On June 6th, 2009 at the University of Cairo, President Obama made the statement while lauding Islam, "I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America's history." That got me thinking and looking as I wasn't aware that this was so. I can find no evidence this is even close to being true. So I ask you, have you ever seen a Muslim Hospital? Have you ever hear a Muslim Orchestra? Have you ever seen a Muslim Band march in a parade? How about a Muslim Charity, ever seen or heard of one? Maybe you have seen a Muslim Girl Scout. Maybe I have lived a sheltered life, but I have never seen any of these.
As to History, were there Muslims here to meet the Pilgrims? I can't find a single Muslim signature on the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence. Did any Muslims fight for our Countries freedom from England? How about the Civil War to free the slaves? I don't think so. In fact to this day Muslims are the biggest traffickers in human slavery. I have never seen any news account of Muslims marching with Dr. Martin Luther King or any other activities to advance the civil rights of all in this Country. How about Muslim presence during the Woman's Suffrage movement? To the contrary devout Muslims demand women to be inferior to men.
How about WWII? The Muslim mufti met with Hitler and accepted support from the Nazi's in killing Jews. Where were the Muslims on 9/11/2001? That's easy. They were flying planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania killing upward of 3000 innocent people. They were in the Middle East rejoicing these heinous acts. Coincidently, the very Muslim Obama was coddling in Egypt in 2009 were deafeningly silent on 9/11.
How about Ft. Hood, Boston, San Bernadino and Chattanooga, et al? I don't know of many who would consider this a rich and desirable heritage of Muslims in America.
As an interesting aside to the peaceful Islamic traditions:
Quran 5:33...."The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and his messenger is execution by beheading or crucifixion......."
Quran 8:12...."I will instill terror into the hearts of unbelievers. Smite ye above their necks and smite all and smite all their finger tips off."
Quran 47"4 Therefore, when you meet the unbelievers, stricke off their heads..."
"Islam does not mean peace.....Islam is submission." Anjem Choudary 2012
