Letter to the Editor: Only one allegiance

Editor:

Recently the British Intelligence shut down an attempted dry practice run by Muslim citizens of England which was correlated with American Intelligence possibly involving Muslim Americans giving financial help to the plan. This operations was a dry run using liquid chemicals converting the liquids into explosives.

Had the dry run proved to be successful. The plan was to target 12 or more passenger air flights headed towards the United States exploding them all in mid air. It would have been a tragedy far more devastating than the World Trade Centers.

What we are talking about here are Muslim citizens living in England and the United States. This was to be a Islamic terror plot which involved British citizens as well as American citizens. It is about time our knuckle headed Washington delegation stood up to the problem and follow the words of Teddy Roosevelt and insist, no demand, his words be followed.

President Teddy stated that "In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith become an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else."

In 1907 he said, "For it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, birthplace or origin. But this is predicated upon a person's becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all."

We have room for but one flag, the American flag, We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language. And we have room for but one sole loyalty, and that is the loyalty to the American people. And the United States of America.
