that Stroker wouldn’t be man enough to (1) actually read it and (2) understand what the writer is saying.

Debate is wasted in Stroker and his ilk. It’s better just to toss him onto the scrap heap of history.

The only thing you will find is a statement by John Randolph of Roanoke that he admired Islam.

Of course, he didn't know much about it.

He also was held insane in a court of law. read all about it.

The Muslims are a part of our history. The very first battle after the war of Independence was a battle against some pirate off the Barbary coast where pirates were raiding our ships. The Barbary pirates were Muslims.

Muslims have been coming into this country since 1895. They settled in Iowa and later built the first mosque in America in 1934 which is called the Mother Mosque.

The only muslim heritage is the murder of 3,000+ innocent Americans, the flood of immigrants now building mosques at an alarming rate from one coast to another and a president with a muslim moniker.

Would ya’all feel comfortable with muslims being 1% of our population?
How about 5%?
25%?
51%? No?

Then why have any?

They have a history with this country and that history is why our Marines bear the nickname leathernecks.

From the Halls of Montezuma
To the Shores of Tripoli;
We will fight our country’s battles
In the air, on land and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
of United States Marine

Something tells me George Washington didn't cross the Delaware shouting "Allah Akbar."

“Your own half brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself”

I didn’t know that. Does anyone in the extended obama family own slaves now or in the past?

One among many of the salutory effects of Columbus’s voyage to America was that America was declared for Christian Europe. If Columbus had not gone (I know he was looking for a route to the East Indies), the Muslims with their superior technology back then — the astrolobe — would’ve discovered America and declared that hemisphere for Islam.

An equally poignant question might be, “When the muslims have subjugated and/or killed the people of America will they still consider us part of the American Heritage?”

Aw, you beat me to it. Lord Nelson called the burning of the Philadelphia in Tripoli harbor "the most bold and daring act of the age." Praise from the master is praise indeed.

Didn’t North African muslims favor a Meditteranean galley type of vessel as opposed to the cog/galleon type sailing vessel. Not saying that they couldn’t make the voyage, but exploiting such a discovery requires vessels with large volume and good sea-keeping abilities.

To claim “muslim heritage” is standard muslim procedure. They claim to have been first in Australia (the aborigines had a town called “Mecca”), in Israel (Abraham “wished he was a Muslim”), and Obama claims they have been first in America.

These creatures are a blight that humanity will not survive.

Here's another incorrect arabic historical reference:

Quoted from Wikipedia - Arabic numerals

Arabic numerals or Hindu numerals[1][2] or Hindu-Arabic numerals[2][3] are the ten digits (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9). They are descended from the Hindu-Arabic numeral system developed by Indian mathematicians, by which a sequence of numerals such as "975" is read as a whole number. The Indian numerals were adopted by the Persian mathematicians in India, and passed on to the Arabs further west. From there they were transmitted to Europe in the Middle Ages. The use of Arabic numerals spread around the world through European trade, books and colonialism. Today they are the most common symbolic representation of numbers in the world.

In March 1785, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams went to negotiate with Tripoli’s envoy to London, Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman (or Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja). Upon inquiring “concerning the ground of the pretensions to make war upon nations who had done them no injury”, the ambassador replied:

It was written in their Koran, that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every muslim who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise. He said, also, that the man who was the first to board a vessel had one slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck of an enemy’s ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into the foe that they cried out for quarter at once.

...........................................

The United States Marines have been killing muslims since 1804.

Who am I to argue with tradition?

ISLAM is part of the US’s heritage. Islamic terrorists commandeered US civilian ships. Hijackings that is. Acts of piracy. The US projected it’s military might for the first time after becoming a nation to defeat those terrorists. Since that time, Islam has claimed to been at war with the United States. So, yes, heritage. Islam plays a part, a terrorist part. Mr President, before oyu rewrite history, know this: Nobody knows history better than those of us who attended school in the US. You, sir, attended school in a Muslim Madrassa in Indonesia. You know nothing of US history other than was taught my an Imam that seeks to hate and destroy the US. You can thank me later for the lesson

When I was stationed in Jordan in 1975-1977 I frequently visited the RJAF air base at Mafraq, Jordan. One of the waiters in the officr’s club there was from Kenya. He had been sold into slavery by moslems and had been bought by a Saudi. After living in Saudi Arabia for a number of years, he managed to escape to Jordan where slavery was not legally allowed. He said that if the Saudis ever managed to grab him and take him back to Saudi Arabia his owner could legally put him to death.

Wouldn't it have been easier just to ask our UP (Undocumented President) what the hell he was talking about when he made that asinine statement?

Of course we could all be wrong, then we'll have to apologize.

I already promised to apologize when anyone produces proof of a muslim, working his entire lifetime in a muslim country, having won a nobel prize in the sciences, medicine or mathematics. Just one.

Of course, I wouldn't want to give the Nobel committees ideas... in the absurd world of today, it may happen just to make muslims "feel better about themselves," as the head of NASA put it...

While the mortality rate for slaves being transported across the Atlantic was as high as 10%, the percentage of slaves dying in transit in the Trans Sahara and East African slave trade was between 80 and 90%!

The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from the Nazi's in killing Jews.

The Grand Mufti set up shop in Berlin, when he went on the run from the British in Palestine.

I think it was after he'd met with Hitler and his men, in 1941, or so, that the Final Solution was planned. I don't think that was a coincidence.

They imported themselves over and grew their own families and community to the point that they needed a mosque. Here's a pic of it.
