Until Then,……You worry me…..and why!


I was wandering around the internet today, and actually ran across something that really tells it like it is about a big problem we have here in the states.

The pilot who wrote this was dead-on right with what he had to say about Muslims.

It seems the only thing we ever hear anymore from a Liberal, or their press, is how America is wrong and everyone else is right.

Well, I am here to say that America is NOT wrong, but the direction we are heading is. We are too worried about what others think, and don’t worry enough about what is good for us.

The newspaper today stated, that some Muslim doctor is saying we are profiling him because he has been stopped to be checked three times while getting on an airplane. My words to that are…..
Inconvenient? YES! Necessary? Without a doubt! Profiling? NO!!! Here is what Captain John Maniscalco, an American Arilines pilot said in an open letter:

“You Worry Me!”

by American Airlines Pilot — Captain John Maniscalco

I have been trying to say this since 9-11, but you worry me. I wish you didn’t. I wish when I walk down the streets of the country that I love, that your color and culture still blended with the beautiful human landscape we enjoy in this country.
But you don’t blend in anymore. I notice you, and it worries me. I notice you because I can’t help it anymore. People from your homelands, professing to be Muslims, have been attacking and killing my fellow citizens and our friends for more than 20 years now. I don’t fully understand their grievances and hate, but I know nothing can justify the inhumanity of their attacks.
On September 11th, nineteen ARAB-MUSLIMS hijacked four jetliners in my country. They cut the throats of women in front of children and brutally stabbed to death others. They took control of those planes and crashed them into buildings killing thousands of proud fathers, loving sons, wise grandparents, elegant daughters, best friends, favorite coaches, fearless public servants, and children’s mothers.
The Palestinians Celebrated, the Iraqis were overjoyed as was most of the Arab world. So, I notice you now. I don’t want to be worried. I don’t want to be consumed by the same rage and hate and prejudice that have destroyed the souls of these terrorists. But, I need your help. As a rational American, trying to protect my country and family in an irrational and unsafe world, I must know how to tell the difference between you, and the Arab/Muslim terrorist.
How do I differentiate between the true Arab/Muslim Americans, and the Arab/Muslim Terrorists in our communities who are attending our schools, enjoying our parks, and living in OUR communities under the protection of OUR constitution, while they plot the next attack that will slaughter these same good neighbors and children?
The events of September 11th changed the answer. It is NOT my responsiibility to determine which of you embraces our great country, with all of its religions, with ALL of it’s different citizens, with all of its faults. It is time for every Arab/Muslim in this country to determine it for me.
I want to know, I demand to know, and I have a right to know, whether or not you love America? Do you pledge allegiance to the flag? Do you proudly display it in front of your house, or on your car? Do you pray in your many daily prayers that Allah will bless this nation, the He will protect and prosper it? Or do you pray that Allah will destroy it in one of your Jihads? Are you thankful for the freedom that only this nation affords? A freedom that was paid for by the blood of hundreds of thousands of patriots who gave their lives for this country? Are you willing to preserve this freedom by also paying the ultimate sacrifice? Do you love America?

