FW: Can Muslims be good Americans? (Updated again: Now with Bonus Poem!)

"I love your website. This came from my right-wing mom." -Anon

Well. Here we go again old pal. This forward is now a candidate for the right wing literary canon and has mad a couple of appearances in various versions: Here with a MRWD added "Can Catholics be good Americans?" and here with a tidy Obama-Clinton closer.

This latest version has proud pictures and a poetic (and totally authentic) "peace = war" letter from Iraq. You may want to grab a box of tissues (and maybe a large wooden cross and some kerosene).

Happy Father's Day! -m

----------------------- begin forward --------------------------


This is very interesting and we all need to read it from start to Finish and send it on to anyone who will read it. Maybe this is why our American Muslims are so quiet and not speaking out about any atrocities. Can a good Muslim be a good American? This question was forwarded 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 (Quran, 2:256)(Koran)

Scripturally - no. . . Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran.

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 mullahs (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 (Quran 4:34)

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 does 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.

Therefore, after much study and deliberation....
Perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. - - - They obviously cannot be both 'good' Muslims and good Americans.

Call it what you wish it's still the truth. You had better believe it. The more who understand this, the better it will be for our country and our future. The religious war is bigger than we know or understand. . ...

And Barack Hussein Obama, a Muslim, wants to be our President? You have GOT to be kidding! Wake up America !

Obama even says if he wins the election, he will be sworn in on the Quran---not a Bible!

Footnote: He was sworn in on the Quran for his current office and he refuses to pledge allegiance to the United States or put his hand over his heart when the National Anthem is played! The Muslims have said they will destroy us from within. Hello! Having a Muslim president would seem to fit the bill! Will you trust this man with our national secrets?

Please don't delete this until you send
It on,
Let's send it around the world.

This is a poem being sent from a Marine
To his Dad.
For those who take the time
To read it,
you'll see a letter from him to
His dad at the bottom.
It makes you truly
for not only the Marines, but
ALL of our troops.


We all came together,
Both young and old
To fight for our freedom,
To stand and be bold.

In the midst of all evil,
We stand our ground,
And we protect our country
From all terror around.

Peace and not war,
Is what some people say.
But I'll give my life,
So you can live the American way.

I give you the right
<>To talk of your peace.
To stand in your groups,
And protest in our streets.

But still I fight on,
I don't bitch, I don't whine.
I'm just one of the people
Who is doing your time.

I'm harder than nails,
Stronger than any machine.
I'm the immortal soldier,
I'm a U.S. MARINE!

So stand in my shoes,
And leave from your home.
Fight for the people who hate you,
With the protests they 've shown.
Fight for the stranger,
Fight for the young.
So they all may have,
The greatest freedom you've won

Fight for the sick,
Fight for the poor
Fight for the cripple,
Who lives next door.

But when your time comes,
Do what I've done.
For if you stand up for freedom,
You'll stand when the fight's done

Hey Dad,
Do me a favor and label this 'The Marine' and send it to everybody on your email list . Even leave this letter in it. I want this rolling all over the US ;I want every home reading it. Every eye seeing it. And every heart to feel it. So can you please send this for me? I would but my email time isn't that long and I don't have much time anyway.
You know what Dad? I wondered what it would be like to truly understand what JFK said in His inaugural speech. 'When the time comes to lay down my life for my country, I do not cower from this responsibility. I welcome it.' Well, now I know. And I do. Dad, I welcome the opportunity to do what I do. Even though I have left behind a beautiful wife, and I will miss the birth of our first born child, I would do it 70 times over to fight for the place that God has made for my home . I love you all and I miss you very much. I wish I could be there when Sandi has our baby, but tell her that I love her, and Lord willing, I will be coming home soon. Give Mom a great big hug from me and give one to yourself too.

1. Of all the delicious lines in that forward, the "Intellectually, no..." line was the tastiest. Right, the Constitution was almost plagarized right out of the Bible.

2. Why do Marines driven to poetry all favor an ABAB rhyme scheme and have a uniformly poor grasp of rhythm? And they all seem to have a very romanticized view of their fight.

3. That letter; I am suspicious.

Good grief... are all these wingnut emails generated in some new program called "Visual Disturbance Typesetting 1.0"?

My guess is, these are the same people who put really busy wallpaper up, then accent it with some sort of wallpaper border around the top, then put up some elaborate drapes with gold spray painted hardware, and then put really ornate furniture in the middle of it all. Then they say things like, "I like a classy looking living room".

Yup, nothing says classy like having every Elvis memorial plate from the Franklin Mint hanging along the entryway...
