As a Christian, I admit that my faith is my first and highest priority. My loyalty to my country, as strong as it is, takes a back seat to my commitment to Christ. So in that respect, I understand that a Muslim would be devoted to his faith. However, there is one major difference. My faith is compatible with my loyalty to the United States.
Based on what you are about to read, the same cannot be said for many American Muslims regarding their faith. It is not compatible with loyalty to America. I am not stating that all Muslims in this nation cannot be trusted, but I am saying that if they live out what the Koran teaches, loyalty to America is questionable, to say the least.
Read from Atlas Shrugs:
US Muslim Leaders Forbid Muslims in America from Sending Food, Aid to US Troops
"There is no dual loyalty, there can only be one loyalty. And the only radicals are those who wish to reform Islam. That is the reality. You can avoid that, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding it.
It will be interesting to have a look at the figures of how much Muslims have given/raised for our troops vs how much went ..........to the enemy.
I look forward to the millions of American Muslims who take to the streets decrying this fatwa. (/sarc tag off)

'Islamic jurists decree giving soldiers food 'not permissible'
American Muslims are banned from helping U.S. soldiers deployed in Afghanistan, Iraq and other "Muslim lands," according to a shocking fatwa, or religious decree, recently issued by American-based Islamic jurists.
One of the most respected Islamic law authorities in America has decreed it is "not permissible" for even Muslims who are citizens of America to send food or other aid to American troops serving in those Muslim countries.
The Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America, or AMJA, ruled it is a "sin" to help the U.S. military in its multi-front war on terror. AMJA delivered the ruling through its online "fatwa bank":
"Q: Is it permissible to participate in taking food to the American and foreign soldiers working in Muslim lands?"
"A: That would not be permissible, for that would be helping others in sin and transgression."
Critics warn that such anti-military views by Muslim scholars have translated into homegrown violence against American soldiers.
Another American cleric, Anwar Awlaki, has decreed that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are crimes against Muslims and has warned fellow Muslim Americans not to serve in the U.S. military or support U.S. military efforts in any way. Recently, he has issued fatwas declaring U.S. troops and military bases open target for jihad.'"
