(1) E pluribis unum - "from many one," the American motto. I DO HOPE AND PRAY THAT HE WILL SEE THE CONVERSE OF THIS QUOTE 'FROM ONE, MANY' COME TRUE FOR HIM AS HE SEES MANY GOOD BRAVE MUSLIMS SEE IT AS THEIR RELIGIOUS DUTY TO JOIN HIM AND OTHERS LIKE HIM IN PROTESTING AGAINST THEIR FELLOW RELIGIONISTS WHO CARRY ALLAH'S NAME IN VAIN AND BRING DISGRACE UPON ISLAM AND THE KORAN AS THEY FLY IN THE FACE OF ITS PEACEFUL BASIC PRECEPTS BY TAKING TOO LITERALLY SOME OF ITS MORE AGGRESSIVE AND VIOLENT EXPRESSIONS.
