In his letter to the editor, Brian Dockter cites the "silence" of the Muslim community.

Perhaps Mr. Dockter hears this silence because he does not know, or care to know, the opinions of Muslims in his community, state or nation.

For Muslims in all of these areas condemn and have been condemning the actions of terrorists with a strong and unified voice. Most recently, for example, the Council on American-Islamic Relations issued a press release calling for the immediate release of all hostages in Iraq.

I would invite Mr. Dockter, and all others who share his concerns, to contact their local CAIR chapter in order to explore the views of the Muslim community and to form a bond of mutual understanding and trust.

Terrorism affects us not as practitioners of one faith or another, but as human beings, and as such, we should join together in our united struggle against it.
