Re: Muslim Soldier with 101st Airborne Says he won't go if deployed

Topics: Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam

His reason for refusing to deploy? U.S. Army Pfc. Naser Abdo, a 20-year-old infantryman assigned to the 101st Airborne Division, refusal to fight against other Muslims and bases his decision on the Qur'an and Islamic law - clearly putting Islam before his country.

As Robert Spence points out, it would be refreshing to see a comprehensive refutation of the soldier's views by the American Muslim advocacy groups that dismiss as "Islamophobia" any suggestion that there is any difficulty in reconciling one's obligations as an American soldier, or American citizen, and one's obligations as a knowledgeable and committed Muslim.
