It is a sad day in the USA when an America Soldier is refused service in this country. We are so obsessed with offnding people from other countries, but as Americans we are being offended. The local papers, news media, journalist,government are not afraid of offending us, removing our rights, destroying our Constitution, throwing us in jail for Bible Studies in our homes, but they will go to long lengths to protect those who wish to destroy this country.What is wrong with all of you people, have you lost your minds? We are setting ourselves up for destruction and the news media is the biggest participant in the whole thing. It use to be the news was where you heard the truth, no longer, you hae become a weak link in our country, and when we loose our freedom just remember you will loose yours too. It is time We the People stand up for what our fore fathers built, what our sons and daughters fought and died for. This is our country, the government is suppose to work for "We The People" Stand UP for this country.

I hope you good Americans in Louisiana show them how country people deal with ragheads. Run them out of town!! Make their lives hell! Make them leave. Whatever it takes. I repeat whatever it takes. When you get them out of your city then press outward. We need to rally to get all Muslims out of America before we end up in dire straits like Europe. Look at France!

There is too much hate in our Country.
This situation has been alleged. Why don't we wait until a complete nvestigation has been done before we just hang all foreigners?
Where is the Soldier who supposedly was offended?
How would you act if this was a Hoax?
Just saying.........

The soldier should come forward and tell us his story, no one really knows what went down except for the soldier. The owner and manager apologized, but they never said for what. The owner cannot speak or understand English, that is wrong, if you want to own a business in the USA you should be able to communicate well with your customers. How can we trust foreign people when our Twin Towers were blown up by them, we lost lives, we lost faith,we are suppose to accept these people, but how do we know they can be trusted. Are you willing to put your families lives at risk just to be politically correct. What if it was your family member who lost their life because they trusted these people? I do not think we should hate, but I do think we should be aware of the real reason they are here.

This is a sad day for all Americans. Enough is enough....Foreigners come into our country and TELL us they don't want us to do things we have been doing since the Constitution was established.Now we have one of one who finds American soldiers so despicable that they refuse to serve "HIS KIND".
I agree with Fredie, it is time they get the hell out of our country....YOU rag-heads are NOT welcome..WE Don't want to pay taxes to support your kind...GET OUT..GO BACK WHERE YOU BELONG!
AMERICA..LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT, YOUR ACTIONS PROVE YOU HAVE NO RESPECT FOR AMERICA.
I believe Muslims are here to destroy all Americans..."Destroy all American infidels"...that is what they are trying to do.
Obama cancelled the National Day of Prayer, that has been held for years, yet he allowed the Muslims to have a day of prayer at the White House. Also, NEW YORK city closes down the streets for Muslims to have their day of prayer? Does this worry anyone but me?? Is our president (their president) a member of the Muslim brotherhood?
We should not hate people; however, we can certainly disapprove of the way they treat our soldiers, who are dying for people who refuse to serve "PEOPLE LIKE YOU"....that's a bit hard to swallow.
ONE NATION, ONE FLAG, ONE GOD, ONE LANGUAGE!!!!!

I watched the video that was filmed at the Texaco station. There were protesters. I wouldn't think all those people would be protesting IF there wasn't a good reason. Watch youtube. Nobody is saying we should, "just hang all foreigners." However; Americans should not tolerate disrespectful immigrants. AMERICA...LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT !!

Praise be to Allaah.
Firstly: 

Playing or listening to national anthems is haraam. This has been discussed in the answer to question no. 5000 and 20406. It makes no difference whether what is played is songs or the national anthem or anything else. 

Secondly: 

Standing by way of humility and veneration is not befitting unless it is done  for Allaah. 

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

“And stand before Allaah with obedience”

[al-Baqarah 2:238]. 

Allaah has said that because of His greatness and majesty, the greatest of creation (the angels) will stand for Him on the Day of Resurrection and no one will speak until after Allaah has given him permission. He says (interpretation of the meaning): 

“The Day that Ar‑Rooh [Jibreel (Gabriel) or another angel] and the angels will stand forth in rows, they will not speak except him whom the Most Gracious (Allaah) allows, and he will speak what is right”

[al-Naba’ 78:38]. 

