Brother, Peace makers do not revenge. If the God we serve is the creator of every thing including man and woman, then no one can revenge for himself. He can wage war without using you. Why are you threatening people and kill people who are innocent people.

Peaceful co-existence is the bottom line here. It’s of no use pointing fingers. I, as a devoted Muslim, I love & preach peace as Islam itself means ‘Peace’. Peace that starts from love for ones inner-self and extended to loving of others, aimed at pleasing our Creator. Generalized and double sided blame game that is being put on Muslims around the world is tantamount to peace and is not called for, as it brings unnecessary divisions to the peaceful man kind.
