I also respect to your opinions too.You are a typical western person who is sick and tired of the crimes committed by the so called islamic terrorists.This scares and makes you angry which is also very normal. But you are not reacting against to all the muslims in the world or even to the ones who live in your country.You try to understand the other side's feelings. you even try to see good things about the muslims.This makes you a noble person.

Only thing I can criticize about you is that you are,like the others, trying to prove that real, true İslam is the ugly terrorists' one. I am not an expert in islam. And I dont need to be. You no way can be. You should not focus on this.A ll religions,are just our beliefs.Not scientific proven definite realities. We believe in god,we try to be good people,stay away from evil and we believe there is another form of life after death and we will face with the things we did in this life.This is it. The rest is details. So if anybody,from any religion for any reason claims that his or her religion orders him or her violence or anything that would give harm to others than that belief is not a religion,dont deserve respect or freedom and in fact it is a crime organization. So Muslims and others can believe anything, any way they wish to, but if they do or say even one word favoring terrorism with any reason they must be punished .Everything must be logical.
However,I dont think that in the world all the unstabilities are caused by İslamofachists.Their strength is being exagerrated. I strongly believe that USA government with the leader Mr Bush also have good deal work in this mess.
Finally I want you to know that muslim countries in itself are very different from each other.The more the country is backward(excluding oil money) their people practice islam more backward way. And this is the problem of İslam. But if we were neighbours with you I am very sure that there would be no racial problems between us,in fact we could be good friends. Cheers..
