peace be upon you dears
"I am a Muslim. I am an American. As an American Muslim, I want to express my deep sadness and anguish at the tremendous loss of life that occurred on Tuesday (September 11, 2001).
Islam is a religion of peace. Islam does not promote terrorism or the killing of people.
I cannot sit by and let the world think that Islam is a killing religion. It hurts me to see what radical people are doing in the name of Islam. These radicals are doing things that God is against. Muslims do not believe in violence.
If the culprits are Muslim, they have twisted the teachings of Islam. Whoever performed, or is behind, the terrorist attacks in the United States of America does not represent Islam. God is not behind assassins. Anyone involved in this must pay for their evil.aused this tragedy and adding to the hatred that already exists in the world will not help. Instead, we should try to understand each other better.
Americans are warm, loving and hospitable people, and we share many of the same values. I ask that churches and synagogues all across the nation invite representatives of the Islamic faith into their places of worship, to better understand Islam. This could help us all respect each other more
I pray that God blesses the people and families of those who were killed, and our great country.

Location: algeria

Your location is listed as Algeria. So I doubt you are an American Muslim.

Islam is not what causes the violence, it is Muslims who do it in the name of Islam.

When that stops then the world will see Islam as peaceful.

Is this an example of your religion of peace in Algeria? I want no part of it, and you are wrong, many do believe in violence, and they are just as much Muslim as you are.

Other essays in this series discuss government repression of religious groups. The situation in Algeria is different. Their government grants religious freedom to all faith groups. But some religious groups appear to be exterminating whole villages and attempting to destabilize the country. Almost all of the victims are fellow Muslims. At least one group has also targeted all non-Muslims for death. RELIGIOUS INTOLERANCE IN ALGERIA

Regardless of where he's from he's hit all of the points of what is needed to bring all of these competing religions together. And there lies the problem: these religions are all competing for the same people!

What gives you the right to speak for all muslims? There are many that are quite violent, and quite vocal about being muslims.

You are quite right. No person represents all Muslims. We speak only for ourselves and those who commit acts of terror or any form of aggression speak only for themselves.

I can only say I do not know any violent, terroristic Muslims.

Please look at each of us as individuals and understand nobody represents Islam or all Muslims. We each speak only for ourselves.

I doubt you do know any...they'd probably want to kill you just like they want to kill me....since I'm an infidel, and you're likely not a "true muslim" to them.

Muhammad.

OP, over 5000 muslim women every year are victims of "honor killing". In Britain alone, there are over 17,000 cases of documented "honor violence" committed against muslim women yearly. Your religion is not a peaceful one.

Well I do have a fairly high profile and am easy to locate. I do have the title of Sheik and have often served as an Imam. I have only recently become a resident of North Dakota and have caught my share of flak for trying to establish a mosque. But do manage to have an online Mosque and "Ministry" which is seen world wide. You may see part of it here:

alkhatoobah

I do know more than a few Muslims and they all know how to locate me. Yes at times we do have disagreements over some things. But, at no time have I ever had a Brother or sister question my being Muslim.
