Written by Gary R. Hess

Another terrorist act happened on September 8th at Jakarta, Indonesia. The attack injured more than 180 and killing at least nine. The latest attack by al quaeda was just a touch on what this horrific group can do.

Since this isrepparttar 125418 case, Muslims aroundrepparttar 125419 world have been put into a small basket and considered as terrorists.

Terrorists have been around sincerepparttar 125420 beginning of time, but now are put intorepparttar 125421 spotlight. The fanatic groups are not limited to just one race or religion, so why then is there such a need to call one group “Muslim Terrorists” and yetrepparttar 125422 other terrorist groups are not identified by a religion?

Mohammad wouldn’t approve of such horrific acts, especially againstrepparttar 125423 brothers of Islam (Christianity and Judaism).

Callingrepparttar 125425 fanatic group “Muslim Terrorists” is like calling all Muslims terrorists.
