    Interesting, I came across this in a comment section of a blog. It makes sense.

    Something to ponder…Can a Muslim be a real American?

    In light of the murders at Ft. Hood by a Muslim Officer (who had sworn to defend the people, our Constitution and the United States ) this article becomes more timely and real than ever;

    Can a good Muslim be a good American?

    I sent that question to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years. The following is his reply:

    Theologically – no. Because his allegiance is to Allah, the moon god of Arabia

    Religiously – no. Because no other religion is accepted by his Allah except Islam.

    Scripturally – no. Because his allegiance is to the five pillars of Islam and the Quran (Koran).

    Geographically – no. Because his allegiance is to Mecca , to which he turns in prayer five times a day.

    Socially – no. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.

    Politically – no. Because he must submit to the mullah (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and Destruction of America, the great Satan.

    Domestically – no. Because he is instructed to marry four women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him.

    Intellectually – no. Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.

    Philosophically – no. Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran do not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.

    Spiritually – no. Because when we declare “one nation under God,” the Christian’s God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in The Quran’s 99 excellent names.

    Our government says yes, given the number of people at my own company who are American citizens and have clearances at least as high as my own.

    Really?
    I know there are some out there with clearances, but we have none here. I know a guy who couldn't get one, he was a very Americanized Iranian, but his sister still lived in Iran...no clearance.

    A lot of those can be applied to Christians as well.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.

    They have to be citizens, and they are. For some intel agency clearances, foreign family is a problem, but the IC itself is working on changing that.

    Too true. By that set of criteria there are some Christian groups that wouldn't make the grade (although for somewhat different reasons in a few cases).

    The problem with Islam is that it was well on the way to becoming a contemporary faith when it was hijacked by purists who took it back to the 6th century.

    Can educated Muslims find a middle road between the demands of faith and the demands of citizenship? You bet and thousands do here. It's that 10% who are the problem.

    I notice the OP didn't link us to the blog.

    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad
