Missing The Point

Reader comment on item: Islamists, Get Out
in response to reader comment: ISLAM-The religion of peace

Tony you completely missed Nida's point. She doesn't deny that Muslims (maybe 'so-called Muslims', in her view) commit these crimes, but her declaration is that these acts are NOT Islamic ie they are at odds with the teachings of the Islamic faith.

She's saying that Al-Quaeda are no more representative of the religion of Islam than the Ku Klux Klan are of Christianity.
