Contrary to what Heather claims --

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: Why This Matters

Submitted by John A. Hilfirty (United States), Jul 9, 2008 at 22:03

Contrary to what Heather said, we are NOT fighting a war against MUSLIMS, we are fighting a war against TERRORISTS, who may or may not be MUSLIMS.

This principle has been repeated over and over. Indeed, the majority of MUSLIMS are peaceful people who do not share or support the views of the extremists who claim that their violent acts are called for by their religion.

In my home town, we have many MUSLIMS who are caring, friendly, peace loving people, who abhor the terrorist acts against America, which is as much their nation as anyone's.

Do not label all MUSLIM people because of the acts of a small fanatic percentage..
