Jan: Walk down most streets or shopping malls in the U.S. and you will see many Islamic women wearing Head scarfs, not Burkas. The women in this country are allowed more freedom than other country because we have not oppressed free speech or rights here. I have belonged to Middle East Forum for about 4 years now, as well as many other organizations who teach Islam, and the Koran. Believe me, I am not naive at all, I understand the Koran, the passages, and what the women go through to be respectable. Dr. Waffa Sultan has been interviewed on Dr. Pipes website and she is a wealth of knowledge. I also understand what stealth Jihad is, and the Doctrine of Taqiyya, Deception vis-a-vis-infidels.

There are many professors who teach the Koran, and many Americans know all about the passages of Sura and what they mean. Many of us are wiser than Muslims around the world realize. I regret that so many people have been forced to live under oppression, this only serves to frustrate people of all races and denies them from using their God-given talents. There are also many mosques in America and Muslims are allowed to worship in the way they are accustomed. They have come to America and live freely, but we do not live by Sharia Law here, We live by our Constitution, Sharia Law is not fair at all to women, and believe me many I have spoken to do not want to live under it either, thats why they came to America. Moderate Muslims like working in a nation where they are free to be prosperous, raise their families, and live peaceful lives.

If you are speaking of the current administration putting actions into place that are affecting Iran, Iraq, Turkey,, Egypt, Syria, and Lebanon, I want to say that I do not agree with Obama's invasion of Libya. I think he is only helping the Muslim brotherhood get a foothold in these countries, and overthrowing Mubarak. The U.S. also helped Kuwaitt when Tyrants Sadam Hussein and Sons, started invading Kuwait and blowing up oil fields. Wherever there are earthquakes, Tsunamis, and other disasters, the United States is there to help. I myself have donated a lot of money to help the Haitain people, Japan, and other countries in need. Many Christians donate time, efforts, supplies and money to help the victims all over the world....We are always trying to help the needy. I love my country and will never apologize for Freedom, Humanitarian efforts, and reaching out to others.
