Anti-American

“The U.S. is leading the war against terrorism, which in reality is a war against Islam. Its army is directly invading two Muslim countries and indirectly occupying the rest through its stooges. The heroic act of brother Nidal also shows the dilemma of the Muslim-American community. Increasingly, they are being cornered into taking stances that would either make them betray Islam or betray their nation.”“The Evolution of a Radical Cleric: Quotes from Anwar Al-Awlaki,” New York Times, May 8, 2010, http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/09/world/09quotes.html.
