in response to reader comment: You are Correct

Hi Susan,

Thank you for your message.

I broke out laughing when I read:

"I feel that there must be a serious genetic disorder common [in some] Muslims, or possibly a nutritional deficiency that causes them to be insane."

I was very lucky to have had an experience, which allowed me to look beyond my own small world. For 2 years I helped organize an exhibit involving Muslim and Jewish artists. It was a fascinating journey to learn about art as well as listening to the heartbeat of artists from around the world.

I have been very lucky to meet passionate Muslims who care so deeply to bring positive change and are working hard to achieve it. They are the people who I call "a Light unto the Nations" and it is with hope, many will join them by their side.

Here are just 2 who live in Ontario, Canada:

Salim Mansur

Tahir Aslam Gora

...

There is no doubt a large number of Muslims have negative views of America/Europe/Australia/Israel.

The small but very significant number that advocate violence … I agree with you…they are all certifiably insane ….
