Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?
in response to reader comment: I understand your point

Submitted by donvan (United States), Nov 8, 2007 at 17:04

No one wants to destroy the Muslims or their countries. The last thing Americans that I know want to do is destroy the Muslims . We want the Muslims to be safe,secure,free,happy, human beings. Enjoying their religion, living in peace and harmony with everyone.

That is my point, just because one has the power to do something, does not mean one must do it. Nor do we want to exploit your country, we really do want to give the Iraqis the opportunity to have a decent life. We know that you guys have had a bad deal.

I was in the US Marines, I have been in combat, believe me, no one wants peace more than those who must fight these wars. But we are a rich and powerful country, thats not a boast, it just a fact. The best way to protect ourselves is to help others out of desparate situations. But this 'Islamic' business, is bad news to us. It seems bizzare, violent,brutal, and uncivilized. We see the beheadings, hateful speech,and the literature seems deadly. We will destroy it ,if it becomes clear it is a choice between Islam and us.
