I am also a American Muslim that agrees with you in this issue. I have served in the U.S. Army for 5yrs. right after 911, about five days after to be truthful. Because i felt that anyone claiming Islam broguht them to do these crazy acts is telling a bold faced lie and have the wrong interpretation of the koran. I joined to help stop these people boom the country that i was born in and will continue to raise my family.

As a muslim i do see why many people here in America dont understand islam. Because many take time out to educate themselves about somthing until it happens. ex. After the massacre at virginia tech earlier this month....the biggest murder in America history. People seen the signs... may have contributed in one way or another and did nothing. Until only after he murdered many loved ones they talk about how many people thought he was crazy and etc.

I can see on both sides...1. Being American and 2. I know the history of this country..it wasn't nice.
