When the vast majority of terrorism is conducted by Muslim extremists there should be a concern about the potential of further terrorist activity will be conducted by the same group of people.

When there are more than 14 major conflicts in this world attributed to the fact that Muslims cannot get along with others, can you blame us for being a little phobic over the religion as a whole? You can go down the line of terrorist attacks in the last 30 years or so and find that they were conducted by men of Middle Eastern descent and they were all Muslim.

If Mr. Taj Khan and the people he associates with in the Muslim community were to recognize this more and condemn these terrorist attacks, then maybe there would be more of an uprising in the Muslim community to curtail terrorism. The very silence I hear from the Muslim community suggests to me and probably many others that there is no condemnation. In fact, I may go as far as saying that these activities are condoned.

Mr. Khan in his column failed to recognize that the men who orchestrated the 9/11 attacks were given close scrutiny at the airports before they boarded. But there had been a lawsuit filed against the airlines for racial profiling. The airline employees knew of this and hesitated to act on their suspicions for fear of another lawsuit. It seems curious to me that this lawsuit had been filed.

One could construe that this lawsuit was very convenient for the terrorists on 9/11.
