Islamists need extra vetting

Reader comment on item: The Guantánamo Arrests – What Do They Mean?

When will the authorities understand that for a muslim believer , his loyalty to muslim umma is a religious duty demanded by Quran. Quran says being loyal to infidels is same as becoming infidel yourself , which is punishable by hellfire. There may be 4000+ soldiers in U.S. armed forces with muslim names( like me), but it it does not mean that they all are practising muslims believing 100% in quranic teachings. However, you would expect that muslim chaplains are believers of quranic teachings, and would be loyal to muslim umma and ready to help it in any way they can.
