MUSLIMS NEED TO SPEAK OUT AGAINST TERRORIST ABDUCTIONS

The A section of the Oct. 23 News had a picture of Margaret Hassan, whom some have called the "Mother Teresa" of Iraq, pleading for her life after being abducted by Muslim terrorists in Iraq. On the picture page that same day, I read that "Muslims around the world are observing the holy month of Ramadan."

Webster's defines holy as "set apart to the service of God or a god." I can only wonder in disgust at the absence of an outcry from those who really believe this is a "holy" time. Or perhaps these fundamentalists hold sway with the majority in the service of a god. If Islam is really a religion of peace, where is the condemnation -- from anyone? The silence is deafening, and getting louder.
