In response to Ms. Mohri

To the Editor:

I am not going to go back and forth with you here in this forum because it will not result in anything positive for anyone. We are all due our own beliefs even if some of them mean killing others for their belief.

So did you say that the comment that I made about " all Islamic Terrorist should be wiped out" is wrong. To me if they are terrorist and are going to hop on a plane and blow up a couple hundred people then yes we should try and stop them in any way possible including death to save the lives of so many innocent children and adults. So if you take issue with that than so be it. I might have been a little harsh in my letter but after a while we get sick of hearing about foreign terrorists and home terrorists that kill like Timothy McVeigh that did his dealings with the Alfred P. Murrah Federal building in Oklahoma.

I might have been to had the the Islamic but they seem to be leading the news these days but all terrorists should be hung by their ankles and let the townspeople go at them. OK, I know in our society we do not do this but we should. It really bothers me when kids cannot take a moment of silence before class because of discrimination against who know who which I believe it should be brought back and any kid that do not want to pray can sit quietly. Now you tell me how this hurts anybody's rights. The parents do this just to make an issue in the community and to divide it. It doesn't matter who if anybody you pray to it is just respect for your fellow person. If I am wrong than I will be wrong when I meet my maker if there is one which I hope there is.

Thank you and I hope I did not hurt your feelings.
