1. Brothers and sisters in Islam,

    The Islamic communities in the west are suffering as a direct result of the radical elements within Islam that have hijacked our religion and turned it into a faith of terror. These radical elements make us look like barbaric uneducated uncivilised people.
    The advent of technology, mediums like the internet, media, press have exposed and brought to light the radical elements within Islam and questioned the validity of the Koran. Islam is unable to control radical Muslims using the Koran
    Our non Muslim friends in the west have every right to be critical of Islam and question the Koran. The Islamic community must learn to be honest, to reclaim and take ownership of Islam, or eliminate it altogether.
    1. Why are we allowing radicals to destroy our image before the whole world?
    2. Where are our honest leaders?
    3. Where is the peace of Islam we profess?

    9/11 showed the west the evil use of the koran to justify terrorist attacks on civilians.
    Some people say the majority of Muslims are NOT terrorists and we are good people wanting to live in peace.
    1. So why are the only modern day terrorists threatening the world radical Muslims?
    2. Why are we still silent, while they totally shame our faith?
    Why do we blame the west, America, or any one else, they did not write the koran.
    The problem is within ISLAM and the Koran.
    “Radicals that have hijacked Islam and destroyed any notion Islam is a peaceful religion”,
    That is a rubbish statement; their interpretation of the Koran is what promotes them.
    It disgusts me that our Islamic leaders can not or will not recognize this problem and deal with it.
    On behalf of a group of muslims living in the west we have some basic questions to ask our Islamic leaders, so they may understand our concerns and why there is so much hatred and annex towards islam.
    1. Why is the Islamic community allowing terrorists to hijack their religion to justify their hideous evil attacks on western countries?
    2. What are the true “moderate muslims” doing to prevent this abuse of our religion by their radical brothers and sisters in Islam?
    3. When the muslim community do nothing except complain about the reaction of the west to the radical elements in Islam, what do we expect them to do?
    4. We are doing nothing about them?
    5. Isn’t it the responsibility of every moderate Muslim to claim ownership of Islam, and openly denounce any Muslim using the Koran to justify their evil acts?
    6. Do you agree that when the civilized Islamic community takes control of Islam, people might view us in a different light and we might regain our dignity?
    7. Do the Islamic nations agree it should NOT be up to the western nations to clean up the mess left behind by radical Islamists?
    8. Us Muslims living in the west totally accept that as a direct result of the inaction of the Islamic community, the west have no option but to protect them selves?
    9. Why has Islamic communities failed to protect our religion?
    10. Do the true Muslims feel ashamed and embarrassed by the 100,000’s of YouTube videos and internet sites where our religious leaders are promoting absolute vile barbaric and evil doctrines in the name of Islam?
    11. What are our Islamic leaders doing to protect the name of Islam from these radicals?
    12. Why do the Islamic leaders fail to acknowledge these people are the ones totally damaging the name of Islam and turning the west against islam?
    13. What is the Muslim community doing about them or going to do about them and when?
    14. When is Islam going to accept responsibility for the evil actions of radical Muslims acting in the name of ALLAH?
    15. What does the Koran tell us Muslims about dealing with any Muslim perverting the word of the koran?

    More so, we ask what Islamic scholars are going to do about the suras in the Koran that incite violence, call for the killing of Jews and Christians.

    “…now that a Book confirming their own has come to them from God, they deny it…they reply: ‘We believe in what was revealed to us.’ But they deny what has since been revealed, although it is truth…Say: ‘Whoever is an enemy of Gabriel’ (who has by God’s grace revealed to you [Muhammad] the Koran as a guide…confirming previous scriptures)..will surely find that God is the enemy of the unbelievers.’…And now that an apostle has come to them from God confirming their own Scriptures, some of those to whom the Scriptures were given cast off the Book of God behind their backs…The unbelievers among the People of the Book, and the pagans, resent that any blessings should have been sent down to you from your Lord. ” (Surah 2:88-, 98-, 103-)

    Why does the Koran:
    Prohibit people from leaving islam?
    Condoning lying to infidels?
    Why does Islam feel the need to come out and attack our Jewish brothers and sisters and call for the elimination of Jews and Israel?
    This is only adding fuel to the fire, and it does make us look like an evil race of people following evil hatred.
    Why does the leader of Iran come out and threaten Israel and the Jews in the most disgraceful inciteful and hateful way?
    Can the islamic community see, it is there Muslim brothers that are damaging the reputation and the name of islam?
    Where is the voice of the civilised Muslim, the educated muslim, and the peaceful muslim?
    All the messages we receive from ISLAM are hatred, evil, violence, terror; of course they are going to hate us, let us as a community be honest with ourselves?
    If the West does something we dislike, we must learn to react in a civilised, diplomatic manner, and not have mad men come out declaring war in the name of Islam?
    Who is in control of our faith, Our Leaders, Clerics, or the terrorists?
    Why doesn’t have ONE clear voice to speak out on our behalf?
    We need a voice of an educated Muslim, a voice of integrity, reason, tolerance a role model for islam.
    Why have we allowed barbaric terrorists to destroy our image, our reputation, our standing, our self esteem?
    The Islamic communities in Islamic nations must understand that 95% of westerners are highly educated, well read and liberal minded. They are not fools or stupid that will be swayed by threats of violence, terrorism, deception or lies.
    How do we explain to them all the hatred and evil on the net, look at the number of hate videos on you tube, it is hypocrisy when we state islam is peace?
    We need to clean up and stop self destructing, start been part of the solution and stop blaming others, you are all foolish for allowing this to happen in the first place.

    It is NOW, yes NOW, time for islam to stop pointing the finger and to re-claim ownership of islam, control the muslims dissidents and clean out our own house, our image, our approach, our mindset.

    The fact is, if our Islamic leaders and community take direct and firm action against any radicals within the ranks of islam, there would be no need for external intervention, and we would be viewed as truly a peaceful religion, not an unruly religion where everyone is free to do what they want in the name of Islam.

    It is time that Islam rescues its own reputation and uproots the core of the cause destroying the name of Islam. The Islamic leaders are fully aware of the problem, just as we are in the west. Our Islamic Leaders must immediately demonstrate to the world they are in control of the destiny of Islam, and it is not in the hands of a minority radical element.

    They must condemn and excommunicate the entire “Islamic brotherhood” in Egypt.
    Everyone in the west is fully aware they are the chief promoters of Jihad, Shariah and terrorism all over the world, it is no secret.
    Islam must stop thinking they can continue to wash their hands of the root causes and blame every one else. No one is stupid.
    Islam must show we can live in peace, tolerance, equality and love.
    I blame the Islamic clerics that brainwash them and put hatred and evil in the hearts and incite them to commit evil acts, AT the SAME TIME these clerics live in safety and will not expose themselves to harm, prosecution, or courts, this is wrong and madness.
    Again we remind you all the problem is within islam not the west,
    Finally the request for a mosque at ground zero, shows a complete lack of empathy, sympathy, consideration, remorse, or respect. Do not add insult to injury.
    This absurd proposal has increased the worldwide hatred and condemnation of islam. We do not need a mosque there, and there is no reason as to why it has to be there.
    It is time for a REAL islamic Leader came out and say, “ after due consideration, the islamic community will not seek to build a mosque on sacred ground zero where so many innocent people lost their lives at the hands of a foolish terrorist perverting the name of islam.” We as muslims should let the Americans heal their wounds.
    It is time to treat each other equally, with respect, dignity, decency and consideration.
    Reform Islam, or will leave this barbaric faith in droves.
