From a Muslim

Reader comment on item: Terror & Denial [by Hadayat at LAX]

I always read these web discussions, never bothered to post anything though. Well from what I think and know, The 9-11 were arab/muslim, and they worked for Usama. Usama leads a terrorist group. The muslims over there are extremely uneducated. Uneducation leads to being narrow minded. And that leads to hate. There is no excuse of course for what happened in New York, it was plain wrong. As long as education is low over there, trust me, they will hate America and the Jews forever. But that is not what Islam teaches. Those terrorists have become hypocrites. You cannot kill innocents in the name of Islam.

Usama brain washes them, labels them as martyrs and makes them believe it is Jihad when it isnt. Pakistan's education level is rising, thats why you see full cooperation against terrorists. I dont hate jews, but Israel just adds to the fire everytime something happens. These terrorists were raised to hate Americans , by people who tought Islam incorrectly and in their own way. You dont get much apology frm Muslim nations because most of the people there feel that way. There arent that many good Muslims any more, i noticed the ones that have a higher ed ucation level feel as i do. I hate the terrorists more than anything, they have totally ruined the image of what i beleive in, have labeled muslims as animals, have caused mass racism/hate crimes, and only cause trouble. Its ironic frm what i was taught that Islam is a faith of peace, and it is totally known as the opposite. its sad, it breaks my heart but I will do what i can to change that. Meanwhile, there will always be bad guys and good guys. Lets hope all this violence ends soon. Its pointless.
