A Message For Muslims In America

image

Some pretty insensitive and crazy and just plain wrong things have been said lately about the immigration of Muslims to America.
(please see my last blog post:
http://www.ilovemuslims.net/2015/07/should-immigration-of-muslims-to-america-be-stopped/. It is entitled, “Should Immigration Of Muslims To America Be Stopped? Astaghfirullah!”)

These comments have come as a result of recent “lone wolf” jihadist violence in Western countries: Great Britain, France, Denmark, Canada, Australia, and America, and the concern that some people have about Muslims in America becoming radicalized by ISIS and other terrorist groups.

I am just one person (and just one person without a huge amount of influence at that!) but I want to send a message to Muslims coming to America:

Welcome!

Like all immigrants, if you want to obey the laws of America, I – and others – welcome you here! I – and others – want you here!

For those of you who are already here in America – whether you were born in America, whether you came here as an immigrant, whether you came here as an international student, or whether you came here as a refugee:

I am glad that you are in America.
You make America a better place. A richer place.
You make my life a better life. A richer life.

I love you, my Muslim friends.

And I know many other Christians feel exactly the same way.
