An American Muslim Patriot Speaks
by Bajram Angelo Koljenovic with James Nathan Post
In the world of turbulent political and religious conflicts we are facing today, it might seem the idea that a Muslim could be an American patriot is becoming more and more alien. A Bosnian Muslim, Koljenovic emmigrated from Yugoslavia. In this bold and impassioned personal statement, he proclaims his own patriotism, and issues a challenge to other Muslim immigrant citizens like himself to stand up and be heard in defense of our United States of America.
Bajram Angelo Koljenovic
Angelo was raised in the Montenegrin highland village of Gusinje. Grandson of an Ottoman officer, son of a pioneer Communist, and one of the Muslim minority, he served in the Army of Yugoslavia before emmigrating to the United States in 1969. In Las Vegas, Nevada, he worked in the great casinos, teaching martial arts to the bodyguards of some of the celebrities who became his friends, looking out for the personal interests of some particularly important guests, and eventually owning his own restaurant.
"I want to express my deep love of life, and of people everywhere, and my great appreciation for my adopted homeland in America. This book is a very personal exhortation to all other Muslim Americans to stand up and proclaim our patriotism, and to all Americans to understand that the Muslim religion is very much in accord with the American way of peace, tolerance, and freedom."
Angelo now lives in Las Vegas with his wife Man Kiu and their children, still doing the work he loves meeting people in the grand resort hotels and welcoming them from all over the world to his town.
