The Jihad of the Pen column “Service to Mankind and Faith” mentions the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, which is a community that is sincerely serving humanity regardless of race, religion, or creed. This is the positive approach we all need to promote in order to turn the world into a peaceful place.

Totally agree. Unfortunately, there are people who claim faith in god (choose your own denomination) and wage wars, kill and maim, and go to worship. People like US presidents and Congress. It's good to wage peace, how do we deal with the other half of humanity that chooses destruction? They aren't atheists.

It's time for people to lay down their weapons and breakdance to settle their disputes. Its been more than 30 years since Michael Jackson demonstrated that said method of conflict resolution can work (there were REAL gang members in that video, ok) and now, 4+ years after his death, our country and our leadership still can't get their act together. I believe that two of the groups who would benefit the most from the application of breakdance conflict resolution theory are Muslim extremists and elderly, Caucasian males in elected positions.

Let's cut through the P.C. nonesense. Most Muslims are OK people, and there are plenty or warlike females and nonwhites. Religion is not the cause of war, human nature is, and it manifests itself behind religion, or tribal/political labels. About 3000 people died in 9/11 because airport security was so bad; 3000 in the last 12 years out of 300,000,000 American means your odds of getting killed by a terrorist is about 1 in 100,000. (you;re probably more likely to die by getting hit by a drunk driver)

It gets a little old reading people's posts about how they are so tolerant and want to live in a perfect world while simply practicing different versions of bigotry, but hell...Muslims, liberals, Christians, homeless people, and White males are popular bogeymen of the day.
