American Muslim statement on the 10th anniversary of 9/11

Wajahat Ali has posted (after, characteristically, spearheading the drafting of) a statement signed by a number of prominent Muslims–plus myself– on the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 tragedyon HuffPo called "A Muslim American Declaration." Please check it out. I think it came out very nicely.

    A few Muslim bloggers have objected to the statement, objecting to it as a sort of “loyalty oath.” There’s a thread on this issue on Talk Islam.
    So far, their comments have only been in haiku form on Twitter, but I imagine they’ll probably chime in with more detailed objections soon.

    Muslims,especially the sub-continental varieties, have been programmed to believe that it is improper for them to be loyal to non-Muslim governments and societies. No wonder then that they object to your “loyalty oath”
