It is refreshing to read that you personally do not equate Islam with terrorism.

Imams whose sermons are broadcast by Arab and Iranian media do not share that view. Daily these clerics exhort and command the faithful to murder Jews, Christians, Buddhists, and Hindus. This material is shown throughout the Arab world to people who want to be good Muslims.

Thank you for setting the record straight. I hope you are in touch with these clerics and with the politicians in the Arab and Iranian world. Be sure to let them know your opinion. It would be very brave of you to sign your name, and provide them your address so that they can respond to your statements. Surely they would be grateful for your corrections.
