I love your Web site and Krista's show. It is so insightful. I received this e-mail the same day I received the latest SOF "A New Voice for Islam." No doubt you have seen some of this going around. But if not, here is the attitude we must contend with. Please keep up the good work:

Can a good Muslim be a good American?
This is something I've wondered about for some time now: How and why do the Muslims hate us and everyone else so much? Doesn't their God teach them to love?

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 (Quran, 2:256) 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 (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 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.

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.

If you find yourself intellectually in agreement with the above statements, perhaps you will share this with your friends. The more who understand this, the better it will be for our country and our future. Pass it on, Fellow Americans. This war is bigger than we know or understand.
