in response to reader comment: Muslims in the military

Mike Draine, you seem to be very poor minded when it comes to making points. You were asking how many Muslims are there in the USA military. Here is how we answer you (I actually prefer we than I, I respect my self in the French way):

Primo, you need to know that among US military deployment policies there is something called the Human Factor -and here you need to get some strategic studies courses to best savour this comment-. Human Factor is important in planing a Military Offensive. Usually, Generals do send send soldiers of the to ( carry offensives against a group sharing similar religious believes. Example: In Serbia, a huge number of soldiers sent from North America were Muslims and non-Christians and non-Orthodox Christians. Highly ranked personnel do not apply in this policy.

Secondo, before you put a question next time, I advise you to brain storm the question and put it on yourself from a different stand point because the asked person may reverse it and ask you the same thing, and finally unveil your weakness. Sorry for being a bit philosophical here, but here is a clear question point in reverse:

Your question point was the fact that you do not see many faces of Muslim soldiers.
I can reverse it and ask you: How many Jewish faces can you show us !! how many Sikh faces can you show us!! and if you do show us something, you need to give me a proportional participation rate based on the whole number of that community in the USA. so play with this question to train your intelect and get back to me with some valid points.

Sidda,

You say Muslims of America`s only allegiance is to Allah and can not be to the USA. That is a great insult to other religions..it is interesting how you portray other religions as kids stories where allegiance is not an issue..I would like a Christian to answer you. What you did Sidda is that you confirmed Islam to be a true religion while others are old songs, you gave an other credit to Islam..Muslims owe you one here..
Submitting....
