Muslim killers still Muslims

I WAS disappointed to read Robert Fisk describing the people who flew planes into the World Trade Center as people "who claimed they were Muslims".

Please don't sugarcoat the issue. To be a Muslim, one must only accept the credo that 'There is no God but Allah, and Mohammed is his prophet.' The men who killed those 3,000 people accepted that.

I have no doubt that the vast majority of Muslims - like the vast majority of people everywhere - consider mass-murder to be a crime.

But to suggest that those who commit murder are not Muslims is as false as to assert that they were not human.
