Skip to comments.Are Muslims part of America's Heritage? (A citizens response)

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.
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.
Of course, he didn't know much about it.
He also was held insane in a court of law. read all about it.
The worthless Kenyan Liar and Democrat strikes again,But he was born and raised that way and with 22 years in the Wright house of Lies as reinforcement also Liar heroes Jesse,Al,Louie and the entire Cast of the NAACP Carnival Side show.
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.
Depends on what you mean by ‘story.’ Avast! That be pirates!
“...to the shores of Tripoli.....”
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.
Mooselims = destruction, ignorance, hate & terror.
Would ya’all feel comfortable with muslims being 1% of our population?
How about 5%?
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?”
Good point - the muslims gave the us the United States Marine Corps.
They have already killed Americans on our shores. I will NEVER forget 9/11. Deport them all.
