Jenene,

No decent minded human would accept or tolerate what happened in Amercia on 9/11. Actions of a few people killed many humans. These people were not only Jews and Christians but Muslims also. The loss of life in this manner is condemed by Islam and people who carry out such crimes cannot be described as Muslims.

But Jenene, this action by a group of people does not warrant the distruction of two countries (Afghanistan & Iraq). I wonder why the same treatment was not handed down to the Germans when Hitler who incidently was a Christian killed 3 to 5 million Jews. That is equal to 25,000 plane loads of people.

I could go on and on and describe what the IRA did in the UK and how many innocent men, women and children they killed but no one calls them Christian terrorists infact they no sit side by side with so called civilised politicians in the UK government.

In my opinion the world media should not have glorified the Taliban in the way that they did and should have called them terrorists like the IRA instead of Islamic terrorist.

Islam and Muslims condemn all acts of aggression and terrorism directed against humanity in which they themselves are the biggest targets.
