With Obama's Help, Assembling Allah's Domestic Army Is Now Easier
by James Zumwalt
If immigrants to the U.S. seek citizenship but are reluctant to take an oath of allegiance because it requires a commitment to help defend the country, what is the solution?
If the immigrants in question are Muslim and you have a pro-Muslim U.S. president, the solution is simple — just change the oath to accommodate them.
For years, the oath for citizenship included a requirement the declarant agree to "bear arms on behalf of the United States" and "perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States" when required by the law. But the U.S. Customs and Immigration Service (USCIS) now says, "a candidate may be eligible to exclude these two clauses based on religious training and belief or a conscientious objection."
