Letter: Is Islam really peaceful?

I imagine most of your readers have read or heard about the Sudanese woman, Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, who has been sentenced to death for simply being a Christian. This is the so-called peaceful religion of Islam at work.

Oh yes, they are very caring, they will allow her to live long enough to wean her new born child, then they will kill her! Isn't that special? How very peaceful of them to do that!

What I want to know is, if these are just radical Islamists doing these despicable things, where is all the outrage and demonstrations from our "peaceful" Islamists here in this country?

If they are silent on this issue, we can only gather from their silence that they support this horrible kind of religious action and are way off base with acceptable religions in our country.

I read once that Islam is truly a peaceful religion, but only when the entire world is converted to Islam! Think on that for a while, folks.
