Of all they have in the Koran, they focus intensely on killing and lying

Reader comment on item: CAIR: 'Moderate' friends of terror

Below is a copy of a letter I wrote to three CAIR type organizations; two of them had bogus email addresses listed, so I got them back. The other one never answered. Anyway, below is what I wrote them.

Excuse me,
It's very hard to understand how members of Islam do not speak out against the violence caused by Islamists. Also, by allowing imam speakers to teach hatred and scream hatred and even call for murder, it makes non-Moslems feel that it's condoned and supported by other Islamists. That means that many Moslems want Islamic teachers to teach violence and murder.
The whole world is watching.
Each day or week there is someone showing off and killing herself or himself to display how incredibly pious they are (while coincidentally picking up 25 or 50 grand for the folks back home).

Question: Imagine how many people will say, "Oh look how much they kill and hate, so Islam must be a wonderful religion and therefore I want to join!"
Answer: Zero.

Everyone who owns a radio or TV, hears or sees constant reports of this imam and that one screaming for hate and murder. Or, we see Moslems murdering people in Indonesia and Iraq and England and Spain and France and Japan and China and Greece and MANY other countries.

Why you don't stand up and LOUDLY PROCLAIM your disappointment with those who twist the Koran to make it be center of death and destruction? The killers who are so often referred to as, "martyrs" are really simply murderers and are only hurting their fellow Moslems, and they insult your Koran (besides killing people). When people hear that you call them, "martyrs" because they are following the law of the Koran, they hate the Koran.
Your "martyrs" should be called, "The Embarrassers of Allah."
Those "martyrs" are spitting in your religion's face and in the face of the Koran, while you think it's raining.
