Muslims are not terrorists
I am a Muslim from Indiana and I would like to comment about the compound found in Taos County, New Mexico.
True Islam is peaceful. We Muslims are not violent people and we are not terrorists. We do not condone violence or terrorism in any form. I do not condone the things that have happened at that compound nor do I believe in training children to use guns. One of the Facebook posters commented that Islam exists only to destroy western civilizations. That is not true. We have no intentions to destroy the western world. We want to live in peace with everyone.
Islam means to submit to the will of God. Islam, Christianity and Judaism are all Abrahamic religions, and we are all descendants of Abraham. We worship the same God that Christians and Jews do. The only difference is that we call Him, “Allah.” We revere and treasure the Holy Bible, Torah and Talmud along with the Holy Qur`an. The four most important beings in Islam are Jesus; The Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him; Moses and Allah Himself.
Extremist movements like ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, Al-Shabab and this small group based out of that compound in Taos County are not true Muslims and do not represent Islam. They are an abomination to our great religion. BRANDON HARRIS Boonville, Indiana
