The Loyal Muslim

What does the  Religion of Peace  Teach About… Muslim Loyalty to Non-Muslim Governments?

Muslim (19:4294) - When you meet your enemies who are polytheists [Christians], invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them … If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them”

American Muslims Debate Loyalty to America

Eileen F. Toplansky/American Thinker

American Muslims are debating key questions of loyalty to America, a debate in which the stakes could not be higher. Alarmingly, “no fewer than four United States citizens and a permanent U.S. resident have risen to senior leadership posts within al-Qaeda,” according to an Investors Business Daily editorial by Paul Sperry. Thus, “five English-speaking leaders are actively planning or facilitating attacks against their countrymen, while recruiting and radicalizing other American turncoats to carry them out.”
The implications of this are frightening.  No longer is America at war with a foreign enemy. The enemy is here — an enemy who understands how “America works, having lived here for decades.” Thus, fellow Americans are recruited by the enemy. These traitors are “fed by a native Muslim population once believed [to be] … nonthreatening.” Is this an aberration, or does Islam condone and promote this disloyalty?
Special Dispatch No. 3162, published on August 12, 2010 by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), helps to shed light on this question. The Dispatch highlights the rulings posted on the website of the Assembly of Muslim Jurists in America. Included “under the category ‘Matters Pertaining to Muslim Minorities [in Western Countries]’ were answers to questions regarding the legitimacy of cooperating with United States security forces in the war on terror — both on American soil and abroad — as well as the legitimacy of enlisting in the ranks of these forces.”
Ambivalence was reflected by the Muslim jurists as well as the fatwa committee.
Question: Is a Muslim who owns a moving company permitted to transport supplies from the distributor’s warehouse to the port, knowing that the supplies are to be sent to soldiers operating in Islamic countries as part of NATO forces?
Response: Help one another in goodness and piety, and do not help another in sin and aggression…If somebody commits a crime and conspires against [Muslims] you must not abet him anywhere on earth, whether he is a civilian or belongs to the military. …”
Question: Is it permissible [for] a Muslim, to enlist in the U.S. Navy, in light of the possibility that [one] might be sent to serve in a Muslim country. … [Would] enlisting in the Navy be considered ‘loyalty to the infidels and leaving the fold [of Islam].’
Response: One third of all Muslims today live as minorities in non-Islamic countries, and most of the remaining two-thirds live in the shadow of non-Islamic regimes, even if they live in Islamic lands.  The two groups are subject to man-made laws, which Islamic (sharia) does not recognize, either fully or in part. …
While the Muslim jurist Al-Hajj does suggest that Muslims should be encouraged to work for the police in order to avoid the possibility that “residents of that country might think that Muslim citizens’ loyalty to the country was flawed,” he also explains the harmful aspects of Muslims serving on a police force in a Western country. At the forefront of this difficulty is that Muslim policemen might be obligated “to impose laws that are not the laws of Allah.”
In essence, if a Muslim serves on the police force, is his service an example of subjugation to man-made laws, “which is tantamount to a sin, or is it permitted as the lesser evil”? Thus, “serving on the police force also constitutes ‘aid to perpetrators of crimes and aggression,'” and “[Muslim] policemen [in Western countries] ‘might participate in incriminating a Muslim who has been done an injustice.'” Furthermore, “a policeman is obliged to undergo violations of modesty, such as ‘licentious mixing between the sexes, seclusion with someone of the opposite sex, and the like.'”
Therefore, if a Muslim does engage in police work despite the violations of sharia, then “it is based on the principle of preventing worse outcomes for Islam and Muslims.”
Concerning Muslims joining U.S. security forces, there are conflicting views as well. On the one hand, jurisprudent Dr. Al-Qudah said that it is “permissible for a Muslim to serve in the U.S. military, providing he does not fight his coreligionists.” Thus, “the only thing you must consider in this regard is to make sure not to be involved in fighting, harming, or even bothering Muslims at all. [Other than this], defending your country would be a noble job of which you could be proud.”
At the site, an online discussion was held on May 19, 2010 under the title “Should American Muslims Be Loyal to America? There were pro and con arguments concerning Muslim loyalty to America.
By virtue of living in the U.S. and benefiting from freedom and opportunity in the U.S., American-born Muslims have given an implicit pledge to be loyal to America. …
Being loyal to America does not require American Muslims to be less loyal to God. Neither God nor America demand[s] exclusive loyalty. …
There is no conflict for American Muslims between being loyal to and caring for the worldwide Muslim community, and being loyal to and caring for our American neighbors of other faiths. …
You can be both a good Muslim and a good American, because Islam and America are based on the same values, like justice and compassion.

… America is not dar-ul-harb (the land of war), because Muslims are free to practice and preach their faith here.

