I apologize that I do not have a post today. Actually, I had one, but I received a very thoughtful comment pointing out that my post was offensive to those of the Muslim faith, as it implied that all Muslims are terrorists.
It was not my intent to imply this, either overtly or accicentally, so I have removed the post. I was obviously insensitive and regret that very much. I have posted below the comment which resulted in the removal of my post.
Eva, I live in Malaysia which is a predominantly Muslim country and I have relatives who are Muslim converts. Your article suggests that all Muslim men are terrorists and I can assure you that many of my Muslim friends and relatives (male/female) are alarmed at how they have been portrayed by the media, are not as fanatical as some are and certainly do not carry a handmade bomb to detonate in the name of jihad. They are moderate in their beliefs and have no hatred towards anyone. We are all deeply saddened by the events of September 11. Did you know that a young Malaysian man who worked in one of the towers died that day too and his remains never found? Many Muslims have admitted to being ashamed of the negative impact the actions of those careless men have created. I think its time to move on....
