Where did you hear that? or is this just wishful thinking? I just do not believe you.
Then you wrote:

Nonsense: Islam has always been violent from the moment go back in 610CE. If you can find me a single Muslim that will agree with your statement i will find you a dozen that will tell you there is nothing wrong with islam and islam is the religion of peace.
Logic dictates that if the 9/11 Atrocity was committed in the name of islam by "pious" Muslims, there must be doctrines in islam that would ask believers to commit such acts. And it is for Muslims to find out these doctrines and fix them. As of now I have not heard any Muslim looking into the theological basis behind the 9/11 atrocity, and if you wish I will be glad to tell you the theological basis of such atrocity. Fixing them? Well that is a different story.
In Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism there is no such bogus doctrine as Jihad and of rewarding the terrorists 72 virgins in heaven or boys as in the case of Muhammad 3Atta if they are not into virgins. But there are also no sayings in any of these religions where the God of the universe and his rasul will share the loot collected from infidels (Q8:1)!
You need to read a lot more my dear Chris.
