The expressed views by Imdad Ali on the subject issue are so typically slanted as to negate the true facts and represent a philosophy devoid of compehensibility.

The tenets of Islam are those of violent destruction of "non-believers and Jews" who are intelligent enough to recognize the fallacy of trying to destroy those who are in disagreement with the concept that killing an individuals is a valid means of advancing an agenda that is rooted in violence, as docuumented in Sura after Sura in the Qu'ran. In all the religious teachings of the various faiths I have yet to find where other faiths are fundamentally based on the principle of the wanton taking the lives of those who are not in agreement with their beliefs.

Tragically, the citizens of the world who base their belief on love and reason are insufficiently informed of the true nature of Radical Islam and thus can become its victims. As we witness daily, the carnage that the Islamic extremists inflict on the innocent citizens of Iraq who belong to a different branch of Islam we of rational beliefs are apalled. These very acts exemplify the true nature of Radical Islam and the perpetrators are not considered fit to be called humans. The founding fathers of our nation were endowed with divine wisdom when they mandated "seperation of church and state" Perhaps at some future date this same divine wisdom will, at last, become evident to the Islamic hierarchy and the rulers of that world and the continual and senseless killing will end once and forever, humanity demands no less.
