The Islam Rift

Faysal Mahamed
RE “NA ATTACK FORETOLD” [Jan. 19]: In the wake of the terrorista attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris, many moderate Muslims and world leaders have expressed the sentimento that the attack does not represente Islam and that Islam is a peaceful religion. These sentiments are not entirely correct. At best, the moderate Muslim can claim that is or her Islamic beliefs are peaceful, but  this is in stark contrast to the jihadists and Islamists who have their own Islamic beliefs that include unimaginable violence against any person or state deemed a threat to their extremism.

It is time for Western leaders to lift their heads out of the sand and face up to the truth that, depending on which Islam you are talking about, it is a pretty dangerous religion to peace and harmony in the world. This global fight against radical Islam requires the cooperation of moderate Muslims, but it has to begin by recognizing the two distinct and contrasting faces of Islam.