Arguments why American Muslims should not be loyal to America include:
American Muslims have no special relationship with (or obligation to) America. … A Muslim’s true covenant (or pledge) is with God.
American Muslims can be loyal to both God and country, but only if that country is an Islamic state, governed by Islamic law (shariah), not a country that rejects God’s law and follows man-made laws.
American Muslims must be loyal to the worldwide Muslim community, not to Americans of other faiths who have rejected Islam and repeatedly elected political leaders who have caused great suffering in the Muslim world. …
America and Islam have contradictory agendas and priorities, and they have different visions for the world.  American Muslims cannot simultaneously support both sets of agendas, priorities, and visions.
… America is dar-ul-kufr (the land of disbelief), because America has rejected Islam and actively opposes the establishment of a Caliphate in the Muslim world.
And so we return to the Americans now in senior leadership posts in al-Qaeda.
How do we battle the ongoing war from within? America finds itself “battling [its] own citizens. How do we deal with wartime traitors? Can the CIA assassinate them? Can it spy on them? What about their civil rights?”
Anwar Awlaki, the American-born cleric, is al-Qaeda’s top recruiter of Western suicide cells. Awlaki radicalized the Fort Hood shooter and the Times Square bomber. Awlaki has called “on American Muslims to turn against their government and has even justified killing American civilians.” He has stated that “[j]ihad against America is binding on every other [American] Muslim,” and he warns that terror attacks will come “from within” the United States. In addition to recruiting other Muslims, “African-American and white converts, who do not fit the Arab terrorist profile, have received al-Qaeda training in Yemen.” Moreover, because of “free speech,” currently “there are 15,000 jihad Web sites” — the majority of which “operate off servers based inside the U.S.”
The jihadists are intent upon the destruction of this country. If moderate Muslims do exist, then it behooves them to fight the American traitors among us. If American Muslims continue to reflect a conflicted relationship with their country of birth, putting Islam above all else, then other Americans will rightly conclude that a civil war is upon us — one that al-Qaeda is steadfastly perpetrating.

  1. God damn you, you and from you are and from thy kindred, and encouraged
    You do not know anything about Islam or even think you know about Christianity or Judaism sound
    Muhammad is the messenger of God as Jesus and Moses before him forbidding adultery or violence to women or children or men
    Not even the prisoners in the war you ignorant
    He Ordered us a good attitude and treatment of all people
    Blood and those who injured themselves Islam is innocent of them
    You are either ignorant or you are an agent of evil to spread sedition among the people might think, even mistrust of Islam
    But I tell you that Islam is based, and good based on the time
    On everyone accountable for his actions and his words and what you are not interested in him now except for sedition

  2. * Muhammad is the messenger of God …

    Mo is a false prophet, denying that Jesus Christ is the son of God, and denying that Jesus Christ was crucified for our sins.

    Flee from islam, its “god” and its “messenger”, before God deals with it.

    “For there will rise up false Christs and false prophets, displaying signs and prodigies with a view to lead astray–if indeed that were possible–even God’s own People.” – Jesus Christ (Mark 13:22)

  3. muslim – go preach peace to your fellow believers. And when you behave like intelligent and compassionate people come back and speak to us. Until then work to fix up your backyard. Being critical of your prophet and religion is NOT sedition, and it is clear that you do not understand what the word means.
    Do you even understand what freedom of speech is? No – I didn’t think so. Now bugger of and do not threaten again, you silly muslim twit.

  4. Muslims have been so brainwashed, as well as terrorised, that they have become their own worst enemies. Their conversion to Islam was forced on them or their ancestors. For this they had to deny their non-Islamic past, and adopt an Arab mentality. They have thus become traitors to their own past culture and identity. Its no wonder they hate themselves, and blame everyone else for the problems that beset them.

    This all consuming hatred of the rest of humanity has been the reason why Muslim armies massacred even those who surrendered. Never in the course of history has been an a military force that has been as ruthless, as cruel, as murderous then the forces of Islam. Even Sparta was not a patch on these mass murderers of humanity. The amount of genocides that these Muslims have done should be catalogued and made compulsory reading in all schools. Everywhere Islam has invaded mass murder and desolation have followed, whether in historic times, or the recent past.

    I would be moved to pity Muslims were it not for the fact that they are quite serious in their intent murder us all.

  5. Can you imagine the pain and suffering as this diseased ideology islam made its way from village to village over the millenia? Who are its enforcers? Mostly unemployed, illiterate, young men originally who finally found something to do all day. Losers who were promised an X-rated afterlife and instant power over half the population (women)….what’s not to like if you’re a dirt poor goat-herder? Of course, this death cult has morphed into something much more sinister since the 7th century with its own “intellectuals” who brainwash little boys into killers and rape little girls in the name of God.

  6. muslim,you are a pathetic sick joke,it’s a pity we can’t meet face to face,and have it out.
