in response to reader comment: Muslims like myself

Nabil, you said: As for why Muslims like myself don't go out protesting against the barbaric acts of other "Muslims" around the world, the answer is simple: Most of us know we'll be wasting our time trying to convince them as they're crazy to begin with. And that's why I come here to express my feelings against them and to recommend that they be either thrown out of this country or charged and tried for treason. But that's not good enough for the likes of ... like you.

Really Nabil, that explanation seems like such a cop out to me and a refusal to face reality. If something heinous is being done in the name of my religion, in which I believe deeply, and the terrorists shout the words of my religion when they commit massacres of innocent people, muslim and non, screaming Allah Akbar! or G-d is great! Then I would feel a need to condemn their actions and distance myself vocally and clearly from such animals and speak out against them for ruining the reputation of my religion and say Not in My Name!

If more Muslims spoke out against the Muslims who terrorize innocents and believe that they will reach paradise by murdering infidels (and other Muslims as well), then maybe it would help the non-Muslims understand more clearly that they are a separate crazy Jihadidt sect and the non Muslims could work together with these Muslims to STOP THE TERROR ATTACKS, Inform on planned attacks, confront the Taliban, AL Qaeda, extremist groups , then maybe we would be getting somewhere at long last.

STOP blaming the messengers ,i.e. those who are appalled and distressed by the barbarities commited by these Jihadists. START blaming and naming the people who are killing in the name of your religion and speak on THEIR forums. WE ARE NOT THE ONES YOU HAVE TO CONVINCE!

Cordially,

Sara
