A good Muslim 

On the BBC News this morning was a man called Garri who lost the bottom half of his left leg in one of the London Tube bombings. I was really impressed with his courage and positive outlook.

You can find it on the BBC page here 'I feel sorry for them': Blast survivor's view on London bombers

Also, he was a Muslim. However his reaction was that of a good human being, irrespective of religion. He didn't hate the bombers, but just regarded them in effect as losers whose only hope of making a name for themselves was to kill lots of other people. His concern was for the people who were less fortunate than he.

I personally value this one Muslim over all the narrow-minded, fanatical, self-righteous ones that I have had the misfortune to meet over many years.
