in response to reader comment: wow, this a great discussion... from scholars to numbskulls

Adil,

thanks for the history lesson. I agree that not every muslim fits into the stereotype that you believe is being perpetuated. However, no matter what has happened in the past, it doesn't justify the killing of people in today's societies. Anywhere. They did not live in the past, nor did they influence the events of the past. They live today and influence the events of today.

To kill a person today for an atrocity committed even a decade ago is based on flawed logic and festering hate. Your inability to discern this simple truth without it having to be told to you illustrates exactly what is wrong with today's Muslims. The common man is not willing to be the victim of these senseless attacks for much longer and when retribution comes, it will be swift and deadly and will happen based on the foolish actions of Islam today, and not hundreds of years ago.

BELIEVE THAT.
Submitting....
