Letter: Islam is being hijacked

A response to Ms. Athens.

Senator Rand Paul: So I think it is important not only for the American public, but for the world, and for the Islamic world to point out that this is not a true form of Islam.

George W. Bush: All of us here today understand this: We do not fight Islam, we fight against evil.

George W. Bush: The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam. That's not what Islam is all about. Islam is peace. These terrorists don't represent peace, they represent evil and war.

George W. Bush: The terrorists are traitors to their own faith, trying, in effect, to hijack Islam itself. The enemy of America is not our many Muslim friends; it is not our many Arab friends; our enemy is a radical network of terrorists, and every government that supports them.
