I have generally stayed out of all the Muslim threads. I walk a fine line because I understand the demographics, politics, and religious tenets and
traditions that have brought about the heavily Conservative Islamic world. It is very easy to draw a straight line from Islamic Conservatism to
Islamic Extremism. This has been shown in poll after poll. The cultural differences that exist between Western Muslims and Middle Eastern Muslims are
just as pronounced as the ground is from the sky. The Islamic Conservative is the majority of the Middle Eastern world and it is up to you to
understand the difference in culture, and what is acceptable and not acceptable when it comes to terrorism and violence within Political Islam.
I have deployed to combat in an Islamic country that suffered from the Conservative Islamic extremism that we see regardless of Sect. I have seen
first hand who the real victims are of this terrorism. I have been on various rescue mission to recover Afghan civilians and soldiers who were wounded
by the Taliban and their foreign compatriots. I have also had the pleasure to interact with Afghan civilians and soldiers. Back home I have Muslims
who serve in my formation and they are excellent soldiers. In my home town I have a lot of Iranian and Syrian friends who attend the Truckee Islamic
Center. They are good people who care about the community and are actively involved.
I am an ardent critic of Islam...and Christianity, and Judaism, and just about every religion that wants to put my soul in a box and tell me their way
is the only way to a God none of us could possibly understand.
My experience, my research, Muslims here on ATS, and my own friends have proven to me beyond a shadow of a doubt that peaceful Muslims exist. The
notion that they should apologize to bigots for every act of terrorism committed in the name of their shared religion is disgusting to me. It is
repugnant to my sense of individualism, and what is proposed for dealing with
"The Muslim Problem"
disgusting and antithetical to who we are as a nation.
For this American F'ing Soldier, whose heritage as a warrior goes back to the First World War, and immortalized in the Second World War, who fought
against the Tyranny that brought us the atrocities against hundreds of millions of people, I find you offensive. I find you to be source of tyranny.
Don't make me your enemy. I will fight you. You will not lead innocent people to camps, put them on trains, deport them for practicing their
Constitutionally protected religion. I will pick up my Constitutionally protected arms and I will destroy you if you cross that line. Do not turn our
nation into the evil we once fought. There will be no forgiveness from God for sins so profane.
You have been warned.
