Mohammad: I believe you are a totally honorable man, and have worked hard and honestly to make a living and follow your religion in good faith.... It is really refreshing to hear some honesty coming from the Muslim world.....I am not degrading your religion, it is just that Radical Islam has become entwined with the peaceful teachings.....Thank Goodness you are speaking out for peace, and fairness.....I think there are many muslims who would like to follow your example, but feel threatened if they should do so. How would you ever convince someone like Osama BinLaden or any of the Hijackers who hijacked 4 airplanes, and took down the WTC, and crashed United Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania?

In my opinion there needs to be clarity about the misinterpretation of the religion, because you feel you are being wronged by those who are violent. Certainly the many of you who are peaceful outnumber the muslims who stand for violence. I hope you can convince the others to stop their Jihad on Israel, The United States, and any country who does not submit to Islam, unless it is their free will to do so.

Sincerely, Ms. Anne
