Not extremists and not fringe

Reader comment on item: [President Bush and] Naming the Enemy

Submitted by Moshe Dar (Australia), Aug 17, 2004 at 05:18

The terrorists are good Muslims.

They fulfill their duty under Islam.

They follow the teaching of Allah and His messenger. They do what Muhammad did. They would make him very proud.

It is good that people are now using more specific terms for the enemy. We now need to take it one step further and declare that the inspiration for the terrorists is not an extreme version of Islam, but Islam itself. This is it. There is nothing else.

There is no moderate Islam.

We must acknowledge it!
