‘When Benjamin Franklin helped establish a non-denominational religious meeting house in Philadelphia, he emphasized its non-sectarian nature by stating that "even if the Mufti of Constantinople were to send a missionary to preach Mohammedanism to us, he would find a pulpit at his service".
In ‘Autobiography of Ben Franklin’
‘Other American Revolution soldiers with Islamic names include Salem Poor, Yusuf Ben Ali, Bampett Muhamed, Francis Saba, and Joseph Saba.’
In ‘Muslims in America’
‘In 1776, John Adams published "Thoughts on Government," in which he praises the Islamic prophet Muhammad as a "sober inquirer after truth"
William Lancaster said:.[31]
Let us remember that we form a government for millions not yet in existence.... In the course of four or five hundred years, I do not know how it will work. This is most certain, that Papists may occupy that chair, and Mahometans may take it. I see nothing against it.
In ‘Could a Muslims be president’
(Why not, we have had a half Muslim so far, and he did his job fine)
‘Alexander Russell Webb is considered by historians to be the earliest prominent Anglo-American convert to Islam in 1888. In 1893 he was the only person representing Islam at the first Parliament for the World's Religions
In ‘Islam and Muslims …..’
(more have come and still more coming)
Stop making fun.
If a Muslim had blown himself up and killed Americans back then Franklin would have demanded JUSTICE and banned them.

Mosque should be viewed as what they are: terrorist training camps! The FBI should have them bugged and watched 24/7. Islam is a satanic 'religion' founded by a child molester named Mohammad.
The number of mosque in USA doubles for every 16 years, approximately, thus the number of Muslims, theoretically.

In 160 years, the number of mosques will be about 500 times of today. Muslim population will be 5x500 = 2.5 billion in USA alone.

USA will be capable of holding 2.5 billion, no problem about that.

We protect the oppressed and liberate those captive. We toppled the despotic regimes in Iraq and Afghanistan and gave the citizens therein an opportunity to live free. God (the REAL God) bless America.

You are a commie FOOL! The USA saved the world from the evil Japs and Nazi Germany in WWII! The USA provides more aid to disasters around the world then all other nations combined.

The USA has had enough nukes to destroy the planet for over 50 yrs but has not used any of these weapons.

WE SHOULD NUKE IRAN BEFORE THEY USE A NUKE.

Indeed, they helped get rid of the evil Japanese empire from Malaysia and ther general Pacific region.

Perhaps you'd be happier under Japanese empirical rule?
