Muslims like most other people love peace and are easy to get along with. I know this, because although I am not a Muslim, I live in an area of Australia (Coburg) where there are many Muslim people. They are nice friendly people, and they make great kebabs and pizza!
People who think that Muslim and non-Muslim people can’t get along should come and visit us in Coburg or a similar place, and get a dose of reality.
It’s when you oppress, invade and wage war against other countries that you are likely to get attacked by a “terrorist”.
This has nothing to do with religion. If Israel oppresses Palestine and wages war against it, Israel is likely to be attacked. If the USA oppresses poor countries with crippling usury and debt, and wages war against Arab countries to steal their oil, the USA is likely to be attacked.
The best defence is to be nice to people, while not allowing them to hurt or exploit you. It is especially important to be gentle and not to overreact. This is a common principle in Judaism and Islam – do not overreact. ‘A tooth for a tooth’ is the limit of just retaliation, it is not allowed to take a life for a tooth, or ten lives for one life.
In the 9/11 attacks about 3,000 people died. The USA’s reaction to 9/11 has destroyed many more lives in Afghanistan and Iraq, at least 100 times as many, including at least 10 times as many Americans. Also, the countries attacked by the USA did not have anything to do with the 9/11 attack on the USA.
I believe the USA used 9/11 as an excuse to attack these countries, primarily to steal oil, and because that idiot president’s family is involved in weapons manufacture.
Fair trade, forgiveness of debt, and friendly conduct are the best insurance against “terrorist” attack.
