Reader comment on item: What Do Terrorists Want? [A Caliphate and Shari'a]

Submitted by JACQUES HADIDA (United States), Jul 26, 2005 at 15:33

How can one give credence to a sentence like:

when we know that most ,if not all, terrorism originates from Islam, that Islam (by their own admission) is what guides these people?

Islam is in no way an innocent bystander, Islam is the cause, the reason, the raison d'etre for terrorists behavior.

The bystanders are the people who die because of Islam's bombs.
Islam is the detonator of these bombs, not the bystander.

If statistics show that one percent of Islamist British population (16.000) is considered terrorist then we are siting on a time bomb ready to explode any minute. And what are we doing about it?
Claiming that Islam is a religion of peace.

I have had it and will stop right here.
