The issue is the refusal of Muslims to acknowledge reality

Reader comment on item: Jihad in America: Grand Deception

Submitted by sara (United States), Feb 26, 2013 at 17:16

The real problem is that the Muslims refuse to accept or acknowledge that there are Muslims who are committing terror in the name of their religion. They are so intent on convincing everyone that Islam is the religion of Peace that they refuse to acknowledge that this notion is challenged on a daily basis by some terror attack or act around the world.

If they would only join forces with the rest of us who cannot help but recognize that Islamic terror in the name of Islam is a stark and irrefutable reality, and the poliitcally correct nuts would take their heads out of the sand and dismiss their refusal to identify things by religion or religious motive, then we might finally be able to work towards a united front to make some progress.

This idea of Islamic terror /jihad is not based on fantasy, persecution, racism or anything else but pure raw facts. Why would we be constantly urged to disregard the religion of those who kill in the name of it? It makes no sense and it feels like half of us, plus the Muslims who insist that these terrorists are not 'real Muslims' live in an alternate reality. Muslims who refuse to accept that these jihadists are killing in the name of Islam are creating the problem in the first place. Or worse, some are just pretending that they are disassociated but secretly sympathise. As long as they refuse to do anything, they will be lumped in with the ideology, we can't help it.
