In the days and weeks that follow, many accusations will be raised. In our despair at the devastation of what has happened, I pray we do not allow racial/religious hatred to play a part.

There is a chance, perhaps a good chance, that this "bin Laden" idiot is involved. If so, then it has been an idiot's campaign, not an Arab/Muslim one. These are not the same thing.

Good Muslims are just as horrified by what has happened as you are. The faith of Islam is a kind one, based on many of the same fundamentals as more Western religions. It is terribly important that we remember this.

If an isolated group of "pinheads", in the name of Allah, have done this beastly deed, than THEY must be held accountable. Allah didn't deem this as right, and I'm sure the mullahs of Morocco, and Egypt, and Arabia, and Iran, and Pakistan, and even Afghanistan will agree.

This is NOT a Muslim thing! This is a terrorist thing. The Pope doesn't support bombings in Belfast for the same reason.

In our efforts to prosecute the guilty, remember that whoever did this has sinned under Islamic Law as well.
