Muslim-American Council Reacts To Bin Laden’s Death

PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA)  Reaction around the world to the death of Osama Bin Laden has been decidedly one-sided.  However, many believe that the Muslim world and Muslim-Americans, in particular, did not denounce the events of 9-11 to a “satisfactory” level.  Many wonder how these same Muslims are reacting to these most recent events.

Muslim-American and member of the Council on American-Islam Relations, Pittsburgh Chapter Executive Committee, Safdar Khwaja, joined KDKA Radio’s Robert Mangino to voice his opinion on how he believes the vast majority of Muslims are taking the news.

    ACCEPT THE TRUTH….A VAST MAJORITY of the 1.7 BILLION Muslims across the globe share the satisfaction of Osama being brought to justice, and fight for further action to take AWAY the perception that extremist groups are Islam…or represent Islam…they are SO far from the truth…and WE TRUE MUSLIMS DO NOT ACCEPT ANY extremist as a TRUE Muslim….I am so SICK of how the Media and under educated Non Muslims exploit these groups of maybe 20-30,000 extremists as the face of a Peaceful Religion that is comprised of 1,700,000,000. Join the cause for PEACE!!!! APPLAUDE THESE ARTICLES!!!!!

    What the Muslim community fails to recognize is that their relgion is the ONLY religion that has specifically targeted non-Muslims for their so-called Jihad. You don’t see christians, jews, etc. targeting others for extinction simply because they belive differently. At least not in modern times they don’t. And religious wars were always out in the open conflicts, not the cowardly sneak attacks Al Quida uses. Those simple facts are why most non-Muslims have issues with the Muslim religion. Osama bin Laden will be replaced with another crazy, and SEAL team 6 will have another target.
