Feedback: Islam isn't for America

Farooq Jaswal, you say you want to come to Whidbey without drawing undue attention (News-Times, April 2)? I have some suggestions for you that will serve you well anywhere in the USA. 1) Learn to speak English. 2) Dress like normal Americans. 3) Renounce Islam. 4) Study our founding fathers. If you can’t do this or you are unwilling then I suggest you leave our country.

In just the last couple of years many Islamic women have been stoned to death for the crime of allowing themselves to be raped or for real or imagined infidelity. In Saudi Arabia 19 little school girls were beaten back into a burning building because their heads were not covered and they paid with their lives for that crime. The vast majority of women throughout the Islamic world have been subjected to sexual lobotomies that forever prevent them from knowing what it is to be a woman. These sexual lobotomies sadly occur here in the USA in our Islamic communities as well. Space prevents me from highlighting too numerous to number other Islamic mom and apple pie examples.

This is America, it is not Islam. It is not your place to change it or expect us to change ourselves to accommodate you. I recognize that you may be a reasonable peaceful person. The problem is you and others like you who refuse to accept the above and renounce Islam and provide the currency that continues to fund this madness that is spreading throughout the world.
