"As long as you live in the USA as a citizen and a legal resident you certainly must abide by the laws of the United States. Falling in trouble with law is worse than the fact that part of your taxes is used by the government to display some sort of anti-Islam campaigns, such as giving full and blind support to the Israeli atrocities in Palestine.
As Muslims in the USA, citizens and legal residents, while abiding by the law we are also required to be proactive in the political and social arena to change the unjust policies undertaken by the US government. Such changes can only be accomplished through active participation in the national and state affairs of our country. Remember that it's the duty of the citizens and legal residents of this country to help the government improve and cater for people's welfare. This is our destiny as American Muslims and our duty that our religion requires us to do in this society. We must realize that Allah Almighty sent the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, with divine message as a mercy for mankind. We have to make this mercy a reality in America.
