What we want Muslims to do in America

The best way for Muslims to integrate into mainstream America is to avoid becoming ghetto-ized with their own neighborhoods, and their own schools and mosques staffed by Saudi imans. You need to mix with Americans, contrary to the dictates of your religion. ... You need to face up to the fact that your religion is incompatible with American democracy. You need to abandon the idea of replacing our Constitution with Sharia law, and you need to yell it forcefully from the top of your mosques, so we can hear you. You need to understand that we are on to Taqiyya and Kitman, and that makes little that you say have any credibility. In America we respect honesty, and liars are no better that thieves. So you have a big hurdle to overcome - you are not credible.

You must reject Saudi funding and Saudi imans and the plethora of organizations the Saudis have here in America. Their message is hatred for our country and for Israel. They support terrorists throughout the world. You cannot accede to their message and the message of America.

You are residing in what your religion calls Dar-al-Harb, among Infidels, who your religion demands that you either subjugate or kill. Please do not be offended if we find fault with those choices. Please do not find fault with us if we smile back, but carry a big stick.

Note that none of my suggestions to Muslims are racist. You can be any race. It is the religion that is the problem. It is a problem for you, a problem for me, and a problem for all infidel Americans.

You or your parents chose to come here and we, trusting, let you in. If you do not like the way we do things, the door swings both ways. But if you stay, forget about imposing Sharia law. That ain't gonna happen. ... You have to swear to uphold the Constitution, while your religion demands you overthrow it. We do not tolerate Taqiyya and Kitman in our political system and ferret it out whenever it occurs.. If you do not like that, you should pack up and return to Dar-al-Islam, where you will be much happier.
