First I would like to say, I, just like you do, not want to blow anyone up, and certainly don't want to blow me up. And if i did, i would probably be in the house finding out how to do it and not at six flags. I am muslim,and I believe that i contribute good things to the community, i work for the DA's office in my community and i want to be a teacher. My husband works for government as well, and both of us hate the state that the Muslim community is in. We HATE the fact that Muslims around the world have lost their minds and we fear for our life just as anyone else do, because if anything happens in this country, uhh we gotta live here too.

Islam doesn't wish death on people because of their religion, and certainly not because of their nationality. I love how people say islam is racist(WHAT) how is that possible Islam is probably the most ethinically diverse religion there is. Might be more diverse than christianity, but definately as diverse. There are Christians who hate(especially racially) there are Jews who hate(racially and religiously), there are Buddhist, athiest, agnostic, etc etc who hate. And in some situations some of these people have proven to be VIOLENT under certain circumstances. I believe that Christians are in real denial about this one. I have one more thing to add, Muslims might be off today, but don't blame the religion, keep in mind that before Muhammad(saw) died he had this to say....

In 628 CE Muhammed The Prophet of God sent this charter of freedom to the monks of St. Catherine Monastery in Mt. Sinai who were living under Muslim rule:

"This is a message from Muhammad ibn Abdullah, as a covenant to those who adopt Christianity, near and far, we are with them. Verily I, the servants, the helpers, and my followers defend them, because Christians are my citizens; and by Allah! I hold out against anything that displeases them.

No compulsion is to be on them. Neither are their judges to be removed from their jobs nor their monks from their monasteries.

No one is to destroy a house of their religion, to damage it, or to carry anything from it to the Muslims' houses. Should anyone take any of these, he would spoil God's covenant and disobey His Prophet. Verily, they are my allies and have my secure charter against all that they hate.

No one is to force them to travel or to oblige them to fight. The Muslims are to fight for them. If a female Christian is married to a Muslim, it is not to take place without her approval. She is not to be prevented from visiting her church to pray.

Their churches are to be respected. They are neither to be prevented from repairing them nor the sacredness of their covenants. No one of the nation (Muslims) is to disobey the covenant till the Last Day (end of the world)."
