Anwar Al-Awlaki thought he was right. Ideology thaught him to hate America. Ayatollah Khomeini thought he was right. He destroyed a country. Osama Bin Laden thought he was right, he killed so many innocent people. Ideology motivated them to convince young minds to kill in the name of Allah.
Anwar Al-Awlaki was American and preached in American Mosques. Should we be concerned?. Are there other Imams who think they are right?. How do we know? What can we do?
We must educate ourselves about the history of Islam and support the need for reform for all Moderate Muslims who seek respect and religious acceptance in the United States of America.
It is our right, it is our country, it is our destiny. What is being taught in your neighborhood mosque? Do we have the right to ask? The Imam in your neighborhood mosque should be willing to quiet our fears.
Because of the death of Anwar Al-Awlaki and Osama Bin Laden our government warned us about retaliation toward Americans around the world. Is this a war? There are no weapons, no uniforms only a hidden force motivated by ideology.
It is our duty to remain informed. The well-deserved death of Bin Laden and Anwar Al Awlaki decapitated the enemy’s leadership, but the struggle against barbaric Islamic ideology and jihadism is not over.