The one who claims that there is any created being for whom one should stand out of respect have given that created being one of the rights of Allaah. 

Hence the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:“Whoever likes men to stand up for him, let him take his place in Hell.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi (2755); classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi. That is because this is part of the might and pride that belongs only to Allaah. 

See: Tafseer al-Tahreer wa’l-Tanweer by al-Taahir ibn ‘Ashoor (15/51). 

The caliph al-Mahdi entered the Mosque of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and the people all stood up for him except Imam Ibn Abi Dhi’b. It was said to him: Stand up; this is the Ameer al-Mu’mineen. He said: The people should only stand up for the Lord of the Worlds. 

Al-Mahdi said: Let him be, for all the hairs of my head have stood on end. 

Siyar A’laam al-Nubala’(7/144). 

The scholars of the Standing Committee were asked: Is it permissible to stand to show respect to any national anthem or flag? 

They replied: 

It is not permissible for the Muslim to stand out of respect for any national anthem or flag, rather this is a reprehensible innovation which was not known at the time of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) or at the time of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs (may Allaah be pleased with them), and it is contrary to perfect Tawheed and sincere veneration of Allaah alone. It is also a means that leads to shirk and is an imitation of the kuffaar in their reprehensible customs, and following them in their exaggeration about their presidents and in their ceremonies. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade imitating them. 

And Allaah is the Source of strength; may Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote. 

Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah (1/235). 

And Allaah knows best.

Well Jezebel, we don't agree on your quote, we believe GOD is the creator, and He is the one we listen to. We honor or country by honoring our military and flag. OUR COUNTRY IS BASED ON GOD OUR CONSTITUTION IS FOR OUR PROTECTION. WE HAVE SALUTED THE FLAG, THANKED GOD AND BROUGHT OUR CHILDREN UP THAT WAY. WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO LIVE HERE IF THEY DID NOT LOVE THIS COUNTRY THE WAY WE DO? WHY DO PEOPLE FROM OTHER COUNTRIES COME HERE IF THEY ARE NOT FOR WHAT WE ARE FOR? IF PEOPLE FROM OTHER COUNTRIES COME HERE JUST TO CHANGE US AND MAKE US LIKE THEM, WHY LEAVE THEIR COUNTRY? JUST WHAT ARE YOU FIGHTING FOR? I AM FIGHTING FOR PEACE, FREEDOM AND THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS, FOR LOWER TAXES, LESS GOVERNMENT AND FOR GOD TO BE PUT BACK INTO OUR EVERYDAY. I AM FIGHTING TO KEEP TERRORIST OUT OF OUR COUNTRY AND DO NOT WANT LAWS GIVEN TO US FROM FOREIGN COUNTRIES. I AM FIGHTING FOR THE PROTECTION OF OUR PRIVATE LANDS AND i DO NOT WANT THE UN TELLING US WHAT TO DO. I STAND FOR OUR MILITARY AND RESPECT THEM AND ANYONE HERE FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY SHOULD DO THE SAME BECAUSE IT IS OUR MILITARY THAT HAS GIVEN YOU THE FREEDOM OF YOUR SPEECH.

It is false. The owners turned over the video footage of the day in question to police and a few news crews and no one in uniform even went in the store that day. Of course no one talks about that, or how they humiliated these people and attempted to shut down their business. There's a large National Guard Baltallion in Bogalusa and Camp Shelby isn't that far, I was once in MCJROTC and me and a lot of my friends used to go in there in full uniform as well as Bogalusas' JROTC kids. If it were the case that they refused service to someone it was to that particular person for whatever reason not for what they were wearing. So a bunch of screwed up hillbilly rednecks went out there and made asses of themselves. Bet they felt even more dumb when my Marine cousin and about 15 of his friends all showed up with their trucks, ATVS and gas cans filled everything up bought buku food cigs tobacco drinks and ice while in full PT gear and Marine emblems all over their equipment! One of the protesters attempted to approach of the guys to talk him out of his purchase the Marine just laughed and said if Allah wants me before I make my way to hell lets just say he's gonna have to put up one hell of a fight. Don't believe everything you read!
