in response to reader comment: AnotherMuslim speaks

It is sad to see, at every turn, how anger and tunnel vision can lead one to narrow-minded generalizations and bigotry...indeed Muslims have committed atrocities, but there's hardly anything singular (or hidden) in that...adherents and non-adherents of religions have done so and will sadly continue to do so...

by the way, taqiyah is not lying to further the cause of Islam, it's hiding one's faith in order to avoid persecution - hence if a Muslim admits they are one, they are thusly not committing taqiyah...

a little learning goes a long way
