Terrorism is a crime against humanity. It is a brutal attack on innocent people.

Those who resort to or support terrorism in the name of Islam are seriously wrong.

All true Muslims denounce terrorism of any kind, and share the sorrows of its victims.

The word Islam has the same meaning as 'peace'. This religion forbids terror and violence. The barbarism that is happening in the world today under the name of 'Islamic terrorism' is the work of ignorant people who have nothing to do with religion. God forbids rebellion, cruelty, aggressiveness and murder in the name of Islam. The Koran preaches mercy, compassion, tolerance, peace, and justice. I urge people to look at the Web site which helps explain what genuine Muslims think of terrorism.
