during his Cairo speech, said:
“I know, too, that Islam has always been a part
of America ‘s story.”
Dear Mr. Obama:
Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims
first landed? Funny, I thought they were
Native American Indians.
Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving
day? Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and
Native American Indians.
show me one Muslim signature on the United
of Independence ?
Muslims fight for this country’s freedom from
England ? No.
Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the
slaves in America ? No, they did
not. In fact, Muslims to this day are
still the largest traffickers in human
slavery.. Your own half brother, a devout
Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even
though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black
Muslims as “pug nosed slaves.” Says a lot
of what the Muslim world really thinks of your
family’s “rich Islamic heritage,” doesn’t it Mr.
Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this
country? Not present.
no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking
side by side with Martin Luther King, Jr. or
helping to advance the cause of Civil
Muslims during this country’s Woman’s Suffrage
era? Again, not present. In fact,
devout Muslims demand that women are subservient
to men in the Islamic culture. So much so,
that often they are beaten for not wearing the
‘hajib’ or for talking to a man who is not a
direct family member or their husband.
Yep, the Muslims are all for women’s rights,
Muslims during World War II? They were
aligned with Adolf Hitler. The Muslim
grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler,
reviewed the troops and accepted support from
the Nazi’s in killing Jews.
Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th,
2001? If they weren’t flying planes into
the World Trade Center , the Pentagon or a field
in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on
our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle
East . No one can dispute the pictures
shown from all parts of the Muslim world
celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other
cable news networks that day. Strangely,
the very “moderate” Muslims who’s asses you bent
over backwards to kiss in Cairo , Egypt on June
4th were stone cold silent post 9-11. To
many Americans, their silence has meant approval
for the acts of that day.
And THAT, Mr.
Obama, is the “rich heritage” Muslims have here
in America ..
Oh, I’m sorry, I
forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates.
They were Muslim.
And now we can
add November 5, 2009 – the slaughter of American
soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major who is a
doctor and a psychiatrist who was supposed to be
counseling soldiers returning from battle in
Iraq and Afghanistan ..
That, Mr. Obama
is the “Muslim heritage” in America
I would hope that anyone who reads my poetry understands that I write what comes to my mind and it doesn't mean I'm the reality of the words. I mean that just because I write about alcoholism does not mean I am the character in the poems. I write about those I've known and those I know and a very wide grouping that is of sinners and saints, those who know who and where they are going and those who are completely lost. I am empathic. I write in the first person because I feel the reality of what I am writing about. Like Dean Martin pretending to be drunk while performing I am not what it may seem. Just a thought as I know some out there who read what I write see the words and not the art or the understanding of the problem I am commenting on, nor do they understand that the comment is for the purpose of illustration and not my own personal reality.
