"I hate those who killed women and children and innocent persons by the attack of 9/2001 "

How does Islam define innocent? Were any of the people killed on 9/11 deserving of their fate?
I'm glad to hear you hate these perpetrators, but what are you doing about the people who preach that these attacks were justified? If you came face to face with Osama bin Laden, would you kill him or praise him? Do you hate him? He was the architect of all those deaths.

You talk about how Mohammad had to use violence in Medina because people wanted to kill him.

How is blowing up a movie theater or a bus stop self-defense? None of these people were out to kill those who murdered them.
All of these actions are being justified by the Koran.

If you think they're wrong, what are you doing about it? Actions speak louder than words.
