The trick of categorizing Muslims into moderate and extremists is now wasted.

Moderate Muslims for me are those who I categorize as less practicing Muslims.

Islam is there to exist besides your hatred and fear. The violence which you are promoting as solely tagged to Muslim is to be seen as a reaction of atrocities, extreme use of force and throwing justice out of the window. United Nations being used as a rubber stamp to trigger action against Muslims in Afghanistan, Iraq and Palestine. You cannot figure out the intensity of pain and grieve because you never experienced your innocent children dieing in front of you without committing any sin. The destruction in Iraq, Afghanistan etc. by US and Allied forces is beyond explanation in decent words.

Due to above acts, a general feeling is developed in those angry people who lost their innocent loved ones, to punish those who are responsible in equal level. When they will loose their loved ones who are innocent in the same manner, blood bathed, torn into pieces and roasted......then they will be able to understand the pain and suffering of those who are seeing this daily...

People like you who are enjoying life but closed eyes from the reality if God forbid you will experience the same situation like those innocent people who lost their loved ones...then you will be able to understand how painful that moment would be. At that point any person can decide to take the extreme revenge...his mind would not allow anything sane to enter....Suicide bombing, spraying bullets and things like that are taken as a reaction of atrocities...It is very easy to blame Islam for all such violence..but do you have any reporting system to find the atrocities committed by those Governments and forces...

Closing eyes from the reality is very very easy. I am standing with all of those who are tormented physically & mentally. I must say that restraints should be followed..but I cannot stop all of them, because their suffering has overcome their sanity....

I know you would not agree once again...That is your stubborn attitude...as usual
