Editors opinion:

"It is quite possible, to criticize and or condemn the Arab/Muslims for their acceptance of the fanatic Islamic terrorist groups...those that sponsor, as well as those who give aid to those horrible terrorist acts, without, becoming an anti-Islamic bigot. Radical Islamic demands for what they have called "justice", is so blood soaked, by past horrendous acts, it is completely discredited from any claim on your or my conscience, and it is not bigotry or racial hatred, to say so. 

It is certainly a  fact that not all Muslims are terrorists, but it is equally certain, and painfully true, that almost all terrorists are Muslims. The majority of those who manned the suicide bombings against buses, vehicles, schools, houses, and buildings all over the world were Muslim. Let us acknowledge this truth instead of denying it and move on and destroy this cancer which dwells within Islam and now threatens society as a whole.   The best defense against this kind of murderous violence is to limit the pool of recruits, and the only way to do that is for the Muslim society to isolate, condemn and denounce publicly and repeatedly the murderers - and not amplify, ignore, glorify, justify or "explain" their activities.
 
I don't possess the power to change your mind... just to expand your knowledge. We join with all the peace loving people in a prayer for peace and with this peace, may G'd bring all of us to Israel in celebration of peace."
