Are we truly the best community to serve God and mankind? No one alive today can truthfully and honestly say Muslims are the “best community” given the current tumultuous conditions in the Muslim world where there is little true faith, little peace, little health of mind and body; but much poverty, illiteracy, hostility, antagonism, disunity, corruption, violence, civil wars, and terrorism where Muslims are killing fellow Muslims.

They should shock and outrage us, compelling us to demand an immediate change in American foreign policy.
