To the editor:
What’s the point? Why would a Coptic Christian want to inflame the Muslim world by putting an undocumented and offensive video on the Internet? Because he knows it will inflame the Muslims. So then why did the Muslims, knowing that they are being baited, go into a rampage? Because they feel like they are being attacked, again.
Most Muslims live their religion and so highly honor the Prophet that any word against him is a word against themselves and their beliefs. Think about this: The religion of Islam has been hijacked by 30-40,000 individuals called terrorists and a lot of Americans blame all 1.6 billion Muslims for the terrorists’ actions. Is that fair? Of course not, but it happens all the time.
Then a guy puts out a video and the Muslims erupt. They are not responding just to the events of the film, they are responding to all the unfairness and injustice that has been heaped on them by those who want to destroy Islam.
Muslims are fighting against terrorists just like the governments of the world are fighting against them. Muslims want to end the death and destruction caused by the terrorists and Muslims want justice, equality and fairness, just like everyone else in the world. They don’t hate American freedom, they honor it.
Don’t blame Muslims for the riots in the Middle East; blame the terrorists who have provoked it. And with the Muslims (not against them) fight the terrorists.