If this is your commitment, then I need YOU to start letting ME know about it. Your Muslim leaders in this nation should be flooding the media at this time with hard facts on your faith, and what hard actions you are taking as a community and as a religion to protect the United States of America.
Please, no more benign overtures of regret for the death of the innocent because I worry about who you regard as innocent. No more benign overtures of condemnation for the unprovoked attacks because I worry about what is unprovoked to you. I am not interested in any more sympathy. I am only interested in action.
What will you do for America – our great country – at this time of crisis, at this time of war?
I want to see Arab-Muslims waving the AMERICAN flag in the streets. I want to hear you chanting “Allah Bless America”. I want to see young Arab/Muslim men enlisting in the military. I want to see a commitment of money, time, and emotion to the victims of this butchering and to this nation as a whole.
The FBI has a list of over 400 people they want to talk to regarding the WTC attack. Many of these people live and socialize right now in Muslim communities. You know them. You know where they are. Hand them over to us now! But I have seen little even approaching this sort of action. Instead I have seen an already closed and secretive community close even tighter. You have disappeared from the streets. You have posted armed security guards at your facilities. You have threatened lawsuits. You have screamed for protection from reprisals. The very few Arab/Muslim representatives that HAVE appeared in the media were defensive and equivocating.
They seemed more concerned with making sure that the United States proves who was responsible before taking action. They seemed more concerned with protecting their fellow Muslims from violence directed towards them in the United States and abroad than they did with supporting our country and denouncing “leaders” like Khadafi, Hussein, Farrakhan, and Arafat.
If the true teachings of Islam proclaim tolerance and peace and love for all people, then I want chapter and verse from the Koran and statements from popular Muslim leaders to back it up. What good is it if the teachings in the Koran are good , and pure, and true, when your “leaders” are teaching fanatical interpretations, terrorism, and intolerance?
It matters little how good Islam SHOULD BE, if huge numbers of the world’s Muslims interpret the teachings of Mohammed incorrectly and adhere to a degenerative form of the religion. A form that has been demonstrated to us over and over again. A form whose members are recruited from the prisons around the world. A form whose members (some as young as five years old) are seen day after day, week in and week out, year after year, marching in the streets around the world, burning effigies of our presidents, burning the American flag, shooting weapons into the air. A form whose members convert from a peaceful religion, only to take up arms against the great United States of America, the country of their birth. A form whose rules are so twisted, that their travelling members refuse to show their faces at airport security checkpoints, in the name of Islam.
We will NEVER allow the attacks of September 11, or any others for that matter, to take away that which is so precious to us: Our rights under the greatest Constitution in the world.
I want to know where every Arab Muslim in this country stands and I think it is my right and the right of every true citizen of this country to demand it. A right paid for by the blood of thousands of my brothers and sisters who died protecting the very constitution that is protecting you and your family. I am pleading with you to let me know.
I want you here as my brother, my neighbor, my friend, as a fellow American.
But there can be no gray areas or ambivalence regarding your allegiance and it is up to YOU to show ME where YOU stand. Until then. “YOU WORRY ME!”

AMEN to that people! This man has it right. It isn’t up to us to find out this information. We are in our own country. We are NOT the ones who need to do the work here. They are. They came here, do they have a commitment to America or to Islam? Do they have a committment to peace, or to a Jihad? They need to speak up and let us know, because until they do, they will be profiled, and they should be. After all, just as Captain Maniscalco said…..”On September 11th, nineteen ARAB/MUSLIMS hijacked four jetliners in my country. They cut the throats of women in front of children and brutally stabbed to death others. They took control of those planes and crashed them into buildings killing thousands of proud fathers, loving sons, wise grandparents, elegant daughters, best friends, favorite coaches, fearless public servants, and children’s mothers. They killed Americans……and we should want to know where their allegiances lie…….with us…..or with them.

It is time for the Muslims to stop being defensive and start letting us know because we have that right. WE HAVE THAT RIGHT!!! The safety of our great country depends on it.

God Bless America, and Allah Bless America too…..
God Bless our troops
God Bless my readers

This letter was checked out by me at Snopes.com for validity, and it shows it as non conclusive though, an American Airlines pilot by the name of Captain John Maniscalco does exist.

    Great post… I only hope this letter/article turns out to be real… even if it doesn’t the sentiment is.

  2. I found your awesome blog via Blogexplosion!
    Really great stuff here…
    I bookmarked this.

    I would really appreciate your opinion or comment via posting a comment on my blog if you get a spare moment 🙂

  3. Johnny says:

    That letter was awesome and should be printed on the front page of every newspaper in America. So many points in that letter were dead on, show me your allegiance and I will no longer view you as a threat, hide away your allegiance and I will do what I have to do, even if you call it profiling, to insure the safety of my friends, family, and country. Unless you have something to hide, you won’t mind being searched.

  4. Gayle S says:

    I believe the same sentiments can be applied to virtually every religious, racial and cultural group. Was not the same sentiment applied to the Japanese during WWII? Could not the same sentiment be applied to those “christians” who initiated the crusades? Americans are killing Americans on a daily basis in our backyards. Although the events of 9/11 were horrendous and those who caused it should be condemned, the type of nationalistic ethnocentric mentality displayed in this letter spawns the seed of racism. But alas, history repeats itself unless those of the current generation recognize the flawed logic of previous generations’ thinking. It’s the type of thinking of this particular author’s letter that worries me.

