in response to reader comment: dont trust the followers of islam

Muslim clerics, or leader of muslim people tell the leaders of free countries, i.e. UK, USA, that muslim youth's actions to destruct and kill innocent people is based upon the countries' current policy. There are contradictions going on. First, Muslims, and all faiths, are alowed to practice their faith however they wish in western society. Nobody stops them from doing so. So now you say they want to blow up 10 planes and kill thousands of people. This is based on the fact that they dislike the current political policy towards muslim countries?

These same people who want to blow themselves up with planeloads of people are so sensitive to political issues, even if true, as they say, that they will kill themselves in order to change what? Whatever their grievances, they have mouths. Try speaking like the rest of the human world. If you have a problem, gather your people and verbalize it.

Once you've blown yourself up in a million little pieces, it's a little difficult to let your local politician know what bothers you about their foriegn policy. Oh, but that's how it's done in arab nations. The rich take oil money, become heads of state, ignore the poor, blame westerners for what they don't have. Then they suggest to blow themselves up so they'll go to heaven and meet 70 virgins. Don't arabs know that there's no such thing as 70 virgins, etc... The leaders of modern muslim countries have made it so it's a war based on religion. Their paranoia cannot be further from the truth. And by the way, it says in the koran that "we cannot trust infidels" meaning muslims should never trust anyone else. What a sad existence. Never to trust another person because they have a different set of religious beliefs. That's pathetic. They need to grow up and take responsibility for themselves already.
