Notes from Neal: Please Support My Efforts In Clearly Defining the War on Islamic Terror

Dear Fellow South Dakotans,

Since September 11, 2001, I have watched as patriotic Americans have fought and sacrificed their limbs and their lives in an endless war on terror. 

We can no longer afford to avoid the root cause of the war on terror. We need to face this problem head on. 
I’ve decided to lead the effort to focus on the root cause of terror; the full implementation of Islamic Law that believes one should be killed for leaving Islam. Fourteen Islamic countries fully implement Islamic Law, known as Sharia Law, and hundreds of millions of people subscribe to this hateful and deadly ideology around the world. To keep our cities and citizens safe, we must recognize the real threat of Islamic terrorism.

I need your help.

Today, we are in a fight against ISIS, the deadliest Islamic terror organization on the face of this earth. Several years ago, it was Al Queda. Before that it was the Taliban. There are over 20 Islamic terror organizations our military and intelligence services have identified as terrorist threats. They go by the names of Boko Horom, Al Shabab, Hamas, Hezbollah, and the Muslim Brotherhood, just to name a few. Nearly all of them have terrorist cells being monitored by our intelligence services right here in America.

Meanwhile, our weak political leaders  send our loved ones into the endless war on terror but are afraid to identify the root cause of the war on terror. They go so far as telling us, “Islam has nothing to do with terror” and that “Islam is a religion of peace.”

Avoiding the root cause of terror is an insult to our brave troops and their families, and is a slap in the face to all those living under a hateful and deadly ideology that teaches one should be killed for leaving Islam.

I cannot stand by and watch as another American soldier is sent into battle without a clear mission.  America has always fought, and must always fight, for those who wish to live in complete freedom. We cannot allow the families of our soldiers to suffer knowing their loved ones might have sacrificed their lives in vain.

Please call or write your state legislators in Pierre today. Tell them you agree with Identifying the root cause of terror. Write your own letter expressing your feelings. Please do it today. Tomorrow is too late. 

Your poltical leaders need to hear how you will support them when they take a brave stand.

Attached is a press release including a copy of SCR 13 for you to review.

Please call your Senator today to voice your support.

Call your Representatives 


Below is the list of legislators for you to email. Forward this email to all of them by copying and pasting the email addresses into an email. 

Simply write, “I  support SCR 13 and will stand by you for taking a bold stand for our service men and women in their fight for freedom.” Leave your name and city of you feel comfortable doing so. More importantly, forward this email your friends, and have them do the same.

Thank you for your patriotism.

With Kindest Regards,

Neal Tapio
District 5 State Senator
Watertown, SD
