Subject: Support for Implementing Democracy and Freedom in the Middle East to Prevent Future Terrorism
Dear Mr. President:
We are writing to you to offer our insights, expertise, and support in helping to establish a democracy in place of the former social dictatorship in Iraq, with the hope that the God given right to self-determination will take root and spread throughout the entire Islamic World.
Submission.org is a group of like-minded individuals who have come together to worship God, and only God. We follow the religion of Adam, Noah and Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad.
A Submitter is defined as a person who submits to the will of God. Submission describes one's devotion to God alone. This is the First Commandment in all the scriptures, including the Old Testament, the New Testament and the Final Testament (The Quran).
Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is One God!
Therefore you shall worship the Lord !
with all your heart,
with all your soul,
with all your mind,
and with all your strength.
(Deuteronomy 6:4-5, Mark 12:29-30, Quran 3:18)
Surely, those who believe,
those who are Jewish, the Christians, and the converts; anyone who
(1) believes in GOD, and
(2) believes in the Last Day, and
(3) leads a righteous life,
will receive their recompense from their Lord.
They have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve. (Quran 2:62, 5:69)
Submitters do not belong to any sect since the Quran rejects sects in religion. Although over 14 centuries many sects have emerged in "Islam", the Quran is still universally accepted across all denominations of Islam. The differences between various sects in the "Muslim" world are due to man-made doctrines and innovations in religion. Despite the fact that the Quran is universally accepted among "Muslims", it is ignored by the majority of its followers. The acts of terror and violence that continue are the result of man-made dogma, which misinterprets the true teachings of the Quran. We support America's war on terrorism. We are against political or religious leaders who would promote terrorist ideas and activities. We support the separation of church and state, believing that all people should be free to worship, or abstain from worship, as they choose. We believe in the principles of democracy as outlined in The Declaration of Independence; The Constitution; and The Bill of Rights. In essence, we believe that the United States of America adheres to more principles outlined by the Quran than any government in existence in the Muslim world today. What we seek and pray for is not just a mere reformation of Islam, but a return to the values put forth in the Quran and the elimination of oppression and tyranny currently practiced in the so-called "Islamic" regimes in place today.
We invite you to learn about true Islam (Submission) at http://www..submission.org. We have the best English translation of the Quran on our web site, available in download format. We have a number of related articles that define our position on democracy, terrorism, jihad, freedom, and peace. We make a distinction between Islam and radical Muslims, who do not represent Islam. We are pleased to see that you have nominated Daniel Pipes to the board of the U.S. Institute of Peace. Dr. Pipes has made the clear distinction between radical Muslims or Islamists, and Islam.
The restoration of Islam has begun in the USA because of the freedoms afforded in a democracy, specifically in the United States of America. Introducing democracy into a previously closed society will be challenging and difficult at times. With God's help, we offer our support and expertise to your administration in the reconstruction of Iraq, Afghanistan, and God willing, the rest of the Islamic World.
In God We Trust.
