100 bin ladens?

Reader comment on item: 100 Bin Ladens on the Way?

Your recent article was an excellent and timely approach to the problems of Islamic extremism, (though Koranically it is not extreme.)
I also pray that Terrorism as a weapon will be seen to be counter productive.
How do I love someone who is going to blow me up, & my children?
It would be great to include Muslims in the freedom loving peoples of the World.
Their Leaders have got to help us in this, to the greater good of all.
We ordinary people of the World, including those like the folks of Iraq, just want to be left alone to get on with living usefully.
We don't want to be guided or controlled by anybody, religious or otherwise, with the exception of the usual Laws governing normal behaviour to prevent anarchy.
Force by any of us does not take the place of peaceful discussion.
If I were foolish enough to threaten someone I would expect to be threatened back? Where would it end? May God bless us all, Terry.
