FL: Islam Itself is at Root of Terror
Earle Greene, Tallahassee Democrat, 7/21/05 http://www.tallahassee.com/mld/democrat/news/editorial/letters/12180325.htm Re: “To crush terror, find its cause” (column, July 18). I could not agree more with Eugene Robinson’s column, but it was disappointing that he did not offer any insight into understanding the cause. Unlike Tony Blair’s assertion after the London bombings that the cause is linked to promotion of “a perverted and poisonous misinterpretation of Islam,” politicians should stop trying to whitewash Islam and recognize that it is the root cause. Any individual who will take the time to read the entire Quran will find that it provides a clear ideology supporting and encouraging terrorist activity. The terrorists are nothing more than Muslims who are taking their religion seriously. As long as we continue to allow our thirst for oil and commitment to tolerance to keep us in denial of this dirty truth, we will continue to live with the bombs.
