Absolutely false. The early Muslim presence in America was limited to slaves, and most of them converted to Christianity. Muslims didn't start immigrating until the mid 1800s, and the first mosque in this country wasn't even built until the early 1900s -- they had maybe a couple dozen by the 1950s.
The greatest influence Islam had on the forming of this country was as our enemies in the Barbary pirates.
“my muslim faith...”
Muslims rewrite history to fit their needs. Here, establishing that America was a muslime nation from the start is important because it turns America into a place muslimes have a religious obligation to re-conquer.
Pure jihadist doctrine. And yes, I’m saying obastard is a jihadist. (Not all jihad uses bombs, at least at first. There is also political and legal jihad.) That is why he says these things.
