It’s always easier to blame someone else for our problems than it is to take responsibility for our own actions. That is just human nature. It is something we all do, regardless of our beliefs or upbringing.
In today’s world, you find more and more people blaming someone else for their misdeeds. It’s blamed on their environment, government, parents, racism, bigotry, sexism and every other ism one can imagine.
I have news for you, there is no ism you can blame for your misfortunes. The only person you can blame is the person you see in the mirror every morning when you arise from your sleepy kingdom. Regardless of how someone treats you, either imagined or real, how you react is your responsibility.
The only person responsible for your actions is you, no one else has control over what you do.
In light of the recent terror attacks by Islamist Extremists, we find they are trying to blame Americans for what they do, they say they are only retaliating for our supposed sins.
I have only read bits and pieces of the Koran, but what I have read seems to contain a lot of violence, far more than the Holy Bible, but that is irrelevant.
Terrorism has been going on from the beginning of time, and it doesn’t look like it is going to stop anytime soon.
Right or wrong, the main problem facing the world today is Islamic Terrorism, innocent people are being killed daily. It is bad enough when military personnel are killed in the line of duty, but that is their job, it is what they have been sworn to do.
But when innocent civilians are killed while just trying to live a normal life, that is irreprehensible. Civilians are killed in war and that is awful, but war is hell, there is always going to be collateral damage.
To charge in and kill people in the name of God is inexcusable, I know of no God that would demand that of his people.
It is said there are many good Muslims in the world and they far outnumber the evil ones. This is true, there is good and evil in every walk of life, no one religion has a monopoly. If only ten percent of the Islamists are evil, that means they still out number the total population of the United States.
It’s those ten percent that I am concerned about and are the one’s that give Islam a bad name. Just like in most other groups, the ninety percent condone the actions of the other ten percent. No one says anything. Life just goes on. As long as this attitude continues, nothing will change.
We can no longer condone bad behaviour, it corrupts our society and leads to decay.
Muslims, as well as the rest of humanity, must begin to take responsibility for their actions and the condemn actions of their peers. The time of blaming someone else for our actions is buried in the past. If we don’t assume responsibility, who will?

There are always outside influences that you feel you simply cannot control. It is how one reacts to these circumstances that determine the final outcome. It is these choices that determine our success or failure. Everything happens for a reason. Seemingly on a physical level, we don’t seem to be able to control our reality, however on some subconscious level, we choose to participate in every single event that comes our way. We may not be aware of it, but that is how the universe works.
