in response to reader comment: Islam - and terrorism....revisited...

I am against any form of terrorism. Yet I disgree with you: Is there any evidence that Islam supports terrorism? Is there any passage in Koran that promotes terrorism? I do not think so. Sure, there are Islamites who believe that terrorism is justifiable. But this does NOT mean that there is a causal relation that makes Islamites terrorists. There are terrorists, and there are Islamites. And there may be a terrorist Islamite. But that is nothing more than a coincidence. You should see the difference between a coincidence and a causal relation. These two are too often mistakenly regarded as the same thing.
