During the first day of Ramadan according to an article on AOL, mullahs were calling for the destruction of the United States, Israel and all enemies of Islam.
We are constantly being told of the peaceful nature of this great religion. Why such hatred? I am not particularly happy with suicide bombers; no one I know including myself, hates the terrorists' brothers, sisters or their relatives.
With a few exceptions Muslim leaders have been slow to condemn those who maim and kill in the name of Allah. Instead of being condemned and ostracized, these murderers are celebrated by their political and religious leaders and always without exception buried with honors and turned into martyrs.
On German television in June, Yasser Arafat made reference to the slaying of Israeli teen-agers at a disco as "heroic martyrdom operation" and to the suicide bombers as "models of manhood and sacrifice for Allah and the homeland."
