Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?
in response to reader comment: Mohammed was not a prophet

So then according to you, did Jesus prophesize that you should exact revenge in the form of murder against people who oppose you? I don't think so. I believe Ghandi said "an eye for an eye and the world goes blind." 9/11 was the result of extremist views, not muslim views. Do you even know any muslims, or are you just judging the whole culture as extremists... ?

I severly doubt you would make such remarks in the real-world. Perhaps you feel empowered by the anonymity the internet gives you. I think everyone feels less inhibited to express extremist views (as yours are) because we don't have to deal with people's reactions and we don't have to deal with the consequences of our actions.

Your views and the views of the people who agree with you remind me very much of the Holocaust tragedy. Hitler convinced an entire nation that all their problems were because of Jewish people. If we just exterminate the Jews, we can live without fear. You've picked your scape goat (muslims) and now you've invaded their countries illegally and are murdering their civilians all in the name of "justice." And this doesn't disgust you? Psychology teaches us that the more isolated you are from killing, the less you feel responsible for it, but your acknowledgement and acceptance of it is utterly horrifying. Will you feel proud of your claims in 10 years, when you can look back and say "I supported a genocide?" I hope not. Innocent people are paying for your ignorance, congratulations.
