Muslims would do well to adapt to American customs, ethics,and mores instead of demanding the US bend over backwards for them.

"Islam is grossly misunderstood"

That's true. Most people have no idea just how committed and dedicated to killing us the jihadists (most of whom are Muslim) really are.

how to bring up a family according to Islamic principles, while living in the United States as a US citizen.

No.......

Like allowing your brother to rape your pre-teen daughter and then murdering HER to defend the honor of the family.

Are all muslims as backward as this guy?

American constitutional principles are used in this country, not barbaric Islamic principles.

"Difficulties like their boys not participating in birthday parties at school because it's forbidden by Islam."

Oh great. Now that this has made print look for some whiners to push a ban on any acknowedgement of a birthday in public schools. Remember, we must all be sensitive to their feelings. Other than praying and murdering nonbelievers, is there anything that Islam does not ban?

Absolutely right.

Our country was founded in part on the "melting pot" principle. You don't bring your way of life over here and reestablish, you melt in.

Sadly thanks to the left, and their anything goes anytime anywhere attitude of govt. this concept is rapidly being diluted.

"There are a few difficulties as well which we have to cope with."

Right, like for instance why you di*kheads don't publicly condemn the savagery being perpetrated upon others by Islamist radicals in the name of your "Religion of Peace"

uh.. wrong, birthday parties are not "forbidden" by Islam. If that is not the reporter's fault, someone better check on what version of Islam is at this convention.

"There are many difficulties especially in public schools because there are many differences between us and Americans," says Huma Quadir, Albany, NY.

And here lies the problem... You're not an American, and if you are you don't want to be. You come to America but you don't want to be American. You want to destroy what was here before and convert it to the hell hole you came from.

There it is in a nutshell...

There was a small piece in the Houston Comical yesterday about a Muslim girl who was feeling bad about being an American. Then she dropped her keys while exercising at the gym. They were picked up and handed back to her by a sweaty Al Gore. That small kindness by a famous person made her re think her American citizenship. Now it is glorious to be an American!

Give me a break! What rot! If her keys had been picked up by an overweight housewife or a retired grocery clerk she would still be feeling bad about America?

Difficulties like their boys not participating in birthday parties at school because it's forbidden by Islam.

No it isn't. This is clearly organized by Islamists. They're constantly attempting to suggest that their "Islam" is the only legitimate version.

Big Ceegar!!

Victor Hanson nails that exact point in "Mexifornia." And it's not simply the intransigence of the immigrants that is to blame; the liberal governments and educational institutions are enabling and promoting this nonsense.

The first clue this is bullship (the large ocean-going vessel that transports the steers to market) is;

"Muslims gather in Hartford to address living in America"
Later in the article we'll learn it's all about Americans learning being forced to let Muslims live here on their (Muslim) terms.

"On this holiday weekend, thousands of Muslims gather in Hartford to learn more about living in America and still maintaining their faith."
Yep ... you guessed it ... they use our holiday representing our forefather's oftimes bloody and fatal actions to be a free and independent nation to foist their restricting and hateful religion on us.

"Abdul Quadir Brula's family travelled from Albany, New York to Hartford today in search of answers."
What? You need answers to live in America as a Muslim? Check your religion, abdul ... YOU CAN"T DO IT !

"This is very important," says Abdul Quadir Brula."
My thought exactly.

"Quadir Brula's family, and thousands of other Muslims are facing a huge challenge; how to bring up a family according to Islamic principles, while living in the United States as a US citizen."

It friggin' can't be done!! One of us has to die, according to your religion, and YOU damned sure didn't come here to die, now, DIDJA'?

"There are a few difficulties as well which we have to cope with."
Translation ... we gotta change you guys a lot first. We'll start by gatting at your politicians.

"Difficulties like their boys not participating in birthday parties at school because it's forbidden by Islam."
Psst ... abdul ... whodoya think is going to invite them?

"There are many difficulties especially in public schools because there are many differences between US and Americans," says Huma Quadir, Albany, NY.
You're full of #h!t, Huma ... the government schools can't move fast enough to throw out Jesus in favor of your pedaphilic founder, Mohamad.

'So this weekend more than 5,000 Muslims will listen to guest speakers, interactive messages."
Damn ... I can't say what I want to, here.

"Islam is grossly misunderstood"
Wrong, camel breath ... we know and understand a lot about you.

