Not all Americans

Reader comment on item: "Death to America"
in response to reader comment: Arabs, Muslims all hate America even if they don't say it

I understand why you believe all of this but think about our point of view. Since 9/11 all we think about Muslims is that they are terrorists which is not true. Being in the 3rd grade (9 years old) when 9/11 happened I have grown up around racism towards Muslims. I am completely against it but I understand it. We had no reason to be attacked. There is other ways to deal with the anger towards us. Yes, I am aware our president is an idiot and has made some horrible choices military wise but that isn't the entire American population making that decision.

And about the comment that we are all idiots without brains who only care about the celebrites lives, it is completely false. Some are like that but not all. I am 15 and I am surrounded by teenagers like that but I also surround myself with some intellectual adults who all understand your point of views. I am sorry you have so much anger towards Americans but please keep in mind we don't think as one and we don't all agree with our president.

I have a quesion though, What do you think about us having a Muslim president elect? Are you glad or angry? I just want your view because I don't know any Muslims that could tell me what they think about it. Let me know what you think about my reponse. Please don't take any of this sarcastic I am trying to have an intellectual conversation with someone in a different part of the world with different views then my own.

Thanks for your time,

Tori
