Give the Muslims a break please

Listen world, just because someone is Muslim doesn't mean they are a terrorist.  This war between America and Islam is getting quite ridiculous.  It is as if Americans don't believe that Christians or Jews do anything wrong.  Believe it or not, Muslims are people too, shocker, I know.  What happened to the Golden Rule that we were all taught in third grade?  I will reiterate it here, just in case it has been forgotten: "Treat others the way you wish to be treated."  Now, does everyone follow that rule?  Of course not. That is why we need police officers and the like, but I'd like to think that I live in a world where most people still follow that rule.  And I'd also like to believe that following a certain religion does not preclude or exclude you from that rule.

That being said, can we please stop fighting over the building of a Mosque/Cultural Center in New York City?  I sincerely doubt that this is some kind of shrine that the Islamic faith wants to build to mark their victory over America.  I honestly believe that is probably one of the best things that can happen to this country right now.  We need some re-education.  We need to learn that all Muslims are not the reason for the horrific attacks and terrible loss of life that occurred on September 11th, 2001.  Radical, ignorant, terrorist fools were responsible.  Was Timothy McVeigh a Muslim? No, no he was not, but guess what?  He killed innocent people none-the-less.

Americans need to realize we are fighting terrorists who happen to be Muslims, not Muslims who happen to be terrorists.  Why punish millions of innocent Muslims for no reason, why don't we accept them, like we have in this country since its inception?
