not from what I read

Reader comment on item: Jihad or Criminality?
in response to reader comment: No, the original article is about Muslims who murder with an Islamist motive

As far as I read the article HAD QUESTIONED if in fact they DO use religion as a motive..leaving it open for discussion. Some people fill in the blanks for themselves based on their own prejedices. Again, I do not say there are not people who do kill in the name of religion. It is evil and should be stopped .But I am not convinced every petty criminal or even violent lowlife criminal with a muslim sounding name is doing the crime for Jihad. my guess they dont care too much about their religion...and No maybe the latino gangbangers arent doing it in the name of their religion either but they are involved with identical criminal activity .I wouldnt doubt if these guys ran together and did crimes together...The article did not state that these criminals actually said they are actualy doing it in the name of Jihad either.that was my point.

Submitting....
