Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?
in response to reader comment: Every individual is different--do not generalize

Submitted by The Zionist (United States), Aug 12, 2006 at 18:31

I am getting very sick of people trying to tell me that Islam is a religion of peace. You have all heard of the old saying "if it looks like a duck, it's probably a duck." If members of Islam want to be viewed as anything other than terrorists, they must control their own people and take a proactive position against what now seems like an obvious acceptance of violence toward anybody that has a different belief system. I can only assume that the recent election results in the Middle East that put Hamas in power reflects the will of the majority and shows that the common Muslim argument that the problem stems from just a few radicals is at best misleading.

To prove otherwise, Muslims need to join together against violent acts with the same fervor they exhibit when they drag a charred body of a US serviceman through the streets. Only then will I be convinced that the majority are a peace loving people. I have yet to read about or hear any Muslim on TV or radio with a call out to the "peace loving people" to stand up and help dispel what they claim to be a misunderstanding of their "religion of peace." Until Islam's majority denounces their current ideology shared with none other than Hitler himself--that the prefect world is one free of Jews--they will need to sleep with one eye open; we will not sit on our hands this time--NEVER AGAIN . We have just begun to fight.
