“But he is a Muslim”, my son insisted. “He must be a terrorist.”
Where he gets these ideas from, I do not know, but now was not the time to probe. “Muslims are not terrorists”, I told him firmly.
“But all terrorists are Muslims”, he insisted.
“That doesn’t mean that all Muslims are terrorists. Most Muslims are against terrorism.”
“Okay, all terrorists are Muslims”, he insisted. “Same thing.”
“No, not the same thing. In any case, terrorists do not have a religion; no religion asks you to kill. Terrorists worship only Terror.”
Will he ever get it? Will the world?
