Dear Ms. Debbie T.,

I wish I could put this in better terms to you, but I believe it is Americans such as yourself with your closed mentality that are poster-children for "the enemy". Your actions and attitude towards 'all' muslims is what 'they' sell to their followers. All I want to say to you is that every 4th person on the planet is a muslim and you can't just label them all as terrorists. Most of the fight against Islamic extremists is fought with the help of muslim allies. Majority of the people working in the American intelligence circles are arabs and other muslims serving their country. Though of no significance, I am a muslim, an American soldier for the past 8 years and have fought in Afghanistan under the same stars and stripes that many of your relatives and neighbors might be doing now.

Our President is everyone's president, not just for a particular faith. Your attitude isn't that different for some of the people in this country not too long ago who didn't think of Blacks as Americans.

The way I see it, history comes in waves and the majority of burden today is brought upon muslim extremists. It used to be "Red Russians" and before that it were the "Japs" who were put in concentration camps. Would you like to repeat such aweful history? Once this wave is past and becomes another chapter of history, you might end up finding yourself burdened by your comments fueled by ignorance and perhaps prejudice.

If you ever would like to know about the real Islam, feel free to contact. You can contact me with disagreements etc. anytime.
