So are you saying that all or most of the worlds billion or so Muslims are serial killers?
Assuming that because some Muslims commit terrorist acts all Muslims are terrorists is just a mirror image of those Muslims who believe that because some Christians butchered Bosnian Muslims, carving crosses on their chests to make the point, all Christians are Crusaders.
Muslim people are beloved by God. Remember Pope Benedicts words in Cologne this year vatican.va/holy_father/benedict_xvi/speeches/2005/august/documents/hf_ben-xvi_spe_20050820_meeting-muslims_en.html
I am certain that I echo your own thoughts when I bring up one of our concerns as we notice the spread of terrorism. I know that many of you have firmly rejected, also publicly, in particular any connection between your faith and terrorism and have condemned it. I am grateful to you for this, for it contributes to the climate of trust that we need.
Terrorist activity is continually recurring in various parts of the world, plunging people into grief and despair. Those who instigate and plan these attacks evidently wish to poison our relations and destroy trust, making use of all means, including religion, to oppose every attempt to build a peaceful and serene life together.
Thanks be to God, we agree on the fact that terrorism of any kind is a perverse and cruel choice which shows contempt for the sacred right to life and undermines the very foundations of all civil coexistence.
