Reader comment on item: Muslim Soldiers in the West, Criticized by their Communities
in response to reader comment: I am a muslim soldier in US Army

Wow man...

very strong article and very interesting point of view. Be true to yourself and true to your elders, peers, family etc. Help the poor, and defend the honor of your country. Help spread tolerance and cultural understanding

That is the most Islamic thing you could do brother. I know it is hard to sometimes feel under scrutiny by both Muslims and non-Muslims given your position

But as a soldier, remember this. With important wars in Muslim countries, you can serve as a cultural bridge between the Iraqis/Afghans and the US army so as to promote understanding.

I wish you luck, and hope I can get in touch with you, I would love to chat about your experiences

Submitting....
