This is a reply to all those emails and editorials targeting Muslims as the problem to everything.

Judging from your way of thinking and responses you all sound American to me, and so am I. But for some reason I don't see things the same way you do.

Even though I live in a very diverse city with all kinds of cultures, I haven't seen one incident that would change the way I think.

Islam is a religion just as Chrisianity, so why is it that the blame is going to the religion and not to the actual person. I don't see headlines screaming "Christian suspected of robbing a bank" they usually go after the person as an individual but with Muslims it's a different title all togehter "Muslim robbed a bank, Islam shuns this act" or something relevent.

I have many Muslim friends and, you know what, they are nicer to me than any white freind i have ever met. And keep this in mind; I am a chritian, even though christianity makes absolutly no sense to me.

They talk to me the way any one would talk to a person only nicer, they are conserned with my conserns and happy with my accomplishments.

Some have been my freinds since kindergarten, longer than any white friend i have ever had.
I suggest you all go and do some research and meet these people you talk so badly about and see what they are really about.
