    Al Jazeera: What is it that you think makes - or should make - the Republican party attractive to American Muslims?

    Saba Ahmed: The appeal to American Muslims is that Republicans have values - such as [being] pro-life, [in favour of] traditional marriage, business, trade, etc, that align with Islamic beliefs.

    Democrats, [on the other hand], espouse liberal values which are incompatible with Islam. I couldn't support their pro-choice, pro-LGBT, pro-taxes approach.

    [While] some [of the] social values [of the Democratic party] are good, mostly they promote same sex relations, which are completely forbidden in Islam. I have been extremely disappointed in the Obama administration policies [in this regard].

    Al Jazeera: If that is the case, why do you think some conservative Americans, elements of the country's Christian right and Republicans appear to be the most outspoken in suggesting that Muslims pose a threat to the American way of life?

    Ahmed : Many conservatives don't know any single Muslim. They only hear about Islam after a terrorist attack so they direct all their anger against us.

    Our goal at Republican Muslim Coalition is to have Muslims in key electoral states get involved in their local Republican parties and be a resource for them to understand Islam.

    Muslim Americans are better off being Republicans because Islamic values align with the GOP [the Grand Old Party, another name for the Republicans], such as [the] state of the economy, lower taxes and traditional family values.

    Let me guess, these right wing Muslims are supporting that unqualified Canadian national Ted Cruz for President since the Donald wants to bar future Muslim immigration.icon_idea.gif

    Because two vile religion cannot stand together, they have to put one or the other down in whatever way they can to look more superior.

    Seems weird to favor the party that uses you as bait and wants to exclude you and use you as a target for fear and hatred. But then, there are also gay Republicans...
