Islam and Terrorism

Bayaa, Dalia
March 2008
Teen Ink;Mar2008, Vol. 19 Issue 7, p21
The author comments on people in the U.S. who judge Muslims by what they hear on the news and believing that every Muslim is a terrorist. She believes those in the U.S. might also call themselves terrorists because the country is unintentionally terrorizing Iraq through war. The author argues that someone who takes part in terrorism is not a true Muslim because Islam is a religion that means peace.
