It’s all these things that—so there’s no anti-Islam.”

    Hypocrites. They say something just to please the crowd while we all know how they have been dealing with Muslims, Guantanamo, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan are just some examples of their tyranny.

    They talk the talk but don’t walk the walk……..I can’t believe how Muslim Americans can be easily fooled by there propaganda and lies while at the same time Allah tells us in the Quran that the kuffar will never be pleased with you and they will never stop fighting us untill they make us leave are religion, while at the same time these kuffar have invaded more than one Muslim country killed thousands upon Millon’s of Muslim civilian s, stole & exploited are natural recourses and prop up the most brutal oppresve dictator s that have made Muslims lives go through poverty, backwardness and a living hell and at the same time they try to force there man made ideology values on us of secular, liberal democracy, and if any Muslim stands up and calls for khilafa, sharia, they then lable them as extremists, terrorist that must be killed and the gullible Muslims who go on this site swallow it all up, all of you who go on this site should find out that the government is a sponsor…. Never trust a kuffar especially one of there mouth pieces like the media, ……..Allah tells us whatever they say to us but what’s in there harts is far more worse

  • The Voice of Reason

    It is very interesting to read about what various presidents have to say about Islam, if only their foreign policy and national surveilance policies reflected what they say then they wouldn’t be just hypocritical politicians. God bless Islam and when politicians treat us fairly then I say God bless America!

  • muhammed zia

    2:62…The Holy Qur’an
    Those who believe (in the Qur’an), and those who follow the Jewish
    (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in
    Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward
    with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.

  • Arzlan2

    All murdered Muslims.
    You at ICNA love kissing their a? why ?

  • Syed Sadruddin Hussain

    The views of US leaders are very good. The US administration has been supporting the independence of Christians from the Muslim countries like creation of South Sudan from Sudan, East Timor from Indonesia, etc. but not supporting the independence of Chechnya from Russia’s colonialism, Moro island from the Phillipines’ colonialism, Arakan Muslims from Burma’s colonialism, Sinkiang Muslim from China domination, Pitani Muslims from Thailand etc. They should also support for the independence of the Muslims equally to maintain their good image of love for all humanity regardless of faiths. Thanks.

  • Issa Kirarira

    My Brother Anonymous, what is happening in those countries (Afghanistan,
    Iraq. etc) you have motioned is political affairs. We should express gratitude
    to all those who have accepted Islam’s contribution to the universe. Don’t be
    like those people who want to talk for Islam that is a terrorist religion, a religion
    of evil when they do not know the beauty of Islam. You can’t read they mind. So,
    if you’re saying they are hypocrites , what did you want them to say about God stunning religion.
    To all former present of America and current president,
    thanks for those beautiful words about our dear religion-Islam

    and in 1785. george washington welcomed good muslim workers at his mt. vernon estate. in 1791, benjamin franklin stated that he ” did not disapprove ” of a meeting place in pennsylvania that was designed to accommodate preachers of all religions. franklin wrote that “even if the mufti of constantinople were to send a missionary to preach mohammadanism to us, he would find a pulpit at his service……… american views of islam were both influenced by favorable enlightment writings from europe, as well as europeans who had long warned that islam was a threat to christianity and republicanism. american views of islam also affected debates regarding freedom of religion during the drafting of the state constitution of pennsylvania in 1776….. in 1790, the south carolina legislative body granted special legal status to a community of moroccans……morocco was the first country that recognized united states as a country.
