My dear SULTAN, you dont have any idea why we feel the way we do, do you. You see you have hit the nail on the head. You say people like you and treat you well untill they find out you are a muslim. Now you know that it its not you, but the way your religion has affected the way people see you. And what have you done about it. Nothing.

You come across as a moderate and we know that there are many more of you than there are Islamists and Islamic radicals. You all have a much better chance of making your point to stop the violence than we do. They dont like or trust us, do they. So please SULTAN stop your complaining and do something about it. Instead of talking to me telling me how hard done by you are ,convince your other moderate muslim friends to join you in a concerted effort of ridding the world of the radicals that, like it or not, colour our feelings. Telling me you "hate them" is pointless. Telling them you "hate them" ... now that's something.
