This letter was forwarded to me in it's entirety and I felt all should read it. I am not the author of any part

of the letter. Everybody has an opinion.  I agree with the Author/Pilot 


This is the most profound, most insightful message to Muslims I've

seen. I think it should be read on Fox, sent to the President, and

forwarded to any other form of media to express what so many of us feel toward the Muslims!


The paper stated today that some Muslim doctor is saying we are

profiling him because he has been checked three times while getting on an airplane.


(A Letter From An American Airlines Pilot) This well spoken man, who

is a pilot with American Airlines, says what is in his heart, absorb and pass's time to get answers

from those who claim their terrorist members do not represent

them..why are their leaders not LOUDLY AND FIERCELY AND CONTINUOUSLY condemning  their visible murderous brethren.



By American Airlines Pilot - Captain John Maniscalco


"I've been trying to say this since 9-11 but you worry me. I wish

you didn't. I wish when I walked down the streets of this country

that I love, that your color and culture still blended with the

beautiful human landscape we enjoy in this country. But you don't

blend in anymore. I notice you, and it worries me.


I notice you because I can't help it anymore. People from your

homelands, professing to be Muslims, have been attacking and killing

my fellow citizens and our friends for more than 20 years now. I

don't fully understand their grievances and hate but I know that

nothing can justify the inhumanity of their attacks.


On September 11, nineteen ARAB-MUSLIMS hijacked four jetliners in my

country. They cut the throats of women in front of children and

brutally stabbed to death others. They took control of those planes

and crashed them into buildings killing thousands of proud fathers,

loving sons, wise grandparents, elegant daughters, best friends,

favorite coaches, fearless public servants, and children's mothers.


The Palestinians Celebrated, The Iraqis were overjoyed as was most

of the Arab world. So I notice you now. I don't want to be worried.

I don't want to be consumed by the same rage and hate and prejudice

that has destroyed the soul of these terrorists. But I need your

help. As a rational American, trying to protect my country and

family in an irrational and unsafe world, I must know how to tell

the difference between you, and the Arab/Muslim terrorist.


How do I differentiate between the true Arab/Muslim-Americans and

the Arab/Muslims in our communities who are attending our schools,

enjoying our parks, and living in OUR communities under the

protection of OUR constitution, while they plot the next attack that

will slaughter these same good neighbors and children? The events of

September 11th changed the answer. It is not my responsibility to determine which of you

embraces our great country, with ALL of its religions, with ALL of

its different citizens, with all of its faults. It is time for every

Arab/Muslim in this country to determine it for me.


I want to know, I demand to know, and I have a right to know whether

or not you love America . Do you pledge allegiance to its flag? Do

you proudly display it in front of your house, or on your car? Do

you pray in your many daily prayers that Allah will bless this

nation, that He will protect and prosper it? Or do you pray that

Allah will destroy it in one of your "Jihads"? Are you thankful for

the freedom that only this nation affords? A freedom that was paid

for by the blood of hundreds of thousands of patriots who gave their

lives for this country? Are you willing to preserve this freedom by

paying the ultimate sacrifice? Do you love America If this is your commitment,

then I need YOU to start letting ME know about it.


Your Muslim leaders in this nation should be flooding the media at

this time with hard facts on your faith, and what hard actions you

are taking as a community and as a religion to protect the United States of America.


Please, no more benign overtures of regret for the death of the

innocent because I worry about who you regard as innocent. No more

benign overtures of condemnation for the unprovoked attacks because

I worry about what is unprovoked to you. I am not interested in any

more sympathy. I am only interested in action. What will you do for

America - our great country -- at this time of crisis, at this time of war?


I want to see Arab-Muslims waving the AMERICAN flag in the streets.

I want to hear you chanting "Allah Bless America " I want to see

young Arab/Muslim men enlisting in the military. I want to see a

commitment of money, time, and emotion to the victims of this butchering and to this nation as a whole.


The FBI has a list of over 400 people they want to talk to regarding

the WTC attack. Many of these people live and socialize in Muslim

communities. You know them. You know where they are. Hand them over

to us, now! But I have seen little even approaching this sort of

action. Instead I have seen an already closed and secretive

community close even tighter. You have disappeared from the streets.


You have posted armed security guards at your facilities. You have

threatened lawsuits. You have screamed for protection from reprisals.


The very few Arab/Muslim representatives that HAVE appeared in the

media were defensive and equivocating. They seemed more concerned

with making sure that the United States proves who was responsible

before taking action. They seemed more concerned with protecting

their fellow Muslims from violence directed towards them in the

United States and abroad than they did with supporting our country

and denouncing "leaders" like Khadafi,  Hussein, Farrakhan, and Arafat.


If the true teachings of Islam proclaim tolerance and peace and love

for all people then I want chapter and verse from the Koran and

statements from popular Muslim leaders to back it up. What good is

it if the teachings in the Koran are good and pure and true when

your "leaders" are teaching fanatical interpretations, terrorism, and intolerance?


It matters little how good Islam SHOULD BE if large numbers of the

world's Muslims interpret the teachings of Mohammed incorrectly and

adhere to a degenerative form of the religion. A form that has been

demonstrated to us over and over again. A form whose structure is

built upon a foundation of violence, death, and suicide. A form

whose members are recruited from the prisons around the world. A

form whose members (some as young as five years

old) are seen day after day, week in and week out, year after year,

marching in the streets around the world, burning effigies of our

presidents, burning the American flag, shooting weapons into the

air. A form whose members convert from a peaceful religion, only to

take up arms against the great United States of America, the country

of their birth. A form whose rules are so twisted, that their

traveling members re fuse to show their faces at airport security checkpoints, in the name of Islam.


Do you and your fellow Muslims hate us because our women proudly

show their faces in public rather than cover up like a shameful

whore? Do you and your fellow Muslims hate us because we drink wine

with dinner, or celebrate Christmas? Do you and you fellow Muslims hate us because

we have befriended Israel , the ONLY FRIENDLY CIVILIZED SOCIETY

living in the Eastern Muslim/Arab area, that thinks and acts like most Americans.


And if you and your fellow Muslims hate us, then why in the world

are you even here? Are you here to take our money? Are you here to

undermine our peace and stability? Are you here to destroy us? If

so, I want you to leave. I want you to go back to your desert sandpit where women are

treated like rats and dogs. I want you to take your religion, your

friends, and your family back to your Islamic extremists, and STAY

THERE! We will NEVER give in to your influence, your retarded

mentality, your twisted, violent, intolerant religion.


We will NEVER allow the attacks of September 11, or any others for

that matter, to take away that which is so precious to us: Our

rights under the greatest constitution in the world. I want to know

where every Arab/ Muslim in this country stands and I think it is my

right and the right of every true citizen of this country to demand

it. A right paid for by the blood of thousands of my brothers and

sisters who died protecting the very constitution that is protecting

you and your family. I am pleading with you to let me know. I want

you here as my brother , my neighbor, my friend, as a fellow

American. But there can be no gray areas or ambivalence regarding

your allegiance and it is up to YOU, to show ME, where YOU stand." "Until then .. you worry me."


LET'S COVER THE COUNTRY WITH THIS ONE copy and forwarding means I agree.
