    Subj: Fw: Ever been to a Muslim hospital?
    Ever been to a Muslim hospital?
    Have you ever been to a Muslim hospital, heard a Muslim orchestra, seen a Muslim band march in a parade, witnessed a Muslim charity, shaken hands with a Muslim Girl Scout, seen a Muslim Candy Striper, or seen a Muslim do anything that contributes positively to the American way of life ????
    The answer is no, you did not. Just ask yourself WHY ?

    Barack Obama, during his Cairo speech, said:
    "I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of
    America 's history."

    Dear Mr. Obama:

    Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed? Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.

    Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day? Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.

    Can you show me one Muslim signature on the United States Constitution?
    Declaration of Independence ? Bill of Rights?
    Didn't think so.
    Did Muslims fight for this country's freedom from England? No.
    Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America ? No, they did not. In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery. Your own half-brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as "pug nosed slaves." Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of your family's "rich Islamic heritage," doesn't it Mr. Obama?
    Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country? Not present.
    There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by side with Martin Luther King, Jr. or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.
    Where were Muslims during this country's Woman's Suffrage era? Again, not present. In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are subservient to men in the Islamic culture. So much so, that often they are beaten for not wearing the 'hajib' or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their husband. Yep, the Muslims are all for women's rights, aren't they?
    Where were Muslims during World War II? They were aligned with Adolf Hitler. The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops, and accepted support from the Nazi's in killing Jews.
    Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001? If they weren't flying planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, or a field in Pennsylvania killing more than 3,000 citizens on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East.
    No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news network’s that day. Strangely, the very "moderate" Muslims who's asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo, Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11. To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.
    And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the "rich heritage" Muslims have here in America.
    Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates.
    They were Muslim.
    And now we can add November 5, 2009 - the slaughter of American soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major who is a doctor and a psychiatrist who was supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan and 2012 when these peaceful religious believers invaded our embassies – American soil, by the way – and killed our ambassador.
    That, Mr. Obama is the "Muslim heritage" in America.
    Be sure to SEND IT TO ALL.
    Muslim Heritage, my Ass. If you can't find time to share this message, consider yourself part of the problem!

    My response to the above

    A consideration of "Muslim Heritage" can be obtained by reading a bit of history other than that of a brutal, genocidal, exploitative Western European ethic and ethnicity.
    For several centuries the Islamic culture civilization (inclusive, though not specifically
    due to) its religion . . . was the most advanced in the world. A brief web-search for
    ten or fifteen minutes might shed light on a subject that some would black-out from
    the standpoint of prejudice even unto hatred of a whole heritage rather than the few
    representatives who committ atrocities.
    As for "heritage", how about our "rich Jewish heritage"?
    Where were the Jews when ,. . . . . etc. etc. etc. Weren't nothin' kosher on that first
    T-day table. How many orthodox or even reformed shared the platform with M. L. King?
    Regarding Hitler, in the mid 1930s when Einstein first came to Princeton, among the
    elite students of that college (and others of the population too), of the two most famous
    and admired people in the world, Hitler came first and Einstein second. (realize that
    this was prior to any holocaust activity and the while, Hiter's administration had brought
    Germany's economy out of abject Versailles T. ruination).
    This is not to endorse Islam. Far from it. But one should realize the profound heritage
    in science, math, and more. And even the early 20th century fixation on "The Shiek of
    Araby" . . . and "Istanbul was Constantinople .. ." and other songs . . . the popu-
    larity of "Tales of Arabian Nights", Sheherezade, Alladin. and on and on . . . . .still
    is part of our heritage.
    As for a "functional heritage" (contemporary science, economics) to disregard the
    operant-interface of our country with a multitude of Muslim nations and emirates is to
    be blind to the "heritage-of-collaboration" in globalism.

    Notice that the article is anti-arab but uses arabic numbers. It also fails to mention the arabs who died in the trade center attack.
