Fellow Americans’ suspicions frustrate US Muslims

NEW YORK (AP) - Nine years of denouncing terrorism, of praying side-by-side with Jews and Christians, of insisting “I’m American, too.” None of it could stop a season of hate against Muslims that made for an especially fraught Sept. 11. Now, Muslims are asking why their efforts to be accepted in the United States have been so easily thwarted.

“We have nothing to apologize for, we have nothing to fear, we have nothing to be ashamed of, we have nothing that we’re guilty of - but we need to be out there and we need to express this,” said Imam Mohammed Ibn Faqih in a sermon at the Islamic Institute of Orange County in Anaheim, Calif., the day before the 9/11 anniversary.

There is no simple way for American Muslims to move forward.

Images of violence overseas in the name of Islam have come to define the faith for many non-Muslims at home. The U.S. remains at war in Afghanistan, and although America has formally declared an end to its combat operations in Iraq, U.S. troops there continue to fight alongside Iraqi forces.

Fellow Americans’ suspicions frustrate US Muslims

As some have said in the comments section on this blog; Islam is as Islam does.

Where are all those peaceful, non-radical, all-American Muslims? Where are they? Why are they not standing, in one large and loud group, denouncing the EVIL that IS Islam? Why are they not denouncing the Quran, the Islamic version of the bible? And it’s passages that call for the DEATH of all that don’t submit to Islam?

They want us to believe that they are this *Religion of Peace*, but they are NOT.

Within the U.S., domestic terror has become a greater threat, while ignorance about what Islam teaches is widespread. More than half of respondents in a recent poll by the Pew Forum for Religion & Public Life said they knew little or nothing about the Muslim faith.

That’s it, simple ignorance. Ignorance on OUR part about what Islam teaches, about what Islam is, what it does and how it goes about it’s own brand of self promotion. Submit or DIE!

Muslims must think no one can read their filthy writings other than them. Once again I ask you, what part of religion OR peace do these passages from the Quran represent?

�? Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them (47:4)
�? The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them (8:65)
�? Muslims must not take the infidels as friends (3:28)
�? Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an (8:12)
�? Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorize the infidels (8:60)
�? Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them (2:191)
�? Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood (9:123)
�? When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them (9:5)
�? Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax (9:29)
�? Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable (3:85)
�? The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them (9:30)
�? Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam. (5:33)
�? The infidels are unclean; do not let them into a mosque (9:28)
�? Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies (22:19)

Nothing says peace and love to me like the one way rants and teachings of a goat loving pervert and pedophile that wants to kill any and all that don’t subscribe to his thinking.

In recent months, mosques in Tennessee, California, New York and elsewhere have been shot at and vandalized. Threatening messages were left at one mosque. A Florida pastor caused a global uproar with his ultimately unfulfilled threat to make a bonfire of Qurans on Sept. 11.

Many Jewish, Roman Catholic, mainline Protestant, evangelical, atheist and other groups have responded with an outpouring of support for Muslims, but suspicion remains high among many Americans.
