I don't know if I believe in your sentiments. I am a Christian and have seen a certain segment of the religion hijacked.people will take anything, including religion, and bastardize it.

My problem is that the so called "mainstream muslims" do not voice their opposition to these kooks forcefully enough. I believe that they fear for their safety, but without their direct commentary and absolute diapproval we will all be in physical danger. These "mainstream muslims" say no one will listen to them, but their psycho peers seem to find many ways to get their point across.

It is time for moderate muslims to FORCEFULLY come out against what is happening.
