Terrorists do not represent Islam

Published 02/07/2015

My heart goes out to the families of the victims of the terror attacks in Tunisia, Kuwait, France and elsewhere. The terrorists represent themselves only, not Muslims or Islam, which prohibits such acts. Let's not forget that most of their victims are Muslims.

They are a threat to us all and we should not allow them to divide us. Foreign policy and interventions which strengthen extremists and weaken moderates should be changed.

We should salute the brave Muslims who turned themselves into human shields to protect Western tourists.
