Peace loving Muslims

Reader comment on item: [Naveed Haq and] "Sudden Jihad Syndrome" in Seattle
in response to reader comment: Two Must Read News from Eurobia - The Guardian

Typical Muslim narrative (from The Guardian http://www.guardian.co.uk/terrorism/story/0,,1842393,00.html):

"We are peaceful people. We want to live in peace but the new generation, they can't take what is happening. It's unjust the foreign policy in this country, they [the government] are killing Muslims everywhere, in Iraq, in Afghanistan, everywhere. When the new generation see what is happening on the TV, their blood boils."

They forcefully deny any possibility that Muslims could have been involved in such barbarian murderous plot against their warm hospitable hosts, but on second breath they spew out their hatred against them and admit that "their blood boils". The same kind of twisted logic like that of Iran's President Ahmedinijad, who is denying the Holocaust and maintains that such things were not possible, but he never forgets to add that Israel must be wiped out. Very nice people!
