The American media does not hesitate to offer news concerning Islamic terrorists in order to further an image of Muslims as hell bent to violence and hatred. The Indonesian government is attempting to wipe out terrorist groups in its nation. The Jakarta Post reports residents in Central Java have refused to allow members of the radical Jama’ah Tabligh to stay at their mosques. One mosque leader told reporters, “their presence made us uncomfortable.. Residents feared that they were part of a terrorist group. so we did not allow them to stay here.” He then informed police who arrested the group.
The vast majority of Muslims are peaceful people and seek an end of terrorism. This image simply is not news to the average American TV station or Internet site. They insist on portraying an image of violence and destruction whenever the word, Muslim, appears.
