Submitted by Innocent and curious:

Q: Muslims in the forum: do you think he is innocent, no matter what the results of his trial will be ?

My reply: No. If the trial is fair and if he's found guilty of conspiring of murder, why should anybody think that he's innocent?

Q: do you believe he is a martyr ? a hero maybe ? a terrorist ?

A: Murderers and criminals are not martyrs, or heros- no matter what position he (or she) holds- he can be a president or can be a student, or a beggar.

Q. do you support him ?

Ans: A murderer is a murderer. We do not support someone who is behind killing of inncocent people. We do not support or vote for him. Do you support a murderer? Do you vote for a murderer? Think about it.

Q: Muslims and non-Muslims: how do you think the Muslim world will/should react to his execution, if this will be his faith ?

Ans: I am not a fortuneteller. I can't see the future, or guess about other people's reaction. But what do YOU think will happen? I've heard that the criminals in the western countries get support from the members of the public, most of them even receive marriage-proposals from lovely ladies. Do you think Mussaui will receive such support and proposals from some American beauties?
