Believers of Islam looked upon as terrorists.

Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism

I ask myself why are believers of Islam looked upon as war like or terrorists by those in western countries? Well I think there are a fewl reasons. One might be that Muslims don't share the good side of there faith with the world we believe what we see, hear and read. Another might be that western infedels as we are called see believers in the Islamic faith killing each other in Iraq. I venture to say more citizens of Iraq are being killed by suicide bombers than by American soldiers.

I think it is time the citizens of the Islamic countries stood up and let their leaders know it is time to end that type of bloodshed. I mean defending your country is different than killing your own people. Yes many revolutions have been fought. Take the American Civil war, Americans killing Americans. It still doesn't make sense to me. I think it is time for Muslims all over the world to demand an end to the killing of Muslims by Muslims. Other than the fact that the loss of so many innocent lives is a terrible trajedy. it re-enforces the world view that Muslims are terrorists. I don't think that people no matter what faith they are should kill others for what they believe or don't believe. In the end won't God sort it all out?