"And shop among the 250-vendors inside the Connecticut Convention Center. All if it part of the Islamic Circle of North America Convention."Ye kinda' LIKE this capitalism stuff, doncha'? "Ever since the terrorist attacks on September 11th of 2001, many Muslims say they feel shunned because of cultural needs many restaurants in Hartford were guided as to which foods the convention goers could eat."
This sentence doesn't make sense as it stands, but ... my heart really goes out for you ... NOT.

"And separate dining areas were set up in the convention center for Muslim men and women."
Except for queers, we like our women ... very, very much and have no problem with including them in our (American) daily affairs.

So you see. Abdul ... we know you, we understand you and we can really get along IF ... you decide to BE American and not IN America.

..and don't piss us off either ... we've just about had it it with this multi-cultural $h!t.

Not anymore. We know exactly what you're up to.

The silence of the American Islamic groups on the murder of innocents around the world is deafening. Nobody except the liberals Democrats are buying the "religion of peace" garbage anymore.

Islam is perfectly understood , I here from no moderate muslims offering any disapproval with the terrorist who claim to represent islam . Where is the outrage ? There is none. They approve silently knowing the MSM won't touch the story , instead the MSM dares anybody to speak out about the so called "moderates" , silent approval . Yes I think I understand islam perfectly for I am an infedel in their eyes . Sleep on that !

Yes, I can see that living in America is very difficult for Muslims. They have many challenges. Here’s an example which comes to mind.

How do Muslim parents teach their elementary school age children to be "outsiders” and refuse to join in birthday celebrations of classmates? A small problem to an adult, but one which is very important from the child's viewpoint.

How do the Muslim parents explain to their children the harm and the disgrace in singing “Happy Birthday” and having refreshments and playing games?

Muslim parents have to show their child that it is wrong to have fun and that the carefree American children are evil and that they, the Muslim children, are superior, thus MUST remain isolated and cold and indifferent. And Muslims think this is the way to groom their children to becoming fulfilled adults, living productive lives, and become loving individuals? WRONG!

Why, for the love of God, don’t they stay out of America and fix their own countries.

The anser is: They see what we have here. It is very attractive to them. They want it. They are very greedy. And their religious teaching give them justification to want to kill us and take it from us.

There is a complete lack of love, understanding, and caring in the Muslim character. How can it NOT be? From this one example, what a great opportunity for a child to understand love and sharing, than to participate in a celebration of another child's birthday? It gives each child an opportunity to learn the lessons of giving, each in their own turn. There are opportunities to receive and their are opportunities to give.

But to the Muslim child, there is only the opportunity to build hate, judge others, and build lasting resentments.

Wow! On American's birthday -- a powerful lesson in the difference between being an American and being a Muslim.

"Islam is grossly misunderstood"

Ain't that the truth ... The Sunni and Shia murder each other because they have different understandings about the descendants of Mohammad, and the Wahabbi murder Sunni and Shia because of different understandings about the correct interpretation of the Koran. So, yes ... Islam is grossly misunderstood ... by the Muslims.

["Islam is grossly misunderstood"]

So is Christian doctrine as spoken by God Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, concerning his anointed one, Jesus of Nazareth.

[Ever since the terrorist attacks on September 11th of 2001, many Muslims say they feel shunned because of cultural needs many restaurants in Hartford were guided as to which foods the convention goers could eat.]

Christian doctrine teaches us that we are to follow all doctrine of Jesus Christ and render unto God what is God's and unto Caesar what is Caesar's; we obey God first and foremost and praise Him for his gift of salvation provided by the finished work of the cross and render to government that which is not ungodly; we follow those laws of government which are morally correct according to the Word of God and do not kill infidels because they do not believe how that Jesus Christ died for our sins and rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, we believe and confess and he saves us by grace through faith without any works we have done.The gift of salvation is given to those who accept Jesus of Nazareth as Lord and Saviour, other religions demand work for salvation which is impossible as God only is good and Jesus is God the Christ. We are saved as Abraham was saved, we believe God and he accounts it to us for righteousness. Islam kills those who do not believe in their god and they use the ignorance of foolish liberals by playing the victim card, they are wolves in sheep's clothing.

Let them believe God and His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, who is alive and at the right hand of God the
Father Almighty and they too will be saved. Yet they continue to kill and murder Jews and Christians worldwide.

The Muslim excuse for not speaking up about the atrocities of their "brothers" is that they will be "looked down upon".
