A Message for America We Need to Hear More About, But Probably Won't

Terrorist Attacks on U.S. Soil by Group

Fact: Not all Arabs or Muslims are terrorists or bad people ... however, those like ISIS Leader and Caliph-in-Waiting: Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, or al-Qaeda’s newest “Leader” and formerly bin-Laden's #2, Ayman al-Zawahiri seen to think that they speak for and to the Muslim world like no one else, chanting: “Either join us or die. We are the only religion to be practiced and recognized. Non-believers will be killed.” Etc., etc., etc. We have seen their handiwork at it were.

I seriously wonder why level-headed Muslims, et al ARE NOT speaking out and taking up arms to erase those two all they stand for. If they are, we need to hear their stories more and more, too.  Such action would be like wiping out Nazism, Communism, and Fascism, and that would be best for the entire world.

If anyone believes that the only way to get any kind of law and order or get more people signed up for your cause, or your religion is from the barrel of a gun or blade of a knife, then I honestly believe that we as human beings are in very bad shape

This from CNN, who published an article entitled Study: Threat of Muslim-American terrorism in U.S. exaggerated. That was according to a study released by Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Yet, millions of Americans continue to live in mortal fear of radical Islam, a fear propagated and inflamed by mostly right wing sources.  If one follows the cable news networks for example, it seems as if all terrorists are Muslims. It even becomes (weakly) axiomatic in some circles to chant: “Not all Muslims are terrorists, but nearly all terrorists are Muslims.” 

Food for thought as it were. Thanks for stopping by.
