    Hey Reality...You have some really caustic words. You sure your not muslim buddy because you seem to spew the same kind of hateful and uninformed comments as the towel heads do bud. I do hope God will give you a book from the non fiction section soon because if we keep having people like you sound off, our entire world is going to burn because you will be on the other side of the big bonfire fueling a needless fire.
    As a muslim, I condem attacks such as these not only on the basis of Islam but also on the basis of common sense. One more thing for any christian, Jew, Muslim, etc. Follow your books to the T and you will eviscerate the earth. They are words from a much more archaic time to help guide and mold humanity instead via fear and promises. These people are following those idiotic words to the T and are killing others and themselves. Save yourselves and find redemption not in hate and redemption and other stuff along religious lines, but rather in cognizant productivity.
