Please read this to the end........
This is the same question that many of us have been asking
for the past several years....this well spoken man says what
is on his heart beautifully....read, absorb and pass on....it's
time to get answers from those who claim their terrorist
members do not represent them...why are their leaders
not LOUDLY AND FIERCELY AND CONTINUOUSLY
condemning their visible murderous brethren.
By American Airlines Pilot - Captain John Maniscalco
"I've been trying to say this since 9-11 but you worry me.
I wish you didn't. I wish when I walked down the streets
of this country that I love, that your color and culture
still blended with the beautiful human landscape we enjoy
in this country. But you don't blend in anymore. I notice you,
and it worries me. I notice you because I can't help it anymore.
People from your homelands, professing to be Muslims, have
been attacking and killing my fellow citizens and our friends
for more than 20 years now. I don't fully understand their
grievances and hate but I know that nothing can justify the
inhumanity of their attacks.
On September 11, nineteen ARAB-MUSLIMS hijacked four
jetliners in my country. They cut the throats of women in
front of children and brutally stabbed to death others. They
took control of those planes and crashed them into buildings
killing thousands of proud fathers,loving sons, wise grandparents,
elegant daughters, best friends, favorite coaches, fearless public
servants, and children's mothers. The Palestinians Celebrated,
The Iraqis were overjoyed as was most of the Arab world.
So I notice you now. I don't want to be worried. I don't want
to be consumed by the same rage and hate and prejudice that
has destroyed the soul of these terrorists. But I need your help.
As a rational American, trying to protect my country and family
in an irrational and unsafe world, I must know how to tell the
difference between you, and the Arab/Muslim terrorist.
How do I differentiate between the true Arab/Muslim-Americans
and the Arab/Muslims in our communities who are attending our
schools, enjoying our parks, and living in OUR communities under
the protection of OUR constitution, while they plot the next attack
that will slaughter these same good neighbors and children? The
events of September 11th changed the answer. It is not my
responsibility to determine which of you embraces our great
country, with ALL of its religions, with ALL of its different
citizens, with all of its faults. It is time for every Arab/Muslim
in this country to determine it for me.
I want to know, I demand to know, and I have a right to
know whether or not you love America. Do you pledge
allegiance to its flag? Do you proudly display it in front of
your house, or on your car? Do you pray in your many daily
prayers that Allah will bless this nation, that He will protect
and prosper it? Or do you pray that Allah with destroy it in
one of your "Jihads"? Are you thankful for the freedom that
only this nation affords? A freedom that was paid for by the
blood of hundreds of thousands of patriots who gave their
lives for this country? Are you willing to preserve this freedom
by paying the ultimate sacrifice? Do you love America? If this
is your commitment, then I need YOU to start letting ME
know about it.
Your Muslim leaders in this nation should be flooding the
media at this time with hard facts on your faith, and what
hard actions you are taking as a community and as a
religion to protect the United States of America. Please,
no more benign overtures of regret for the death of the
innocent because I worry about who you regard as innocent.
No more benign overtures of condemnation for the
unprovoked attacks because I worry about what is
unprovoked to you. I am not interested in any more
sympathy...I am only interested in action. What will
you do for America - our great country -- at this time
of crisis, at this time of war?
I want to see Arab-Muslims waving the AMERICAN
flag in the streets. I want to hear you chanting "Allah
Bless America." I want to see young Arab/Muslim men
enlisting in the military. I want to see a commitment
of money, time, and emotion to the victims of this
butchering and to this nation as a whole The FBI has
a list of over 400 people they want to talk to regarding
the WTC attack. Many of these people live and
socialize in Muslim communities. You know them
You know where they are.
Hand them over to us, now! But I have seen little
even approaching this sort of action. Instead I have
seen an already closed and secretive community close
even tighter. You have disappeared from the streets.
You have posted armed security guards at your facilities.
You have threatened lawsuits. You have screamed for
protection from reprisals.
The very few Arab/Muslim representatives that HAVE
appeared in the media were defensive and equivocating.
They seemed more concerned with making sure that the
United States proves who was responsible before taking
action. They seemed more concerned with protecting
their fellow Muslims from violence directed towards them
in the United States and abroad than they did with
supporting our country and denouncing "leaders" like
Khadafi, Hussein, Farrakhan, and Arafat. If the true
teachings of Islam proclaim tolerance and peace and
love for all people then I want chapter and verse from
the Koran and statements from popular Muslim leaders
to back it up. What good is it if the teachings in the
Koran are good and pure and true when your "leaders"
are teaching fanatical interpretations, terrorism,
It matters little how good Islam SHOULD BE if large
numbers of the world's Muslims interpret the teachings of
Mohammed incorrectly and adhere to a degenerative form
of the religion. A form that has been demonstrated to us
over and over again. A form whose structure is built
upon a foundation of violence, death, and suicide. A form
whose members are recruited from the prisons around the
world. A form whose members (some as young as five
years old) are seen day after day, week in and week out,
year after year, marching in the streets around the world,
burning effigies of our presidents, burning the American
flag, shooting weapons into the air. A form whose members
convert from a peaceful religion, only to take up arms against
the great United States of America, the country of their birth.
A form whose rules are so twisted, that their traveling members
refuse to show their faces at airport security checkpoints,
in the name of Islam.
Do you and your fellow Muslims hate us because our women
proudly show their faces in public rather than cover up like
a shameful whore? Do you and your fellow Muslims hate us
because we drink wine with dinner, or celebrate Christmas?
Do you and your fellow Muslims hate us because we have
befriended Israel, the ONLY civilized democratic nation in the
entire Middle East?
And if you and your fellow Muslims hate us, then why in
the world are you even here? Are you here to take our money?
Are you here to undermine our peace and stability? Are you
here to destroy us? If so, I want you to leave. I want you to go
back to your desert sandpit where women are treated like rats
and dogs. I want you to take your religion, your friends, and
your family back to your Islamic extremists, and STAY
We will NEVER give in to your influence, your retarded
mentality, your twisted, violent, intolerant religion. We
will NEVER allow the attacks of September 11, or any
others for that matter, to take away that which is so
precious to us: Our rights under the greatest constitution
in the world. I want to know where every Arab/Muslim
in this country stands and I think it is my right and the
right of every true citizen of this county to demand it.
A right paid for by the blood of thousands of my brothers
and sisters who died protecting the very constitution that is
protecting you and your family. I am pleading with you to
let me know. I want you here as my brother, my neighbor,
my friend, as a fellow American. But there can be no gray
areas or ambivalence regarding your allegiance and it is up
to YOU, to show ME, where YOU stand." "Until
then. you worry me" ""
LET'S COVER THE COUNTRY WITH THIS ONE!
