Message to Anwar al-Awlaki.

As salaam alaikum, mate, Keef Halik?

OK, I’m not a muslim, but we’ve got a few things in common.

First off, we were both born in the USA.  I bet you probably get sick when you hear Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the USA” as well.  On the other hand, that fact makes us both US citizens. And even though we both find that fact as appealing as (fill in the blank), it unfortunately is something which is a truth.

The next thing we have in common is that we have no love for the USA as it happens to function right now.  How we would handle this is a matter of opinion.  I have to admit I find that your sermon about killing Americans hits me as being pretty stupid.  Does that mean that the people listening to it should start with you?

I’d guess that we can come to an understanding as to why you said what you said, but you have to remember that beyond the stereotype, there isn’t such a thing as a typical American: after all you are a muslim and I am a Brit.  But we would agree that the stereotypical yank is a real dickhead.  But the problem is that by saying what you did about killing yanks, you play into the hands of the jerkoffs who say that Muslims (and any other non-Christian) American can’t be a proper citizen.  The Botox Bandit whose brain has turned to oatmeal from too many botox injections can say that Muslims weren’t also victims of 9-11.

Not every US citizen is unaware of what the US has done to the rest of the world.  The fact that what was supposed to be a peaceful nation has become a tyrranical one and wants to shove its culture down the throats of the rest of the world. Some of the US citizenry know that Israel is not the friend of anybody as well as the meaning of Al-Nakba and the USS Liberty.  Don’t listen to the rants of the Christian right who want to support that sick regime.

Where we differ is in how to address the wrongs.  You want to destroy.  I want to build.  We need to get rid of the negativity.

You can’t work outside the system or you play into the hands of the people who show shock and awe to the people of Iraq and Afghanistan in the hopes of lord knows what.  In fact, the best place for you to be is here and showing what good citizens the muslims are.  Tell the world of the zionist hypocracy as they say never again, yet have been perpetrating al-Nakba for over 60 years.  Tell the idiots that say only Christians can be good American citizens that the US was founded as a religiously neutral country.  Franklin wrote that “even if the Mufti of Constantinople were to send a missionary to preach Mohammedanism to us, he would find a pulpit at his service.”

You should be given a pulpit, but you need to stop saying kill Americans: especially since you are one.

The way to stop Americans from being “parties of the devil” is to show them a different way. As the slogan goes: “be the change you want to see”.

Believe in change.

By saying what you say, you show to me that you doubt God’s/Allah’s power to change people.  Even worse, you show that you lack faith in the truth of his message.  You show a hatred for yourself as an American, which you are like it or not.

Is that what you truly want to tell the world?  Or do you want to send a different message: one that affirms God/Allah.

Take it how you will, bro.

Ma salaama.

[Quran 5:4] They consult you concerning what is lawful for them; say, “Lawful for you are all good things, including what trained dogs and falcons catch for you.” You train them according to GOD’s teachings. You may eat what they catch for you, and mention GOD’s name thereupon. You shall observe GOD. GOD is most efficient in reckoning.
