Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?
in response to reader comment: wow

One can see you are a commited Muslim. No doubt your emotional attachment is strong. The internalization of your mythology is, however , problematic. One hears in your expressive communications hostility and anger and frustration directed at those whom you deem not 'understanding' your position. Do you have thoughts of martyrdom? How deeply do you hold your animosity toward infidels, Jews, and others not in your sect? Do you have violent thoughts directed toward others?

These are not uncommon among those who identify themselves as 'Muslims'. If you find these symptoms in yourself, consider seeking the help of a counselor...to be helped, but not without a sincere desire to bring change into your life. Once hostility becomes violence, counter measures are more difficult, and violence will typically get worse. best wishes.
