On days like today not even 5 yrs of faithful & honorable active duty #Service in #USMC can convince some ppl of a Muslims loyalty to USA.1/
Ppl ask me why I enlisted in the #Marines in 1997 at the age of 19. I tell them b/c loyalty to my nation of residence is part of my faith./2
I served the US faithfully BECAUSE of my faith, not in spite of it. I had the full support of my father — a Muslim Imam & my family. /3
My brother @MuslimIQ fully supported my decision to serve and bragged about it to all his friends in school. I never doubted my decision. /4
But on days like today I feel helpless — b/c countless fellow Americans are being lied to by those in the government and the MSM. /5
The fact is that #TerrorismHasNoReligion. But MSM gives 5x more coverage when terrorist is “Muslim”.
But when a white person shoots 600+ ppl killing 59 of them, MSM debates whether or not that really qualifies as terrorism or not. /6
Our government vilifies ppl like me while ignoring the fact that the biggest threat to USA is White Supremacy. /7
I’m not complaining — I’m genuinely concerned for the welfare of my fellow citizens who are being fed hate systematically on purpose. /8
My appeal to my fellow Americans is - don’t take the bait. We all must stand together and fight extremism in all forms united as one. /9
This is why Ahmadiyya Muslim Community launched the #TrueIslam campaign. This is the counter-narrative to Daesh./10
I invite you to go study and educate yourself about what Islam actually teaches — what I and other Muslim really believe. We desire peace/11
We hurt when innocent lives are lost regardless of faith, color & creed of the victims. We are just as hurt today as we were about #Vegas/12
We are just as angry today as we were about #Orlando #SandyHook #Portland or #Charlottesville. We are ready to stand & defend our nation/13
But our enemy is not “those people over there”. Our enemy is hate, ignorance, bigotry, xenophobia, & extremism in all forms. /14
So I invite you to join us. Sign up as a #MuslimAlly on TrueIslam.com and help educate both Muslims and Non-Muslims. /15
Let our actions speak louder that their hate. Let our compassion dissolve their “walls” Let us BE the United States of America. /16 End
