The people depicted in the above photos ARE the proper and true representation of the vast majority of Muslims -- those who are just as horrified and
upset by terrorism as we Americans are.
We appreciate the support, and may Allah bless you and yours in all things.

We all understand that, and I feel sorry for those people who have to deal with the consequences of the extremists....but I still have to say there is
a significant portion of Muslims who have extremist beliefs.
Just as there are a significant number of right-wing Christians with radical beliefs too.
Religious extremists come in all shapes and sizes, in some countries they attack others physically, in the USA they often attack others through
lobbying, media crusades, political speeches, accusations and insult. Their mission seems to be removing the rights of others and subjugating people
to become "less than" them. Why are these Christian radicals considered to be any different than the Taliban, or any other religious group
victimizing others and trying to take control through religious arrogance?
IMO, extremism isn't just blowing things up or killing people who don't follow your rules, it's everything from the radical Christian church
banning black people from marrying to the bigoted religious group lobbying government to change state law.
So, what action would you take against Christian extremists in the West?
The only solution - in my opinion - is to remove religion (all religion) from governance of any kind. From state to central government, there needs to
be a concerted effort to make it clear that laws will never be changed to suit a religious group when those laws affect the entire population of a
state or country.
To the OP, thank you for sharing these images. I think it's vitally important to remind people that not all religious people are sick and twisted.
Many are moderate and understand right from wrong.
