Mr Daniel,

in your reply to Hadi, u said: "Hadi, i know you find it hard to believe they are muslims because of your firm believe that there is no wrong in islam. The truth is that those guys are actually muslims like it or not.". I say No, obviously they are not!!! That is because they have not obeyed the one source which ALL Muslim, Sunnahs and Shi'as, agree on… which is Qura'an.

Qura'an says that those who kill others for invalid reasons shall face the penalty of death, it also says that those who kill their brothers (i.e. other Muslims) shall face the penalty of death. So they obviously have to look for "some loopholes in the laws prophet mohammed gave them" as you have mentioned. But wouldn't that mean that they must somehow pretend that Saudies and Jordanians are not Muslim in order to bomb them and kill innocent "Muslim brothers". Wouldn't that also mean they must justify killing someone just because they are not Muslim and consider that to be "a valid reason" which of course is not valid simply because even the prophet Mohammad himself had a Jewish neighbour and the prophet used to eat with him too.

Generalising that terrorism is an act of Islam is a saying that I have not yet met ,in person, a muslim whom will agree on. Not a single Shi'i from Lebanon or Iraq, not a single Wahhabi from Saudi Arabia, not a single Soofi, or Sunni from else where.

Regards,

Hamzah Kattan
