Regarding "Inside the Minds of Muslims" [March 24-31]: I have not yet read the book, Who Speaks for Islam? What a Billion Muslims Really Think, discussed in the interview.
So why do I suspect it is another attempt to rationalize the behavior of Muslim terrorists and blame Americans for it? We are told that Muslims dislike Americans' laxity and libertinism and that an estimated 100 million Muslims approved of the 9/11 attacks, as well as attacks on civilians in general because of American imperialism. It is further cited that 6 percent of Americans approve of attacks on civilians. But it is fanatical Muslims who are deliberately killing civilians. Finally, we are told that Americans do not admire or respect Muslims. It is not likely that our admiration and respect are enhanced by the terrorist acts.

No one should attempt to judge Muslims, nor interview them, before having read the Koran. It's not very long but extremely eye opening. Congress should be required to read it.

The interview on the mind-set of Muslims answered questions I have been asking for years. The next question I have is, where do we go from here? Is it up to us, or is it up to the majority of Muslims to control the 7 percent who condoned the 9/11 attacks?
