I can agree with some of what you say. Its wrong that some Muslims have been wrongfully accused of being terrorists, when they are getting a "guilty-by-association" reputation. Its a tragedy that even after the Geneva Convention people are still beaten and tortured in prisons, the sad thing is my own country is guilty of this in Abu Grahb Prison and Guantanamo Bay.

There are two points I disagree with you on tho. 1st, no one is trying to take Islam away from anyone, that's not the issue.

2nd, when you said "accused without evidence" and said "just like Osama bin Laden", no one is gonna buy that. Osama has released video tapes and has undeniably confessed to being responsible for 9/11 and other terrorist activities. Bin Laden is an evil coward who sends young men to do his dirty work by promising them 72 virgin maidens for all eternity.

He is not a Muslim hero, he is a mass murderer and God or Allah whatever you wanna call him, the God of Abraham, is not on his side.
