Islam needs to be redefined

Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:

You are right in saying that this war has to be tackled just as the war against communism was tackled. But for that to happen, people first need to recognise that Islamic teachers are the problem. The teachers instill the idea into young muslims minds that musims are being victimised everywhere in the world. They also instill an islamic identity in the muslims to the exclusion of all their other identities.

Most non-muslim people in this world are still echoing the 'Islam is a religion of peace' line. Until the world at large acknowledges that the problem and the solution both lie within Islam itself, nothing can be done to solve this problem.
