There are those who seek to whitewash and ignore the realities of terrorism. There are those who would prefer to look the other way and deny the realities of what happened before 9/11, on that terrible morning and since. Denying the realities and pretending that Islamic terrorists are not exactly that, protects no one. At best it is disingenuous and at worst it is an outright lie. In any case, it does not make things better. It makes them worse and garners even more distrust. Not all Muslims are terrorists but any who do not actively oppose terrorism and those that encourage it are accomplices in terrorism.
