Dear Kiana,

I appreciate your return comments, however if you are Muslim and do not side with the suicide bombers, then you need to speak out. Are there many Muslims in America and the rest of the world that are not suicide bombers and do not support them? If so, then why don't they show it. Why don't they condemn the Muslims which are using the religion to justify ruthless killings?

There was an article on this site about a ralley with Muslims for Peace in USA, however nobody hardly showed up! How many Muslims show up to riot and cause problems when the pope speaks or cartoons are offensive to them? What should the world believe: this is a peaceful group or a group that loves killing?

If the Muslims would like to be contributing to society and not know as murderers then they need to show it. however all we can see are the opposite. They cannot be bothered to show up for a rally to show that they really want peace, however to burn Israeli and American flags, they will always make it (this is not a peaceful act!). Moreover, whenever Americans or Jews are killed, Muslim countries give out candy, while when Muslims die or are killed there are no celebrations in the world. This is only because the rest of the religions in the world do not support killers, murders, suicide bombers, etc.

At the least, why don't you write to some of the Muslim countries to stop preaching hate in their text books? If you are not trying to solve the problem, you are actually supporting it.
