Do you support the Taliban and its goals in Afghanistan? How do you interpret the statements in the Quran relating to Slaying the pagan and fighting the People of the Book until they are subdued? Or not to make friends with Christians and Jews?

The US is in Afghanistan and Iraq because Osama bin Ladin operated from Afghanistan and because America thought that Saddam Husein in Iraq was developing nuclear weapons to threathen us and the world. The US would not be in these two countries had it not been for Islamic terrorism and threats.

The US soldiers there are trying to allow democracies to succeed and grow in those countries. Why would any US Muslim feel they are there to kill Muslims and therefore fair game for killing under the Quran? They are there to kill the people trying to harm America, something you should support as an American if you are one.

I assume you are an American Muslim. It seems to me that any Muslim who believes he should act on Suras 9-5, 9-29, and 5-51 cannot be a loyal American. And if you do not believe you should do these actions directed in the Quran, even though your religion teaches that the Quran is the word of Allah, then why are you Muslim? Do you want to see this country become an Islamic nation under Sharia Law and regress to the level of other nations under Islam? Why did you come here if you are not a native American? I am looking for an honest answer from a Muslim who claims to be against the fundamental terrorists Islamists who are trying to destroyAmerica and the West.
