Islamic fanatics are just being true to their faith
It is predictable that a Muslim would deny that his religion has anything to do with terrorism but, contrary to Mohammed Samaana's letter (Write Back, July 2), the terrorists do represent Islam, while those who defended unbelievers, noble though their actions were, do not.
The Koran and Hadith are clear. Unbelievers are dirty kufr, like apes and pigs, vilest of creatures in the eyes of Allah, must not be befriended by Muslims, but must be fought against and slain until they submit.
The Koran cancels all its early peaceful comments and replaces them with the sentiments above - something Muslims never mention when they cherry-pick the nice bits and omit the bad.
Islam is a false religion invented by a false "prophet" who robbed, raped and beheaded his way across ancient Arabia. In emulating him, the fanatics are being true to their faith.
