You've said: "Being American I have to hide it from every Muslim in my community..." "On the other hand non-Muslims (like my neighbors) see my house as Muslim and not American..." "On the other hand only a handful of people in my Unit know I'm Muslim. Only a handful of non-Muslims know I'm military..." " You want to know how Abu Graib happened? Join todays military! Hatred for the "Hajji's" as, we are fondly called, is everywhere..." "The biggest revelation after 9/11 for the Muslims in America that you heard over in over was "man you mean to tell me they didn't know?" Yea, scary, I know..." "Yes it is Hell to serve my country in which I love, as a Muslim, and where my family has lived in before the British came here..."

Al Amreeke IT IS MY DEVOUT PRAYER, that this tale of yours was meant to be apocryphal. If even 1/2 of it is true, I believe YOU ARE A SERIOUS SECURITY RISK, and wonder at the lunatic institutional "pc" which enabled you to be hired or maintained in the US military. Your anger and adoption of all the myths and "charges" laid against America and Americans are not even slightly masked. "Yes it is Hell to serve my country in which I love, as a Muslim... " A "Military Intelligence Officer?" If you served your "country which [you] love..." AS AN AMERICAN, I'd feel a hell of a lot more comfortable about having a YOU representing ME in those interrogations. mariana
