Daddy, Why Do You Hate Muslims?
By Mahmoud El-Yousseph
Al-Jazeerah, CCUN, September 13, 2010
Son: Daddy, why do you hate Muslims?
Father: First of
all, they want to impose Shariah law in America and change our Constitution.
Son: I thought that will take an act of Congress! Like 2/3 of both
House and Senate, plus 3/4 of all states have to ratify it. Since there are
only 2 Muslim Congressmen in the House, that would be virtually impossible.
Father: Since when you are that smart son?
Son: Well, learned this
at school last week.
Father: I also do not like Mooselims because
they can't be patriotic Americans.Son: That is odd! My Muslim classmate,
Chafique, told the class that his oldest brother had served in the US army
and that his father is a retired US veteran.
Father: Well son, these
people are slick. They only do it to get the green card, citizenship and
Son: Not so daddy, I know from my friend that he and all
of his siblings were born in America like me and my sister. And I remember
him telling me the first time we met that after his father graduated from
college and became a citizen, he choose to enlist in our military.
Father: Which side are you on sweetheart? You seem to be spending a lot of
time hanging out with your Moosezlim buddy.
Son: Dad, do you mean Muslim?
Father: Listen son: I never told you that. The reason your father did
not serve in the military is because I was the only son in my family. If
something would have happened to me, you would not have been born and our
family would be extinct over time. That is why your mom always called me
Son: That is not what I heard! Mom told me that you were
lucky because her best friend Jeffery died in a car accident.
Father: Don't be a smarty pants son! Besides your mom always likes to brag.
Son: OK daddy. Anything you say.
Father: Another thing I don't like
about those Mooselims is: they are not like us. They talk, eat and dress
differently. They also eat Taliban food.
Son: What is Taliban food
dad? How do they get? Does it get shipped to them on an airplane?
Dad: Not sure son.
Son: That is funny! last weekend when I went
shopping with mom, I ran into my Muslim friend I told you about. He was with
his mom shopping. I noticed their grocery cart had stuff not different from
what we bought.
Father: Hey, you keep it up like that cookie, and
you will not be visiting your Mooselim buddy anymore.
have you heard about the drunken Connecticut man who stormed into
a hookah bar and got his butt kicked?
Father: Yes son, that was a
mistake after all. He thought the hookah bar was a mosque. He got himself
arrested and charged with disturbing the peace. It could have been worse.
Like having his bones broken!
Son: Like you always told me
dad, violence is not the answer. There is always a better way.
What else you don't like about Muslims, dad?
Father: They have a
different God than us and they also worship a rock.
Son: Daddy, I
think you got it mixed up. When Muslims worship they do face toward the
Kabah [what you call a rock] in Mecca and they worship only God that they
refer to in Arabic as Allah. They German call him Gut, and Jews refer to him
as Yahweh. Besides, don't Jews worship at the Wailing Wall? You never told
me that they worship rocks or bricks. Did you know that Jews and Christians
living in Arabia use the Arabic phrase "Allah" when referring to God. Are
they wrong too?
Father: I don't like Arabic either.
Son: Do you
Father: Whatever! After all, those Mooselims are
terrorists who like to kill Americans and Jews. That is what they are son!
Son: So what happens when we or the Jews kill Muslims? Are we or the
Jews are referred as "terrorists" also?
Father: No son! We kill
them first before they come over here to kill us. That is called acting
smart. Take them by surprise. I think we should do this to any country that
doesn't like or disagrees with us.
Son: Just like the 19 hijackers
did to us on 9/11?
Father: Now you get the picture.
you have married mom if she was a Muslim?
Father: As a man I would have
to be a Muslim or convert to Islam first. I don't think that would set well
with your grandparents.
Son: Daddy, have you ever met a Muslim
Father: No son! They are strange. They never to go to our local
bar for a beer.
Son: Me and Chafique are good friends. Neither one of us
goes to the bar or drinks beer.
Father: I think it is your bed time.
Good night son!
Son: Good night, daddy. I am happy we got to talk!