  5. Justin Gordon says:

    Thank you Mr. Swezy for your intelligent response. I agree to some extent, but I also feel the original letter (not your response by any means) was written from a somewhat unbalanced vantage point. Allow me please, without going through the whole article, to extract a few comments and interject my own thoughts in parenthesis:

    As the author states, “I’ve been trying to say this since 9-11, but you worry me. I wish you didn’t. I wish when I walked down the streets of this country that I love, that your color and culture still blended with the beautiful human landscape we enjoy in this country. But you don’t blend in anymore. I notice you, and it worries me.”
    ( It appears to me that this author is suspect of ANYONE who remotely appears to be of middle eastern persuasion. He makes these comments without talking to the individual or asking the individual what he thinks or where he stands. How is that not a racist sentiment?)

    He then states, “The Palestinians celebrated, The Iraqis were overjoyed as was most of the Arab world. So, I notice you now. I don’t want to be worried. I don’t want to be consumed by the same rage and hate and prejudice that has destroyed the soul of these terrorists. But I need your help. As a rational American, trying to protect my country and family in an irrational and unsafe world, I must know how to tell the difference between you, and the Arab/Muslim terrorist.”
    (I understand his concern, but how do we tell by the looks of ANYONE in this world whether they are a serial killer, a pedophile, or any kind of degenerate, simply by how they look? )

    He says, ” It is not my responsibility to determine which of you embraces our great country (TRUE, it ISN’T his resonsibility). It is time for every Arab/Muslim in this country to determine it for me.” (Maybe he should befriend a few of them first. I’m sorry Mr. Swezy, but this man’s arrogance is beyond belief and it’s apparent he has never made an attempt to speak with, on a personal level, any Middle easterners who do reside here. What about second and third generation Arabs who have embraced the American culture? These are students, workers and yes, military people. I know quite a few personally and have had extensive conversations with them. They are quite clear as to their allegiance to the US)

    He states, “I want to know, I demand to know, and I have a right to know, whether or not you love America. Do you pledge allegiance to its flag? Do you proudly display it in front of your house, or on your car?” (How many white Americans don’t do that? Does he have the same criteria for them in order that they PROVE to him their love for this country? )

    He says, “Do you love America? If this is your commitment, then I need YOU to start letting ME know about it.” “Your Muslim leaders in this nation should be flooding the media at this time with hard facts on your faith, and what hard actions you are taking as a community and as a religion to protect the United States of America.”
    ( Many Middle eastern residents of the US have spoken out publicly about their disdain for the actions of Muslim radicals, but for him to suggest that they are accountable to HIM is again IMHO, nothing short of arrogance. )

    “I want to see Arab-Muslims waving the AMERICAN flag in the streets. I want to hear you chanting “Allah Bless America ” I want to see young Arab/Muslim men enlisting in the military. I want to see a commitment of money, time, and emotion to the victims of this butchering and to this nation as a whole.” (Just a thought Mr. Swezy, but if one is of the opinion that the media is liberally biased, do you really think they would report on such actions anyway?)

    It’s not my intention to start a debate here, because for the most part, I understand the gentleman’s sentiments and to a slight extent agree, but I also think his own “extremism” if you will, hinges on irrational fear which taken to a logical extreme results in racism and descrimination.

    Thanks for the blog and thanks for letting me express my opinion. I do enjoy reading it and I share your perspective as far as being a politically moderate born-again Christian. I only hate to think how this author would view Jesus (being of a darker Middle eastern descent and not the light haired blue-eyed image westerners have given Him) if he saw Him walking down the street.

  6. The United States administers a global empire. This used to be a secret. Through the 1990s, our government told us that we stood for democracy, freedom, and independence of nations worldwide (lying to us). But the majority of U.S. citizens refused to critically examine their government out of patriotism. Sheeplike, we acted in defiance of the founding fathers of our nation who distrusted the power of government, who realized that small acts of terrorism (which existed then as now) were nothing compared to the potential for tyranny from those who wield governmental powers.

    This was my father and I am very proud of his contribution to inform the ignorant citizen about what is happening in our country.
    reply from Robert: Wow. I wrote that post in 2007. I am honored that you found this post about a letter that your dad wrote. Thanks for the comment sir.
