I don't have any problem with anyone's personal grief and statements of wrongs committed. The problem is that which comes when anyone goes after revenge. From that time on, the hatred and wrongs get perpetuated. That is why jesus preached so much on forgiveness. It can be bitterly hard to forgive, but that is the only thing that stops the rampant hatreds and ensuing violence.

I know of about 200,000 rapes committed by the Pakistani army against the women of Kashmir after they had put down a rebellion. What kind of justice is that? I know that back in the 9th century about 80 million Hindus died at the hands of Muslims. I know that the Muslim forces from Northern Africa slaughtered, raped, and tortured millions of people of every religion and non-religion in the name of conquest of the Middle East and Europe before anyone ever said "boo" to a Muslim.

I know that the controlling power of Islam has continued this rampant plethora of atrocities right up to today. The terrible nature of Islamic attacks seem to worsen by the day. This is the power that controls Islam whenever the so-called "peaceful" Muslims take gradual "peaceful" control of a nation. If you want to advance Islam peacefully, then please do. But, how will you assure that your "peaceful" advances will not be turned just as every single Islamic advance in the past has been advanced?? That is the pattern throughout all of Islam's history - "Oh, peace, peace, love, we mean you no harm! Now, please turn your back on us!" Slit, slice, rape, torture, burn, bomb, etc.

This IS the face of Islam. Jesus tells us to forgive a repentant sinner. Do you repent?
