“It is a common misconception, that the terrorists are trying to [convert us to their religion]. If that was their purpose, they would use entirely different means of persuasion. No, the purpose is the exact opposite; To turn us against Islam. To turn us against muslims. Because by doing that, we will support their tale of how a war exists between the west and Islam. In that way we strengthen their attempt of recruiting even more muslims for their sick and suppressing community of violence.
This is why it’s more important than ever, that we loud and clear declare; we are NOT at war with Islam! We are NOT at war with the 1,6 billion muslims of the world. We ARE at war with a few fundamentalists, who are trying to drag an entire world religion and a fourth of the world’s population under their black wings. This cannot happen. We cannot hand them that victory. In this war all peace-loving muslims are our most important allies. Together we fight for our freedom. Only together can we win.”
